“This no-nonsense working kitchen is built entirely in stainless steel, right down to the cabinet carcasses and open shelving. Appliances are all in the same metal finish,” Murray says. The large walk-in pantry is around the corner. This also has open shelving so everything can be accessed quickly and easily. The pantry benchtops are in the same black stone as those in the entertainer’s kitchen, and cabinet fronts are similar. While the pantry is open to the chef’s kitchen, it can be screened off from the laundry at the rear of the hub by another pocket door. The other side of the working kitchen has a serving window that opens onto the outdoor kitchen just beyond. Window sills on the original part of the home are in local bluestone, which was also used to clad the open-air kitchen. The layered bluestone forms, introduced by Murray in varying sizes for variety, are also a subtle nod to the home’s classic brick facade. resource list | images | video Top: A deck at the rear leads to a series of steps that climb down the sloping site.
