Gables Estate Residence
Building Area: 1,735 SF
Building Status: Completed
This private residence for an inventor and engineer couple with a love of design began as an interior remodeling of the kitchen and great room. It grew over time to include the children’s bathrooms. The custom kitchen was designed by Touzet Studio and built by Frohbose & Beers. It features an 8-foot-long, custom designed island with an absolute granite velvet finish top.
The appliances are tucked out of sight in a custom “appliance garage” clad in a walnut volume that also conceals the refrigerators. The ovens were set in a coral rock wall with a custom-designed bronze hood.
The design was inspired by the kitchens of early French chateaus, with their oversized fireplaces for cooking. The powder room, inspired by vintage train compartments, was tucked into the walnut volume that defines the great room.
