This time of year, it's almost imperative that you have space for entertaining. For some, a party means presenting a large meal in the formal dining room, while others host by watching the big game with friends in their media room. Perhaps you want to gather everyone around the kitchen island, or have friends mingle with cocktails and canapes in your living room. And bonus points if you have somewhere in your home to put up out-of-town guests, too.

Whatever type of get-together you're looking to throw, Austin Portfolio Real Estate has several homes listed right now that fit the bill. Browse through a few of these for-sale finds, and hear from the agents themselves why each would be an entertainer's dream.
