The kitchen and staff room were opened to create an amazing open chef's eat in kitchen with white custom shaker cabinets with glass panes and ice box handles, endless counter and cabinet space, a 6 burner vented Viking stove, double sink and large eating area. The kitchen has 2 large windows facing South with side Riverside Park views affording it light at all times of day. There is also a large pantry closet with wine refrigerator, a home office and a lovely powder room in the kitchen wing.
Off the kitchen is the former formal dining room, now used as a fabulous large square den facing South with Park views. The original paneling has been pickled to a soft grey color and original beams are painted a creamy white, creating a wonderful modern, yet classic decor.
The living room and library have been combined to create a double grand living room with decorative fireplace and big windows facing South with side Park and seasonal river views.
