What Type of House is This?

Q: I was having dinner with a friend last night and was talking about my ongoing reno/remodel. My friend asked me ‘what style house is it?’. I was stumped. I went to school for design, I have an architecture based education and yet I have no idea what bests describes this nondescript style of architecture.

The house was built in 1948. Ranch, Bungalow, Cottage, they all seem to work and yet fail to accurately describe the style of the house.

Could you please ask your readers to help define just what this house is?
