I was reading an article not too long ago about small spaces and how much more comfortable we usually feel in smaller homes when compared to really big ones. That’s when I thought the best kind of house to live might be a ranch style house, especially when you don’t want to deal with stairs and too much to clean. A ranch style house is more practical and the energy seems to flow easier. We’re all connected, the rooms are easily accessed and you don’t have to worry about climbing the stairs every time you forget something in the other level of the house.
This close-to-perfection ranch style house was built, designed & furnished by Spinnaker Development and Newport Beach Interior Design by Details_a Design Firm. Photography by Bowman Group Photography.
I hope you enjoy it!
The Beauty of a Ranch Style House
I love what the builder did with the driveway: 36″ concrete pads with 4″ mow strips of grass. Helps for drainage an run off water as well.
The foyer is always the place to express your personality and what to expect in the rest of the house. Sources: Floors: the floors are from Du Chateau Flooring, Lugano is the finish. Colors: All the trim & finish carpentry were sprayed with a lacquer finish in this home. Painting: Z Gallery.
This dining room is breathtaking!

Colors: The ceiling and trim colors are the same. Sherwin Williams “old quaker”. The beams are all painted with a lacquer finish.
Open House Plan
I love this table, but unfortunately it was built by someone that isn’t in the business anymore.
A nice view of the living room and foyer.
This is why so many people choose to live in a rancher.
Cozy and open at the same time.

Kitchen Dimensions: This space is roughly 20′ x 18′ to the header that separates the kitchen from the family room. Ceilings: These are 8′ ceilings. The builders coffered the ceilings 6″ to allow for the second course of crown moulding and the T&G ceiling detail, it helps out dramatically on shorter ceilings.
Notice the neat walk-in pantry. The pantry size is 5′ x 5′.
