As we gear up for New Year’s Eve, we’ve got entertaining on the mind. From an oceanfront estate on the Southern California coast to luxury towers in Los Angeles, these five listings across the golden state will have you planning your next soirée before the ball drops.


Among the most impressive oceanfront estates on the Southern California coast, this nearly three-acre, gated, seaside compound, represented by Santiago Arana, was masterfully designed for entertaining. Showcasing 450 feet of ocean frontage and views from every major room, French doors off opulent two-story entertaining spaces offer an effortless flow to incredible grounds beyond. With nearly 13,000 square feet of luxurious living space plus mature gardens, generous terraces, event lawns and a 55-foot oceanfront pool, you’ll never need to worry about narrowing down your guest list.


We’re not sure what view we love more from this Mission Bay loft: the iconic Bay Bridge and its stunning evening lights or the prime vantage point for sold-out concerts and Giants games at AT&T Park. Either way, you’d be hard-pressed to find a friend—or forty—who wouldn’t want to spend an evening at this incredible home, where some of the city’s best views and entertainment are literally right outside the window. Represented by Rachel Swann, the residence is located within an amenity-rich building that features a world-class pool, club room, business center, theater and gym, all adding to its sophisticated city appeal.


A collection of 56 residences set to debut on L.A.’s esteemed Wilshire Corridor, The Liddel offers a thoughtful blend of timeless sophistication and contemporary vision. Represented by Don Heller, residences range from sleek, 1,030-square-foot one-bedrooms to exquisite three-bedroom, 2,700-square-foot penthouses complete with terraces overlooking the city. A variety of elegant gathering spaces will keep guests thoroughly entertained—from a posh residents’ lounge complete with a bar and fireplace to a sleek wine tasting room and expansive Sky Lounge rooftop terrace perfect for après-dinner cocktails.


Situated on a coastal bluff 100 feet above the Pacific Ocean, this iconic seaside compound, affectionately known as Villa Montara, offers a taste of Malibu, Big Sur and Pacific Coast Highway just moments from San Francisco and Silicon Valley. Represented by Justin Fichelson and situated on .61 acres of prime California coastline, the home has been stunningly imagined for grand-scale entertaining. Showcasing impeccably designed living space with floor-to-ceiling windows throughout, interiors blend seamlessly with their surroundings while taking full advantage of sweeping ocean views. Outside, hand-stuccoed walls shield the grounds from the elements, offering privacy and seclusion while embracing breathtaking views of the crashing ocean waves and coastline beyond.


A new collection of residential towers located in Downtown L.A.’s thriving Central Business District, Metropolis offers a dynamic living experience with a wealth of amenities that make entertaining a breeze. Represented by The Agency Development Group, Metropolis features impeccably curated interiors by world-renowned SPAN Architecture designed to maximize light, air and space. Sophisticated kitchens and generous, open living areas set against a striking backdrop of the city skyline are primed for hosting the dinner party of your dreams. Should you and your guests desire a change of scenery or a little more room to roam, the resort-style pool and adjacent residence clubhouse, with a screening room, game room, fitness center, yoga studio and meditation garden, are perfect for hosting family and friends.
