Amazing Single-Story Homes for Sale in the Sacramento Area

It’s true — two-story homes give you more square footage with a smaller footprint. But many home buyers still prefer the ease of single-story homes. Just think: no lugging the vacuum cleaner or baskets of laundry up and down the stairs! Single-story homes are able to incorporate design aesthetics that make them appear larger, such as vaulted ceilings. They’re also easier to maintain, as windows and gutters are easy to reach with a basic household ladder. And for aging residents or those with mobility issues, one-story is the way to go.

In the greater Sacramento area, there is no shortage of single-story homes. After all, our wide-open spaces are ideal for ranch homes and bungalows, as we have more room to spread out than do our crowded urban counterparts. One-story homes run the gamut, from sprawling country estates to modest historic properties to traditional homes in suburban neighborhoods. Following are some amazing single-story homes in the greater Sacramento area.
