Te Heat-N-Glo fireplace provides a focal point for the principal living area space. At one end of the L, an elongated Heat-N-Glo fireplace is illuminated within by L.E.D.s, while the fireplace surround is fashioned from thousands of individual one-inch recycled glass tiles finished with an iridescent coating. Tese took a month to locate: their acquisition epitomizes the incredible attention to detail which has gone into every aspect of this building. Above the mantle, discreetly out of view, hides a flat screen TV, which lowers into place when needed. A projector is housed in what can only be described as a lighthouse-like structure, cunningly evocative of the life aquatic. Beneath the apex of the L, a well-stocked bar area, with maple cabinetry, takes care of liquid needs, while an open galley-style kitchen, with six-burner Wolf stove and a vast honed marble countertop takes care of the solids. A highly detailed yet durable honeycomb backsplash completes the work surface, while the oversized Kraus sink and the goose-neck Grohe faucet transform the chore of clean-up into a pleasure. Should large numbers require feeding, there is also a catering kitchen, beautifully detailed with three-quarter inch granite countertops and beaded inset cabinetry; "downstairs" at Downton Abbey would surely have been overjoyed to use such a facility. 77
