Celebrity chef Bobby Flay spent the last few months looking at a Midcentury Modern–inspired home in Los Angeles, but it was missing something he dreamed of: a chef-worthy outdoor kitchen.

Bobby Flay Taps Designers to Add Outdoor Kitchen to Home He Bought From Them

Bobby Flay’s got a lot cooking: On top of running his many restaurants across the country and growing his onscreen portfolio, the celebrity chef is also expanding his real estate holdings with the purchase of a new home located in the Hollywood Hills above the Sunset Strip, not far from the $6.5 million home he purchased in 2019. His new midcentury-style residence was originally built by Michael and Arya Martin, the married couple behind design firm OSKLO, as a home for themselves, but recently sold to Flay for $7.6 million. (Branden and Rayni Williams of Williams & Williams at The Beverly Hills Estates and Tomer Fridman of Hilton & Hyland held the listing.)

The free-flowing, open-plan house also features a sleek kitchen and a cozy media room, a living room outfitted with floating shelves and custom stonework, and a high-ceilinged great hall that looks onto an interior atrium containing an olive tree more than a century old. Much of the hillside home’s living spaces include glass walls looking
