This close-knit family of six regularly hosts large gatherings. Their spacious one-acre Bloomfield Hills residence offered room for expansion, resulting in an extensive interior remodel and multiple additions, to include a luxurious first-floor Primary Suite, expanded family and dining areas, captivating outdoor spaces, and an open kitchen transformation.
To enhance the visual connection between the main portion of the first floor and the enchanting rear yard view, we relocated the kitchen into a brand-new addition. It was seamlessly opened into an expanded dining room and a generously sized family room, perfectly suited for our client’s large gatherings.
The new kitchen showcases exquisite custom cabinetry from Plain and Fancy, featuring a soft white painted perimeter and a cherry island that comfortably seats six. With dual sinks—one nestled beneath a window and the other discreetly placed in the island, just behind the 48” Wolf range—this kitchen facilitates multiple chefs and efficient cleanup, made even easier with the inclusion of two dishwashers, ideal for hosting large parties. A third steam oven quickly became a culinary essential for everyday family meals. A stone’s throw away, the Subzero refrigerator and freezer towers stand ready to accommodate the needs of a sizable crowd.
Complementing the kitchen island, a custom cherry bar complete with refrigeration, an ice maker, and a petite bar sink becomes the go-to spot for crafting cocktails. Given the open kitchen layout, the new walk-in pantry offers extensive storage, space for small tasks, and even a convenient coffee bar—a delightful spot for preparing school lunches. To maintain a harmonious aesthetic, the entire pantry can be discreetly closed off with custom barn doors that beautifully complement the kitchen cabinetry.
