This kitchen originally had a long island that the owners needed to walk around to access the butler’s pantry, which was a major reason for the renovation. The island was separated in order to have a better traffic flow – with one island for cooking with a prep sink and the second offering seating and storage. 2″ thick mitered honed Stuario Gold marble countertops are accented by soft satin brass hardware, while the backsplash is a unique jet-cut white marble in an arabesque pattern. The perimeter inset cabinetry is painted a soft white. while the islands are a warm grey. The window wall features a 5-foot-long stone farm sink with two faucets, while a 60″ range and two full 30″ ovens are located on the opposite wall. A custom hood with elegant, gentle sloping lines is embellished with a hammered antique brass collar and antique pewter rivets.
The butler’s pantry glows with honed Macchia Vecchia book-matched marble slab backsplash and countertops. The traditional inset cabinetry is painted a soft white, with display pieces spotlit by the integrated lighting in the upper glass display cabinets with integrated lighting highlighting dishes and serving pieces. Pocket door cabinets hide small appliances, and the paneled twin SubZero twin columns keep the galley space feeling seamlessly cohesive. A dishwasher, microwave, and steam oven complete this elegantly functional space.
