As the weather cools and holidays are approaching, I find myself in the kitchen, not only cooking more, but talking to family and friends while soup is cooking or dinner is roasting. Appropriate appliances are essential, but also consider the functionality of the kitchen: is there plenty of seating, is it open to allow friends and family to come and go or does it allow for an intimate gathering within the kitchen? Take a look at some of the kitchens from my listings…
The kitchen from 7 Stone Hollow Way is stunning and functional in many ways. There is seating for at the island and the breakfast nook, so you socialize and entertain in the kitchen. The abundance of countertops offer opportunities for plating or a few glasses of wine. You can enjoy not only the company, but you can enjoy the scenery with the windows and the door out to the patio.
This kitchen from 31 Woodcrest Drive has a custom island with countless uses. From being able to converse with guests while preparing a meal with top of the line appliances, to extra counter space or even more seating for more entertaining. Enjoy the view of the property from the large bay window.
Having guests this time of year waft through the house like the delicious smell of your dinner in the oven is a wonderful way to entertain. I happen to agree that the kitchen is the heart of many homes and when there’s an opportunity to host a gathering, or a party within a party, it makes it that much better. Stay tuned for more great kitchens on new listings in Chappaqua next week and soon to be hot off the press photos of your DREAM kitchen on 18 Sterling Road South.
