When Vartanian Custom Cabinet’s 99-year-old client decided to build a full-sized replica of Monticello, the 18th century home of Thomas Jefferson, the creation of a modern kitchen to meld with rooms of antiquity and distinction, was a challenge. A devotee of the architectural masterpiece and admirer of Jefferson himself, the client wanted to build his own version of the historic building as part of his legacy and to be an asset to the community. His vision was to create a home that was as historically accurate to the original Monticello as possible on the outside while including all of the amenities in a modern luxury home on the inside. He wanted every inch of his masterpiece to be spectacular, to have character, and to maintain historical integrity, while also being warm and comfortable and possessing the latest and best amenities. Since Jefferson was known for his interest in new cooking technologies at that time, the use of Wolf and Sub-Zero appliances were used to beautifully punctuate the historic space, offering today’s cutting-edge cooking technology.
