Planning Your Easter Egg Hunt

Screen Shot 2016-03-24 at 12.25.32 PM

Whether it’s the thrill of jelly beans, or the search for cash, you will never be too old for an Easter Egg Hunt. Many families can enjoy the free events around Pleasanton this weekend, or quality time in their own backyard.

Depending on your audience, you will want to consider the location and supplies necessary:

The younger they are, the more candy they will want. The chocolate-covered gourmet strawberry may not be the most appealing to a mad-dash of young children.

Those with a more refined palette and appreciation for fine wines may be interested in a gift card or first pick from the wine cellar.

Location is a key factor, and applies to hiding the eggs and the entire setting for your Easter Egg Hunt. We’ve collected a list of our favorite yards in the Bay Area, brought to you by Venture Sotheby’s International Realty

Set in the rolling Blackhawk Hills under Mt. Diablo is this palatial Mediterranean-style estate with extravagant, open living spaces. The exquisite home design implements marble flooring, stately columns, towering box-coved ceilings, thick crown molding, rotunda room entries, and massive picture windows to showcase the scenic surroundings. This home is built for sophisticated living and comes alive for large gatherings—host parties, graduations, and even weddings—all in the exclusive Blackhawk community.

One of the most beautiful and authentic Tuscan estates in the Bay Area, this estate is situated on 16.2 acres in a private, gated enclave in the Livermore Valley Wine Country. The property includes 14.9 acres of income-producing Chardonnay, Petite Sirah and Zinfandel vineyards. The Tuscan farmhouse is as gorgeous as it is warm, inviting and rustic. The sweeping great room, which perfectly blends the kitchen, living room and dining room, is supported by beautiful Italian cypress tree columns and an old growth redwood ceiling reclaimed from a Sonoma winery. The country kitchen features handcrafted cabinets from Provence and marble countertops from Italy’s Amalfi Coast.
