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.
