Sunny family spaces at the heart of Allegheny
A vaulted family room and sunny kitchen are at the heart of the Allegheny, a midsize family home designed for families who enjoy spending time together.
The kitchen is huge, effectively expanding the family room living area. Bay windows open up the nook, and four skylights bathe the area in rich, natural light. There's room here for the whole family to cook together. Counter space on three sides of the kitchen is augmented by a central work island capped with a chopping block. Other amenities include: a garden window, a pantry, an eating bar, and built-in appliances.
Most of the back wall in the family room is filled with sliding glass doors that open onto a large deck. Sliders to the left link the room to a screened porch that's also accessible from the master suite.
The formal dining room can be totally closed off from the kitchen. It comes outfitted with a wide built-in hutch. The parlor is bright, thanks to bay windows that fill most of the front wall. A stone fireplace adds warmth and charm when the weather turns ugly.
Entering the home, you step into a vaulted entry traversed by a second-floor walkway that overlooks both the entry hall and the family room. A powder room and utilities are just inside the door, and the French doors on the right open into the parlor.
The Allegheny's master suite is also on the main floor. It has a double vanity, walk-in closet, soaking tub, shower and private toilet. Three bedrooms are upstairs. Two share a bathroom, while the third has its own and a walk-in closet as well.
