The ranch architectural style generally describes a one-story home, but some Ranch house plans create split-level ranch homes or raised, ranch-style houses. These versatile floor plans, with generously-sized rooms, are sought after by families large and small. The mainly single-level homes are attractive, and offer privacy to all, allowing you to enjoy a variety of activities without disturbing others in the home. The Ranch home is accessible, so there’s no worry when older relatives visit--and no need to climb stairs to do your laundry. Ranch house plans, with no requirement for symmetry, feature varied layouts. Open floor plans create a light and airy interior in the main living area, and there may also be a separate den, family room or formal dining room. Modern kitchens include the latest, full-featured appliances, an attractive prep island, to be topped with your favorite stunning countertop surface. Islands or peninsulas also serve as a convenient spot for stools and bar-top lunches. Ranch homes make indoor-outdoor living easy, typically with large picture windows, covered porches and sliders to a big BBQ patio.Curb appeal options are many, with exteriors finished in brick, stone, stucco, wood shingle, board-and-batten siding and more.
