Classical Ranch House Plans

Ranch House Plans

The Ranch style is one of the most popular types of home designs to date. Ranch Houses (also known as California Ranch Homes, Ranchers, or even Ramblers) first began to be built in the 1920s, but they rocketed into popularity as many of the baby boomers started building homes of their own.


The primary characteristic of a classical set of ranch house plans is its long, low shape. Ranch home designs can feature anything from hips to gables, and covered porches to dormers, but it still has that uniquely American profile. Another feature commonly found in ranch house plans is the minimal use of decorations. The main idea behind ranch home design is that you are combining modern philosophy with the American West -- with an emphasis on livability and comfort.


Allow me to introduce you to one of The Plan Collections newest Ranch House Plans -- the Marysville.


This is a perfect example of Ranch Home Design! The covered front porch and classical ranch style welcome one and all. Upon entering, you are greeted by an area so open, you'll wonder how this home can possibly be under 1,700 square feet. The Living/Kitchen/Dining areas have no dividing walls, and they share a vaulted ceiling. It's just so spacious!


The Marysville offers several other awesome features, including a large vaulted master bedroom (complete with master bath and walk-in closet) and a charming backyard deck/patio, but I'll let you form your own conclusions.


If you like Ranch style home design, you're sure to love the Marysville. And why don't you check out the rest of our Ranch House Plans while you're at it? You'll be gad you did!
