This gracious, Nantucket-style home perfectly reflects the homeowner’s desire for a more open kitchen and family room. To achieve this, the original wall was removed to open up the space. A large, single-level island with seating for seven was created as the centerpiece of the kitchen with a Taj Mahal Quartzite countertop. A bar area with an integrated sink and separate coffee station was added on the wall behind the island and is a much-beloved feature for a couple who loves to entertain. The cabinets are a framed inset, paneled door with a quartered bead and exposed nickel hinges. Twin SubZero columns, Viking range and a custom “tulip” shaped stainless steel hood with polished nickel mesh inserts make this room the heart of their home.
