Piper House Kitchen, Darien, Conn.

Piper House at Kensett sets a high bar for production housing.

The materials and layout are inspired by English manor style, but updated with contemporary touches.

The adjacent dining room follows that program.

The kitchen is especially impressive for its mix of luxurious looking materials, delivered at an approachable price.

A marble kitchen island has seating on one side and workspace on the side that faces the range.

Yet "there's nothing crazy or undoable here," said the judges of the attractive details, including gleaming subway tiles, handsome cabinets, crisp-looking dark-framed windows, and open shelving.
