55 Step into the kitchen and there to meet you is the star of the space—a granite-topped prep island that measures 9ft by 3ft! Large enough to dance on.

A favorite spot for the family is the butler's pantry where everyone wants to hang out. "You can see where the floor is worn from the traffic here—close to the food and wet bar," said Elise. We have parties here and with all the room to choose from, this is where [everyone] congregates," she added laughing.
