A multi-area renovation, this project included a new kitchen and butler’s pantry as well as a retrofit of a barn on the property. The new kitchen is a fantastic example of a transitional style, with period-specific cabinets that incorporate modern features such as concealed hinges and a receded toe – elements not usually found in period kitchens.

For the barn, the project created an office space and bunkhouse, including a cute little piece of cabinetry, nestled into the barn’s rafters. The design preserved the original beams and floors, creating a lovely contrast with the new, white painted cabinetry.

The rooms are finished with soapstone countertops throughout, save for custom mahogany counters in the pantry.
