Patience pays off for a family living

in The Reserve of Tartan Fields

BY KAREN BRADNER | Photos by Daniel Feldkamp

2

The fact that it took nearly six years for one Dublin couple to decide on what

would be their dream home, is a pretty good indication that the pair had a

pretty specific wishlist. F When Sankar and Jyothsna Mangapuram were

searching for a new home, a Dublin location was their number one priority.

The couple was living in the Shannon Glen subdivision, their children were

happily enrolled in the Dublin school system and they wanted to keep it that

way. Plus, Sankar’s business is based in Dublin and he is heavily involved in

the community. F They wanted a contemporary style home with “great

big rooms,” and an open layout as the couple entertains frequently for family,

friends and business associates. F “We host gatherings at least once a

month,” Jyothsna says. “It’s usually 15-20 guests.” ➻

housetrends greater columbus 23

Finding the right fit

“We’ve been looking since 2007 and during that time we looked at every

house available in Tartan Fields,” says Sankar. While they loved the community,

the traditional and transitional styles of the homes they were

touring were not quite what they wanted.

Finally, six years into their exhaustive search, they came upon an available

lot in The Reserve of Tartan Fields that overlooked the 12 th hole of

the golf course. The picturesque, north facing location was the impetus the

couple needed to decide to build and get exactly what they wanted.

Building on that particular lot meant building with developer Brian

Jimenez of Jimenez-Haid Builders. Initially, Sankar and Jyothsna were

hesitant to commit to the lot and the builder all at once, but having built

their previous home, they knew the questions to ask.

“I did the market research on him,” says Sankar. “I called all of his former

customers. They all are very happy. No one reported a bad experience. The

Jimenez-Haid brand is strong.” ➻

1 This grand great room, with its tall ceilings and curved wall of windows, was

top on the homeowners’ wish list. 2 The couple wanted a contemporary style

home and had concrete thoughts on how most everything—even the roof—

should appear. 3 The dramatic front door was custom made to fit the home’s

generous dimensions. 4 A colorful view of the great room can be enjoyed from

the upper level landing.

Having been born and raised in India, they preferred the

home follow the principles of Vastu shastra, a traditional Indian

system which translates literally to “science of architecture.”

Building the team

Jimenez introduced the Mangapurams

to Jim Wright of Residential Designed

Solutions. When meeting with Wright,

the couple came loaded with photos and

detailed design ideas. Jyothsna spent hundreds

of hours scouring the internet and

gathering photos of exactly how she wanted

her floors, ceilings, decking, stairs—and

even the roof—to appear.

“They did a great job of bringing the big

picture ideas to us,” says Jimenez. “It was

fun for my team to tackle the details in

order to turn these specific concepts into

reality.”

One priority was a two-story ceiling and

a curved window in the great room. “We

wanted something modern and elegant,”

Sankar says. “Not just straight lines.”

In fact curved lines are carried throughout

the home including the striking entry

with its curved walls and circular overlook

which features a seven-foot tall chandelier

dripping down from the second-floor ceiling.

Dual exterior curved staircases descend

6

from the first floor to the spacious, golfcourse

facing outdoor entertaining area.

Plus, the couple was very specific with

how the rooms were to be arranged. Having

been born and raised in India, they preferred

the home follow the principles of

Vastu shastra, a traditional Indian system

which translates literally to “science of

architecture.”

“In ancient days, kingdoms were built

using this method,” Jyothsna says. “Rooms

were placed for optimum ventilation.”

For example, the kitchen should be in the

southeast corner of the home, the bedroom

in the southwest section. ➻

5 The kitchen features both an induction

and gas cooktop. Jyothsna prefers the first for

its speed and the second for its adjustability.

6 A swing bed is the perfect place to spend

some quiet time in the sunroom. 7 Curved

lines are prominent from the front entrance

through to the back patio.

7

housetrends greater columbus 27


Getting underway

Those requests and designs were given to Wright who

drew them to his clients’ very close specifications. Plans

for a 10,000-square foot, six bedroom, six bathroom

and two half-bath home were drawn up to elegantly

accommodate the couple’s three children. Daughters

16-year-old Sanjana and 12-year-old Sahasra and fiveyear-old

son Siddaarth. Jyothsna’s mother, Uma, alternates

between living in this home and with her son who

also lives in the area.

After blueprints were drawn, the couple enlisted the

aid of interior designer Pam Yost, owner of Grand Design

Group. Yost was instrumental when Jyothsna decided

she wanted to redesign the kitchen from what was originally

drawn and she wanted something much bigger. “In

Indian culture, we cook a lot,” she says. “We cook a lot!”

she adds for emphasis.

Yost reworked the kitchen’s design and created the

free-form shape of the island and the matching dropped

ceiling that mimics its lines above it. “Pam made things

happen according to our tastes,” says Jyothsna.

“On a scale of one to 10, she gets a 10,” says Sankar.

The couple broke ground on the home in 2015, followed

by a two-year construction period which was overseen

by Jimenez-Haid’s project manager, Alice Wissman.

Splashes of color

In addition to the curves, bold colors are a theme that

is carried throughout the home. The overall plan was to

keep permanent fixtures such as flooring, cabinetry, and

walls in neutral ranges, and add splashes of color through

items that could be more easily switched up. Yost helped

the couple with color, material and lighting selections.

“We both love bright colors, but we wanted the flexibility

to be able to change,” says Jyothsna.

A colorful lower level bar and conversation area is

a favorite spot for Sankar to hang out with friends.

Jyothsna thinks the hues brighten the moods of her family

and their guests in the winter. ➻

8

8 The lower level has lots of colors. “We wanted to create

more of a party area,” Jyothsna says.

housetrends greater columbus 29


Keeping with traditions

The couple, who just celebrated their 20 th

wedding anniversary, is very involved in

the Indian community that is strong in

Dublin. Along with traditional U.S. holidays,

they celebrate their culture’s festivals

regularly, including Diwali, a festival

of lights that takes place each autumn.

“We don’t want our kids to lose their

Indian culture,” Sankar says

While the family is an active one—

both daughters are on their school’s tennis

teams and take classical dance lessons,

and their son Siddaarth is an active

pre-schooler who “won’t walk when he

can run”—the couple admits they prefer

to spend time in their home over going

out.

“When I wake up in the morning I love

looking out my window to see the green,

open view in my back yard,” Sankar says.

He adds that he comes home from work

every weekday by six o’clock because, he

says, “My house is my heaven.”

What more could anyone wish for?

“We love the convenience and the

ease of our floor plan plus the openness

of all the light in our Bob Webb

home. When we were driving through

the community before we decided

to build, some of the residents welcomed

us into their homes so that

we could see them. That friendly

environment continued during the

building process so that when we

moved in, we already knew many

neighbors. We like the fact that it’s a

small community, comprised of people

who might be of similar age and

interests. We also like the fact that it’s

a community of somewhat similar

freestanding homes, with each home

having its own distinctive features

and character. We want friends and

family to feel the openness, warmth

and simplicity of our new home. We

want them to feel how simplified and

easy it is to live here.

We enjoyed the opportunity to work

with the architect who had designed

our previous home. We liked having

the ability to pick characteristics from

other homes and models we had seen

to create our own unique design.

Andrea, our sales representative,

was very professional, welcoming,

communicative and helpful. As we

moved through the process of planning

and designing, she was very

responsive and patient with us! Jessica,

our designer, was professional

and fun to work with. Her ideas and

suggestions have proven to be perfect

for our home. When we had a few

“bumps in the road,” she was right

there to guide us. We had the benefit

of working with a group of professionals

who have many years of experience

in building quality homes,

and helping us tweak the original

plan to fit our needs." – The Kings

The focus is on function in this style

which has roots in Northern Europe

BY KATELIN MYERS

Declutter that space and bring minimalizing to mind by incorporating Scandinavian style throughout your home.

Scandinavian interior design has been popular across Europe for years and has recently resurfaced in the states.

Focusing on simplicity and functionality, Scandinavian design emphasizes natural elements, neutral colors, minimalist

furniture and impactful lighting. Think light wood and cozy textiles mixed with your midcentury modern pieces

in pale, neutral shades to enhance the natural light the Nordic regions desire. Considering this contemporary

European style for your space? Sneak a peek at these Scandinavian pieces for your new design inspiration. ➻

space. Terho pendant available at materusa.com

The goal of Scandinavian design is

to use light, neutral colors

to maximize as much natural light as possible

—especially during the long winter months.

2 Need a cool statement piece? The curved wood of Armchair 400 packs a punch,

without being too over the top—a nice complement to any Scandinavian space.

3 Scandinavian interiors often show natural woods included in their furniture and

décor. What better way to involve natural wood, pattern play and midcentury

style than the Geome Sideboard, a piece that will make a statement in any space.

A SOPHISTICATED

HIDEAWAY IN

YELLOW SPRINGS

A composition of natural elements speak the language of healing

BY BETHANY REIFF | Photos by Dawn M. Smith

housetrends.com 43


2

Yellow Springs has a well-earned reputation for its unconventional

charm. But tucked into the woods just outside the village is a truly

unique gem for the area. F From the moment visitors cross the threshold

of this exquisite home, they know they are someplace special. The

homeowners set out to create a healing home, one that is filled with

daylight and built with natural elements. Nowhere is that vision more

evident than in the main living area, where a striking interplay of light

and space invites relaxation, contemplation and well-being.

Serene elegance

One of five “pavilions,” or sections, in the 8,000 square-foot house, the living

room, kitchen, dining room, and breakfast nook serve as a dramatic center to

this well-planned home designed by ALT Architecture. A curved ceiling soars

above the space, accented by exposed wood and steel I-beams. A wall of customdesigned

windows further opens the area up, showcasing the refined simplicity

of the interiors.

“We wanted a contemporary, elegant, industrial look, but we know those

elements have a tendency to be cold,” says the homeowner. “We were up to the

challenge of taking something large and making it warm.”

To offset the hard edges, the owners incorporated soft colors and textures

throughout the interior. Wood laminate and tile accents anchor the space. Rich

hues of cream and gray add warmth. Crushed velvet couches and dining room

chairs serve as a comfy invitation to lose yourself in the surroundings. Art pieces,

many purchased from nearby Yellow Springs, add pops of color. And after

the sun goes down, accent lighting, combined with the enclosed gas fireplace,

transform the living area into a truly sumptuous experience.

“This is the coziest place at night,” says the homeowner. “For as big as it is,

you get the fire going, turn on the lighting and the space just glows.”

Healing by nature

Natural healing is important to both homeowners, and landscape views and

natural light are key components to both physical and emotional health. But

the couple was also designing with Ohio’s winters in mind. This was especially

1 Reminiscent of a booth at a restaurant, the cozy breakfast nook overlooks the living

room and back yard beyond. 2 A linear gas fireplace adds warmth to the inviting living

room. 3 The back of the home features a wall of custom windows that allows the

homeowners to enjoy the privacy of the 11-acre wooded property.

important to the husband, who originally hails from Texas.

“If we are going to be housebound during winter, we wanted to be in a house with lots of light

that keeps us invigorated,” says the homeowner.

The generous use of glass captures the incredible views of the 11-acre wooded site, including

a 300-year-old sycamore tree that first attracted the owners to the property. The site’s many

heated water features offer both visual and auditory harmony year-round. And the home’s

southern exposure allows natural light to flood the space without the harsh glare of direct sun.

Healthy by design

To promote serenity of mind, the homeowners created a home free of visual clutter. But beneath

those clean lines and smooth surfaces are materials that are free of volatile organic chemicals

and other harmful products. The owners also used LED lighting throughout, both because it is

free of toxins and for the superior quality of light.

Even the water that feeds the radiant floor heating system is free of additives, like antifreeze.

All water used on site is pumped from a 179-year-old springhouse and treated using UV filters.

A battery of tankless water heaters ensures the owners always have water at just the right temperature.

In addition to being a healthy home, it is a smart house. Everything from the lighting to the

air to the heating system is programmable by zones to optimize comfort for all occupants.

Open invitation

Make no mistake, this is a home of tranquility. But it was also designed to be lived in. Flanked

by a guest suite on one side and the family’s five bedrooms on the other, the living area is the

heart of this home. The open floor plan is as much about letting nature in as it is promoting

interaction between family and friends.

Above the threshold leading into the family pavilion are the letters IWLYFATY, which

stand for “I will love you for a thousand years.” It is a reference to the Christina Perri song, “A

Thousand Years,” which was the owners’ wedding song. Indeed, this is a home to love for the

ages, one that speaks to devotion for nature, for family and for contentment and well-being.

This home, located at 3443 Grinnell Road, is currently listed for sale by Kunal Patel Group.

4 The kitchen is tucked into the front of the home, offering a lively view of the front yard out the large

windows behind the sink. 5 The back yard features plenty of outdoor living areas, as well as a refreshing

swimming pool.

Woods

Hilliard cottage is

custom comforts

BY SUSAN ZINGRAF

Photos by Daniel Feldkamp

When a space calls for warmth,

character, even comfort, the

go-to element is often wood.

Its versatility coupled with an

innate natural feel make wood

a timeless choice for surfaces

and decor. That’s what led

Hilliard homeowners Annie

and Matt Arthur to work with

Alex and Lindsay Remley,

owners of Edgework Creative,

a millwork and metal fabrication

shop specializing in furniture

located in Grandview,

to create custom woodwork

designs for their updated and

expanded 1940s “fishing cottage”

on the Scioto River. ➻

“This house lends itself to an earthy

feel and custom finishes,” explains

Annie. “It was a great opportunity to

use Edgework Creative.”

Appearing throughout the home in

various forms, custom wood pieces

illustrate the breadth of both Annie’s

imagination and the craftsmanship

of Edgework Creative. Lindsay says,

“Annie has great vision, she will have

something in her head, and our job is to

work with her to bring it to life. We’re

passionate about creating pieces using

quality materials that are designed to

tell a story.”

Rich and reclaimed

For instance, in the spacious

European-style kitchen where

the couple entertains family and

friends regularly, Annie wanted

a countertop with a less formal

and more natural look. Edgework

Creative crafted an island top

from reclaimed oak, with its rich

depth evoking a warm and inviting

feel into the heart of the

Arthurs’ home. Barstools from

Edgework Creative’s custom line

of furniture offer casual seating

and complete the look with

handcrafted black metal bases

and wood seats.

The kitchen’s cozy nook with

built-in seating and picturesque

views beckoned for a table with

an organic feel. Alex designed

the original piece with a smooth

reclaimed wood top, bullnose

edges and a black base with

similar lines as the barstools.

The custom table artfully ties

the nook with the kitchen while

offering a more intimate seating

area.

Other custom wood pieces created

extend the organic ambiance

of the home, including a

rustic mantel in the dining room

along with benches that mimic

the look of existing chairs. In the

entryway, an oversized mirror

with custom wood trim adds distinction

and dimension to this

high traffic walkway of the home.

Swing time

The front porch swing was a work in progress as Annie experimented to find the right thing for the space. “I tried chairs and

an iron bench, but nothing was doing it for me,” she remembers. “I wanted a swing, but needed something that would fill the

space.” Edgework Creative designed a front-facing daybed swing that hit the mark for an appealing visual feature and an inviting

place to land. “There’s always someone out there taking a nap,” Annie remarks.

Creating a home that expresses their sense of casual, comfortable family style is what the Arthurs enjoy doing, and adding

custom wood features has been a big part of that. Annie concludes, “I’ve never worked with designers before because the design

for me is the fun part. It’s my favorite kind of distraction from my busy life. But I can tell Edgework Creative what I want and

we work together to make it happen.” For more information visit edgeworkcreative.co

Dublin couple makes design decisions

based less on resale, more on lifestyle

1

BY STEPHANIE AURORA LEWIS | Photos by Daniel Feldkamp

Nestled along the historic High Street of quaint downtown Dublin, Mike and Janice’s

lovely home with its wrap around porch seems as though it is one of the few centuryold

homes on the street. “I am not sure why this home reminds us of New England,”

says Janice. “Yet this is why we love it so much.” Agreeably, there is an inviting warmth

about the home coupled with it being tucked partially out-of-site by a broad line of

mature trees that reminds visitors of Northeastern American scenes. F The foyer

is open and welcoming with large windows and a fanciful design of an eight-point

compass shaped out of multi-colored inlaid wood in the center of the space. Used as a

sitting room, the entryway captivates its visitors with a decorated sense of playfulness,

modern austerity, and comfort. In addition to carefully detailed wood trim throughout,

high ceilings and abundant sunlight provide a sense of freedom and happiness. ➻

Colorful lives

“The challenge was to create a finished product that was sensitive to the

age of the home while incorporating the colorful personalities of the

homeowners,” says Bryan Hamilton, owner of Hamilton Contractors, the

firm who worked with the couple on their recent home renovation, which

included a new front porch, a kitchen overhaul as well as refinished floors,

fresh paint inside and out, and new wallpaper.

“Mike and Janice are full of fun and life,” says Erin Bennett from

Hamilton’s team.

Janice explains that she and her husband have been on many adventures

together. A few years ago, Janice rode her bike across the United

States from California to Massachusetts in a mere 52 days. One cannot

help but think that the vibrant color choice for the kitchen cabinetry is a

reflection of their adventurous nature.

“I couldn’t stand the idea of renovating my kitchen in such a way

that it would be various shades of neutral,” says Janice. “I wanted to do

something different, something happy and bold. Why can’t we make bold

choices about our home and stop worrying about what colors and materials

would be good for resale?”

Much to be applauded, Janice’s thoughts about her home echo statements

made by architect and writer Sarah Susanka of the Small House

book series. Susanka is adamant that homeowners build, renovate, and

design their homes for the current family who lives there and for their

most present and immediate needs as homeowners. ➻

Before

Keep the faith

“After I chose a bold turquoise color in my kitchen, several

people were astonished and thought they would like to

change my mind,” says Janice. “But, I stuck to my guns. After

the cabinetry, countertops, and backsplash were installed,

they all became quite enthusiastic. Some even decided to

imitate my kitchen design in their own homes.”

No matter the aesthetic theme, good design is always

appreciated. Susanka seems to agree with Janice, as illustrated

in her quote, “Once you make the unequivocal internal

commitment to do something—when you know this is the

time and place to act—the world around you will shift in all

sorts of apparently miraculous ways to make it happen.”

Janice describes her kitchen almost as if she took a leap of

faith, “I was looking through all the examples of colors that

Daso Cabinetry could provide for me, and when I saw our

turquoise color, I just knew it was the perfect color for our

kitchen. I love it.”

“While we were making decisions about the renovation, we

would go for walks with her dogs, meet at our office, meet

in Janice’s home, and even occasionally go out for lunch to

discuss the project,” says Bennett.

“Janice and Mike were great customers to work for,” says

Hamilton. “Problems arise with every project—from discovering

issues inside walls to a delay of materials—and they

stood right beside us while trying to find a solution. When

we have customers like that it makes our job much easier and

enjoyable.”

It is evident that both Janice and the Hamilton crew were

a great team that relished the design-build experience from

start to finish. “I have not only thoroughly enjoyed working

with Janice on helping her redesign her home’s interior, but I

have also gained a friend,” says Bennett. ➻

Backyard bonus

The crowning touch to this New

England-style home is the diverting,

intricate train set upon which electronic

trains travel throughout the back

yard. Mike took on this hobby and

built every item in his spare time. The

bridges, in particular, seem to bear

thousands of small structural members.

This landscape is both entertaining

and relaxing with the interest of

the train tracks, the bubbling water,

tall trees, lovely flowerbeds, and two

boisterous dogs prancing about.

From High Street, one might not

have an idea about how full of energy

the house is from the entryway to the

fantastical back yard. Every which way

a visitor turns about the property, the

home speaks a story about this couple,

their love of adventure, and appreciation

for all the great things they

have in life. Janice says enthusiastically,

“I didn’t want to renovate my home

to mimic current trends. I wanted to

take a risk and create a home that is

immensely colorful and happy. I am so

pleased with the new renovation.”

Laundry room

makeover spins up

a fresh inviting space

BY LEE RHODES

Photos by Jamie Bratslavsky

housetrends greater columbus 67


The laundry room. It represents a chore

that many of us dread, but this doesn’t mean

it’s not worthy of design attention. Interior

designer Ricka Crozier of Dave Fox Design-

Build Remodelers thinks the aversion we feel

toward laundry day is all the more reason

to spruce up this space. In fact, her firm

is seeing an uptick in laundry room design

projects. F “It’s a room that has not always

been very pleasant, but it’s one that most of

us use every day,” she explains. “That’s why

it’s important to be functional but also bright

and cheerful.”

A smart room

For one of Crozier’s recent projects, the homeowner

wanted what so many of us do: plenty of

accessible storage. Smart storage areas are essential

to keeping a laundry room clutter-free and

giving every item its proper place. This laundry

room contained a partition wall that obscured a

series of cabinets filled with an array of clutter.

Crozier removed the partition and incorporated

taller custom cabinets with rollout trays, one long

enough to hold rolls of wrapping paper. This new

Omega cabinetry also houses a beverage cooler,

so “the homeowner can have a nice glass of wine

in there while she does the laundry,” says Crozier.

The relaxing aura in this room is further

enhanced by the color scheme. The cabinetry’s

blue-gray hue is Rain, a color that is mimicked in

the window treatments, by Home Source Interiors,

which soften the room and offer a little bit of

privacy.

2

The striking tile lining one wall is from Hamilton

Parker and is part of Sant’Agostino’s Patchwork

collection. “It’s classic looking, so she won’t ever

get tired of it,” says Crozier. The light fixture

makes a similar striking statement—and complements

the black accents of the faucet and cabinet

hardware—but doesn’t take away from the open

and airy feel of the room. ➻

1 Plenty of lighting via the window, orbit-style pendant

and under-shelving mounts, makes the task at hand

easier. 2 Black accents are subtly sprinkled throughout

the space—including the faucet, hardware and tile.

housetrends greater columbus 69

Starting at the sink

Regarding the faucet, one of the homeowner’s must-haves

was the Kohler farm sink. The sink served as inspiration for

the reclaimed wood shelves; these floating shelves provide

more storage, and their undermount recessed lighting adds

soft illumination.

Beadboard behind the washer-dryer, with a rod across the

top for hanging shirts, adds aesthetic value as well as functionality.

The countertop is a resilient quartz, both visually

pleasing and stain-resistant. And the flooring is LVT luxury

vinyl flooring, which is both water and stain-resistant with a

cork backing so that it’s soft to walk on.

“The end result makes me smile,

and the homeowner loves it,” concludes

Crozier.

Indeed, the finished product is a

compilation of the many trends favored

in laundry rooms today, including eyecatching

designs in a space that no

longer inspires dread.

4

3 The farmhouse sink inspired much of

the room’s design. 4 Removing a wall that

divided two sections of the laundry room

brought in more light and made the two

areas connect functionally.

Family decides to stay put and grow

in their beloved neighborhood

BY JARON M. TERRY, APR | Photos by Daniel Feldkamp

Scott and Amy Rahl love the neighborhood where they’ve raised their three children,

but they had become tired of dealing with a cramped kitchen where clutter appeared

to multiply on its own. F “We love to host family gatherings,” says Scott, who is a

stay-at-home dad and the family’s main chef. “When we have all five of us, both sets

of grandparents, and other extended family members all at once, we’re unable to have

everyone at the same table and that’s not what we wanted.” ➻

housetrends greater columbus 83

The couple did not want to leave

their home of 17 years because they

loved its perfect location in Ashmoore,

near Meadow View Park, where the

family can walk for ice cream and every

street is filled with friends who are also

frequent guests. The solution was to

add just over 200 square feet to create a

nearly 300-square-foot gathering space

that includes a gourmet kitchen, large

L-shaped island with seating, and dining

area all in one open-concept space.

The expansion project also included

enlarging the existing laundry room,

and creating a new pantry and mudroom.

Passing the test

“Our oldest daughter’s high school

graduation was the inaugural event,

and with more than 30 people in the

kitchen we had more than enough

room for everyone,” Scott recalls. “The

new island is perfect--we had a taco bar

on both sides and people could circulate

easily.”

Open sightlines from the six-burner

range to the three-panel sliding patio

door ensure that no one feels boxed in.

Natural light, seemingly spilling from

every direction, highlights the warmth

of the hardwood flooring. Laura

Watson, ASID UDCP, interior designer

with The Cleary Company, the design/

build firm that completed the Rahls’

project, explains that the family’s desire

for ample light drove the design, resulting

in an elegant, sophisticated, but

family-friendly space.

“With all new windows throughout the area, we had the

opportunity to be creative. In addition to transom windows,

we installed a deep window box behind the sink and eliminated

the under-window backsplash, so the entire area is flooded

with light,” she notes.

The family was very involved with every step of the design,

Watson says, especially the oldest daughter, whose keen

interest was helpful throughout the design process.

Creative solution

By using a custom cabinetmaker, Watson was able to accommodate

a support column post, concealing it as part of an

additional storage area with see-through cabinets that serve

both the main kitchen and a convenient beverage center in

the dining area. The additional countertop expanse is perfect

for serving platters that can be passed through to the table.

“We all love this gathering space and my wife and I are so

happy that we were able to stay in the home we love,” Scott

says. “I especially enjoy being able to watch sports while

preparing meals and having fun with all the new gadgets,

including a steam oven, convection broiler, and space for

warming,” he adds.

“It seems no matter what time of day or whether we’re

hosting a huge celebration or just having breakfast, everything

is always so clean and open--just what our family

needs,” Scott says.
