Receptacle spacing on 42" bar height wall


I couldn't find anything in code to address this situation. In the kitchen we will have a 42" high wall that is open to the dining room with a 12" overhanging counter into the dining room. This is the wall with our slide-in range on it and there is about 6" of backsplash. It is the right-hand side of a U-shaped kitchen. From the back wall up to the range is 36". Do I need to have a receptacle in this area since it is larger than 24"? Since it is similar to a penninsula, do different rules apply? I wasn't planning on a receptacle here at counter level, only one lower in the wall for the range.

Can you post a sketch? If the countertop is more than 12" wide you need to meet the 2'/4' spacing requirements for receptacles.

I'm hoping the pic loads. It's definitely more than 12" i'm talking about, but since the wall behind the range countertop is only 6" high, I though differnet rules might apply.
