5. Midsize Ranch with Plentiful Amenities
Square Feet: 1,992
With plentiful amenities and unsurpassed functionality, it’s no surprise this mid-size rancher makes the cut. Eye-catching triple arches in the entry, multi-level trim, and a Palladian window create an elegant brick exterior. The inside feels spacious, with vaulted or tray ceilings adorning the living, family and dining rooms, along with the master suite.
Double doors open to a living room toward the front of the house, offering privacy for an office, a den, or a library. The family and dining rooms adjoin to create a large living space warmed by a hearth and fireplace.
The kitchen design hums with family life featuring a breakfast bar, multiple work-surfaces, pantry, and room to move. Bay windows over the back deck brighten the breakfast nook and kitchen where entry to the screened-in porch offers even more room to spread out or take a meal.
The exquisite master bedroom in this plan retreats privately into its own corner of the house with a sitting room, full-featured master bath, large walk-in closet, and direct access to the back deck. The two additional bedrooms across the house enjoy private vanities, walk-in closets, and share a full bath. The plan also sports a three-car garage and option for a basement, helping this unassuming rancher live big.
