We’ve agreed that we need a home with at least 1000 sq. ft. of living space and we decided to focus on trying to find a mid-century ranch house. We personally prefer the style of mid-50s and ‘early ’60s ranch homes, plus they tend to have more room, the ceilings are higher and the layouts are more open. But the larger size also means that they’re a bit more pricey so that’s limited our options.
Finding an affordable ranch home in a decent location that’s safe from flooding won’t be easy but we’ve expanded our search. Below are some examples of wonderful mid-century ranch homes in the area. Most of them need some work since they’ve been modified over the years. Only the last three are for sale but the first house caught my eye and I had to snap a pic of it. If it was for sale it would probably be too pricey for us.
Will one of these be my new home? Only time and bidding wars will tell!
