Sitting around the living room with a belly full of turkey and pie, I am dreaming of homes with larger dining rooms than ours. These days, homes are designed for entertaining. Open floor plans allow you to chat with guests while preparing meals. French doors and spacious decks bring the party outdoors. Fire pits keep the conversation going into the wee hours of the night.

There are currently several homes available in Sonoma County that emphasize a distinctly Californian indoor/outdoor design with places of entertaining guests under a lamp or under the stars. Estates that have all of the most desirable amenities are going for $1 million and up, but there several spots selling for around the median home price of around $650,000, with a few great features perfect for entertaining guests.
