Maybe you want to be close to nature, or maybe you’ve always dreamed of having a real-life safari in your living room. Or perhaps you are a rock & roll enthusiast who’s fantasized about having a $3.5 million recording studio in your basement.
If any of those apply, then last night’s Property Envy was for you. From a sprawling hillside complex built into the woods of Big Sur to a music lovers dream home in Santa Monica, the featured homes had plenty of amazing features.
Survey last night's featured properties in our gallery, then take our poll: which one was your favorite.
Red Wood (Big Sur, CA)
Designed by Mickey Muennig, this hillside complex is built right into the woods of Big Sur, CA, and features a 1600-square-foot art studio. The six-bed, 3.5-bath home sits on three acres, and features a red wood roof, which is fitting given its surroundings in the Red Wood Forest. The 6800-square-foot compound is valued at $7.5 million.
The Animal House (Greensboro, GA)
At 14,600 square feet, this Tuscan-style villa is massive. Situated on 5.7 acres, the lake front property is a wildlife enthusiast's dream: the property features more than 200 pieces of taxidermy, like lions, tigers, and an elephant head. The bill for those pieces alone was $250,000. For $10.9 million, this animal house can be yours (but the safari prizes are not included in the price).
The House of Rock (Santa Monica, CA)
This California estate is a music lover’s dream. Built in 1926, the 11,000 square foot home features a $3.5 million recording studio, a music room with 40-foot-high cathedral ceilings, and a massive kitchen sporting two ovens and two refrigerators (in case you ever need to host an opulent dinner party). And guests will eat in style in the chainmail-tinted dining room, which was inspired by Tina Turner’s stage costumes. Want to take a dip? The home features 2400-square-foot infinity pool, one of the largest in Santa Monica. This property can be yours for $22 million.
