    If you’re looking to have a really authentic Thanksgiving experience this year, look no further than this $2.2 million dollar Classic Colonial mansion in Plymouth, MA – the pilgrim’s landing spot in 1620.

    Built in 1906, the home at 40 Warren Avenue is looking for a buyer who wants to live in the existing home or build a new dream home on the prime oceanfront lot.

    The existing Colonial home has a palatial foyer entry with stately cathedral stairway and high ceilings. The home has an eye-popping 14 rooms, which includes 9 bedrooms, 4.5 bathrooms and 3 fireplaces spread out over 4,295 square feet.

    Outside, with views of the very same ocean the pilgrims sailed upon to reach America, you’ll find an in-ground pool, pristine backyard and a 2-bedroom Chauffeur’s cottage.

    If you lived here, you’d have a lot to be thankful for.

      Former All-Star American League left fielder now traded to the LA Dodgers

      5-bedroom, 6-bath with in-house barber shop and batting cage

      Price

      $2,990,000

      As part of one of the biggest trades in baseball history, the Los Angeles Dodgers closed a huge nine-player swap with the Boston Red Sox earlier this fall, acquiring Boston’s star left fielder Carl Crawford. Crawford, a former four-time All-Star for the Tampa Bay Rays, hit a solid .282 with Boston during his early 2012 season before being hit with news of the trade and shipped off to LA  mid-season.

      For the past few months the left-hander has been on the disabled list recovering from Tommy John elbow surgery, a very common baseball injury. He has also been busy becoming acquainted with a completely new team, new city and new home due to another common occurrence in the professional baseball world: a sudden cross-country trade. Fast-forward to the MLB’s playoff-month of October and the Los Angeles Dodgers are out of the running, now switching gears to prep for a new 2013 season. Crawford too is now ready to officially start over in California as it is confirmed he has listed his Wellesley, Massachusetts mansion for an asking price of $2.99 million.

      This 7,426 square-foot estate has New England-style charm on the exterior and a contemporary, luxury design on the interior. Custom built just a year ago in 2011, the home sits on a privately gated cul-de-sac in historic Wellesley, Massachusetts, an expensive suburb of Boston that features high-priced properties with an average listing price of $1.6 million. The ultra-private living quarters offer five bedrooms, six baths and a three car garage. The estate’s interior is professionally designed with warm, nude color schemes gracing the walls and flooring, while splashes of bright greens, reds and browns on the furnishings accentuate the space and add some spicy personality to each room. But beautiful interior décor will not go to waste – according to the listing, buyers may purchase completely furnished!

      Other ultra-luxe amenities include: a home theater, game room, an in-house barber shop, three fireplaces, an enormous master suite, and last but definitely not least, an extra large exercise room with batting cage. Like other athlete and celeb properties, this estate does not disappoint!

        $3,900,000

        When it comes to luxe living, one might instantly think of the glamorous estates or posh condos found in America’s famous cities of Los Angeles or New York. But this Thanksgiving, what kinds of fancy digs can be found in America’s original “hometown” of Plymouth, MA– the town where the pilgrims shared the very first Thanksgiving feast back in 1621?

        With a small population of just 56,468 and a ginormous amount of historic tourism, the town of Plymouth masterfully blends small town comfort with Hollywood’s entertaining appeal. The same can be said for this stunning 7-bedroom, 7- bath 6,370 sq ft Plymouth harbor waterfront manor on the market for $3,900,000.

        This grand estate can be the poster boy for a modern home with historic allure. Sitting on 2.1 acres, the home greets you with a white exterior, beautiful columns and neo classical architecture exuding a vague resemblance of our nation’s White House. It features breathtaking ocean and harbor views from almost every room with a few rooms looking out to the 20 x 40 foot inground pool and brand new 12 x 24 foot cabana. Each room features arched doorways and intricate moldings and a few spaces include French and leaded glass doors. A winding staircase takes you to the multiple floors where you can find 3 custom gas logged fireplaces, a whole house generator, a game room and library with a built-in bookcase. Additionally, the home comes with a 4-car garage and brand new 22 x 60 foot boathouse.

          Martha's Vineyard Estate, a13,327 sqft, 13 bedroom, 12.5 bath, five building compound

          Price

          $23,700,000

          So who’s looking to vacation like the president of the US of A? Better yet, who wants to call that place home?

          Presidents tend to select the most exclusive and relaxing locations for a much needed R & R. Just earlier this year, the Clintons chose a private beach estate in the East Hamptons for their week-long getaway.

          For the past three years, our now-president Barack Obama has chosen a more laid-back, country ambiance for his family vacations and has headed to Massachusetts to unwind at Blue Heron Farm, a 13,327 sqft, 13 bedroom, 12.5 bath Martha’s Vinyard estate.

          Lucky for us, recent reports revealed this compound, owned by Republican businessman William Van Devender, has now officially hit the market for $23.7 million.

          The 28.5-acre, incredibly exclusive waterfront compound sits in Chilmark on Tisbury Great Pond and is made up of five main building structures including not one, but two full-size homes – 5,118 sq ft and 3,718 sq ft.  This estate is truly a horse lover’s dream come true! Its beautifully renovated facilities include an eight-stall horse barn that was physically relocated from Pennsylvania and completely rebuilt on the property, an Olympic dressage arena, and six grass paddocks.

          Relax poolside in the property’s water view pool with hot tub or enjoy various recreational activities such a par 3 golf course, tennis court, half basketball court, horseshoes, lawn bowling or water sports on Tisbury Great Pond which opens to the great Atlantic. This home appeals to both the active and more relaxed resident, offering the best of both worlds for whatever your mood may be!

          So, these are some pretty big vacay shoes to fill, wouldn’t you say? Now that the Obama’s fave spot will no longer be available, where do you think they should vacation next?
