Custom woodwork offers old world grandeur

Written by: Hilary Daninhirsch

There is always something cooking in Dennis and Claudia Phillips’ Centerville kitchen. Though the two are technically empty nesters, it is rare when the kitchen isn’t brimming with a brood of children and grandchildren, most of whom live on 18 acres of property owned by the Phillips family; their kitchen was purposefully designed to accommodate large family gatherings on an almost daily basis. “The kitchen is the most important room in the house; that is where everybody gathers,” says Claudia.
