Rouken Glen

A beautiful tudor in the Rouken Glen neighborhood of Larchmont New York, in Lower Westchester County New York, had a dated 1950s kitchen. The homeowner, who loves to cook, had huge quantities of cookware and serving pieces, so her new kitchen needed to have lots of storage. However, she also wanted an open feel with minimal upper cabinets. Dearborn Cabinetry worked with architect Zach Schweter to design the new, open layout with a large island with ample seating. Dearborn developed a custom door for this customer who wanted a very clean, shaker style look with minimalist details. Cabinetry color is Benjamin Moore brushed aluminum; countertops are Pietra Cardosa limestone; appliances by Thermador; sink by Shaws (Rohl).c 2013 Dearborn Cabinetry LLC

Pietra countertop - How has the pietra cardosa countertop held up? I have heard mixed things about how durable it is but it is so beautiful--and this homeowner sounds like someone who really uses the kitchen!

She hasn't mentioned any concerns with it. It should be sealed annually, and you should expect it to darken over time. My experience with limestone is that it can darken more in areas that are used heavily. My advice to all my clients is to know yourself and the limits to which you can tolerate entropy in the kitchen. Jet mist granite is a great, more durable alternative for you if you are not so tolerant of "patina". In my opinion, her counters still look beautiful 2 years later, and yes, she loves to cook. Hope that is helpful!

They came from ABC Carpet and Home, along with the glass cabinet against the back wall. They were purchased a little over a year ago.

The kitchen in this Larchmont Tudor evokes a more industrial feel, where freestanding pieces pick up on the rustic wood elements throughout the house.
