The Sarnataro sisters grew up sharing bedrooms, clothes, and inside jokes about their family foibles. As adults they continue to share, rallying nearly every summer weekend with their mother at a circa-1700s farmhouse in northwest Connecticut.
It was all that activity–indoors and out–that prompted the family to enlarge and update the kitchen, sunroom, and outdoor spaces. “It was all about family and being together,” says Jimmy Crisp, the Millbrook, New York, architect who, along with associate Sandee Mahoney, oversaw the renovation. “The family wanted space for everyone to hang out and enjoy being together, whether they’re cooking or just relaxing,” he says.
“The kitchen layout was all about movement,” Patricia says. Geri, who teaches at the Institute of Culinary Education in New York City, spearheaded the kitchen design, organizing efficient work zones and choosing high-performance professional-style appliances. Patricia, the family tea aficionada, requested a beverage center in one corner for making and storing teas, and a built-in cappuccino machine satisfies the coffee drinkers in the crowd.
Traffic flows easily into the adjoining sunroom, which has transom-topped sliding glass doors on the east, west, and south walls. “Light spills over from the sunroom into the kitchen during the day, which is wonderful,” Crisp says.
