2548 Ranch Home Ideas

The classic American Ranch is characterized by its sprawling footprint and earth-hugging profile, usually with a rectangular or L-shaped layout. Ranch homes have their roots in the Prairie style, the latter of which first saw homes with long, narrow and low elevation.

Ranch homes were meant to be simple and unfussy, hence their low-pitched gable roofs, deep set eaves, numerous double-hung or sliding windows and emphasis on backyard living rather than streetside appeal. As their popularity rose during the 1950’s era of mid-century modernism, many Ranch homes also incorporated the clean aesthetic of mid-century design.

Traditionally, Ranch homes were meant to be single-story homes. However, contemporary interpretations of the original style have resulted in variations such as the split-level Ranch style, and the raised Ranch style, which is a two-story Ranch home.

Prairie and Contemporary styles cross to showcase the perfect open-plan patio with ocean views.
