This 1952 ranch on Ithaca’s West Hill featured a small galley kitchen, isolated from the rest of the living area. The house also had two front doors, often confusing visitors about which door to use. Our solution involved converting the less desirable door to a tall window and opening up the kitchen to the living area. Cherry cabinets with Chestnut finish from Fieldstone, LED recessed lighting, local slab maple/cherry sideboard, granite counters, tumbled travertine backsplash and bamboo flooring. Slide-in electric range. In-line kitchen exhaust ventilation. Original refrigerator.
