8 Homes You Could Gift

holiday gift ideas moab ut
These homes for sale on Trulia would be the perfect present for those who’ve been very, very good this year.

Looking for the perfect gift can feel like the quest for a perfect house. Each purchase, after all, is largely centered on matching one’s personality and hobbies. An outdoorsy type wouldn’t thrive in a super-industrial city loft that’s hours away from hiking trails, while a social butterfly would be miserable in a tiny home far off the grid.

With that in mind, we’re taking a look at houses from Dallas, TX, to Atlanta, GA, that are perfectly matched for a special someone. Whether it’s a property that boasts a greenhouse for year-round gardening or a custom kitchen fit for budding chefs, these properties include thoughtful features that would thrill anyone on Santa’s “nice” list.

For the die-hard sports fan: $389,000, 304 Presidential Blvd., Hodgenville, KY 42748

If you ever wished your TV cable package offered only sports channels, this custom-built 4,000-square-foot home is your happy place. Why? The six-bedroom, four-bath home offers plenty of living space. But this unassuming home also includes the ultimate man cave, featuring a full-size wet bar with a flat-screen television at the optimal viewing angle. It’s like having your own private pub (where everybody will definitely know your name). Cheers!

For the gardener: $525,000, 1611 Griffith Point Road, Nordland, WA 98358

Cultivating your green thumb is a breeze at this picturesque two-bedroom, two-bath home. Nestled on the bank of a peaceful bay, the property includes multiple gardens and a greenhouse that extends the planting season to year-round. The verdant view can also be enjoyed from the private deck that’s just off the master bedroom.

For the artist: $379,500, 4531 Capitol Ave., Dallas, TX 75204

Getting in touch with your creative side is as easy as walking to your own 1,000-square-foot art studio for pottery, painting, or even yoga practice. This inspiring bonus space complements the overall artsy feel of the three-bedroom, two-and-a-half-bath home. Whimsical color choices, distinctive mosaics, and fun hand-painted details give this property plenty of character.

For the kid at heart: $849,900, 8321 Stoney Creek Drive, South Lyon, MI 48178

A family would never, ever be bored in this spacious four-bedroom suburban home, which was built with fun in mind. Kids will love the playroom that includes a built-in playhouse complete with chalkboard walls, but everyone can enjoy the awesome theater and the arcade room. Need a more grown-up time out? Head to the basement bar or go to your own boat slip at nearby Hidden Lake Marina.

For the wine connoisseur: $495,000, 1637 Sable Drive, Roseburg, OR 97470

If you’re the type who knows how to pair a wine with any meal (including pizza), you’ll fall in love with this 8.2-acre property that comes with the ultimate oenophile amenity: an on-site hobby vineyard featuring nebbiolo, sangiovese, and pinot noir grapes.

The backyard functions as a soundscape, delivering the soothing sounds of nearby Pack Creek to the northern patios. If you need to clear your mind, simply head to the nature trail that leads away from the home for a private retreat.

For the bookworm: $899,000, 1540 Powell Road, Powell, OH 43065

For those whose ideal escape is found in the pages of a great novel comes this stately all-brick Georgian home.
