In the enormous working kitchen, traditional details meet ultra modern chic.
The room features theater-style tracklighting and recessed halogen lamps that illuminate slate gray tile and stainless steel counters. This kitchen makes a wonderful entertaining room. The kitchen raised on a platform and is punctuated by a stainless steel bar with 4 stools that separate the space between the pocket doors and working kitchen area. The focal point of the room is a working cast iron wood burning fireplace that draws guests into the social area around the bar. To the left of the fireplace is a built-in cabinet that holds an entertainment center (CD, casette player, phonograph, tuner, television) with which drives built-in remote speakers throughout the house and garden.
The cooking area features a very large commercial-grade Traulsen refrigerator/freezer, oven, stove, microwave and dishwasher. The kitchen sink overlooks the deck and garden and includes a "Steaming hot" water faucet which produces boiling water on demand. There is ample space in the cabinets and shelves throughout this unique room.
Adjacent to the kitchen is a full bath (with shower) and unique stainless steel sink/toilet. The two doors on the raised platform at the back of the kitchen lead to the 20' x 16' deck with a retractable awning to protect from the sun and a spiral staircase leading to the lower patio/garden.
