Ranch-Style

A ranch style home (aka rancher) is also a single story home, but has a larger, rectangular footprint (compared to a bungalow).  The ranch home is a derivative of the wide Spanish hacienda.  Ranchers grew in popularity in the 1950’s as huge tracts of land were turned into suburbs with larger plots than the typical urban plots.
