UGLY to add second story over garage only?

We have been debating an addition to our modest 1000 sq. ft. To retain our backyard space and stay away from crowding neighbors we are considering scrapping the garge to rebuild a few feet over and adding bedrooms and bathrooms above (old smaller bedrooms on the left side of the house to become master). The addition would bump back an additional 18 ft. or so for more living space and new mudroom/utilities.

I love this idea but I cannot fathom how it could tie into the old half of this ranch without completely redoing the roof for simple aesthetics. Our neighborhood is all ranches and split levels, I’m afraid it would be a sore thumb on multiple accounts.
