This Clayton condominium underwent a full-scale renovation that transformed it into a warm and modern home with the kitchen as the centerpiece. With its contemporary, sleek design, the kitchen feels even larger than its 350 square feet because of the open floorplan and generous sight lines.
Custom European frameless cabinetry with a sleek metal-edged door style in horizontal grain sapele mahogany complement the new Acacia wood floors that run throughout the home. The cabinetry provides ample storage with full-height pantries and large pot and pan drawers across the cooktop wall.
Fifty-four inches of full-height Subzero refrigeration with integrated wood panels blends seamlessly into the cabinetry while the Wolf stainless steel double ovens, gourmet microwave and built-in coffee maker all follow the clean lines created by keeping the upper door heights aligned.
The 36” Wolf gas cooktop was installed flush with the quartz countertop and is accented by a subtle 3-dimensional ceramic tile backsplash and a Wolf stainless steel chimney hood.
The large 2-level island houses a multi-functional Kohler sink with a stunning Dornbracht faucet, a wood paneled Cove dishwasher and a Subzero undercounter wine refrigerator with matching wood door frame. The PolarStone countertop includes a waterfall edge on one end and a 4” thick contrasting Dekton quartz bar-height top on the other – allowing for multiple seating levels and functions.
The highlight of the kitchen is the custom-designed, built-in wine cabinet that graciously welcomes you into the kitchen as you transition from the foyer. The unique see-through cabinet has clear tempered glass on both sides that is framed in the same mahogany wood as the kitchen cabinets. Interior LED lights illuminate the climate-controlled storage racks that hold over 200 bottles of wine, making it as functional as it is beautiful.
This exquisitely renovated kitchen is the epitome of simplified luxury.
