Replacing a kitchen window

We are renovating our kitchen in our 90 year old home and we are choosing Shaker-style cabinets in off-white for the main part of the kitchen and a dark stain on the beverage centre unit (will include a wall oven, bar sink and wine fridge) with either Shaker doors or slabs. We  got the idea from a home featured in a recent issue of H & H. My dilemma is this - we are replacing a large window that faces another house clad in green asbestos siding. We obviously don't want to be able to see this ugly view, so we are considering putting in a 16" X 42" leaded window with small bits of stained glass in a topaz colour (very neutral). It certainly fits in with the age of the house but I'm wondering if it's too "antiquey" for the look of the new kitchen.
