This gourmet kitchen invites friendly conversation and food preparation. Under-the-counter storage allows for window walls, maintaining openness. To preserve views, both inside and outside, the designer utilized extensive cabinet-to-ceiling and floor-to-ceiling windows.
This is a chef’s kitchen, with multiple ovens (conventional, steam and microwave), a dual range top, two full-size refrigerators, freezers, a huge pantry, extensive counter space, and an island for food prep and enjoying informal meals. Cabinetry is quarter fumed red gum and the counter tops are leathered granite. The contemporary-styled island combines custom acacia wood butcher block with a custom finished metal table-top and shelves. The pantry includes a full-size refrigerator, freezer, and extensive cabinets, and has been specially configured to accommodate canning and preserving. Supporting the open feeling, the kitchen opens to the remainder of the great room’s formal dining area, bar, and play areas, and through sliding glass walls to outdoor cooking and dining on the patio.
