With the Super Bowl fast approaching and the Oscar race heating up, now’s the time to figure out where you and your friends should go for that prime viewing party. LA Confidential published an article this week featuring spectacular LA homes ideal for such events.

9133-Oriole-Way-17

Leading the pack is 9133 Oriole Way, a contemporary home perched in the Bird Streets above the Sunset Strip and represented by The Agency. “Awe-inspiring panoramic views, a full bar, a screening room, and big-screen televisions throughout are just some of the features that make this home a truly spectacular choice for hosting viewing parties,” notes LA Confidential. “Each room flows into the other and spills out onto a resort-like backyard complete with an outdoor poolside kitchen and entertaining space.” The estate is co-listed by Alejandro Aldrete, Blair Chang, and Mauricio Umansky.

Other homes featured include 229 Linnie Canal, a wide-open contemporary estate in Venice, “nestled right next to the beach town’s famed canals,” two grand estates in the Pacific Palisades, another home near the Sunset Strip, and a luxurious pad in Bel-Air.

534 Crestline Drive, in Brentwood, is a breathtaking contemporary estate with a spacious outdoor entertaining area overlooking the pool. The lower floor holds dual theaters ­– both a formal movie theater and a summer theater, which can be controlled by the in-home automation system. Adults can retreat below to a custom wine cellar and companion tasting room with a window that becomes a rear projection screen at the touch of a button. The estate is co-listed by Santiago Arana and Ari Shram.

Another property, 9555 Heather Road, boasts an architectural landscape reminiscent of an elegant, residential park, with its tree-lined property enclosing lush grounds, stone walkways, and beautiful views. Seemingly designed for large gatherings, the interior was recently redone by a Ralph Lauren designer to emulate an estate in the Hamptons. 9555 Heather Road is listed by CEO and Co-founder of The Agency, Mauricio Umansky.
