That Dining Room (middle, center of photo above) sure looks far away.

How far is it really?

According to MLS, 17 feet (the length of the galley Kitchen).

Which means that the wall of windows on the far side of the Dining Room is 31 feet away (17 feet plus the length of the Dining Room, 14 feet).

Does it look that long to you??

P.S.:  one sign that a photo has been stretched:  standard-size objects (fridges, sinks, counters) in the foreground of a photo look impossibly large.
