Advantages of Split-Level and Multiple Level Homes

Any home with two or more floors has its advantages!

There are one, two, and three-story homes, but a split-level home is also an option for someone considering a new home. One can build completely new with Ameri-Star Homes to create a house of their dreams in a style of their preference. We have over 40 appealing, customizable floor plans from which to choose, split-level plans included. Why choose a split-level or multiple level home? Consider the advantages it offers and how it could benefit you!

Maximized Floor Space

Split-level homes are designed in such a way that they maximize as much floor space as possible while creating both communal and private rooms. Their compact form makes the most of every square inch; if there is an empty nook, it is likely room for a closet or another functional space. 

Limited Stair Climbing

Split-level homes also minimize the effort in climbing stairs on a daily basis, an advantage appreciated by retired folks and young families alike. All split-level houses have a raised front door, through which one can either go upstairs to the main floor or downstairs to the basement. One only needs to descend or ascend half a staircase to go in and out of the front door.

Flexible Bonus Room

Split-level houses all have basements which would be considered the lowest level of finished living area, which gives families a bonus room that can accommodate multiple purposes. Separate from the main floor, it offers a private space for a home office, rec room, guest bedroom, rental, and more. Basements can have one main room or spacious, divided rooms.

Raised Main Floor

There are benefits to having the bedrooms, kitchen, and main living areas above ground-level. One benefit is that it offers a better view from all sides; another is that you are safe from flooding. There is also a sense of privacy from passersby outside who are on lower ground.

Stylish Curb Appeal

A split-level or multiple level home offers comfort, convenience, and compact functionality. Tying it all together is a fantastic curb appeal. Split-level houses can adhere to practically any style, from modern to rustic.
