While emphasis has been placed on the use of space and views on the core level, it must also be stated that the kitchen has been carefully thought-out and is an engineering-inspired construction. Bulthaup™ cabinetry finished with Natural Oak wood has been accented by Statuary White marble countertops providing an innate elegance. There are stainless steel Miele™ appliances with gas cooking, Sub Zero™ refrigerator/freezer and a separate wine cooler. A large island bar in a Natural Oak is the perfect balance between functionality and style. This immense storage space beneath the bar is perfect for table settings and decorative objects but also assists with culinary preparation associated with entertaining.
