A tight kitchen, weary and stretched by a growing family is given new life as a spacious showplace that flows freely into family spaces for dining and living. Cabinets, in mixed woods with classic detailing that add both color and texture are topped by striking granite countertops over a rich walnut plank floor. Large windows accentuate the raised ceiling filling the spaces with light while framing the views of the sweeping deck and rear yard. The mudroom/Laundry is expanded with cubbies for schoolbooks or hockey gear while a message center keeps track of schedules and activities.
