The ranch design and floorplan style is gaining in popularity with the aging boomer market, as it tends to be a smart retirement style of home. It can be considered a subtype of modern-style architecture, which embraces open spaces and a deeper connection between indoor and outdoor living.
A typical ranch style home is a single, often rambling, story offering a close to the ground profile with both a hipped or gabled roof and an attached garage. It is horizontal in orientation uses the landscape to complement its design. A good design offers an asymmetrical approach. The floor plans often are logical & open with a rectangular, L or U shaped configuration.
Single story ranch homes modeled after the casual style of true Western houses are now being built with more dramatic features like varying roof lines, cathedral ceilings, sunken living rooms, and extensive landscaping and grounds. To set this style off, you might consider a large meandering lot with plenty of views to give yourself a sense of space and perspective in design.
