Bold features create a dramatic elegance in this Gothic revival.

Ornate, elegant details contrast with contemporary flair for a space that is boldly unique. The cabinetry, walls and paneling are painted in subtle historical colours to set a soft backdrop, in keeping with the rest of the main floor. The two farmhouse-style sinks are carved out of a single basalt boulder and blend seamlessly with the granite countertops. Limestone slab floors are flamed, brushed and set in a cobble pattern to create an old-world ambience; while above, the ceiling beams hide mechanical systems. All the energy-efficient appliances needed in a modern kitchen are here, yet discreetly hidden within the cabinetry. Period light fixtures also carry the design features used throughout the home into this working kitchen and informal eating area.
