City kitchens with a distinctly country vibe

The kitchen of this 5 bedroom townhouse at 105 W 11th Street (listed at $13.995 million) has a farmhouse sink, commercial grade range and copper counters, not to mention a 10-person dining area centered in front of a wood burning brick hearth and under a dramatic skylight.

Just because you live in a giant metropolis doesn't mean your home has to be equally urban in appearance. A country-style kitchen, for example, can create a nice balance between the concrete jungle beyond your front door and the casual, more relaxed way of life you may not even know you’re missing. All of these NYC-based cooking spaces incorporate homespun elements such as wood cabinets, oversized porcelain sinks, retro-looking fixtures and finishing. Who knows? Having one may even inspire your to cook more and take out less.

The cooking area of this open loft at 81 Grand Street (on the market for $5.5 million) was just renovated in a vaguely Euro-country style with 6-inch wide-plank oak floors, quartz countertops, high end appliances, a vented professional Bosch stove, tons of glass-front cabinets and a 40-bottle wine refrigerator. Bonus: The apartment can be combined with the one next door to create a super-sized home.

The French country-design of this custom kitchen—complete with 6-burner Wolf stove with a fully venting hood, a Sub-Zero fridge, a Bosch dishwasher, plus a full pantry and plenty of cabinet space—within a two bedroom, two-bath loft at 85 North 3rd Street in Williamsburg (on the market for $2.4 million), fits perfectly with the space’s original wood columns and beams and wide plank floors.

For $9.25 million, you get this eight-room co-op at 91 Central Park West with a kitchen that combines modern and country elements, including a drop-in sink with retro faucets and a window with shutters.

Glass-front cabinets, open shelving, and a window above the sink give the kitchen of this four bedroom, four-bathroom co-op at 101 Central Park West (yours for $18 million) a country-chic feel. The floral wallpaper doesn’t hurt, either.

This sprawling 4,500 square foot, four bedroom apartment at the Dakota at 1 West 72nd Street (priced at $14.5 million) features tall ceilings, shutters on the windows and this cozy kitchen with ceramic tile floors, open shelving, stainless steel appliances, and separate pantry.
