Hot Properties: 5 Dallas Homes Built for Entertaining  

Dream destinations for your Thanksgiving gathering.
By Caitlin Clark |

Sure, it may be super unrealistic to close on and move in to one of these homes by Thursday, but it’s still fun to imagine, right?


4412 Lakeside Drive

The Price: $9,495,000

The Neighborhood: Highland Park

The Jist: There are countless gathering places in the classic, Santa Barbara-inspired dwelling. There’s the screened-in loggia, a two-story great room, multiple outdoor entertaining areas, and a stunning downstairs wine cellar. If you think you might need a break from the in-laws, just set yourself up on the gorgeous, fully-equipped guest suite.


40 Braewood Place

The Price: $7,995,000

The Neighborhood: Bent Tree

The Jist: Situated on 1.5 acres within an exclusive gated community, the award-winning property offers guests a true, tree-lined retreat, and the opportunity to dine surrounded by wine.


4130 Cochran Chapel Road

The Price: $5,695,000

The Neighborhood: Bluffview

The Jist: The openness of the sun-soaked dining room really pushed this sprawling contemporary property over the edge, but the purple carpet-lined theater room didn’t hurt matters.


4012 Starling Drive

The Price: $6,900,000

The Neighborhood: The Hills of Kingswood

The Jist: The Frisco property actually looks like a high-end hotel (the goal of any pre-holiday house prep), right down to the back-lit patio bar. There’s also a massive infinity pool, a basketball court, a Casino Royal-inspired game room, and several solid places to consume turkey.


3505 Turtle Creek Blvd. 18c

The Price: $4,500,000

The Neighborhood: Oak Lawn

The Jist: If you’re hosting out-of-town guests, what better way to welcome them to Dallas than with a dining scenario offering downtown skyline views and a grand, antler adorned chandelier?
