Ever heard of a 1/2 story? A 1 and a 1/2 story house? Well, there is such a thing. A half story is often an attic level that has been turned in to living space. The center of the room is full height while the sides of the room are less than full height.

he has a good point Know the difference between a condo and a townhouse? A condo is a living unit with another living unit above or below it. The condo can be one or more levels. A townhouse is a living unit without another living unit above or below it. A townhouse may be attached to another living unit, however, it doesn’t have to be.

anchor Another distinction is between a two-story house and a split-level house. In a two- story house, you enter on the main level and there is a level above the main level. In a split level, you enter on a landing entryway – there is a level above and a level below the entryway.

There is a ranch style and a ranch. A ranch style is a one level house with living space on one floor. A ranch is a large farm for raising animals.

How about a farm versus acreage? A farm is land used to grow crops or animals. Acreage is just land.

Hope this helps in telling the difference in the styles of property.
