What is the definition of a ranch style home?

A ranch-style home, often referred to as a 'rancher' in Australia, is characterised by its single-story, elongated design with a low roofline. Originating in the United States in the 1920s, this design was inspired by North American Spanish colonial architecture. At Smart Homes, we've embraced the ranch-style home's open-plan layout, ensuring a seamless flow between living spaces, making it perfect for the Australian way of life.

What is a modern ranch style house?

A modern ranch-style house takes the classic single-story design and infuses it with contemporary elements. This might include larger windows for natural light, open-plan living spaces, and the integration of indoor and outdoor areas. At Smart Homes, our modern ranch designs often incorporate sustainable materials and energy-efficient features, aligning with the Australian emphasis on eco-friendly living.

Why are ranch-style homes so popular?

Ranch-style homes have gained popularity for several reasons. Their single-story design makes them accessible and easy to navigate, which is especially appealing to families and older residents. The open-plan layout fosters a sense of community within the home, making it great for entertaining. In Australia, the ranch-style home's emphasis on blending indoor and outdoor spaces resonates with our love for the outdoors and alfresco living. Smart Homes has seen a growing demand for ranch-style homes as they offer both functionality and aesthetic appeal.

Why does a ranch style home stay cool?

The design of a ranch-style home is inherently climate-conscious. Its single-story layout ensures that heat doesn't rise and accumulate, as can happen in multi-story homes. The wide eaves, often found in ranch designs, provide shade and reduce the amount of direct sunlight hitting the windows. At Smart Homes, we often incorporate energy-efficient materials and design techniques in our ranch-style homes, ensuring they stay cool during the hot Australian summers and warm during the cooler months.

Do ranch style houses have verandas all around?

Traditionally, ranch-style homes feature a simple front porch or veranda. However, in Australia, it's not uncommon to see ranch homes with wraparound verandas, taking advantage of our country's beautiful vistas and providing additional shaded outdoor living space. At Smart Homes, we offer the option to customise your ranch home with a veranda that suits your preferences, whether it's a simple front porch or an expansive wraparound.

I would like to acknowledge and say thank you to Travis, Craig and Chris for their support over the last year to build my home. The quality of the home is the best that many people have seen in the local area (including the Property Agents, Bank Valuers and Friends). There are always ups and down during construction, but Smart Homes was able to push through and get things done without jeopardising quality. Overall, I am highly satisfied with the workmanship and the Construction team and would highly recommend Smart Homes to anyone. I would also not hesitate to utilise them again in the future. Thanks a lot guys and all the best! Maria :)
