Not only do you have one spectacular kitchen, you have two with the outdoor space that is equipped with a barbecue, sink, large island and custom-built pizza oven. Stylish features of the indoor kitchen include a two-tone back-lit stone island countertop, as well as Gaggenau appliances such as a refrigerator, built-in coffee system and wine refrigerator. “Stunning views of the Santa Lucia mountains coupled with the tranquility and privacy of the property will allow for your creativity juices to flow while preparing meals — whether you are cooking outside, inside or both,” notes listing agent Tim Allen. The contemporary home includes an impressive list of amenities on a six-acre gated property in Carmel Valley among the rolling hills of the Tehama Golf Club.
