Rocky River Living

The development of the architecture and the site were critical to blend the home into this well established, but evolving, neighborhood. One goal was to make the home appear as if it had been there 20 years. The home is designed on just under an acre of land with a primary concern of working around the old, established trees (all but one was saved). The exterior style, driven by the client’s taste of a modern Craftsman home, marries materials, finishes and technologies to create a very comfortable environment both inside and out. Sustainable materials and technologies throughout the home create a warm, comfortable, and casual home for the family of four. Considerations from air quality, interior finishes, exterior materials, plan layout and orientation, thermal envelope and energy efficient appliances give this home the warmth of a craftsman with the technological edge of a green home.

Room width - We have just tore down our fireplace to accommodate a 16ft depth addition. Our room is 17' wide with a vaulted ceiling. We love this look but our TV is 52" and our fireplace is a 42" I believe...we are trying to determine if we can make this fit. Also, is there a hearth in front of cabinets?

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Shane D. Inman added this to 7 Ways to Rock a TV and Fireplace Combo
4. Texture twist. You can use texture when combining a fireplace and television on the same wall. The extra texture actually makes the components subtler; the eye skims over the TV and fireplace, instead focusing on the wood, stone and cubbies. Design tip: Even if your fireplace is front and center, you can camouflage it by using the same neutral colors for the firebox as the surrounding stone.
