Valentine’s Day is about spending time with the one you love, and while fancy restaurants and weekend getaways are nice, there’s nothing quite like snuggling up with your favorite person and spending a night in. From postcard-perfect sunsets to chef-caliber kitchens for cooking the ultimate Valentine’s Day supper, these five heart-stopping homes are sure to make your sweetheart swoon.
Nothing says Valentine’s Day in Southern California than a technicolor sunset over the Pacific in Malibu. This celebrity beach house in the private, guard-gated Malibu Cove Colony, represented by Sandro Dazzan, is perfect for a romantic holiday at home. Whether relaxing on the expansive oceanfront deck, enjoying a glass of wine by the living room fireplace, or walking hand-in-hand along the seashore, the home’s breathtaking views and classic beach house vibe will make a romantic out of anyone.
There are few gestures more heartfelt than cooking up an intimate Valentine’s Day dinner for your true love—and the chef-caliber kitchen at this Brentwood stunner will inspire your finest menu yet. Represented by Cindy Ambuehl, the home’s spacious, open kitchen features high-end appliances and a large, eat-in center island for prepping. Set the perfect table in the elegant dining room, which opens to the lit front porch, or dine al fresco by the pool and fire pit and enjoy the crisp California night.
Who needs a dinner reservation when you’ve got a million dollar view? Pop a bottle of bubbly and enjoy panoramic city and ocean views with your sweetheart at this spectacular residence in L.A.’s iconic The Century. Represented by Dan Weiser and offered for lease, the four-bedroom home boasts ocean and city views from every room, with just under 4,500 square feet of open-concept living space and multiple outdoor terraces. The full-service building offers a host of five-star amenities, including a doorman and concierge, valet parking, pool with cabanas, fully equipped fitness center, wine cellar and more.
Dinner and a movie is a classic choice for Valentine’s Day, but a private chef and state-of-the-art home theatre will take the holiday tradition to a whole new level. Represented by Mauricio Umansky and Adi Perez, the 12,000-square-foot masterpiece features elegant finishes and floor-to-ceiling walls of glass that bring the outdoors in. Place a call to your favorite chef and have them whip up a special meal for you and your special someone while you sip your favorite vino in the park-like backyard, complete with expansive tiled patios, a tranquil meditation garden, built-in poolside bar and floating zero-edge infinity pool. After dinner, retire to the spectacular home theatre and watch your favorite Hollywood love story unfold on-screen.
With Valentine’s Day falling on a Thursday this year, we can’t think of a more perfect setting for an extended staycation than this magnificent, newly built Spanish estate in Brentwood Park. Represented by Santiago Arana, Mauricio Umansky and Mireya Rodriguez—and one of the few homes on South Rockingham with ocean views—the home defines the California lifestyle. From the elegant master suite with an incredible marble bathroom and romantic balcony to the exceptional lower level with a theatre, restaurant-caliber bar and wine room; breathtaking kitchen and great room with triple islands to the expansive, grassy backyard with ocean views, you can enjoy the romance of St. Valentine every day of the year.
