Who goes for a raised ranch? I hate raised ranch style homes. I don't want to be negative but I cant stand them.

Asked by Paul Fabula, Naugatuck, CT Tue Mar 27, 2012

I know why they were built but the just never feel like a home to me. I have friends that own RR, they settled because they are just everywhere and seem to be more on the market then any style. I can't say I know anyone happy with living in a RR. Is this exclusive to my group of friends or is this a common feeling towards the raised ranch?

I live in a contemporary raised ranch. It has cathedral ceilings, sky lights, sliding doors from the dining to a magnificent porch and sliding doors from master bedroom to the private porch. When people enter my home they go..... Wow! I love your house.

I think contemporary raised ranches with open floor plan are desirable. If you saw mine you would change you’re feeling about them because they are not all build exactly the same.

I agree with Dan, however, considering that raised ranches are very common in Milford, you might want to look in other towns. If you want Milford, look in Lexington Green no RR there.. By the way, I own a RR 5 BR, 3 Ba, 4 car garage, and I like better than my last house that was a center hall colonial. No offense taken....LOL

The reasons my friends and I have spoken about in regards to not liking the ranch is the same level living and sleeping and a RR can be hard to expand. I guess you don't have that same issue with 5 beds and 3 baths but to be fair that is very uncommon.

Why would you post something like this? If you don't like them, don't buy one. Everybody has different tastes, preferences, and budgets. Live in whatever style house you are comfortable in, but don't slam anyone elses choices. Have a little tolereance of others.

I posted this because the market is saturated with Raised ranch's and I wanted to see how other people felt about them. Tolerance of others? Dan it's a house style not gay marriage.
