The holidays bring family and friends back home for gatherings and good times.

Imagine a house so big it could host a wedding reception, and you have the Great Room inside this Ipswich, Massachusetts, home for sale.

The history of the home is interesting, as it's a beautiful custom colonial built in 1966.  As time went on, the owner, fond of entertaining, added a large extension, including a massive two-story room with a parquet floor, floor to ceiling fieldstone fireplace, spiral staircase, and upstairs balcony.

The entertaining spills out into a sun room with windows on three sides,  a hot tub on once side of the room, and a pub-style full bar on the other side.

This part of the house was meant for entertaining larger gatherings for either a very large family, or a vast number of friends and colleagues.

From there, walk out to the pool area with a spiral slide and pool house with a kitchenette, den, and 3/4 bathroom for the ultimate in summer entertaining.

The four car heated garage is a car lover's dream, with a two-bedroom apartment above the garage.  Additionally, there's a three-car detached garage with more work space for contractors or car enthusiasts.

The master bedroom has a full bathroom, walk-in closet and dressing area.  The music room has a fireplace with elevated staging housing a baby grand piano, or a small music ensemble.

The 4+ acre property could be a subdivided lot, or you can enjoy the tranquility of this beautiful piece of real estate nestled on a quiet road not far from downtown.
