The Superbowl may be over, but entertaining season is never over. Especially in Southern California, in particular this pad. Imagine being able to host parties all year long in this gorgeous architectural estate.
“Rock star” living at its best, this home belongs to Justin Fargas, a standout running back at USC was drafted to the Oakland Raiders in 2003. He played seven seasons with the Raiders before retiring in 2010 as the ninth leading rusher in franchise history. His father Antonio Fargas, a pop culture icon, starred as "Huggy Bear" in the 1970's series "Starsky and Hutch" and has enjoyed a storied career in television and film.
Over the weekend, Brian Capossela, owner of Cap Equity, gave me a personal tour of the space. Given that I produce events for a living, often in private residences, I couldn’t turn down his offer. Cap Equity Realty is a boutique firm, which represents luxury properties for the entertainment industry and other high-profile individuals. The company also maintains a locations service, Cap Equity Locations, which exclusively represents properties for productions.
This striking, modern architectural home is situated on sprawling park-like grounds (a half-acre) complete with a two-story living room, 3 bedrooms, game/pool room, office, home theater, sleek kitchen and baths. Not to mention the outdoor saltwater swimming pool, hot tub, putting green and outdoor kitchen with grill.
You can only imagine the uplighting possible with the dramatic high ceilings, also ideal for hanging art, gallery style. The floors are made of concrete, which make it perfect for wear and tear, any spills, as well as summertime. There is also a secluded one-bedroom guesthouse, with kitchen, that could be used as a galley kitchen for catering parties, if need be. Or a place the kids might like to hang.
It is described as “a professional athlete’s dream and a rock star’s playground” but really it’s much more versatile than that, because of it’s excellent unconventionality. The property was just listed at $2,795,000 and is located in Sherman Oaks, south of the boulevard, east of Beverly Glen, convenient to both the 101 and nearby restaurants/shops. The property can be found here.
Justin is in a relationship with LSU women’s basketball coach Nikki Caldwell, which could very well have something to do with the recent for sale sign. We do know that this property will get swept up soon and would love to host a special event there.
