This window is 45" x 72" - boxed out so it forms a window seat.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Mary Prince Photography added this to My Houzz: Updated Federal Style in Massachusetts
This staircase and window, painted in high gloss white, replaced a dark, narrow-walled staircase accessible from the original kitchen. The Bocci pendant chandelier, like many of the light fixtures in the home, is a reflection of Jillian’s taste for modern design elements.
