This kitchen in a stately old Federal style brick home features Quality Custom Cabinets
A new arched opening connects the dining room to the kitchen
The original windows were important to the integrity of the symmetry of this historic home -- of course we worked around them!
The owners of this stately Federal brick house are fortunate to have a treasure trove of old photos of the house, passed down from owner to owner, or contributed by thoughtful neighbors. Here an earlier 40-50's era kitchen is pictured in an old real estate brochure for this house...
...before we designed the new dining room arch, the kitchen and dining room were connected through a narrow single door.
...before this 1970's remodel replaced the metal cabinets with wood.
Already by c. 1905 the original rear ell of the house had been rebuilt, as can be seen in this view about twenty years later. Note the spindly little trees out front -- these have now grown into majestic overhanging shade trees that tower over the house today!
The stately old house took a beating in the Hurricane of 1938, blowing out most of the windows, destroying nearly all of the wood-framed outbuildings, and toppling one of the four brick chimneys.
The kitchen looks out from the corner of the original brick house to these cheerful and beautiful gardens.
