Perched up on a bluff along Three Mile Harbor, this contemporary house has a kitchen with a modern-industrial look. The stainless steel kitchen island, with bar sink, offers a great workplace for the chef in the family, with the double-ovens and range within easy reach. A long island counter provides plenty of space for entertaining guests. Exposed beams run across the ceiling. Open and airy, there are large windows above the counters that let in light. The kitchen also overlooks the living room, which has water views of Three Mile Harbor (a 50-foot, wide path leads to the harbor!).
