July 17, 2023

Finding your dream home is an exciting journey that you’ll cherish for a lifetime, from the initial consultation to the final walkthrough—but there’s no doubt that finding the perfect floor plan is one of the most exciting parts. From the flow of the home to the number of bedrooms, it’s important that your home reflects your unique lifestyle and preferences, which is exactly why Norfolk Homes offers a range of thoughtfully designed floor plans to suit all types of lifestyles—including ranch-style. 

As the popularity of ranch-style plans continues to soar, we're proud to meet this growing demand by providing a variety of layouts that embrace the ease and convenience of single-story living. With our extensive experience as a trusted new homebuilder in the Greater Ann Arbor, Michigan area, we have honed our expertise to create exceptional one-level floor plans that cater to the evolving needs of homeowners. Let us take you on a tour of a few of these sought-after layouts and discover the countless benefits they have to offer. 

The allure of ranch-style living

In recent years, ranch-style floor plans have become increasingly sought-after among homeowners for several compelling reasons. First and foremost, the convenience of single-story living is a significant draw for individuals of all ages. The absence of stairs means easy accessibility, making ranch-style homes a practical choice for families with young children or those with mobility concerns. Additionally, the open layout of ranch-style homes enhances the flow between rooms, creating a spacious and welcoming ambiance that is perfect for entertaining guests and fostering a sense of togetherness. 

Moreover, ranch-style homes offer flexibility and adaptability to evolving lifestyles. With bedrooms, living spaces and essential amenities all on the same level, these floor plans provide a seamless transition between different areas of the home, allowing for effortless movement and a more efficient daily routine. Whether you envision a cozy retreat for relaxation or a vibrant space for hosting gatherings, one-level homes undoubtedly provide the foundation for creating a sanctuary that exudes comfort, cohesiveness and convenience.

At Norfolk Homes, our commitment to exceptional craftsmanship and thoughtful design is evident in every ranch-style floor plan we offer. Let us introduce you to a selection of our remarkable one-story homes, each designed with a harmonious blend of style, functionality and quality. 

  • The Boulder: The efficiently-designed Boulder plan with an available home in Preserve at Magnolia Park in Jackson places the master bedroom at the back of the home for privacy, while additional bedrooms are situated on the opposite side. The central kitchen, dining and great room area create the heart of the home—and the three sizable bedrooms and two spa-like bathrooms ensure the perfect combination of privacy and entertainment, all under one roof. 
  • The Kensington: The stunning Kensington plan effortlessly combines functional one-story living with contemporary style. With three bedrooms strategically grouped together and well-placed bathrooms and closets, space is maximized.
