Chef’s Kitchen with a View in Portsmouth, RI
The new renovated kitchen with office addition (upstairs) resides in the former two-car garage with breathtaking views of the dock. European glass hinged cabinets and pantry and a stainless backsplash modernize the Shaker cherry cabinetry which was custom-stained to match the original kitchen, now an entertainment center. The homeowner-chef can prepare gourmet meals with deluxe appliances and plenty of counterspace. A custom 39" single Elkay sink sits centered on the island which is topped with four slabs of 2" concrete counters. The toekicks were raised in this kitchen, for both clients’ comfort. Subzero, Wolf, and Viking Appliances complete the mix, including an induction cooktop, just right of the range.
The original kitchen, reminiscent of a ship's galley, has found new purpose as an entertaining center with a cozy banquette; a bar/coffee station; a 48" Sub-Zero refrigerator for drinks, appetizers and desserts; and a wine captain. The island's concrete countertop features a striking built-in sink.
