Ready for another Dreamy Dwelling Home Tour!?! I think you’ll love love this cozy rancher! When we placed our house on the market, for sale by owner, I was put on an email list of homes selling in my area. I’m still on that mailing list and when this house showed up I knew I had to show you! After spending several years loving on my own rancher, I am always impressed by a nicely updated rancher! Check it out…
This home sits on a half acre lot with luscious landscaping.
I love this large front porch with room for a little bistro set.
Okay ready the awesome kitchen? If I ever own a rancher again, this is totally my dream floorplan. I love a gourmet kitchen with an open concept floorplan!
I love that this large island adds a pop of color, but in a muted shade. And the floors are totally fun. I looked at a house in my own house hunt with brick flooring, but the tone was very intense. This seems neutral enough to really work!
The island adds extra seating, too. I think it’s so much better to wipe down a counter right into the sink after breakfast and lunch then wiping down a table. Do you like the sink being in the island or would that not work for you? Did you see the picture below? There’s also a sink by the stove top for filling pots — pretty cool! I love the distressed shelf above the stove top. That totally works for me!
Okay, look in the picture below, do you see what I see on the left? Next to the fridge is a Miele Coffee System! Remember how I spent a few days in New Jersey recently learning about Miele?!? They have an awesome vacuum that I’ll tell you more about this week, but they also have the most amazing appliances ever! I’m trying to convince Stud that I need all Miele appliances in my kitchen remodel — they really are the best! I especially want a Miele Steam Oven!
For those of you living in a rancher or who have before, I know you’re thinking what I’m thinking — those windows! I’m also loving that built in below. My family room desperately needs a TV cabinet, but I have trouble embracing the console look. It works in the boys room upstairs, but in my family room a big black box (yes they’re skinny, but they’re still big) just bugs me. I wonder if Stud could build something similar to this one?
You know I have a thing for white couches!
I know so many people love a highly decorated home, but I’m bent towards feeling claustrophobic so it just doesn’t work for me. This is totally my speed. Interesting without being cluttered. Although visiting a real decorated home totally energizes me, I can’t ever get enough eye candy at friends houses.
I love these windows! Would you add a window treatment?!? I’m on the fence here. The room just seems a little sparse.
Beautiful hardwood floors and updated can lights, but I think a chandelier is needed here. Don’t you think?!!
Another great find for the HDTV. Anyone know where this piece of furniture is from!?! I think the console look works better for me when the TV is hanging and the cords are out of the way.
With the TV hanging there’s room for more decor, too.
Another pretty room. I love the rug in here. And the way the curtains are hung from the trim. And the desk. And the shelves to the left. All of it! Although I’d have to get a real pretty chair to add a little unexpected to the room.
The master suite is gorgeous! I love love love the walls and a fireplace in the master — yes please!
Don’t you think the fireplace would look even better with a mantel?! Minor improvement! I totally love these bed linens!!!
The Master Bath has a huge amount of storage!
I love this hall bath, too. The large Travertine tile consistent through the bathrooms is pleasing to my soul. I always am surprised by how many different floorings an owner can put into their home. I hope to remedy that in my new Traditional Home someday!
Sweet little girl room. I love the storage in this room, too.
All the rooms in this house are very generous. Although I’d change the window treatments in this room, I think the wall color is perfect. I can see Stud giving a high five to the owners right now! He always appreciates a home with neutral tones – less work for him!
Dreamy backyard, right! Plenty of trees for the intense Texas Summers and trails for the kids to ride their bikes on mini-adventures. Behind a tree I see a basketball goal, a must have with two little boys!
If I wasn’t completely obsessed with my new house, neighbors, school, church (this was the last puzzle piece we were waiting on — God is always faithful), town…you get the idea, I would totally be interested in this Cozy Rancher! It totally works for me!
Awesome renovations owners — I am totally impressed!
