This French provincial-style kitchen was created with entertaining in mind, so it was designed and built accordingly. Storage space, prep space and the appliances have all been included on a grander-than-usual scale to cater for a small or large number of guests, without detracting from the kitchen’s visual appeal.

The kitchen area is highlighted by a magnificent three-metre custom-built canopy hood, set off by a traditional mantelpiece and two large carved corbels. This cooking area also features a pull-out tap plumbed into the wall behind the stove to save carrying large pots to and from the sink to be filled.

To the left of the stove is a preparation area with a sink and garbage disposal unit and to the right another work area has scales built into the benchtop, an integrated food processor and a Zip hot and cold filtered water system.

At the centre of the kitchen is a vast island bench with decorative corner onlays and a distinctively shaped marbletop. The island contains a Shaw porcelain butler’s sink, dishwasher, garbage disposal, recycling bins and an abundance of handy storage space. Throughout the kitchen there are pilasters with decorative onlays and even the kitchen window frames feature similar onlay details to follow through with the French provincial theme.

The hallway of the home also features a gallery where drinks can be poured for guests as they arrive, and a hatch that allows direct access to the kitchen for the serving of food across to the adjacent formal dining room. Let the party begin!
