The Mega Millions jackpot is flirting with the billion-dollar mark. After no winner claimed the prize–which now sits at $940 million–on Tuesday, lottery ticket holders have another chance of striking it rich today when another drawing will be held.
If fortune smiles on you, here are a few properties that you could buy in the Bay Area with that cool almost billion-dollar prize. Even though the Bay Area’s luxury home market is cooling, there are still plenty of pricey properties up for sale.
San Francisco’s most expensive home, 3450 Washington St., is a stately manor in posh Presidio Heights. The beautifully designed home boasts six bedrooms and 8.5 baths and comes in at a spacious 9,865 square feet.
Escape to Marin County with this modern waterfront home once featured in Architectural Digest. In addition to the views of the bay, you can enjoy a wine cellar, a two-story entertainment room, a full bath with a sauna and an infinity pool.
Enjoy life at the top at 2006 Washington, where the penthouse suite is up for sale. The newly renovated pad offers drop-dead gorgeous views of the bay and a wraparound terrace with elegant French doors for enjoying the skyline.
Looking for a luxurious coastal lifestyle? The beach house of your dreams, perched on the bluffs of Sea Cliff, lives at 9 25th Avenue. The elegant home, which resembles an Italian villa, offers views of the Golden Gate Bridge, the Pacific Ocean and Marin Headlands as well as a spacious courtyard and heated pool.
Coming in at a comparatively thrifty $5,379,800, this Oakland Hills mansion may not be as pricey as the others on this list but offers the opportunity for customization–if you dare to buy this unfinished construction. Designed to have an elevator, a sauna, a steam room, an indoor gym and a home theater, plus plenty of storage space for your six cars, boat or RV, you can choose to deck out this home as you wish and “customize it into its final form.” Put an offer in on this one if you’re looking to build the house of your dreams.
