Large Holiday Parties
If you’re hosting a larger gathering this season, there are a few essentials you’ll need: space, entertainment and maybe a wine cellar or two.
This home has an entertainment space to satisfy any crowd. The huge downstairs area has room for a pool table and large windows to see the entire snow covered backyard. After a game of pool, watch a movie in this home’s theater room!
We love the idea of hosting a group in this home’s gorgeous sunroom. With sweeping views of the backyard, you’ll all be able to watch the snow fall as you celebrate the season. You’ll feel cozy and warm while Toledo turns into a winter wonderland.
This basement was built for parties and has a bit of everything you need for holiday festivities. There’s a space to lounge and catch up with friends and family, an entertainment center for football games, a pool table, and a full bar.
This Perrysburg home is party-ready for a lot of reasons, but the most festive of them is the huge temperature-controlled wine cellar! With enough room for your entire collection, you’re sure to keep everyone merry and bright.
Intimate Family Gatherings
As the holidays approach, we tend to spend more time with family — whether that be gathered around the dinner table for a shared meal or in front of the fireplace. We found a few homes in the area that are perfect for just that!
We love the open floorplan between the chic living area and kitchen in this home. Not only will the whole family get to relax in front of the fireplace and watch the big game, but your family chef will get to be a part of the memories, too!
The breakfast nook in this Maumee home is nestled in a beautiful space filled with lots of natural light with direct access to both the kitchen and seating area. After you all have a festive brunch or dinner together, you can relax and reminisce in the cozy space.
This Temperance home is perfect for anyone with a large family. The layout from kitchen to dining area to living room allows for a bit of privacy, while still being part of the action. Football fans can cheer in the living room without bothering chefs in the kitchen. And the large, open space can fit the whole crew!
Picture your family making memories around this elegant dining table. We love the way the design separates it from the rest of the home, but leaves it open and airy. Lit up by huge windows and an open floorplan, the space is bright and cheery — perfect for the holidays!
In this Whitehouse home, the casual dining space and comfortable living area are separated by a beautiful stone fireplace. Warmth, food, relaxation, and a space where the entire family can come together — what more do you need?
Ideal for the Hostess
The holidays are a time for feasting — which means it’s also a season for cooking! If you’re the one preparing meals this year, then you should have a space that makes your job easy. These kitchens not only come fully stocked with appliances but also with design and decor to fuel all your chef dreams!
The kitchen in this updated home really stands out. Dark, rich cabinets separate it from the rest of the bright and neutral home. And, with two sinks, double ovens, and a Thermador range, you’ll have everything you’ll need to ensure your family is well-fed through the holidays.
This luxurious, modern kitchen has a separate beverage fridge, a gas range and butler pantry! Needless to say, you’ll be in chef heaven. Bar seating and a casual dining nook invite the whole party to join you — turning cooking into a fun activity for the entire family!
This home is filled with modern updates, but our favorite space is the kitchen. We particularly love the modern design and openness of this white kitchen! Because it’s separated from the rest of the house, you can host a small group at the dining table or safely keep your guests away from the prep area.
This kitchen has a modern cottage feel perfect for the holidays! Natural light pours into the room from the skylight, illuminating the unique cabinetry and design. With plenty of space to work and bar seating at the island, cooking will quickly turn into your favorite holiday activity — if it isn’t already.
