The modern kitchen contains old heart pine cabinetry and granite countertops, while its service wing contains a large butler’s pantry with vault, two warming ovens, sink, dishwasher, and extensive storage space. The food pantry allows space for bulk purchasing, together with side-by-side Sub-Zero refrigerator and freezer.
