An outdated kitchen received a total revamp that included a spacious multilevel island for cleanup, prep and socializing. An outside wall was removed to add a new light-filled breakfast room/home office combination. When the woman of the house changes from busy real estate agent to gracious hostess she merely closes the pocket doors on her home office. An elongated pyramid skylight and sliding french doors fill the space with light. Pass-through cabinetry between the kitchen and breakfast room maintain openness between the spaces while providing room for wine storage and bar ware.
