Ranch homes in Barrington refer less to the type of property but more the type of house. Here are the definitions:
- Noun – Ranch – a large farm, especially in the western US and Canada, where cattle or other animals are bred and raised. This would apply to California, Colorado, Utah etc but is not our real estate.
- Noun – Ranch House – a single-story, sometimes split-level, house, typically with a low-pitched roof. This is more applicable to use in the midwest and east of North America.
Ranches, or single story homes, are very popular for a number of reasons. Ranch homes have no stairs to go up to the bedrooms, and while there maybe stairs to go down to the basement, the square footage in a basement is often large, a close replica of the main level. Basements can also be walk-out, making the living space very similar in feel to that on the main level. The age range for ranch homes is wide, there were many built in the 1960’s and 1970’s. It’s not common to find new construction ranch homes, probably because the newer homes are larger and a two story home build is more suitable for larger square footage.
