It’s already mid-June — that time of year when we celebrate all of the do-good dads in our lives on Father’s Day. In honor of this special day (June 18), we decided to compile a list of our favorite real estate offerings from Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage that celebrate some of the most common dad obsessions. Whether dad’s a basketball fan, a wine enthusiast or an Arnold Palmer-type who can’t be pulled away from the golf course, these unique homes and spaces will give him all the encouragement he needs to pursue his all-time favorite hobby. Happy Father’s Day!
For the Sports Fan
This Andrew Skurman-renovated traditional in Atherton has all of the bells and whistles to keep dad at home busy and entertained, including a theatre, wine cellar, beautiful pool, separate spa and 3-hole putting green. But the outdoor sports court, surrounded by a lush private setting with stretches of level lawn and flowering gardens, is where he can embrace his inner Golden State Warrior and shoot hoops with his buddies (or solo).
If dad’s passion is scoring an ace, then the grand tennis court of this world-class compound in Los Angeles will surely fit his fancy. Perched on an approximately 8.29-acre promontory, dad’s tennis match will be complimented by magnificent city, ocean and mountain views.
For the Golfer
For most die-hard golfers, it doesn’t get any better than Pebble Beach. This old California-style golf retreat, located on the 4th fairway of the Cypress Point Club in the prestigious estates area of Pebble Beach, will offer the dad who lives at the course every chance to improve his game. He can putt and chip from his own tee boxes, bunkers and a three-hole green to his heart’s content!
Serving as both a perfect escape and a golf enthusiast’s paradise, this private gem atop La Jolla was designed by famous architect Henry Hester and offers the perfect blend of work and play – just take a look at the mesmerizing golf course with jaw dropping ocean and city views!
For the Wine Collector
The wine cellar is pre-requisite for serious wine collectors — and this steller cellar in a Santa Barbara-inspired custom estate set in quiet, dreamy Saratoga meets all expectations. Bonus: he won’t be far from wine country in Napa and Sonoma Valleys, but he’s even closer to the Los Gatos-Saratoga Wine Trail.
Located in a prime Beverly Hills location just north of Sunset Boulevard, this brand-new villa is synonymous with the elegance and cool vibe of the famous SoCal locale. Dad will certainly get a kick out of storing his wines in this stylish wine cellar with glass doors.
For the Gamer
Playing games can be a social affair or a solo adventure — and the private game room in this 8.14-acre Glorietta Estate in Orinda offers the gamer dad an opportunity to enjoy both.
Dad’s pool games will suddenly become more intriguing as incredible views overlooking the Murrieta-Temecula valley and beyond adorn his play space. The view-centric estate is perfect for entertaining and will allow dad to host the ultimate game night alongside his buddies.
For the Film Buff
Does dad love watching old movies? Give this luxurious 5-star Atherton abode, by renowned architect and builder Pacific Peninsula Group and landscape designer Thomas Klope, a whirl. It comes with an array of entertaining options, including a game room and private home theater.
Movie nights will never be the same after watching a flick in the comfort and luxury of this majestic Mediterranean estate. The privilege of being the most expensive single-family residence built in the history of Rancho Mirage certainly rings true in the home’s mini movie theatre with recliners and stunning wall and ceiling accents throughout.
