The ranch-style home found its heyday in the years between the 1940s and 1970s.
Back then developers and builders weren’t trying to squeeze as many homes on a property as possible to maximize earnings.
Also called ramblers, the homes are single-story, have simple roof lines, and allow for plenty of space inside and out.
Wouldn’t it be nice to have homes like that again?
These days you’re lucky if you have 10 feet between your neighbor, and you’re hoping-and-praying that your side windows don’t look directly into your neighbor’s home.
Is the ranch-style home a thing of the past?
Let’s hope not, but it certainly is refreshing when older ranch homes are modernized to allow the perfect mix of yesterday and today.
This ranch at 3901 Harlanwood Drive is a modernized home on nearly one-half an acre in the heart of Fort Worth.
Built in 1960, this ranch is a 4,131 square-foot, single-story home that has been updated to celebrate the classic style but offers the amenities of a newer home.
Large, open spaces and bedrooms are abundant in this home. Featuring four bedrooms and three full bathrooms, 3901 Harlanwood Drive also has an exercise room (or home office, nursery, or whatever you need) two spacious walk-in master closets, a designer kitchen, two living rooms, and much more.
Of course, there are plenty of windows allowing for natural light and views of the large yard and pool.
While ranch-style homes might not be priority number one for today’s developers and builders, the style will always be adored and demand will always be there as long at homes like 3901 Harlanwood Drive continue to hit the market.
This move in-ready ranch at 3901 Harlanwood Drive is listed by the dynamic duo of Ted & Ida Olsen of Williams Trew Real Estate. The home is offered for $1.05 million and is available for immediate viewing.
