All these kitchens are in homes for sale in 19103.

luxury-kitchen

Everyone’s thinking about cooking this week. Well, not everyone. Not people like me, who wouldn’t know how to make stuffing even if you paid me to, and whose entire Thanksgiving crew includes a very cranky, just-neutered cat who’s wandering through the house uttering nonstop plaintive cries I can only interpret as, “Why? Why?”

But. There are many other people who cook, and for them — and even for me — it’s nice to dream of a phenomenal kitchen in which to whip up, over eight hours or so, a hearty Thanksgiving meal.




We've chosen six kitchens in luxury homes that are currently for sale in Center City that we think are tops -- either because the equipment is terrific or because the design is lovely. Half of them are on Delancey Street (or Delancey Place, if you're being grand about it).
