This small California ranch is home to lots of farmhouse style.

Small spaces aren’t too confining when you have room to roam. Homeowner Jennifer Maxcy and her family live in a ranch house less than 1,200 square feet, but their 1-acre property more than makes up for the small interiors. Jennifer is a professional stylist and the her online antiques shop, The Ranch Uncommon, so she knows how to pack lots of style into a small area.

Next to the TV cabinet are several of Jennifer’s antiques from all over the world. “The blue pot found at an estate sale, and it has Chinese writing on it,” she says. “The hanging piece is a rug fragment framed myself.”


Just 40 minutes outside Los Angeles, the ranch house was built in 1959, and Jennifer and her husband completely renovated it when they moved in three years ago. The main change was to remove one of the bedrooms to create a larger living room with an openfloor concept. They took out an existing wall between the kitchen and living room. The result is a single open room where the family can cook, eat, relax and entertain guests.

Further changes included redoing the kitchen, the bathroom in the main house and renovating their 600-square-foot guesthouse. “It was a challenge to live here in the small space while we were tearing things down,” Jennifer says. “Living here with the dogs was a bit much.” But the results were worth it.
