Ugh. You have to wonder how much it’ll cost for the next owner to fix this nastiness.

Seriously! Why have a fireplace when they could have two TVs, side by side? ;)
Several volume builders had trouble w/ fireplaces and TV areas in the late 90′s, not sure why, I recall a Perry plan that had the fireplace off center w/ an adjacent shelve for a large (and deep) TV, centering a fireplace later will be costly and probably not worth the effort.
What, they don’t make 16×9 fireplaces anywhere?
The ‘entertainment center’ on one side of the fireplace was a popular amenity in tract homes. Who wouldn’t spring for the extra $650. or whatever when buying a new home?
This home is just following the trend: Fire and TV – equally important.
Oh and I especially like the fourth to last pic in th RE listing of the attic access pull-down stair w/ dangling, shadow-casting cord.
Fireplaces in Houston seem such a waste.
I’m surprised no one is commenting on the price of this place. 300K in the burbs for a 3/2 house?!!! I understand it’s Sweetwater, but you could find a nice two story in RiverPointe or Greatwood for that price and it would have an additional 1000 sq/ft. And the interior, WTH? Vertical Blinds and Formica counters?! Good luck selling it at this price, probably won’t happen.
A triptych is so much more pleasing to the eye — they should have made a third hole in the wall for an aquarium.
