Football season is in full swing and the kids are back in school, which means summer is sadly coming to an end; although with the recent heat wave here in Los Angeles, fall is perhaps the farthest thing from your mind.
To get you ready for when the cool weather eventually comes, here are a few of The Agency’s “For Sale” homes with indoor accommodations, activities, and views perfect for hosting fall barbeques, football parties, Sunday brunches, and whatever else will put a little pumpkin spice in your fall.
Santa Monica’s House of Rock
2009 La Mesa Drive, Santa Monica, CA
This English Cottage – Tudor estate, which overlooks the Riviera Country club, offers a grand-scale yet inviting aura fit for a football-loving, party-throwing family. The main entertainment and living space, which once served as the performance room for Frank Sinatra and Kathryn Grayson, features high-vaulted ceilings, stained-glass windows, and custom furniture that calls for a party. For the sports fanatics, there is a separate living room with a large flat screen TV that rests upon patterned-wooden walls. The long hallway-style dining area and large kitchen table are ideal for hosting fall, food-related festivities.
The home is also unique because it has a recording studio, which was built by a multi-Grammy winning producer, and high-end companies such as Blue Microphone, Vintage King, SSL, Audio Perception, and JSX Audio, just to name a few. In the colder months, recording artist types will never have to leave their home to get work done.
5252 Amestoy Ave, Amestoy Estates
This Tuscan beauty has a dual living and dining room that opens to a great outdoor space, perfect for Sunday football parties. In one of the entertainment rooms, you will find a jumbo fireplace with a large flat screen above. You will also find a full bar outfitted with leather swivel chairs; buyers will be wise to invite over their cocktail-savvy friends.
For those cooler fall nights, there is a private, heated pool and a Jacuzzi, both with plenty of room for friends to join in on the fun.
Simple, Quaint and Fully-Equipped
5759 Valley Oak Drive, Los Feliz
The generous lighting within this Los Feliz property will surely make it easier to get over those End of Summer blues, as the sun fills up the white walls and glass railing. The space has a spacious patio amidst trees and other shrubbery, perfect for smaller group gatherings. The balcony area is great for overlooking the city views with a glass of wine in hand. Throw in a couple heat lamps and you’re set.
Everyday Is A Beach Day
965 Mandalay Beach Rd, Oxnard
What could be better than being near the ocean 24/7? This coastal home has huge windows and a view so amazing, there is no need to travel anywhere, which is ideal during cold November nights. This two-story property has double-high-beamed ceilings and literally sits on the sand; it is perfect for beach bums who never want summer to end.
Amenities include a cool breakfast bar area for an indoor Sunday brunch. This house is great for the entertainer types, with its family room equipped with a theatre. The buyers’ friends will be more than happy to watch the football game on such a large screen.
