Forget the Man Cave—These Spaces Will Make Dad Swoon

Posted on Friday, June 15, 2018.

 

From a professional tennis court to an entertainer's level beyond compare, we’ve rounded up eight spaces fit for fathers of all stripes. Whether your dad’s a pool shark or wine connoisseur; cinefile or sun god, we’ve got him covered this Father’s Day—and all the days thereafter.

FOR THE POOL SHARK - 8 BEVERLY PARK, BEVERLY HILLS

Trading the typical barroom neon for natural light, the billiards room at this Beverly Park stunner, represented by Christopher Dyson, boasts major indoor-outdoor appeal. Folding pocket doors open the entire space to the pool terrace and lush grounds beyond, so dad can take in the views while he brushes up on his favorite game—and go for a swim to cool off afterward. We call it pool two ways.

FOR THE GUY’S GUY - 1251 SHADOW HILL WAY, BEVERLY HILLS

Sometimes dad just wants to spend some time with the boys, and there’s no shortage of amenities to keep the guys entertained at this stunning contemporary estate in Beverly Hills. An expansive lower level is the ultimate hangout, complete with an incredible auto gallery, walk-in wine cellar, pool table, plush theater and Calacatta marble bar with an underwater viewing window of the swimming pool above. Represented by Mauricio Umansky, Jon Grauman and Brendan Fitzpatrick, the home has often been likened to James Bond’s ultimate dream pad—and with its incredible jetliner views, sleek finishes and zero-edge infinity pool, dad can definitely play the part.

FOR THE WINE CONNOISSEUR - 2805 TENNYSON PLACE, HERMOSA BEACH

For the dad who prefers cabernets to Coronas, this Hermosa Beach residence will have him raising a glass. Represented by Courtney Lingle and Mauricio Umansky and located just blocks from the ocean, the home features not one but two wine cellars; the first features a bar and accommodations for 1,500 bottles, while an additional detached cellar holds 1,000 bottles and sits beneath a glass-floored pavilion with a fireplace and dining area. Cheers!

FOR THE TENNIS PRO - MAISON ROGER, BEVERLY HILLS

Set on approximately 1.3 exquisite acres in Beverly Hills, this iconic Paul Williams-designed estate, represented by Stacy Gottula, features a professional, lighted tennis court fit for the pros. The impeccably maintained, north-south-facing court is surrounded by beautiful rose gardens and terraces, including an elegant dining pergola perfect for relaxing and cheering dad on while he practices his backhand.

FOR THE GRILLMASTER - 924 PALISADES BEACH ROAD, SANTA MONICA

A great grill isn’t the only thing that makes a great barbecue—it’s the whole package, and this Santa Monica Beach standout has it all. Inspired by a luxury super yacht, the Molori-designed masterpiece, represented by Santiago Arana, features a stunning rooftop entertainment area complete with a full kitchen, bar, built-in grill, and glass-walled plunge pool, all overlooking stunning ocean views.

FOR THE SUN GOD - TRITON VILLA, TURKS & CAICOS

If dad can’t get enough of the surf and sun, he’ll be over the moon for this Caribbean dream house. Set on over two acres and showcasing 155 feet of beach frontage, the luxury villa, represented by Ian Hurdle, boasts over 12,000 square feet of lavish, sunlit living space, including an outdoor kitchen, beachfront yoga pavilion, private tennis court, and large glass-front pool with an infinity-edge hot tub.

FOR THE CINEFILE - 2267 CHISLEHURST DRIVE, LOS ANGELES

A home theater is an absolute must for a movie buff, but the stunning cinema in this striking Los Feliz estate, represented by Mauricio Umansky and Jon Grauman, takes the experience to a whole new level. The plush, art deco-inspired theatre is the perfect place to cozy up for movie night—and the home’s iconic, Old Hollywood appeal just might inspire dad to revisit his favorite L.A. Noir classics.

FOR THE BEACH LOVER - 5102 GANSEVOORT VILLAS, TURKS & CAICOS

If a day at the beach is dad’s idea of a day well spent, it doesn’t get better than Gansevoort Villas T+C. Represented by Nieve O’Neill and Brendan O’Neill, the stunning oceanfront villa combines the luxury of homeownership with all the perks and amenities of nearby Gansevoort Turks+Caicos Hotel on Grace Bay. The open-concept, four-bedroom residence features a private courtyard with covered lounge and two pools, including an oceanfront infinity-edge pool that leads to a sunken fire pit and lounge and down to an above-water sun deck.
