Imagine carving the turkey, enjoying your Christmas meal and then wandering downstairs to your private bowling alley.
Whether you’re hosting a large group of out-of-towners for a festive event or celebrating with just the ones you live with, there’s something special about celebrating at home.
Well, imagine if you were celebrating in one of these four Texas luxury homes. You could host your Thanksgiving meal and then step downstairs into the bowling lounge. You could throw a holiday cocktail hour on the rooftop of your condo overlooking the skyline, or perhaps a Christmas garden party to enjoy that winter sunshine we get here in Texas.
Take a look inside these four luxury homes that have unique design elements fit for entertaining.
A downstairs bowling alley, game room and gun range
Some of us are content to doze on the couch after we’ve downed our turkey and pie. Other perhaps more ambitious Thanksgiving attendees might want to do something active after dinner. This Southlake home has a two-lane bowling alley, a game room, a billiards room and a two-lane gun range on the basement level. And for some rest and relaxation, there’s a sauna that fits 15 people downstairs too. This four-bedroom Southlake home sits on 6.27 acres and has a pool, spa, fire pit, pond and tennis court. The house is not currently on the market, but it was listed for $9,950,000 in August. Take a look around the house and read more.
Enough space to sleep 45 people
The square footage of this home in Brenham — about an hour northwest of Houston — amounts to more than an acre. Yes, that’s right, it’s pretty big at 44,602 square feet. As you might imagine, there’s plenty of room for entertaining. The home sleeps 45 people and has 11 bedrooms, 14 bathrooms and 12 half-bathrooms. It has multiple game rooms and living rooms, plus an exercise room, an indoor recreational room and an indoor shooting range. The home was previously on the market for $15,575,000 in August. Check out all of the amenities.
A rooftop pool and patio
Entertain up above from this two-level penthouse condo atop the Azure. The second level of the condo is an open deck and an entertaining area, complete with a pool and outdoor movie screen. There’s also an enclosed cabana with a living room, bathroom and wet bar. The condo is 5,025 square feet and has three bedrooms, four bathrooms and one half-bathroom. The home was on the market for $5,695,000 in May. Take a look at the views.
Indoor and outdoor entertaining
This Colleyville home sits on approximately 10 acres and has 9,541 square feet. For entertaining purposes and perhaps a functional element for Thanksgiving hosting, the home has two kitchens—one is a large catering kitchen that’s also a laundry space, the other is the main kitchen area. While the interior is expansive, the home’s outdoor entertaining areas offer another set of spaces for entertaining—from the glass-walled greenhouse to the pool and cabana. The home has four bedrooms, six bathrooms and one half-bathroom and is on the market for $7,400,000. Read more about the home.
