The marriage of kitchen and screened porch creates the ultimate, seamless entertainment space, with a custom, 16-foot sliding door that pockets into the wall. The raised, vaulted ceiling with dropped oak beams brings warmth to the space, while the sleek, vertical-grain oak cabinets emphasize the airy ten-foot ceilings. High ceilings create an opportunity to provide cabinet space, with glass doors that showcase dramatically bright decorative pieces. Balance and symmetry abound in this true chef’s kitchen, which features stacked regular and steam ovens, dual sinks, dual dishwashers, and separate full-size refrigerator and freezer. A walk-in pantry complete with its very own pot filler for coffee is tucked just behind the kitchen and doubles as the home management center.
