Modern Ranch House

This rustic-elegant gable-roofed 3 bedroom 3.5 bath ranch house is all about easy indoor-outdoor living on one level and is inspired by the early modern houses of California architects like William Wurster and Joseph Esherick. A key feature is the generous lanai or summer living room with window walls opening fully to the garden. At the front of the house the great room includes an open kitchen with a two-tiered cooking and buffet island, a dining area in its own window bay, and a dramatic cantilevered hearth for extra seating and display.

Additional features include a floating counter and glass-enclosed shower with skylight in the master bath, a sitting area in the master bedroom with access to the garden, walk-in showers in the other two bathrooms, and a laundry and powder room near the living room. Construction is simple and straightforward: the concrete foundation slab is the floor itself; the siding -- which is board and batten over plywood -- is the structural wall panel system.
