Shining a Light on Daylight Ranch Houses

By Living Room Realty, December 3, 2019

Dwellings on down-sloping lots have an advantage over the linear ranch house: These daylight ranches look like a single-level home at the street level, but go inside to find a floor below which, unlike a standard basement, has doors and windows that draw in the outside.

Check out these 5 daylight ranches on the market now, in which the back of the house has a bigger view and rooms below are ready for entertaining or renting.

12132 SW 29th Ave – The daylight ranch, built in 1964 is listed at $925,000 by Living Room Realty broker James Peterson. The house was completely remodeled with high-end windows, lighting and fixtures and sound insulation in the walls and between the floors. The home is on a quiet dead-end street with a fully fenced backyard with raised garden boxes and spectacular 180-degree views of Mt Hood and St Helens.

9233 SE Harney Ct – The .31 acre property is a bit of a fixer, but the lower level has a bonus room with a wood laminate floor, wet bar, and old mini-theater ready to be resurrected.

3231 SE Sellwood St – This home has original hardwood floors, wood burning fireplaces, and 2,960 square feet of living space. Three of the four bedrooms and 1.5 bathrooms are on the main level, while the lower level is set up for multigenerational living or a private apartment with its own driveway, entrance, full kitchen, bathroom, and bedroom

6209 SW Tower Way – The 1955 dwelling has been restored to its original architectural integrity, with refinished wood floors, new roof, and exterior paint. The vintage kitchen has refinished wood cabinets, a green apple-colored counter, walk in pantry, and modern stainless-steel appliances. There is also shuffleboard inlaid into the floor into the basement.

1405 Country Commons Lane – The floor plan of this daylight ranch allows for all the main living areas to be easily accessed from the front door. The ground floor has a family room with a vaulted ceiling, and the lower level has a rec room with a fireplace, bar, and an outside entrance.
