We love everything about this window-filled corner, not to mention the view. The picture window maximizes the view, while the double-hungs give ventilation. We also love the low built-in book cases that have function as window seats.
MMH - two sided display; no need to sheet rock some areas? -- tear out a section of wall between din/liv or kit/fam and build shelves into the studs, paint. Makes it more open, and useful at the same time!
