Southern California homes have a lot to offer, but sometimes they can be lacking in one key thing: storage space.
Attics and basements, which may be common in other parts of the country, can be hard to find in sunny Southern California, so most give up looking before they even start. On top of that, they get a spooky reputation, and are often portrayed as filled with cobwebs, dirt, and other unsavory items.
In reality, attics and basements don’t have to be unattractive, they’re actually quite useful. From storing your off-season items, to creating a home gym and/or office, or making a casual space to hang out or host guests, there are so many ways to make the spaces above and below your home work for you.
To save you some time, we found eight homes for sale that have an attic, basement, or both. Some even have wine cellars that come with built-in storage for your favorite alcoholic beverages.
Who would want a traditional basement when you can have a wine cellar? Perfect for hosting friends and family for a casual tasting, or just storing your favorite wines for later.
