The client wanted to create a kitchen and butler’s pantry that complimented the rest of the house, echoing the motifs of curved lines, marble and timber.

Rosso Alpi marble is used throughout the property, including the striking kitchen island and benchtops, dining buffet and floor-to-ceiling fireplace mantel. Its creamy white base and striking rust-red vein elegantly enhances the rich timber cabinetry used in the kitchen, as well as the home’s timber floorboards.

Cleverly curved accents are featured throughout the renovation too. The subtle rounded edge of the floating dining buffet echoes the stunning custom kitchen table attached to the island bench. The juxtaposed curves, angles and textures are captivating and elegant visual features.

The striking kitchen island bench houses an impressive Wolf cooktop. The kitchen also includes a Wolf built-in oven and steam oven. A Franke double bowl sink looks out to the property’s manicured grounds and includes another elegant curve by way of the Zip HydroTap.

Warm, inviting, elegant and timeless, the kitchen’s old-world charm doesn’t compromise on all the mod-con luxuries expected of a blue ribbon property. The kitchen includes an impressive, curved Qasair rangehood, Sub-Zero column fridge, freezer and under-counter wine storage, and a Miele integrated dishwasher.

Ideal for entertaining, the butler’s pantry is just as elegant as the rest of the home – streamlined and calming with muted blue cabinetry and clean lines. The well-equipped butler’s pantry includes a Robam cooktop and range hood, a Siemens fridge/freezer, Abey double bowl sink and a Gessi sink mixer.

This bespoke project perfectly marries the historical and the modern, forming a kitchen ideal for today’s needs.
