Georgian ranch home gets re-imagined with modern farmhouse touches


This 1960’s era ranch home underwent a complete transformation by Alan Clark Architects, located in Marietta, a city northwest of Atlanta, in Georgia. Ideally situated near the Kennesaw National Battlefield Park, this home had already been through a few previous renovations. The architects were commissioned to strip back the previous work and reset the palette. Reduced to the bare studs, this 5,000 square foot, two story (basement and main floor) home underwent a complete re-imagination.

A new chefs kitchen, a guest suite, family room spaces, and an expanded garage/home office space were added…all housed within modern farmhouse undertones. A new lap pool and landscaping fences completed the composition. Landscape architecture design by Southern Roots Studio and construction by Build CooperJones of Marietta.


What We Love: This dated ranch offers a brand new layout with bright and airy living spaces in a beautiful modern farmhouse style. The project team did a fantastic job of creating cozy and inviting interiors with the use of materials and finishes and furnishings. Overall a wonderfully updated home for family living and entertaining.

Above: The windows were by Loewen window company. They are the contemporary style with thin mullions and sash lines. Wall sconces are sourced from Circa Lighting.




Above: The tub is a stone resin. The floor and wall tile is porcelain. The “chair rail” cap that tops the wall tile is marble, as is the herringbone patterned inlay of the niche. Very practical, low maintenance materials for a luxe look.




Above: In the laundry room, the black wall sconces are the Visual Comfort SL2922BZ E.F. Chapman, Boston Functional Single Arm Library Light in Bronze. The countertop is Caesarstone’s “Sleek Concrete” with a 2″ laminated edge – looks very much like concrete. Room dimensions are 9’6″ wide by 10’3″ long. The shelves/cabinets are painted in Benjamin Moore’s “Mount Saint Anne” 1565. The shiplap wall is painted in Sherwin-Williams “Argos” 7065. The wallpaper is A Small Prints, pattern # FD23827, by “A Street Prints”. Flooring is an Italian porcelain tile, CESC’s Aragon Black, in a chevron pattern.
