Although this space is listed as a "private room," the entire downstairs is yours. My living area is upstairs. There is a living room with fireplace, movie room with TV, your bedroom/bathroom and the backyard is really a fourth room! It offers a great deal of privacy if that's what you desire. I live in a neighborhood with large trees and a beautiful creek running through the backyards. My home is right off of 6th Avenue... a highway 5 minutes east into the city or 5 minutes west into the hills.
