Eric Roth

Eric Roth “We really wanted to create an old kitchen feel in the renovation of that space,” says Fletcher. This means modern appliances are out of sight. The maple top central island, which resembles a piece of furniture, conceals the oven, stove top, and refrigerator—a large freezer is in the basement for extra storage. A soapstone sink and counter complete the work triangle. Bankert took down the kitchen’s wall to expose original structural beams. He also replaced the floors and added box molding wainscoting to the space. Today, the kitchen opens to an intimate dining area. “I found a set of eight 1810 dining chairs, but could not find an antique table,” says Fletcher. “We ended up getting a solid cherry wood table from Crate and Barrel—it works beautifully.” A wall of cabinetry, which is in keeping with the home’s aesthetic, stores dishes and glassware.
