For those who remain unconvinced that the kitchen is the heart and soul of the home, come over to our kitchen around the holidays. Much more than a room for cooking, the kitchen becomes the hub of activity. A place where the holidays begin and end, where guests spend quality time with family members, catch up on their personal lives, and cheer on their favorite football team.
To prepare for such an occasion, we looked through Trulia’s listings for luxury Los Angeles kitchens that are both stylish and functional, with the highest-quality appliances and easy-to-navigate layouts.
200 Delfern Drive, Los Angeles, CA
This spectacular Mediterranean estate in prime Holmby Hills features a spacious kitchen with top-of-the-line appliances and plenty of counter space for all your holiday food prep. For those more interested in socializing, a sitting area off the kitchen provides a relaxing area to watch the game or sample some of the delicious treats being prepared by the chefs a few feet away. With California’s warm climate, guests can also access the patio, beautiful backyard, infinity pool, and spa right off the kitchen.
1307 Sierra Alta Way, Los Angeles, CA
A wine lover’s dream, the formal dining room, right off the kitchen, is joined by a 21-foot motorized wine rack that enables a treasured vintage to travel from the upstairs master wing to your table at the push of a button. Bonus: Retreat to the master suite once you’re ready to call it a night, and a bottle of wine will be waiting for you as you enter.
8927 St. Ives Drive, Los Angeles, CA
Cooks in this kitchen will be able to enjoy spectacular views from the two-story great room while prepping their holiday feast. Walls of glass reveal the stunning views from downtown to the ocean. Guests can take in the city, craft a cocktail in the bar and entertainment area steps away from the kitchen, or sit back by the fireplace and enjoy the many TV holiday specials.
4651 Van Noord Ave., Los Angeles, CA
Keep your cookie cutters in the kitchen, because there is nothing cookie-cutter about this brand-new, RedSetter Development, custom-built plantation-style home in Sherman Oaks.
