Jeannie & Jubi Hillery
571 Audubon St.

If you ask any serious cook and entertainer what his or her dream kitchen would look like, chances are it would look something like the kitchen of Jeannie and Jubi Hillery. With the renovations complete in January 2012 on their historic Audubon home, which sits on a quarter-acre of land, the Hillerys’ luxe kitchen features both great design and great hardware, including a Sub-Zero refrigerator, freezer and ice-maker and a six-burner restaurant-quality range by Wolf.

Other top features of the Hillery kitchen include a custom-designed and -manufactured hood, a stainless-steel sink built into the spacious island in the center of the room and a KitchenAid warming drawer. This item ensures that every dish prepared is served hot and satisfying, no matter the wait time, and it is a chef’s delight.

Not only can this space produce gourmet-quality meals, but it also makes guests actually feel like they are in a gourmet-quality restaurant. The space is set off by beautiful Holiday beaded inset cabinets in Winter, supplied by Cameron Kitchen & Bath Designs. The inset style lends a modern and sleek air to the room that nicely complements the powerful stainless-steel appliances.

The Hillerys’ renovation project was overseen by Cameron and Crane Builders. Sara Hillery oversaw the kitchen design, as well as the custom hood, along with Gerald Johnson of Cameron.
