Hey guys, what does "front steps" mean? Here is the context: "But nice, Bean knew, is another word for boring. Ivy sat nicely on her front steps."

Could you transform it/ simplify it?

Many houses in the US are built with the ground floor raised a little above terrain. Mine is. This makes it necessary to have a short set of stairs, often two, three or four, leading up to the front door. These are the front steps.
