California to American Ranchers

Originally called The California Ranch or Rambler, the Ranch Home Style not only was very popular during the 1950′s and 60′s, it also became the predominate home style architecture in the United States.

A uniquely American home design the architecture is known for several characteristics such as:  single story, symmetrically shaped, low roof line, attached garage, and living areas separate from the bedroom area. Ranch style homes embody a blend of modernity and the American West.

The early build out of the American Ranch home became associated with tract-home neighborhoods that sprung up all over the country during the post-war economic boom that virtually defined middle-class america. Thus their sheer numbers repelled some buyers but in the late 1990′s the architecture began a come back. Younger first time home-buyers find ranch homes affordable in many markets, and the single story living attracts older buyers looking for a house they can navigate easily as they age.

While the tract-home phenomena ceased in the 80′s its renewed interest morphed into many modern-day builder’s take on the basic features of the Ranch Architecture and it is still widely used in what can only be called Custom Designed Ranch Homes. Charlotte is blessed with many of these modern replicas.

Charlotte Split-Level Homes for Sale

Also popular but available in much fewer numbers is what is known as the Raised Ranch and often called split level home architecture. These ranch homes are 2 story but often built into a hill or slope and thus the multi-story design is not very apparent from the curb or from a casual glance.
