Kitchen Area I
"A kitchen that's in love with my wife...Every
eye-delighting surface in this all-electric kitchen can be wiped
clean in seconds. A textured pattern of Formica laminate - mingling
the white of the vinyl flooring with the freshest of spring greens
- covers cabinets of new design by Yorktowne...The slim Frigidaire
refrigerator-freezer at far right actually has a roomy 19-cubic-foot
interior. Stainless sink next to dishwasher includes a disposer."
Book, p. 21
Not to mention the
juicer. There are several things here that will prove to be quite
popular in coming years, including the double stainless steel
sink with built-in disposal, the dish sprayer, the well placed
built-in dishwasher, the refrigerator nook, and the plentiful
cabinets both below and above the work areas. Note also the good
over-sink lighting as well as the nice three-unit Andersen thermopane
window opening onto the patio and back yard.
Kitchen Area II
"Double electric ovens by Frigidaire are
set in storage wall at convenient height. Smaller one is electronic
- a glimpse into the future. Doors glide upward and cutting-board

Note the aluminum exhaust
hood, the sliding-door spice cabinet, the chemistry-lab type sink
with swan neck spout and wide handle faucets, and the built in
double ovens. We had a Frigidaire range like the one pictured,
except the burners were where the cutting board is shown here.
The oven doors lifted up like on a Mercedes-Benz 300SL Gull wing.
I don't think we ever got the electronic oven features to work,
and the electric burners were nearly impossible to heat with accurately.
Still, it looked good.
Kitchen Area III
This gets a bit confusing, so
let's get oriented by standing in kitchen area III and looking
back at area I. The sliding yellow panels serve to separate the
eating area from the rest of the kitchen. (This and other tiny
decorating variances indicate that this series may have been
photographed in two different houses.)
Now we'll swing around to where
the refrigerator is and look back at area III, where we see that
it has a kitchen office and a built in charcoal grill!

"The compact office, tucked into an out-of-the-way
corner of the kitchen, takes no more space than a pantry closet
but controls the entire house. Here menus are planned, groceries
ordered, bills and files kept orderly. With the house-wide Miami-Carey
intercom system, it's possible to answer the front door or speak
to members of the family in any of the various rooms without leaving

The door just barely
visible in the extreme left of the picture leads out onto the
patio. The doorway in the center of the picture leads into the
Closeup of the breakfast
area. Note the Eames-like chairs and the fully extended sliding
screen. The table has been set with "World's Fair" Melmac
quality melamine dinnerware.
