Stephanie & Clay Spencer
1225 First St.

Stephanie and Clay Spencer’s stunning kitchen exudes a sense of sophisticated Old World charm, but most important, this cherished home that has been in the family for many years has played host to special memories, including Stephanie and Clay’s wedding reception.

This 450-square-foot kitchen is the epitome of warmth and style. The beautiful Olde English porcelain tiles supplied by Stafford Tile & Stone offer a rich and colorful base for the rest of the room’s design elements. The handmade ceramic backsplash in a bone colorway is also by Stafford Tile.

The Old Manor House cabinets are in the shade Churchill Wheat and are high-quality wood with thick 1-inch stock, inset doors and mortised hinges, supplied by Lagarde’s Kitchen and Bath Design. The cream of the cabinets and backsplash contrasts strikingly with the deep richness of the soapstone countertops.

The Spencers’ kitchen is fully equipped with two Sub-Zero refrigerators, including a 48-inch model with a glass door and an ice-maker; a Miele dishwasher; and a bar area.

Top design features include two 19th-century chandeliers and a La Cornue oven and hood retrofitted into the home’s original coal-burning fireplace.
