Pocono Manor Kitchen

Remodeling of Kitchen over $30,000

The owners of this 1906 historic Pocono Manor cottage wanted a new state of the art gourmet kitchen that would be beautifully grand in styling, modern in design, perfect for entertaining and still comfortable enough for sipping morning coffee.

The key to this kitchen remodel was creating a space that was true to the original design of the home, yet could capture all the elements the owners desired within the space. This required a small 8ft x 14ft addition and full opening of an exterior wall to create one seamless space. The focal point is the vaulted glass on the gable end of the room with an 18 inch deep sill and casing of quarter sawn white oak.

This spectacular kitchen is all about the details from the custom cabinets and hand cut glass tile to the specially milled quarter sawn white oak trim. The Plain & Fancy cabinetry is painted cherry, distressed to expose natural wood highlights. Each cabinet includes LED lights inside, which turn on when you open the door, or as accents. The floor is quarter sawn white oak with a low voltage floor warming system beneath. The farmer sink is milled from a solid block of soap stone and oiled to create an aged appearance. The specialty lighting is a combination of recessed LED and antique hanging fixtures controlled by Lutron smart dimmers. The wall paint was even custom matched to coordinate with the glass tile and cabinet interiors. The kitchen also includes Thermador appliances and a new HVAC system.

The exterior was carefully blended into the existing home by matching all of the exterior details including, exposed rafter tail soffits, cedar shingle siding, real local stone veneer and custom milled trim.
