An investment in a luxury home with a tennis court not only makes sense in terms of adding value to the property. Tennis courts, being a rare feature, also boost the luxuriousness of a property, according to Hilton & Hyland, a leading luxury property broker in California.
Homes with private tennis court generally attract premium offers, according to the brokerage. After all, a tennis court means that a luxury property lies on a spacious lot.
Not many luxury homes can boast of having a private tennis court as well, so it adds a touch of exclusivity and uniqueness.
Here are some of the best luxury properties with tennis courts that $20 million can buy in California.
A Luxury Property With A Championship Clay Court
Listing Price: $20 million
It’s not all hard courts when it comes to home courts in Los Angeles. This park-like estate in the heart of Brentwood ditches the traditional playing surface for a championship clay variety.
Key details of the 2-acre property:
- 3,581 square feet of living space
- 7 bathrooms
- 6 bedrooms
- 2 personal guest homes
- 2 swimming pools
- Great room
- Waterfalls and mature trees
- Wooden beamed ceilings
The great room features a set of French doors that leads to the backyard, where the tennis court is adjacent to two swimming pools.
Properties like the Mandeville Estate have become more popular since the Covid-19 pandemic. Aside from a private tennis court, many have realized the benefits of owning a property with multiple entertainment areas.
A Sprawling Estate With A North/South Tennis Court
Listing Price: $19 million
A tennis court with a north-south orientation is better because there are no distracting shadows due to sunlight.
In Beverly Hills, an approximately 17-acre land parcel was sold partly because of a north-south tennis court. The said tennis court already implies the estate’s mint condition.
That’s because north-south tennis courts can’t be constructed if there are problems with space or terrain.
Key details of the 17-acre property:
- 4 combined lots
- Permits for 3 additional homes
- Permits for over 27,000 square feet of living space
- With gas, power, sewer and water connections
The lot sits on a gated, paved cul-de-sac location along Antelope Road. The private tennis court at the property has several light posts.
Los Angeles County restricts residents from building new courts with lights. For this reason, buyers favor an estate with existing lights for the tennis court.
A Secluded Home With A Refinished Tennis Court
Listing Price: $16 million
Hilton & Hyland listed this property in Beverly Hills where a buyer can own a recently refinished tennis court.
The 614 North Beverly Drive property also has existing lights for the court. The future owner can remodel the property or rebuild their dream home.
Key details of the 5,269-square-foot property:
- 6 bathrooms
- 6 bedrooms
- Pool area
Set within mature foliage and behind gates, the property is just a short drive away from popular amenities. The Los Angeles Country Club, for instance, only takes a five-minute drive from the luxury home.
A morning walk to Beverly Gardens Park only takes less than 10 minutes. From there, several luxury retail stores remain within a short distance as well.
A Celebrity Estate With A Traditional Tennis Court
Listing Price: $11.75 million
This property at 2620 Benedict Canyon Road in Beverly Hills is the best choice for someone who desires a traditional tennis court. The court area has more than enough deck space to accommodate guests.
Key details of the 5,521-square-foot home:
- 4 bedrooms
- 5 bathrooms
- Brick swimming pool
- Formal dining room with custom lights
- Kitchen with marble island
- Living room with stone fireplace
- Open-concept floor plan
- Separate family room
- Walk-in, temperature-controlled wine room and bar
Despite the estate’s size of 1.5 acres, residents would easily find their way because of the estate’s terrain. Seamless transitions between the indoor and outdoor areas are the result of optimal design.
The celebrity estate is in the south of Mulholland Drive, which is also known for its famous residents such as David Lynch and Madonna.
