It’s that time again. The time that, for me, is almost like a week long holiday. That’s right everyone, I’m talking about the U.S. Open. All of the greatest tennis stars are here in America, Queens, N.Y. to be exact, to compete for the title. Tennis is truly one of the most grueling and technical sports there are. I always dreamed being a Williams sister, commanding and dominating the court. Unfortunately though those dreams never came true but it’s okay, I make up for lost dreams by attending the huge event, which runs this year from August 26th – September 9th, annually. I watch intently, try my best to be quiet, and savor every moment of such a beautiful game.
So, in honor of this year’s U.S. open we here at Coldwell Banker thought it would be clever to showcase five gorgeous homes that feature some incredible tennis courts that are tournament worthy.
Having a home court definitely comes in handy when one is trying to perfect their game. I certainly wish I had one but for now, let’s live vicariously through these homes.
1. Los Angeles, CA
Magnificent ocean view property consisting of 3 parcels encompassing 2.65 Acres. Long private drive leads to chic contemporary 4 bedroom, 4.5 bath home designed by noted architect Richard Dorman with clay tennis court, vineyard, putting green and infinity pool. Breathtaking city to ocean views, dramatic open spaces and walls of glass.
2. Bainbridge Island, WA
Enjoy waterfront living and one of the finest grass tennis courts in the country in a Puget Sound setting. It’s the kind of place you’d book for your next vacation if you didn’t already live here. Cottage style log clad home and guest house; plus pool house that sits on six completely fenced acres and 206 feet of sandy, Agate Passage waterfront.
3. Highland Park, IL

This amazing family home is comprised of generous over sized family and living rooms, a mother-in-law suite, children’s suite, flowing indoor/outdoor living areas that transition from every room, incredible ocean and mountain views, gourmet kitchen, wine cellar, sunken bar, indoor/outdoor dining, two walk-in pools, outdoor bar area, tennis court, separate guest quarters, upper and lower manicured lawns and is perfect for living and entertaining.
5. Kilauea, HI
Palm Royale at Kilauea Bay completely redefines the meaning of elegant island living. Breathtaking expansive views of the regal shoreline of Kauai and the Kilauea Point National Wildlife Refuge are yours to enjoy from this very generous Neo-Hawaiian Style Estate Home. With freshness and sophistication, this architecturally designed 6 bedroom/ 5.5 bath home is lavish yet comfortable in its well thought out design.
