On the Market: Designer Rancher in Downingtown
Want to live in a house so stunning its makeover made it into a major magazine? How about this one, which made it into ours?
If you’re the sort of person who peruses magazines looking for picture spreads of beautiful, stylish houses, you might recognize this one.
But not from the photo above. Try this one instead.
Look familiar? It should if you’re a regular reader of our print edition.
This is the living room of the home of Erika Pak and Miles Huffman in Downingtown. Wayne-based Studio Robert Jamieson turned this run-of-the-mill 1950s ranch house into a showpiece in 2016, and we featured it in the July 2016 issue of Philly Mag.
(I can’t seem to call up the online version of this photo feature, so to refresh your memory, here’s the print feature, reproduced on the Studio Robert Jamieson website.)
By wrapping the stairs to this Downingtown designer ranch house for sale’s basement in reclaimed redwood, Jamieson created a focal point for the open main living area Pak and Huffman desired.
It also draws your eyes to the efficiently arranged, up-to-date kitchen and its adjoining dining room. It also provides space for storage in the kitchen.
And beyond the skylit dining room, another Jamieson upgrade, lies the family room.
Sliding doors in this room open onto a paved patio and roomy backyard.
Beyond the living room fireplace lies the master suite, which has its own private balcony and side entrance.
Jamieson also reoriented the master bedroom closet and gave the master bathroom a rustic modern look.
Two more bedrooms and a hall bath flank the living room, and the partially finished basement contains laundry facilities, storage space and a beamed-ceilinged rec room.
Live here and you’ll be able to Wow! your visiting guests with an interior that the outside of this house doesn’t prepare them for. You’ll also enjoy easy access to West Chester, Exton Square Mall, and the Pennsylvania Turnpike.
