Single Story and Rambler Homes in Clarksville

Ramblers in Clarksville - A single story house, commonly referred to as a “rambler” simply means a house with no second floor.  As house styles and characteristics evolved through the years, builders found that they could save money by going up.  Thus, more two-story homes began to populate the landscape.  However, the need for single story rambler homes has never diminished.  Materials and floor plans have become much more sophisticated through the years but the single story home, more often known today as a “ranch” still provides the same advantages:

Benefits of a ranch or rambler style home – There is something so simple and convenient about a rambler or ranch style home.  No stairs, all on one level, laundry room close to bathrooms, and easy to add on to when space is needed; it all just makes sense.

Energy Costs/ Maintenance - In most ranch or rambler style homes, the roofline is much closer to the ground, which reduces energy costs and makes it much easier for the homeowner to maintain and keep repairs.  Since, the entire roof can be insulated, all the air is kept on a single floor, the energy cost to heat, and cool the home tends to be less.  In fact, costs can be sizeable less than the same square footage in a two story home!

One Level Home Benefits- Empty nesters, retiring baby boomers, and those with physical disabilities or mobility limitations are particularly attracted to a rambler because there are no stairs to deal with.  If needed, a rambler also provides easier wheelchair access.  Many of us care for aging parents and a home with no stairs is extremely important.  Ranch style homes are also perfect for the elderly.  Many people don't like the hassle of running up and down stairs for laundry or any other reason.

Young Family Benefits - Ramblers are a great idea for families with small children, as you won't have to worry about baby gates falling or children playing on stairs.  Day care providers and parents with small children may just feel more comfortable in an environment that has no stairs.  

Other Benefits - One-story homes tend to offer owners great natural lighting with the effort to bring the outside in and because the footprint is generally larger in a single story home, the room sizes tend to be larger.  Builders also tend to employ fewer walls, which provide a very open and airy feeling throughout.  Often ranch homes are quite reasonably priced, incredible convenience because your bedrooms, baths, laundry areas, and living space are all right at your fingertips, and many are in smaller neighborhoods with more lot size and square footage.

Buying a rambler can be a great investment and often get you a great value for your money!
