Antique Home with Modern Utility!

We love this project because it gave us the opportunity to collaborate again with one of our favorite clients! This couple first engaged us in 2008 to reimagine their kitchen in their starter home. Now with three children and a dog, it was time for more space! They purchased an old tudor house in White Plains with the knowledge that a major overhaul was needed.

As the original house was built with a number of very small rooms, including a tiny working kitchen, we needed to restructure the entire back of the house to accommodate our client’s needs. We expanded the original breakfast room, incorporating the original butler pantry to increase the footprint for the kitchen and taking advantage of the abundance of natural light. We designed and built an adjacent double-sided butler pantry, one side with a separate full-size freezer and tall pantry cabinets and additional floor to ceiling storage on the other, as well as a mudroom with closed locker storage for each of the kids and a new powder room.

 

The new layout features an open space that has an abundance of storage, discrete locations for cooking and prep, state-of-the-art appliances (including a Blue Star range and a separate full-size refrigerator and freezer) as well as a comfortable area for other family members and friends to gather.
