Capturing the easy charm of rural living without compromising on space, country ranch homes are among the most popular styles in America. These houses draw from traditional design elements that were common among early settlers and country Farmhouses, frequently appearing as unified single-story buildings.
Country ranch home plans frequently forgo the common central hallways that divide the home and instead include a Great Room that encourages unity and openness. By knocking down walls and allotting ample space to the kitchen, residents can relax and enjoy time with each other without interruption. The kitchens commonly include lots of cabinet space for extra storage and country touches such as a pantry or attached back porch. The rest of the floor plan also includes ample areas for residents to lounge and relax in, creating an environment that is as welcoming as it is cozy.
Exterior Features of Country Ranch Homes
The exteriors often exude a certain stately charm, enhanced by the presence of gables and dormers as well as wide porches that can stretch around to the side of the building – either a full or partial wraparound porch. It’s also common to find attached garages, which further allows owners amazing accessibility to every area of the home. Garages can be large enough to accommodate two or three cars and frequently include enough space for extra storage or use for hobbies and other projects.
