Kitchen as Theatre!

Chef’s kitchen & a caterer’s dream! Three work stations!

Amazing Gardens!

The 6,086 sq.ft. lot to the North is included in sale. Planet Horticulture created a botanical paradise on the site of what was once a barren dry hillside. Surely this is one of the great gardens of the San Francisco Bay Area; three hundred species from all over the world bloom & thrive here during every season, & a walk up the winding path to the view meadow above informs, surprises & delights at every turn.
