The high level of craftsmanship found throughout the house continues in the kitchen. In this relatively large space, the challenge was to create a practical layout with a feeling of warmth and comfort, says builder Allan Wallace.

To meet the brief, Fyfe Kitchens set about crafting cabinetry that would suit the home's traditional look and feel. Chosen for its rich colour and texture, American cherry cabinetry in a square frame covers much of the wall space. Veneer centre panels on each of the doors and drawers add visual interest. The cabinetry is topped with Giallo Vitorio granite, which has a speckled black-and-white pattern that contrasts the timber tones. Antique bronze finished handles complete the look.

To maintain the kitchen's traditional lines, cabinetry was used to conceal various appliances. The rangehood is tucked away in a custom-built cabinet made of American cherry and featuring tongue-and-groove detailing. Integrated wood panels keep the fridge and freezer out of sight.

A large-walk in pantry, complete with laminated benchtop and a single stainless steel sink, can be used for food preparation. Convenient storage accessories include wicker baskets on slide-out rails.
