Hello ! I have found this
the area of floor around a fireplace in a house
Is this sentence correct ? Can “floor” be uncountable ? Or we need an article ?

    "The area of" defines "floor" and so it doesn't need an article. Yes, you may say it's uncountable here. It's a grammatical structure like "she's the kind of girl who ..."

    It's not a "sentence" it's a dictionary definition.
