As you may know ranch style homes were common up until the 90’s as lot sizes began to shrink as our population grew and those who needed more space had to move up vs out. Thus the boom of multi-story homes began. If a traditional ranch in the Charleston, SC area is what you want I will gladly show them to you, but beware; most “traditional” style ranch homes were built pre-1990 which makes them over 20 years old and homes over 20 years old have higher insurance premiums. On the bright side it was standard building practice to build brick homes so many ranch homes of that era were built well, and brick homes are a good thing in hurricane prone areas like Mount Pleasant, Isle of Palms, Sullivan’s Island, Kiawah, and James Island. Newer home communities like Daniel Island don’t have “ranch style” homes for sale simply because the community is so new, and it finding even a single story house there will be difficult. One thing to consider in lieu of a one story home is buying a house that has an elevator (assuming you can afford it). It is very common in the Charleston, Mount Pleasant, Daniel Island, downtown Charleston and other areas to build a house with an elevator. This serves two purposes: one is for those who don’t want to walk up stairs, two the Charleston area is almost all in a flood zone so homes need to be built off the ground.
