The chef’s kitchen has two cooking stations along with a “one-of-a-kind lighting fixture” over the island, the listing said. The elegant cooking space almost has a cafeteria sort of feel with its see-through refrigerator.

The dining room’s doorway includes “horns filled with peacock feathers,” according to Realtor.com.
