Ranch Homes – Not What They Use To Be

Ranch Home at Windsong PropertiesPeople used to say that a ranch home was a simple home with no style.   Originally introduced after World War II, real estate developers embraced the simple, economical ranch in order to meet the housing needs of returning soldiers and their families.   As subdivisions sprang up around the country, the ranch style home soon became known as ordinary and cookie-cutter.

Ranch homes at Windsong Properties are far from ordinary or cookie-cutter.  Not only are there plenty of options to select from for every finish in your house, there are plenty of structural changes that are possible as well.   Optional master bathroom layouts, bonus rooms, sunrooms, basements and various different ‘flex spaces’ offer personalization for every homeowners dream.   “We have buyers who take the den or casita and turn it into a home office or even a ‘man cave’,” states Steve Romeyn, Managing Partner of Windsong Properties.  “We often see the women turn the room next to the courtyard in to an arts studio, as well.”

The ranch floor plans are designed to maximize both living space and storage space.  No longer the square ranch with 2 bedrooms, living room, and kitchen; ranch homes at Windsong’s communities are open and flooded with natural light.  Many of the plans are the popular ‘split bedroom’ design with the master suite in the rear of the house and the guest bed toward the front.  Kitchens and greatrooms share one open space, overlooking the private courtyard and patio.

“Everyone I dealt with at Windsong was very responsive and very concerned about my house.  It was like they were only building one house and that was for me,” states a recent homeowner.  Windsong’s system of project management enhances their ability to process higher levels of personalization… and the ranch home is no longer cookie-cutter.

    Windsong builds beautiful, livable ranch homes. The first home that my husband I bought was a 1960s ranch home and I can tell you – WOW – ranch plans have come a long way. Even after completely remodeling it, the home did not compare to what Steve and Windsong and building today.

    Keep up the great work!
