Most popular home styles in America

Colonial: Colonial-style homes are prevalent in older neighborhoods and historic districts. They feature symmetrical facades, rectangular shapes, and steeply pitched roofs.

Victorian: These houses are known for their ornate detailing, asymmetrical facades, and decorative elements such as gingerbread trim, stained glass windows, and intricate woodwork.

Cape Cod: Tons of these bad boys in NJ suburbs! They're typically one-and-a-half-stories and feature a central chimney, steep roof with dormer windows, and cedar shingle siding.

 These homes have features such as exposed rafters, tapered columns, and low-pitched roofs with wide eaves. They often have cozy front porches, too! Super cute.

Split-level: Split-level homes became popular in the 70s. Typically, they have a lower level housing a garage or additional living space. They often feature simple, modern designs with large windows and minimal ornamentation.

Ranch: These single-story houses have a long, low profile and typically feature an open floor plan, large windows, and simple, unadorned facades. They often have attached garages, which is a nice convenience.

Contemporary: These homes can be found in more modern developments and feature clean lines, geometric shapes, and large windows that emphasize natural light and outdoor views.

These are just a few of the most common house styles you'll encounter in New Jersey. We're not sure how to characterize this particular home, though.
