Ranch Style House

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.

Stairs

Beautiful architecture!

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.

Dining Room

This dining room is breathtaking!

    this house is ridiculously gorgeous. I totally want it!

  4. I too love ranchers… especially mid-century modern ones. This one is gorgeous but a little too fancy-pants for my little hooligans!

  5. that laundry room is DIVINE.

    the color palette of this home is very similar to ours.

    smiles to you.

  6. This is no ordinary rancher! I love it when a house wraps around a courtyard as this one does…and those ceilings give it great style too!

    This is a lot different from the zillions of ranch style homes built here in California in the 60’s. I love a single story home and this one is gorgeous!

  8. Karen said,

    You must have posted this for me, didn’t you! If there is one house of all the posts I have seen so far, this is THE ONE we could live in! Absolutely lovely, well appointed, and no pretention!

  9. Lana Waller said,

    Love this house!

  10. OK, well, um, I may have just Pinned the whole thing! Luciane, you keep topping yourself. GREAT ideas for all of those ranch style homes that are crying for an pretty update. Thanks!!!! xo

    I admit this is beautifully done, designed and decorated to create a harmonious whole with gorgeous materials. And since this is undoubtedly a builder’s model home, it is understandable that it doesn’t have much personality, designed to have the broadest appeal, and why it looks like a showroom and not a family home. But it’s too vanilla for me and screams ‘California’. (I’m on the east coast.) The house, while appearing modest from the front, has a huge footprint and with the stone patio (which is gorgeous) takes up nearly the entire lot. There’s only a tiny ‘L’ strip of green grass. Personally, I’d prefer more yard and landscaping and trees. This house and patio looks like it was built for entertaining a crowd. The only thing missing is a pool. I’d prefer a more private and lush ‘secret garden’, but that’s just me. And while I admire the look of those disappearing doors leaving no barrier between the inside and outside, we couldn’t have that where I live – too many bugs! It’s all lovely, though.

    OMG I love absolutely EVERYTHING about this house!!! I pinned every picture LOL

    I just love houses that look small from the curb and you step in and are awed by the inside beauty and size!

    A.MA.ZING.
    Love x3 the house! Thanks for the post Luciane 🙂

  14. Luciane,
    I love the floor plan to this house. I live about 3 miles from Newport Beach, this looks like a Southern California house. Very pretty.

  15. Mary said,

    Call me crazy, but don’t birds and bugs fly into the house through that big open wall?

  16. I think about these things all the time I see an open door!!! LOL I guess we don’t like bugs, eh? LOL

    I too, am on the east coast and would worry about the bugs, birds, ants, squirrels, raccoons, etc. floating in anytime they wanted.
    But, this house is gorgeous, and I want to build one exactly like this. Only, instead of leaving that entire wall open, I’ll be going with huge French doors that open to the outside area. Having lived in L.A. for a period of time, you could completely get away with the open concept… but not here on Long Island!

  18. Lisa said,

    I love this almost perfect floor plan, exterior, and all the extra details. It would be super perfect if it had a major jolts of color for the interior. It’s a bit beige for me but love the architecture!

  19. Kimberly Schmidt said,

    Love this house so much. Wondering if you have a floor plan layout? Wondering on size of lot that would work in sunny Florida.

  20. Hello Kimberly.

    Unfortunately I don’t have the floor plan with me. Please try to contact the designer directly for more details.

    Thank you.
