Discover Orange County Ranch Homes For Sale

One of the most popular styles in the 1950s and 1960s, Orange County Ranch homes for sale encapsulate the postwar ideal of informal family living, with contemporary features and detailing suited to a new way of life. The large picture window frequently present in these designs, for instance, is meant to create a tableau of the happy family home, like something out of a Norman Rockwell painting, while the lack of stairs make the homes great for raising children. In order to combat the standardization of mass produced materials, home designers have also often added traditional touches to these homes, from Colonial cupolas to decorative gable ends of metal or wood. The most striking examples of this tendency are the styled Ranches, houses which adapt other traditional styles, like Tudor or Spanish, to the Ranch's familiar single-story layout.

In Orange County, Ranch homes tend to offer between 1,700 and 4,000 square feet on large footprints of (at least!) a quarter acre. The open floorplans characteristic of this style have given residents a lot of freedom in terms of upgraded and renovations, so each home has evolved into its own unique slice of SoCal real estate. Some of the more exciting features you can expect to find include:

  • cedar closets
  • open gourmet kitchens
  • vaulted ceilings
  • attached garages
  • wood burning fireplaces
  • large backyards

There are plenty of houses on the Orange County real estate market, but few are better suited to being called "home" than the Ranch style. Take a look at the listings to discover why this winning style has been aptly described as "modern inside, traditional outside."
