The influence of post and beam midcentury structures can also be found in other styles popular during that period. "Contemporary ranch" best describes this example. Note the beam detail at the gable combined with a wood shingle roof, stone and wood siding.

Nice use of stone masonry around the entrance...not symmetrical and no play on the roof line, but it offers protection and a visual interest to the front door.
