24/7 Wall St.: Eight Amazing Home Amenities for the Rich

Open Entertaining Kitchen

Location: Saint Barthelemy, Home price: $21.8 million
Square footage: N/A

An open entertaining kitchen could be built in a suburb or perhaps beside a cool urban garden, either of which would be nice, but not nearly as expensive as locating it in a villa in the French West Indies. Sometimes location is the biggest differentiator, rather than room size, building materials or fixtures. At any price point, in an open entertaining kitchen you are seeking a casual yet compelling space to gather your friends or family. Altogether, this property is composed of several bungalows along a terrace, including a villa. The four bedrooms and a heated infinity pool face the sea.

Morris’s architectural view: In an open entertaining kitchen you may “use a giant island to act as a separator between the kitchen and dining areas. If it’s a casual (event), it’s a family-like space. If it’s a formal (event), you have staff working there.”
