The addition and renovation to this home created the opportunity to repurpose the original kitchen into a functional butler’s pantry, and create a bright, spacious open concept living space combining an expanded and updated kitchen and family room. Using a Windermere door style common to the home’s English Arts & Crafts architectural style throughout, incorporating the homeowner’s design into custom leaded glass door panels was a natural and dynamic feature.

The new butler’s pantry features a clever paneled pass through into the formal dining room and both pantry and kitchen feature Danby marble countertops sourced from Vermont.

The open concept living space opens the small, cramped rooms common to homes of the period while maintaining a faithful design sensibility.
