The kitchen is designed as the center of the home. A two-story atrium and large, south-facing windows provide ample light for this uplifting, bright space. The workspace is simple and efficient, and planned for ease of preparation, cooking and cleanup.
These views represent two of many possibilities for the finishes in the kitchen. Calacutta marble countertops, soapstone, wood and white painted cabinets and wood or tile floors create an inviting, warm space to spend time with friends and family. However, a variety of countertops and stone flooring can be used as well. All appliances are energy-star rated and electric, including an induction cooktop that is quickly becoming the preferred method of cooking.
Upon entry, guests are provided with open views to the dining room, stairhall and the family room beyond. The kitchen entry can also be seen, but can be conveniently closed off by the pocket door if desired. Borrowed light originating from the kitchen atrium space provides ample natural lighting for the stairs and hallway. Interior finishes are clean, modern and sophisticated.
The spacious room is located at the rear of the home to better enjoy the landscape and tranquility of the back yard. The bay window provides views in three directions. Additional windows facing north and south provide for a bright, open yet private sanctum. All bedroom ceilings are vaulted to a height of 12 ft. The master bedroom is provided with a small, operable window at the peak to provide natural ventilation during the warm, summer months.
