Living Room

The living room makes up about half of the greatroom. There are decks off both sets of french doors, a little one overlooking the private garden and the greenhouse, and the large one over the poolhouse that leads to the rooftop deck.

The flooring in the living room is the same Quarter Sawn, clear, 5 inch Brazillian Cherry. There are floor to ceiling windoes from which you can see Apponagansett Bay and at night, the twinkling lights of Padanaram.

The pub in the living room is a replica of a British Pub that’s all hand carved Mahogany. A fridge with ice maker and a dishwasher for large glasses were set into the pub.Behind the pub is a small room where we store things and it’s also home to an eletrical sub-panel and the dimmers to control most of the second and third floors.

There is a “retro” fan hanging from the steel beam that is driven by a belt it’s computer controlled. There are two Fujitsu mini-split air conditioners (the biggest ones they make) and the radiant heating makes the floor nice to walk on without shoes.

The fireplace starts about four feet below the ground and goes all the way to about 6 feet above the roof deck. The firebrick is arranged in a herringbone pattern, there is an ash dump in the middle of the grate. The opening is 5′ 6″ high and is flanked by two granite postbox posts. The hearths are unpolished black granite and weigh about 2,000 pounds each.

There are little “nooks” in the fireplace for art or whatever. Even though it looks simple, this is a high tech fireplace. There is a lot of steel inside to hold up the giant steel beams that the engineer forced on the building, there is Ethernet, cable and eletrical in there too to supply the roof deck.

Dining Room

This is basically the other half of the greatroom, it’s set up as a dining room but you could basically use it for anythinh from an additional living room to a dance floor.The dining room has a mystery exit that leads to the powder room and the game room, and there are built in shelves and cupboards at the side of the room.There is another “retro” belt driven fan hanging from the steel beam. The lighting throws pools of light on the dining table and the big lights which are hidden behind valances softly illuminate the rafters.

Breakfast Nook

he breakfast nook is a bright circular room that sits between the kitchen and the deck. A french door leads to the deck and an open doorway leads to the kitchen.

Kitchen

The kitchen is huge. The island is about 12 feet long and four feet wide to put it in context.

  • LG French Door Fridge
  • Thermidor 6 Burner Gas Oven
  • GE Monogram Trash Compactor
  • Warming Drawer
  • Advantium 240v Oven/Microwave
  • Dish Washer
  • Amish Cabinetry
  • Soft close drawers
  • Concealed hardware
  • Concrete countertops with built in draining board
  • “Pop-Up” eletrical outlets set into concrete
  • Copper main and prep sinks
  • Dual garbage disposals.

Butlers Pantry

The circular butlers pantry holds new Amish “distressed” cabinetry. The old farmers used to keep their ratty furniture out of sight, so this look is designed to replicate that “look and feel”.

The curved concrete countertop and seat were made by Justin from Livingstone Studio in Rhode Island – http://www.livingstonestudios.com/ . The cabinets have wide shelves in the doors, new “old” glass above the coffee station and soft close drawers without exposed hardware.

Playroom

Three rooms really comprise this set of rooms. The Powder room, the storage room and the playroom.

The Powder Room has traditional wainscoting. The upper walls and ceiling are all American Clay. There is a pedistal sink, a Toto “comfort” toilet and a Toto Urinal with automatic flush.The floor is tile and there is a casement window that you can leave open even if it’s raining.The storage room is a place for a second fridge, it contains an eletric sub-panel and, in a cubby hole built into the wall sits the computer that runs the house.Between the storage room and pantry is the space where the elevator will go.

The gameroom itself is set up for watching a BIG television and has a built in kitchen with granite countertops, fridge and Amish cabinets. The built in bookcase is the secret entrance to Toblerone Alley.

Toblerone Alley

There is a secret door in the game room that leads to the space over the garage. It’s called Toblerone Alley because the framing inside make it look and feel as though you are inside a Toblerone chocolate bar.

The center corrider has had a floor installed and is currently used for storage, although a single lane bowling alley would fit quite nicely in the space.
