California estate complete with everything from a rock climbing wall to a video games centre for sale for £14.3 million – Only “discerning global citizens” should to apply to view
Americans don’t do things by halves and if ever proof of such were needed, one only ought to look at the features of a £14.3 million ($22.5 million or €19.8 million) “estate” in Orinda, California where the selling agents boldly note: “Boredom is simply not an option”.
Launched to the market last week and situated 30 minutes from San Francisco, it is the list of extras that come with the 23,000 square foot property on 8.6 acres that is worthy of note. Amongst them are:
– A billiard room.
– A theatre.
– A panelled library.
– A 1,500 square foot banquet room.
– A wine cellar.
– A wood-fired pizza oven.
– An outdoor swimming pool.
– A dry sauna.
– A steam room.
– An infinity-edged spa with waterfall and fire pit.
– A yoga area.
– A tennis court.
– A racquetball squash court.
– A bocce centre.
– A rock climbing wall with a self-belay system.
– A putting green complete with a bunker and pitching area.
– A £63,700 ($100,000 or €87,800) full-swing golf simulator.
– A video games centre.
– An “old fashioned” swing tyre that “will keep guests [and] family endlessly entertained”.
– A 1,600 square foot 5-car garage with a car wash station.
– A Koi pond with cascading waterfall.

– And, finally, for the environmentally conscious: Electricity is supplied by automated solar panels and “bolstered” by an emergency backup generator.
Realtors Mark Attarha, Lauren Holloway and Rick Merritt of Bay Sotheby’s International Realty will surely simply be left asking those “discerning global citizens” (yes, that’s how they’re describing likely potential buyers) with the necessary funds: “Sir: Is there anything else you require?”
