This kitchen is everyone’s favorite feature, consisting of a mini refrigerator, sink, and stove top burners, grill and professional grade hood for ventilation.

The enclosed area can be utilized as mentioned year round. The screens which run the entire height of the floor to the ceiling of this rear enclosed area have removable plexi-glass so you can use the kitchen and entertainment space in the winter (about 3-4 weeks is about the time that it may be too cold).
