Woodside Estate mediterranean kitchen
 

Woodside Estate

A custom estate with Main house, Pool House, Art Studio, and detached garage. The stone and stucco house, reminiscent of rustic stone homes from the south of France, looks out onto the pool and yard on one side and inward to an enclosed courtyard on the other. Modern technology is hidden amongst the historic detailing as the whole house can be controlled by iPad's embedded in the walls or remotely on a phone.

They are douglas fir and stained with a vinegar+steel wool concoction. Look the stain up online to find recipes and then be *sure* to test it multiple times. The longer the steel wool sits in the vinegar the darker the end result of the stain.

Beautiful kitchen! What are the under-counter pull outs? - Is it trash? Can you explain the benefits? I see there's also one by the other sink. Thank you!

The one pictured is trash and recycling and can wheel all the way out to the outdoor trash cans. The other one (not pictured here) is designed to hold the veggies from the garden so it rolls out to her Potager while she gardens and then rolls back into the kitchen.

lol, I don't think they're saying that. I think they're saying they planned it very well such that they can swing in just perfectly. And you can't have any dirty dishes on the counter!

This is not photo-shopped. Everything was pre-planned and designed to work together. The faucet is set with the sprayer mounted directly behind it, versus to the side as traditionally done. The window swings open and bypasses them just as designed and intended. Yes, the counter must be clear of other items.

Thank you for the comment. These windows are custom designed and custom made by Bend River Window and Door. The placement of the sink and faucet is very important if you want to swing a window like this inward. The hardware is made by Bouvet.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

French windows. Undeniably charming and romantic, French windows beg to be flung open. Without the crank mechanism of casement windows, these have a more old-world feel. They’re ideal placed within view of a garden, where the scent of flowers can float in on the breeze.Works with: Any style
Becky Harris added this to 10 Ways to Fight Pollen at Home
7. Keep the windows and doors closed. I know, this is the time of year when I’m really excited to let the fresh air in, but unfortunately, this lets the pollen in. Keep windows shut and turn on the A/C if need be. Be sure to change your HVAC filters; HEPA filters can help trap more pollen. Note: HEPA filters should be changed monthly. You and your sinuses will find the extra expense well worth it.
