The size and condition of the existing kitchen and back entry of this early 1900 home had no relationship to the scale and quality of the rest of the stately home. The windows in the new kitchen now open to the back for watching activities in the yard. High, east facing windows over the cabinets grab morning light while maintaining privacy from the neighbors. A new mudroom is discretely tucked in the new back entry corner. The cherry cabinets tie into the vintage wood of the rest of the interior. By relocating the 1/2 bath and adding on minimal square footage, everyone can now gather in the kitchen for evenings of entertaining and not get in the way of the hosts.
