I don't think there is one answer to that question. There a a number of sizes of grand piano and it also depends on what type of furniture is near it and how the furniture is arranged.

The field stone on the fireplace is local to the area but not from this particular property.

Those are designed by Kevin Reilly Lighting. You can find the showrooms that sell his designs at his website.

This was probably purchased from the stone company, the edge detail looks as though it is their hearthstone or cap detail. If you are using cultured stone, the company you are purchasing from probably sells this as an option. It does look to be a solid length, meaning they didn't use multiple caps or hearthstones to get their overall desired length.
Hope this helps!
Cheers!

It's a buff Indiana Limestone slab with a rock face edge on it. You can custom order one from a big stone yard as it's a fairly standard material. I think that the thickness is 4" which is the standard thickness the big gang saws at the limestone quarries in Indiana cut the blocks of stone they plan to use for veneer stone.

This is not a question, more of a comment. Instruments should NEVER be placed by heating sources or drafts.

Environmental conditions affect tone, tuning and the finish of the instrument. Temperature changes are also to be prevented. This is why the best place for a piano is against an inside wall and away from any sources of heat/cold and direct light.
Usually a safe range of humidity for an instrument ranges between 40%-60%. Try and avoid sudden changes in temperature or humidity. These changes will affect the moisture content of all the wooden parts, causing them to shrink or swell. This can cause the finish to chip or crack, the string tension to change, sluggish key and action parts.

High humidity can cause the wood to warp, while low humidity can cause cracking. As the wood loosens or tenses up, the strings will be impacted by it and so will the tuning.

I have lived overseas, in a very humid place, and my piano required tuning every 1 1/2-2 yrs. I now live in a dryer climate, and have only needed tuning once in 14 years. Also, when shipped, we packaged it with coverings that are used to ship instruments to Siberia. It went by sea, and shipped in the middle of winter. When it arrived, the tuning was still perfect. It was 6 years before a tune up was needed. It is a very good instrument, often referred to as a 'battlehorse' in Europe, but having lived in two different climates, I can still tell a great difference.

Hope this helps
