Deeds & Don'ts: Romantic Winterludes

Deeds & Don'ts: Romantic Winterludes

February is the month when we celebrate the great indoors. With the weather outside still frightful—some combination of snowy, sleety, gray and cold—few can resist the urge to nest for the next few weeks. So this column is dedicated to places and spaces for just that, whether the nesting’s done at the hearth, in a cozy kitchen or romantic master suite, or all around a home built to accommodate house parties and weekend guests.

Deeds & Don'ts: Homes with Grand Kitchens

Deeds & Don'ts: Homes with Grand Kitchens

Realtors report that the heart of the home has to function as just that: a space to gather for family meals (sorry, dining room), entertain, do homework, watch movies, hang out and, oh yes, prepare food. The most common complaint about the kitchens in older homes is that they were designed as remote rooms for cooks and servants—a la Downton Abbey—with no connection to where family life is lived. So topping the “ideal kitchen” list is an easy flow into a family or great room, a formal dining room, preferably with a butler’s pantry, and doors that open onto a terrace for al fresco dining.

Deeds & Don'ts: Rennovated Properties

No matter their style, good architects design for the lives that are to be lived in the space. Put another way, a home is well designed only if it suits the lives of its owners—not the other way around. In keeping with the theme of this issue, here are places and spaces that have been beautifully designed or renovated by talented architects, designers or builders. But don’t take our word for it: With the fall real estate market underway, October is a great time to take advantage of weekends packed with open houses.

MADISON –It’s worth the trip up the Connecticut coast to check out this circa-1920s Madison home with a new—and extremely elegant—kitchen. Luxe details start with the counters and island, topped with two-inch-thick statuary marble (translation: good enough to carve a replica of Michelangelo’s David, if you have a hankering for one of those). The all-white space, from the beamed ceilings to the gleaming cabinetry, is offset by glossy ebony floors and window frames. The kitchen flows into an open-plan dining area and living room with a pretty, paneled hearth. And if we had you at “statuary marble,” you’ll want to check out the walk-in marble shower off the master suite, which also offers a pretty slipper tub. The 8,000-square-foot home has four additional bedrooms, a billiard room and a home theater room with a stone fireplace. Lorey and Meig Walz with the Coldwell Banker office in Madison share the $4,999,000 listing.
