The all-encompassing great room is one of the most powerful adaptations that homes have made in a new informal social era. It has opened the kitchen, which has always been the "heart" of our homes, to the living room or family room. Yet, the design provides an elegance to our lives. The following are several carefully planned great rooms that are offered in the Northern Neck.
