The seasons do seem a little out of whack, but one thing’s for sure. Memorial Day signals the beginning of summer grilling season. Whether the planet’s climate will actually allow you to be outdoors most days is a story for another time. But, hey, enjoy while you can, my friends!
With visions of hamburgers, grilled sausages, and frosty beverages dancing in our head, we decided to focus on the dreamy side of cooking outdoors. We dug through all sorts of sizzling high-end homes to find the most savory outdoor kitchens on the market.
These outdoor kitchens aren’t designed for folks accustomed to throwing a few briquets into a hibachi and hoping for the best. Rather, these are aspirational spaces designed to inspire fantasies of living your best summer.
So bring your favorite sides and salads, along with a nice chilled bottle of rosé, and let these seven kitchens be your main course of inspiration for time spent outside…
Price: $8,600,000 Rooftop in the City: While we can’t promise many sunny days in the Mission neighborhood, we can promise you’ll enjoy cooking for friends from this rooftop perch. This kitchen with a view is outfitted with a grill, a fridge, and a fully functional sink. This cool cook space is designed for entertaining friends before retiring to the hot tub—conveniently enough also located on the roof.
San Francisco, CA
Price: $12,000,000 Plenty of coverage: This lakefront kitchen offers gorgeous views to complement your grilling skills. It will be easy to entertain all your hungry guests, thanks to the spacious bar area. Glassed in to keep pests at bay, the kitchen also sits right next to a pool resembling a private resort.
Price: $8,900,000 Huge in Hawaii: Located on the north shore of Kauai, this glamorous kitchen looks like an indoor space, but we assure you it’s open to the outdoors and serves as a complement to the mansion’s indoor kitchen. The spacious cooking area means you have plenty of room to work on perfecting your kalua pork and mac salad recipes, while enjoying the breezes coming in off Anini Beach.
Price: $11,000,000 Pavilion on Possum Kingdom Lake: We know the cliché about everything being bigger in Texas, but this massive outdoor kitchen space makes perfect sense in the Lone Star state. Put all the plates of barbecued meats on the picnic table, and let guests have it. Brisket, straight-up Manhattans, and lakefront views make for a potent combination!
Possum Kingdom Lake, TX

Newport Coast, CA
Price: $8,900,000 Fun in Fort Lauderdale: This mansion by the water known by the not-so-humble name of “The Royal Entertainers’ Mansion” lives up to the hype with its outdoor kitchen space. The outdoor cooking terrace measures in at a whopping 1,600 square feet, and comes equipped with abundant seating, a bar, a grill, and most crucially, an outdoor pizza oven. Abbondanza!
Fort Lauderdale, FL
Price: $9,750,000 Dine in the desert: During the summer months, it’s daring to cook outdoors when temps regularly hover in the triple digits.

Equipped with a huge grill, plenty of storage space, and a fridge, this kitchen stays cool no matter what the weather.
