The custom cabinetry, dining areas and exceptional lighting impart an urban sensibility to this dramatic kitchen, while rustic touches, such as the antler chandelier, create the feeling of a vacation retreat. Wood, granite and stainless merge in this kitchen to create a pleasurable working environment while seed glass cabinet doors relax the feel; adding subtle depth and the drama of a full-view window connects the space with the greater outdoor area. This custom designed, highly useful pass-thru combines the rustic feel of Knotty Pine with more formal elements such as polished granite and architectural brackets. Cut limestone stairs ascend through a landscaped garden, accentuating the importance of the front entry. The low-maintenance landscape is studded with natural boulders, tethering the house to its surroundings.
