Im appraising house, not sure what style to call it.
Id say its Modern.

it has a flat comp roof 10 foot celings and is a large rectangle.
Its has a pretty plain plywood exterior.

Modern is good -- 1950's era homes like that in Denver are called California Contemporaries. In upscale neighborhoods, they sell for a premium; in entry neighborhoods, they don't.

Of course, if there is nothing distinctive about it, call it a ranch.

I would call it CONTEMPORARY. I guess that is because I'm a Californian.

If you are in an area of heavy snow, you might call it DISASTER. LOL

We have a lot of these in the Ann Arbor area and they are pretty darn nice inside. Most of them designed by Metcalf and built in the 50's. We also call them California contemporaries or plain contemporary style or even 50's contemporary. I grew up in one. Still my favorite style house.

My first reaction was Eichler. Check to see if it's a known architect, it could affect your comps.
