I love writing my favorite spaces series and, of course, family rooms are worthy of special attention as they have become the heart of the home, perfect for watching “The Voice” or the latest movie, for playing Scrabble or Pictionary, reading a book or doing homework. The five I have selected are all very different but all are fun in their own unique way.
Whether watching the Masters on TV or watching someone swing their golf club outside the picture window, this family room overlooking a golf course in Coral Gables had a HUGE wow factor. The built-in cabinetry was stunning and the large screen TV and surround sound were just the icing on the cake…or the hole in one, as golfers might prefer to say.
Blissful luxury exists in this Coral Gables estate home. Soft comfy couches, large coffee table for snacks and drinks, coffered ceilings, graceful arches, and surround sound…what a way to spend an evening!
Imagine sitting in a tree house with 360 degree wrap around balconies and watching “Survivor” or “Castaway.” It is the unexpected that makes Coconut Grove so special. This family room was delightfully original.
The ultimate Man Cave. It had possibly the largest TV screen I have ever personally seen in a home with a unique projection system and, of course, surround sound that could blow the roof off the house. The owner and his friends spent countless hours there rooting for the home teams: the Miami Dolphins, the Miami Heat, the Miami Marlins, University of Miami… ANYTHING Miami. Let there be no doubt, this is a sporty family room in a sporty city.
This family room in Snapper Creek Lakes estate felt like an upscale cabin in New England. The warm wood floors, the interesting beamed ceiling, and the built-in bookshelves cocooned and cosseted. The home has a state-of-the-art-electronics system so the music emanating from the sound system could be controlled throughout the property.
