Old world charm meets modern art allure at the kitchen of this 19th
century Chestnut Hill mansion.
WJD Contracting had a wonderful opportunity to recreate a kitchen that
speaks to the soul of the house while showcasing the artful taste of the
homeowner and releasing it from the its dreadful 1970 incarnation. Plaster
was removed from the wall between the kitchen and the mud room to expose
the old stone wall. WJD's design also uncovered the 2nd entrance that was
blocked off in the previous remodel and turned the mud room into a game
room/lounge that sports a wet bar, a powder room, and works as a natural
extension from the kitchen for entertaining.
In the process of demolition, a small opening in the floor to the old coal
chute was uncovered. WJD's ingenious design turned this new discovery into
a unique wine cellar.
