|NOTES||Designates asymmetrically massed, one-story houses with low-pitched roofs and rambling shapes; may also be used for the main dwelling on ranches. During the late 1940s and 1950s, the ranch house became associated with the work of architect Cliff May (1908-1989), who often used open plan buildings with large areas of glass. The designs became popular and were assimilated by other architects after the publication of two architectural pattern books by "Sunset" magazine, "'Sunset' Western Ranch Houses (San Francisco, 1946) and "Western Ranch Houses by Cliff May" (Menlo Park, 1958).|
