This kitchen remodeling, while modern in its planning, incorporates traditional English detailing such as the mantel-style range recess. A display shelf over the cooking area houses treasured serving pieces, and an appliance garage near the sink conceals the electric teapot for daily afternoon tea. The adjacent family room includes large windows to provide sweeping views of the home's generous grounds. This space also provides access to outdoor dining and recreation spaces and offers a comfortable place to relax. The project also includes a spacious and functional mudroom area for the family's four boys and a light-filled home office. Hidden in the center of the layout are a small half-bath and a pantry. The remodeling bridges the style of the new with the elegance and dignity of the original 1950's brick home. The remodel consists of 1,290 sq ft.

We love the window bench in the family room, where lots of guests are able to sit during gatherings.
