“As a result of practical one-story planning, the typical ranch house provides the ultimate in efficiency and livability. It features long, low, rambling lines, a generous use of glass for an abundance of sunlight and ventilation, plus eye appeal that is perfect for town or country.”
Natural materials like wood, brick, and stone are used abundantly. Windows are larger and the large, plate glass windows are common to this style. Single car garages and carports remain secondary to the facade presented at curbside.
These homes are optimistically sunny and modern with “Atomic Style” noticeable through out as modern design meets functionality for the active, young families to whom these designs were targeted.
