Split level homes were popular from 1935 to 1975. Homeowners liked the fact that the house appeared big and that the garage was tucked under part of the house. In its earlier years, most split levels were constructed on sloping ground. As they became more popular, like our featured home, they were built on more level lots where they looked a bit less appealing. The house form did offer, however, new interior spatial planning with three types of space: quiet living area; bedroom area; and noisy living area.
