With the 4th of July coming up in just a few days everyone is finalizing beach day plans, family parties and where to catch the best fireworks. Well in honor of Independence Day and the classic American tradition of the backyard BBQ, we decided to share some of the most amazing backyards available on the market right now. These SoCal listings make us want to fire up the grill, jump in the pool and light some sparklers for the ultimate 4th of July backyard BBQ.
1. Beach City Paradise
This home has undergone $200,000 worth of remodeling and it certainly is impressive! We wouldn’t mind partying in this backyard all day and then checking out the fireworks off the Hunting Beach Pier at night. That's right, this home is just minutes from the beach and a quick drive down to Main Street where there are 4th of July festivities are happening all weekend long. Check out a this event and more July 4th Fireworks for 2014 in Orange County on our blog.
This backyard also has a newly built in BBQ with stacked rock and tile counters and umbrella bar so that you can cook up your hot dogs and burgers in style. Gather round the grill for a beer or sip your sangria pool side - either way it's a party at this Huntington Beach home.
The whole backyard has a luxury look and feel with a salt water pool, raised spa with waterfall and tons of beautiful accents like rocks and boulders throughout. 4th of July or any time of the year, we'd like to party poolside at this place!
2. Inland Island Resort
1556 Longhorn Way, Norco CA 92860 This 5 bed 4.5 bath home may be out in the Inland Empire but it's got all the trappings of a 5 star island resort. The 60,000 gallon pebble pool has rock falls, a grotto and beach entries so you really feel like you're vacationing in the tropics.
No island resort is complete without a thatched palapa bar and grill - good thing this Norco home has one! But don't let the island look fool you, it's state of the art including a BBQ, fridge, and TV plus the entire yard is wired with a stereo sound system.
We love the cool rock gas fire pit - it's sensible and tons of fun for the whole family! Plus you can climb up the spiral staircase to the second floor deck to sunbath during the day and catch some local fireworks around the neighborhood at night. You can check out our list of 4th of July events and fireworks happening in Inland Empire if you're going to be in the area.
3. Posh LA Party Pad
1101 Stradella Road, Los Angeles CA 90077 Situated high up in the hills of Bel Air this home is a custom master piece. But why is it the perfect place to party it up for Independence Day? The view of course! Spend the day by the pool and once the sun goes down you will have your very own front row seat to all of the best firework shows in Los Angeles.
This panoramic ocean and city view is unmatched. That makes this backyard pool party unlike most you'll find across Los Angeles.
We wouldn't mind laying out in our red, white and blue duds waiting for the amazing sky show to begin!
4. Rancher's Resort
17575 Log Hill Drive, Norco CA This Equestrian themed estate has horse stables and one amazing backyard set up perfect for the ultimate 4th of July BBQ. What sets this yard apart from the rest is it's landscaped with fruit orchards and vegetable gardens so you can kick it organic with some homegrown grilled veggie skewers and other healthy snacks for your party.
Plus you can entertain the whole neighborhood with all the cozy seating around this outdoor fireplace. It's also the perfect opportunity to make some special summer desserts - s'mores anyone?
And of course this backyard paradise would not be complete without some amazing pool side facilities. There is a built in bar and BBQ next to this saltwater pebble pool with a water fall, behind which is your very own grotto spa. Romantic? Yes. Perfect spot to play out our very own pirate adventure? I think so.
Wherever you party for your 4th of July, enjoy! For more amazing backyards and inspiration for your own backyard remodel check out our Pinterest board Yards To Yearn For.
