Cali Comparables: Ultimate Party Pads for the Big Game

You set a certain budget for your house hunt — and you can’t go a penny over it. But what if you want to expand your search a wee bit beyond a specific neighborhood? We decided to play the comparison game by exploring what you can buy for a certain dollar value in various California neighborhoods with a series called “Cali Comparables”. We’re crisscrossing the Golden State to give you an idea of how far your dollar goes in certain areas.

This week we’re preparing for the “Big Game”, the one day a year where we gather around the TV to not just watch a good football game, but to also judge the commercials! These Riverside County properties may range in price, but they have one thing in common: they will all help you throw the party of the year.

74420 Mountain Vista Drive

$4,495,000

This resort-like estate at Vintage Club is like an oasis in the California Desert. The lush grounds feature an orchard with fruit-bearing trees, a private lake, custom pool and spa, and three waterfalls which are all situated on almost 38,000 square feet. Indoors, the property is just as grand with a gourmet kitchen, bar, and large living spaces perfect for entertaining and hosting a viewing party for the “Big Game”. The five-bedroom, eight-bathroom property exudes luxury with walls of glass looking out onto the gorgeous landscape outdoors. Whether your friends and family are watching exclusively for the commercials and half-time show, or are ready to cheer on their favorite team, this home will help you get the party started!

23795 Serreno

$5,000,000

Inspired by the Mediterranean feel of Santa Barbara properties, this home is the perfect place to throw a big party. Have guests coming in from out of town? There are two guest casitas on the property and a two- bedroom guest apartment. Many spaces are available for outdoor entertaining, including four wet bars, a theater with a 100 inch projector screen (big enough to watch for pass interferences), a recreation room with a pool table, arcade games, and of course a big screen TV. Large living and dining spaces can also be enjoyed. Outdoors, there are many more areas to entertain guests including a pool/spa, tons of dining space, and a built-in barbecue, all surrounded by grandiose palm trees. Score an easy touchdown by throwing a great party at this gorgeous property.

14 Strauss Terrace

$12,995,000

Everything about this property screams luxury – from the exclusive gated community of The Renaissance, to the sprawling grounds and grandiose architecture. The magic continues indoors into the living room, dining room, library, game room, and movie theater. With a two bedroom en-suite guest house, five bedrooms, and six bathrooms, there are plenty of spaces for friends and family to watch the “Big Game”. However, if you want to enjoy the gorgeous Southern California weather, take the celebration outside where you’ll find two different firepits, a mosaic tile pool, amphitheater and a nine-hole putting green. Also outdoors is a spacious seating area with a large flat screen TV.  Trade in your typical tailgate atmosphere for an epic party at this extravagant property!
