Coming into this welcoming 1820s farmhouse is now a joy with a new potting-mudroom, and cold storage for root vegetables. The new hexagonal kitchen addition feels open to the outside with lift-and slide windows that move at the touch of a finger, opening to the terraced farm vista below.

Rustic and earthy tones abound throughout the kitchen, with a new walk-in pantry with custom pullouts for spice storage, pot hangers and corner pantry storage.

A rough-hewn ashlar stone backsplash is set off by the dark deer-brown granite countertops and sapele butcherblock at the island. Wide-plank hickory flooring responds to the custom shiplap hexagonal ceiling above to make the most of the unique shape.

For a client that loves collecting, cooking and gardening, this kitchen offers abundant custom storage and display space to give a home for everything, including a custom piano surround and bookshelf, glass cabinet for china, and built-in storage throughout. This is truly a rural retreat for the most avid home chef and gardener.
