Bi-level Style Homes in Washington DC Metro Area

Bi-level homes are a common sight in some of Washington DC Metro's suburban neighborhoods. Also referred to as split-level homes, this particular architectural movement came into popularity during the post-WWII era with a majority being built from the 1950's through the early 1980's. The style often served families desiring more room than was available in ranch and Rambler styles. There's also a school of thought that none other than Frank Lloyd Wright designed some of the earliest examples of prairie style homes with a split feature.

Although the term bi-level or split-level often brings to mind a certain subdivision or tract home standard, there are actually a number of variations including back-split, side-split, stacked-split, entry-split and tri-level. In recent years as the style has become less popular, buyers have taken advantage of affordable prices, upgrading and renovating the homes in a variety of ways. Typical to bi-level homes in the metropolitan area are main entrances opening to a landing with stairs going both up and down to the various levels.

Bi-Level Style Homes in Washington DC Metro AreaWhile Split-level or bi-level homes are found throughout Washington DC Metro, they are especially prevalent in contemporary suburbs in Maryland and Virginia, including Montgomery and Fairfax Counties. They are generally regarded as a lot of bang for the buck and can even evoke memories of a halcyon era in American pop culture. Remember the Brady Bunch? The loveable TV family lived in a modest bi-level home that somehow had room for all of then.

As fun as kitschy memories can be, not everybody's looking to hearken back to shag carpet and lava lamps. It's also worth noting that the term doesn't have to define the final product. A recent slide-show article in MSN Real Estate showed 15 examples of how a sometimes overlooked style can be revitalized. With prices in the Washington DC metropolitan area steadily climbing, bi-level homes can well be worth a second look. It should also be noted that not bi-level homes are inexpensive. In fact, they enjoy an uncommonly wide range of prices from the low $100's all the way into seven-figure territory.
