There’s no place like home for the holidays, especially when your home has everything you need to comfortably accommodate the whole family, ring in the new year with friends and still enjoy some time to yourself. From grand estates with dining rooms ideal for traditional feasts and turnkey townhomes where you can host a cozy movie marathon to luxurious compounds that offer you and your guests privacy alongside every amenity imaginable, these homes invite you to relive your seasonal traditions and create new ones.
Wine and dine your guests in style of historic proportion. Represented by Giddeon Lang-Laddie, this magnificent property features everything you need to entertain: a gourmet kitchen where everyone can gather around the island, a lit onyx bar area for cocktails, an oenophile's dream wine cellar and a raised platformed dining area worthy of its own Michelin star. Guests can also feast their eyes on the custom Chiswick Stain Glass windows, views of the Thames and a screening of the latest blockbuster in the 10-seat home theater.
Built in 2013, this dazzling canal-front home represented by Sandro Dazzan boasts an open floor plan that invites relaxed yet elegant entertaining for the holidays and throughout the year. The gourmet kitchen has been outfitted with Miele appliances, two dishwashers and a walk-in pantry. When guests are finished with dinner, head up to the rooftop Jacuzzi or enjoy some billiards in the bonus room.
Expansive and verdant grounds at this iconic midcentury compound can accommodate hundreds of guests, while the semi-open kitchen, formal dining room and living area create the perfect backdrop for more intimate holiday gatherings. And while you’re busy baking or mixing cocktails, guests can enjoy taking in the mountain views. Craig Knizek holds the listing.
This completely custom Malibu estate will make your guests feel as if they’ve been transported to a five-star Greek resort for the holidays. Represented by Eric Haskell and designed by financier Daniel Starr in collaboration with Saffron Case Homes, the property has been designed for effortless entertaining and includes a gourmet kitchen, built-in sound system, home theater, wine cellar and game room. Guests can even enjoy their own separate residence on beautifully manicured grounds featuring a sparkling pool, volleyball court and fire pits.
Represented by Todd David Miller and Cliff Smith, this stately Georgian Colonial features nine bedrooms for hosting the entire family. Enjoy all the charm of New England architecture as well as a host of modern amenities, such as an open floor plan and sanctuary-like primary suite with a balcony overlooking the pool, garden, basketball court and a separate two-bedroom cottage.
Enjoy a snowy holiday season near some beloved ski resorts at this turnkey townhome. After a day on the slopes, you and your guests can return to relax with some hot chocolate on a quiet deck or soak sore muscles in your private hot tub. A nearby clubhouse provides access to a pool and gym as well as outdoor fire pits ideal for gathering. Lara Valdes holds the listing.
