4519 Media Room

Walking through the French Doors from the Living Room, the Media Room area is rather large compared to most every other home here in Mount Vernon.

Measuring approximately 16 feet x 10 feet, it overlooks the Mount Vernon/Coral Shores Canal. A great view while relaxing inside, working at your desk, doing hobbies or watching your favorite movie or show.

Always fun to wave to the
boats as they go by...

The present Owner has a long couch at one end and a 55 inch Flat Screen TV at the other end with a desk under the TV. It's a great set-up that most of the other condo homes here do not have. Because of the French Doors, the Media Room can be closed off from the rest of the house to keep TV/Movie sounds low.

This area is unique in that the design that the present Owner chose during the 2017 renovation was to replicate an old outdoor porch. The ceiling is Tongue & Groove #2 Pine (not "Bead Board" paneling but real T&G pine boards), all varnished with multiple coats of Spar Varnish. The Trim around the windows and doors is #2 Pine as well.

The rear wall is Shiplap boards to further provide the image of a backyard porch of years gone by with the flooring made up of Ceramic Tiles in a "painted brick" design. The image is of a brick floor to a "porch" that has been painted multiple times over the years. In reality, the floor is a hard ceramic tile that will never peel or require any maintenance.

But the "look" of this room makes for an incredibly cozy feeling, just right for an old "Beach House" personality. The curved pine trim at the aft end of each rear corner of the ceiling was steam-bent by hand to form that rounded appearance.

A "Monte Carlo" ceiling fan was recently installed for lots of room air-flow.

Two large windows overlook the large backyard and a new storm-rated door with an opening screened window leads to the back Patio.

The electric Awning can be wound out if the morning sun is too bright in the Media Room during the day. The distance that it can go out is variable so if you need just a bit of shade, just let it go out a bit. A very handy way to vary the amount of sunlight in the Media Room without closing the shades.

Note that the back of the house where the Media Room is located, faces the east and in the evening, it is always in the shade. No bright sunlight coming through the windows to interfere with TV or movies.
