Businessman, philanthropist and author, W. Clement Stone, once said: “If you are really thankful, what do you do? You share.” Thanksgiving is the ultimate holiday for sharing the very simple pleasures of eating with family and friends. As the heart of the home, the kitchen is probably where the most sharing happens — it’s where bread is broken, wine is opened and conversations are had.

To get you in the sharing (and cooking) spirit, we collected four inspiring kitchens in listings currently for sale by Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage in California. Ranging from ultra-modern to traditional in style, these kitchens will surely speak to your design senses…and inspire you with visions of what your next Thanksgiving holiday might look like.

 

MODERN

916 Oxford Way
Beverly Hills, CA. 90210
$39,950,000

Glamorously situated behind the Beverly Hills Hotel, this Beverly Hills modern masterpiece  wows in every way possible. Inside its 20,800 square feet lies one of the most impressively designed kitchens with a sweeping marble slab center island open to the great room and lounge.

 

10718 Mora Dr
Los Altos Hills, CA. 94024
$ 18,000,000

This contemporary dream by Robert Swatt of the renowned Swatt Miers Architect team is a testament to its stellar Los Altos Hills location overlooking the Bay, the East Bay mountains and all of Silicon Valley.  But it’s the jaw-dropping kitchen that caught our attention with its high-contrast palette and artful blend of marble.

 

TRADITIONAL

14200 Calle Real
Goleta, CA, United States
$ 35,000,000

Villa della Costa’s rich and storied setting on the Gaviota Coast may offer panoramas of untouched seaside landscape and breathtaking 360-degree views of the mountains, pastoral countryside, Pacific Ocean and the Santa Barbara Channel Islands — but we are in love with its inspired take on traditional Spanish ranch architecture, as seen in the wide-open and expansive kitchen.

 

18851 Clearview Lane
Huntington Beach, CA 92648
$4,950,000

Sometime the secret to a memorable kitchen lies in the details. That is certainly the case for this lavishly designed Huntington Beach residence set in the Bluffs, a 24-hour guard gated community. The kitchen, while open and featuring an expansive sit-down bar with crystal chandeliers dazzling from above, is a showcase in pure opulence with artisan millwork, translucent backlit onyx stone, coffered ceilings with tin inlays, custom crafted wood flooring and more.
