What Houzz contributors are saying:

Inside, the house looks much the same as it did when the MacMurrays lived here. “My parents were children of the Depression,” says Kate. “They bought things with the intention that they would last. There was no thought of redecorating for style reasons. In fact, we had many pieces that had belonged to the Porter family. They liked them; the pieces worked; and so they hung on to them. They simply did not have a throwaway mentality.”The effect is that of walking through a living museum, and the fact that almost all of the furniture and accessories are original to the house creates an authenticity that is rarely seen and nearly impossible to duplicate.Daily Chores on the FarmThe kitchen is outfitted with green painted floors (more charming for the wear), white cabinets and an oak countertop Fred MacMurray made himself. “He made it with a lip that let the water drain back into the sink,” says Kate. “My sister and I were the dishwashers for the household, and one evening I told him I appreciated that lip. He explained that when he was in college, he earned money by washing dishes at a fraternity house. He hated how the water dripped from the countertop, so he had made sure to include this feature in the counter he built.”The 1930s range still works, as do all the other vintage appliances. “The only thing we’ve had to replace is a lightbulb in the refrigerator,” says Kate.

This is Fred McMurray's kitchen which was created by his parents who lived through The Great Depression, so did not throw things away, but bought things of good quality which lasted. I knew pale green was popular in kitchens in the past, but had not seem it used on the FLOOR - most effective! Like that idea of white walls with floor-boards painted in a gentle colour!

This is the kitchen of the late actor, Fred MacMurray's farm in Sonoma Valley, CA. Can you believe how it reminds one of our grandma or aunts' kitchen? Right down to the working old stove and refrigerator! He actually made the wood countertop, complete with a lip on the edge.

I love that this is really a kitchen of its era and not contrived. Also the fact that Fred MacMurray built the countertop himself and thoughtfully put in the detail of the drainage lip (wish there was a close up of that). But my favorite part is the askew bin pull on the bottom left. So not perfect!
