These empty-nesters designed their dream “in-town home” by evolving the kitchen in their former home to meet their needs today.The owner loves to entertain, and there were three key elements behind the design to make this kitchen a cook’s dream: accommodating a generous banquette for seating, an L shaped island with two full-sized sinks and dishwashers along with virtually indestructible Pyrolave countertops with integrated drainboards.
The 60″ Wolff range with double ovens has stainless steel tambour doors on either side to keep cooking oils, spices & condiments out of sight. It is flanked by a steam oven and microwave drawer on one side and a Miele coffee bar on the other. The oversized custom hood was inspired by a visit to the DEANE showroom and is a focal point of the cooking area. The cabinets on the island are wire-brushed Rift Oak with a custom stain, and the storage cabinets with plate drawers, spice rack inserts, and deep utensil holders feature a painted finish. The long countertop along windows is done in blackened stainless steel and used as a buffet serving area.
