A granite countertop, matching one in the kitchen, stretches from one end of the living room to the other and holds two dozen pictures of “family, and friends that are like family,” say Whitley.

On the opposite side of the room, a wall of oversize windows and sliding-glass doors gives way to a patio.

The room, with chocolate suede couches and a television mounted above the red-brick fireplace, melds seamlessly into an open kitchen and bar area.
