Italian term or phrase: casa rurale \"a fasce\"
Contesto:

Nella regione appenninica, ben identificabile sebbene diversificata nei paesaggi naturali e umani giacché costituisce l'ossatura orografica della penisola da nord a sud, domina la dimora detta "di tipo italico". I caratteri generali di questa casa, al di là delle variazioni regionali e locali che assume, si possono così riassumere: è una costruzione unitaria, con tetto a due spioventi, generalmente a due piani, dotata di una scala esterna che permette l'accesso al piano superiore; il rustico pertanto risulta giustapposto all'abitazione. Giacché la regione appenninica è di natura montuosa, spesso questa dimora si è dovuta adattare all'andamento del rilievo e pertanto viene definita "di pendio"; quando i versanti montuosi sono scolpiti da terrazze, si è di fronte alla casa rurale "a fasce".

Tiered country house
Explanation:
Or hillside house.

I'd say it means tiered, as the source talks about terrazze on which it is built so it's a multi-level house built into the hillside.

Reference: Picture of "case a fasce"

Reference information:
This link (https://books.google.ca/books?id=GiLrlA4fTO8C&pg=PT6&lpg=PT6... lets you see a picture of case "a fasce". They seem to be multi-story buildings with the dwelling units occupying portions of each floor. The different units are painted in different colors.
No idea how to render it in English. This type of house seems peculiar to the Liguria region of Italy; it may be justified to leave it in Italian and provide a brief explanation within brackets.
