Historic Long Island Kitchen on an Oyster Bay, NY Estate
This beautiful Long Island kitchen in Oyster Bay, NY, was part of a historic renovation of a property that preserves the original the Walt Whitman school house. The challenge was to merge the latest in kitchen technology while maintaining the warmth and traditional elegance of this 1935 federal style brick manor house. The estate’s home was designed by the architects Kimball & Husted. The goal on this project was to create a warm, functional kitchen for a large family who loves to entertain. The design includes expansive glass windows that make the most of the kitchen’s breathtaking view of Oyster Bay Cove. A unique feature of this door style is that Ken Kelly added a center rail to the tall 48” tall upper wall cabinets to give the the extra height softness and elegance. The kitchen’s center island has a 2 ¼” thick solid mahogany countertop, and the counters are granite. Included in this kitchen are two stainless steel under-mount sinks, a farm sink, and three dishwashers. The enormous amount of countertop space gives the family plenty of working room for both family functions and large-scale entertaining with an attached butler’s kitchen and pantry. In addition to the standard 36” Sub-Zero refrigerator, the butler’s pantry features an overflow Sub-Zero refrigerator and separate Sub-Zero freezer as well as an additional wall oven, microwave, and warming drawer.

Cabinetry Used: Wood-Mode Galleria door style with recessed panels and furniture-grade finish. The color along the perimeter is “Antique White,” and the center island is in a custom “Green Moss” finish.
