Listings Ranch Style Homes

Ranch Style Real Estate Magnolia, TX

You know a ranch home when you see it. These homes are wide, one-story homes are the quintessential American structure. If you’re in the market for a home in Montgomery County, there are many reasons why you should include them in your search. 


What Makes A Ranch Home?

Traditional ranch-style homes are single-story houses with open layouts. Often, they feature long, low-pitch rooflines and large windows on the front. Where things change is the floorplan. Most ranch homes are rectangular, but others feature U- and L-shape designs. Other features include sliding glass doors that open onto the patio or backyard and attached garages.

While other home styles may get the attention, ranch homes offer benefits to the discerning home-buyer. 

Benefits of Traditional Ranch Style Homes


As our lives change, the ways people use their houses do, too. There’s nothing standing in the way when all bedrooms are on one floor. Today’s bedroom may be tomorrow’s office. A nook one day may be a craft area later on. 

Families Are Welcome

For young or growing families, convenience often wins out. Ranch homes feature all rooms on one floor, meaning access to sleeping, kitchen, dining, and laundry areas is a breeze. Stairs are a significant safety concern for small children once they become mobile. A gate may sound good, but they don’t always work. With a ranch home, there are zero stair concerns. 

Keeping Noise Down 

Homes built with two stories may seem attractive, but they come with major drawback: Noise. Second stories don’t block sound well, which means playing kids, flushing toilets, and knocking pipes are heard throughout the home. With ranch homes, those matters, well, aren’t issues. 


Streamlined Upkeep 

Having one story and a low-pitched roofline means access isn’t a problem for ranch homes. This makes exterior maintenance and repair safer than other home styles. Cleaning gutters and windows won’t require a long, heavy ladder.
