This gourmet kitchen was
designed by Dr. and Mrs. Danielson in every detail. The cabinets fashioned
from select ash were also designed by them and feature many hidden options.
The overhead cabinet water glass was salvaged from the “Pete Fountain House”
renovation. Blue pearl granite was hand picked to form the counter tops.
Beveled elliptical windows were installed along with large, double hung
windows to make the kitchen, with its state of the art appliances, bright
and workable. This kitchen is very large and has an extended breakfast
eating area with a view of the Gulf of Mexico and the east garden area. The
doors on the south open to the continuation of the porch to the front making
for continued flow from the front of the home to the kitchen.
There are many areas of
flow in this home making it ideal for entertaining.
Leaving the kitchen, one
comes to an area which was originally a back porch. From this area, one can
go down a curving staircase to the west end of the Great Room or can go
straight into half bath with arches and a pedestal sink, and it services
this end of the home.
Continuing on from this
area are the butler’s pantry and the wet bar. In the Butler’s pantry, the
cabinets have water glass doors that are original. All of the existing
windows in the home have water glass. These are very unique windows in are
all original water glass windows. It is a miracle that the vandalism
occurring on this property did not include windows which were left intact.
