Large Holiday Parties
Every hostess dreams of the party that keeps every guest entertained! These houses not only have space for the crowd, but also have plenty of extras for even the wildest bunch.
Winter Wonderland in Luxury
The lower level of this home is already party-ready. A pool table, ping pong table, fireplace, entertainment center and kitchenette with bar seating await to impress your guests. Everyone is sure to stay entertained while snow falls on the landscape just outside the floor to ceiling windows.
A Space for Everyone
Each room on the main floor of this updated home has its own character — one dark and warm, the other bright and inviting. In the sitting room, guests can stay warm and mingle in front of the fire. In the other, you can all wine and dine surrounded by luxury.
A Great Room for a Great Party
With direct access to the kitchen, dining room and backyard, this home boasts the perfect party room — complete with a bar, a fireplace, and plenty of room to fit all your guests. The floor to ceiling windows will be perfect for watching the seasons change while you stay warm inside.
Intimate Family Gatherings
Every family needs a place to gather and spend time together, so we found the best family rooms, living rooms and dining areas for your whole group to do just that.
Cozy up with the Family
We love the cozy atmosphere and open floor plan in this Elkhorn home. Picture your loved ones lounging together in front of the floor to ceiling stone fireplace while the aromas of your family dinner cooking in the kitchen fill your home.
A Decadent Dining Room
We love the way this home’s decor separates the dining room from the living space. An open floor plan allows for breathability and space, but the contrasting wood floors and darker walls keep the home’s intimate vibe. Gather the whole family around this dinner table this holiday!
Family Time with a View
This Lincoln home is lit up by huge windows in the living room and the dining area. The entire family can eat dinner together, then relax in the living room while snow falls across the huge backyard wonderland.
Ideal For the Hostess
The most important part of any party is the food, and these kitchens are guaranteed to inspire all your hostess dreams. The only question is: which one will you choose?!
Functionality Meets Decadence
This home’s gourmet kitchen is straight out of all our hostess dreams! Luxury stainless steel appliances enhance the look of the marble countertops and the marble backsplash. But the real star is the gorgeous range. With double ovens and nine burners, you’ll be able to easily prepare meals for guests.
Sip a Cappuccino While You Cook
This kitchen turns hosting into a luxurious event. Surrounded by beautiful, rustic decor, you can prepare every course at once with its double ovens and a separate range. This home comes with a cappuccino maker, so you’ll be able to enjoy this classic drink while cooking your next meal! Each dining area also has it’s own kitchenette so no matter where the party decides to settle, you’ll be prepared.
Cook in Condo Style
Another luxury condo in the heart of downtown Omaha, this home has the perfect kitchen and dining space for an intimate gathering. Double ovens and a gas range ensure everyone will be well fed, while the wine fridge guarantees the adults will linger long after the meal is finished.
A Kitchen with a Modern Touch
We love the way this kitchen’s neutral color palette works with modern touches — like the subway tile and chic light fixtures. Bar seating invites everyone to join you in the kitchen so you can be a part of the action.
