Interior view of kitchen with custom pot rack

This early 1900's stone and brick house had a cramped kitchen and a rear entrance addition that blocked views to the yard. We were asked to enlarge the kitchen, add an area for a breakfast table and improve the entry. By demolishing the existing rear entrance, we were able to create a large addition that houses a new mudroom, kitchen and breakfast room. The addition is long and narrow to preserve several mature Japanese maples, visible through the breakfast room bay. The addition mimics the roof lines of the house, but is clad in wood shingles, siding and a coated copper roof to distinguish it from the main house and recall the family’s Maine coast cabin. A clerestory above the cooking area provides ample light throughout the year, and provides passive cooling. Windows and doors open the large interior volume to the maple, the outdoor garden and patio. Photos: Jeffrey Totaro

Yes, these are hardwood butcher block, and they're quite durable--of course they'll develop a patina of use the more you use them as cutting surfaces.

The backsplash and floor tiles are also slate. (Sorry, I don't have notes on the type.) As for white cabinetry, see the white pantry cabinet in this photo--looks great with the blue-green-gray slate!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

A faceted window seat adds sitting room and storage to the dining area. Hinged doors provide access to the bench's cargo space.
