Redefining a classic
A small addition of space has a big impact:
The new Kitchen
We added 8-feet by pushing the right rear wall out (the column is at the corner of the original wall) -providing more space for casual dining, the spiral stair, a mudroom entry and French doors to the terrace. And finally, we added a Rumford fireplace where the small window had been, and the old backdoor became a window.
The new spiral staircase takes the place of an old wooden back stair.
With the expanded view now provided by a bow window,
the walk up and down is a pleasure.
