This kitchen is in a beautifully restored, six-level Beacon Hill townhouse. The kitchen is tucked in the original sub-level servants’ kitchen and looks onto the property’s private back garden. A built-in triple pantry wall contrasts the rustic eat-in nook, integrated with the built-in window seat and highlighting the antique farm table while leading the eye through the window and into the sunny urban garden beyond.

Employing a transitional approach for the design, elements give a nod to the home’s Federal style while incorporating the best kitchen innovations of the 21st century. The hearth alcove comprises an understated mantel with ventilation over a professional range. This cooktop is complemented by plenty of counterspace for the chef to prepare meals. The triple two-drawer over door combination of the integrated hutch cabinet echoes the three-bay pantry cabinet aesthetic and functions beautifully as a seamless staging area for plating fine meals.

“They are true artists. Literally, everything is perfect. Without exception when guests visit, it is the beautiful cabinetry they comment on.”
