The open layout of the Kitchen and the Great Room allows family and friends to gather in the same space. The warm and inviting kitchen provides ample counter space for food preparation and, when there’s entertaining to be done, the island serves as a buffet.
All the cabinetry in the kitchen is classic white with brushed chrome pulls. Countertops are finished in Corian Solid Surface Material of a warm grey hue. Corian is a contemporary surfacing solution that is easy to clean and durable without the maintenance of granite countertops.
The segmented island has a built-in glass top stove with a vent in the rear and cookbook storage on one end via a recessed bookshelf. To the right of the island is a built-in oven with a warming drawer beneath and microwave above. Above the microwave is a cabinet for large pan storage with custom-made sections for tall baking sheets and pans.
Perhaps the most delightful feature of the kitchen is the built-in writing desk perfect for taking notes or managing the daily to-do list. Above the writing desk is a work of original stained glass portraying a butterfly and lilies. The serenity of a spring morning can be evoked when, with the flip of a switch, this recessed artwork is softly illuminated from the back.
Adjacent to the writing desk is the walk-in pantry with spacious adjustable shelving on steel brackets and a custom-made stemware rack.
This kitchen has custom-made cabinetry, electric appliances, standard refrigerator, dishwasher, and double sink.
Opposite the island is the breakfast nook with French doors opening to a 400 square foot screened-in porch where additional dining space is available.
