Viewed from the doorway of the vestibule, you can see how the family room contains odd angles, defying accurate room dimensions. The entire area might span 31' x 17' at various parts but the most common sense measurement should not include the breakfast nook, still leaving a very usable 24' x 17' space. Hard to miss how the massive fireplace is the focal point for the room.
Moving over to the archway that brings you from the kitchen into the family room we have this view. You can see how easily the largest of any sectionals can be accommodated to create a cozy TV room if you choose not to have a media room downstairs.
This third view of the room from the breakfast bar reveals much more of what this room offers. Here are some of its features: bookcases and storage cabinets which flank the fireplace, a two-story ceiling with indirect lighting, a central vac port, and wall space to exhibit your family photos or artwork.
This is a slightly different view also taken from the breakfast bar. One of the bedroom wings is accessed through an unseen doorway at the far end of the built-in entertainment center. The open doorway to the left of the built-in hutch leads back into the vestibule.
A closer look at the entertainment center and the doorway to one of the bedroom wings.
This next photo was taken from the bedroom wing doorway which shows how the kitchen and family room blend so well together.
This close-up view of the fireplace shows that it has a Violetta-granite hearth and face accented by full, bullnose ridges. It is a fully functional, wood-burning fireplace.
If you are a fan of watching TV in front of a cheery fireplace, you will appreciate that the current owner made one of the cabinets next to the fireplace a wood bin!
This last view of the family room is from the breakfast nook.
This view from the kitchen of the fireplace is so majestic it had to be included. Imagine what artwork you might want to have above your fireplace. Of course, it will be highlighted by a directional spotlight.
The vaulted, family room ceiling has openable skylights which are controlled by remotes. Of course there are screens to keep out flying insects.
