With a large dining room, home movie theatre, billiard room and heated pool in their Martinez home, it’s no surprise Tobey and Jack Manton love to have parties.
The Mantons retired in the area, also home to their son’s family, seven years ago. For the first five years, the couple had a popular Masters party on the Sunday prior to the golf tournament.
“We are a party house,” said Tobey. “We don’t need much encouragement to entertain.”
Three upstairs bedrooms feature sitting rooms and attached baths to give the Mantons’ regular house guests privacy and comfort. Throughout the house, antique furniture and decorative pieces acquired in Mexico and Asia mix with more modern sofas, curtains and kitchen appliances.
Dinner parties, a Super Bowl party and a lobster roast in the fall make use of the home’s amenities, including a full bar and outdoor living room with firepit.
