This is not my home, but mine has identical architecture. Would this be considered a "midcentury ranch?" This is a typical suburban tract home in Southern Caifornia. Mine was built in 1961.

Great article as usual Charmean. We are glad that you mentioned the window film. In Southern California and in other sunny locales, the film allows for placement of artworks on paper without fear of sun damage - the film also prevents fading of furniture and wood.

Wonderful (and very thorough) post, I'll definitely be checking out some more of these places. There's also a fairly new bar underneath The Georgian Terrace, in addition to The Livingston, called Proof and Provision. It's on the Ponce de Leon side of the building with just a lamp outside that says P&P.

I've heard about that place but never been - I'll have to check it out next time I go to the Fox. The subtle or no sign thing always reminds me of "Swingers." What was that place Halo that used to be hot like 10 years ago under the Biltmore? Similarly subtle entrance!

Thank you for the great question. That's a hard one to answer as the property where this house was built is about 60 acres. Most of the property was harvested about 60 years ago so none of these trees are "original". Most of the north Georgia mountains, and this property as well are Lob-lolly Pines, and all variants of Oak. There are also many small under-story dogwoods, and smaller Maple trees. Thank you!

I was going to invite all of HOUZZ over when my lake cottage is finally finished this fall. But that idea went away reading the staging comments. I move things from room to room often. Oh it's unlikely that I would do it in the course of one visit but friends often comment about seeing a piece in a new location and either liking it more or having noticed it moved. In so much as I'm an auctioneer and I do one open air market a year to "exchange" things the items in my homes are a core of favorites as well as pieces that transition through which is as close as I get to following "trends" . Anything gets used as a vase in an instant when a thoughtful friend brings a store bought or a freshly picked bunch of flowers and anything gets used to serve treats from M&M's , nuts, dried fruits, fresh cut up fruit or oyster crackers and cocktail sauce. We were actually shocked to find out recently that the cottage we thought was 650 square feet is actually just under 550 square feet. We are able to entertain on a moments notice without having to run back to our primary residence and get a lot of things. The new front porch which is now permitted and will soon be constructed will help us spread out larger groups and facilitate impromptu dinners. I guess I'll have to be very careful about moving things out there from inside the cottage lest I get scolded by my guests. I used to admire George Washington who would use his Windsor chairs out on the lawn so his guests could see the beautiful river he situated his house to enjoy and be comfortable. I had no idea he was being socially irresponsible moving them around.

This is a beautiful renovation.

We bought a house where the entire downstairs -- and the garage space -- were an apartment. Converting it back was, luckily, not too difficult. I wouldn't want to give up my inside, warm garage space during the winter, but I totally love what this family did. Good for them!

There's a vaguely hacienda-like look to the overhang and patio coupled with the French doors that is SO inviting - such a difference from the plain Jane "before." The interior is warm and welcoming and a lot more pleasing to survey then the contents of the old garage space! I'd hazard a guess that on 17 acres, a home was found/made/or already present for the garage's contents.

At the end of the project, I bet these folks wondered why they waited so long to do this really wonderful renovation!
