MacMurray Ranch

What Houzz contributors are saying:

The living room shows more of the simple country style the family favored. A rag rug covers the floor, and a red plaid sofa and chairs with wide wooden arms make for an unfussy place in which to relax. “The sofa — we called it a davenport when I was growing up — was made in the 1930s, but my parents had it re-covered,” says Kate. “My father was 6-foot-4, and he liked it because it was long. He would sack out on it sometimes.”The window was one of the slight modifications MacMurray designed for the home. “We had the large window and window seat put in, and we used to enjoy sitting on it and looking out at the land in the evenings before dark,” Kate says. “When I was a young girl, I asked Dad why someone before us hadn’t thought of putting in a window to frame such a marvelous view. He laughed and said they were so busy working, they had no time to sit and enjoy looking out the window.”

I love how this is lived-in and comfortable, and a snapshot of a moment in time. Reminds me that the best-loved spaces are not all pristine like in magazines.
