Open Your Home

Make your guests feel at home with spaces that flow easily into one another. Move from appetizers at the kitchen counter to a meal made with love at the dining table, to a cup of after-dinner coffee in front of the cozy fireplace. With plenty of seating options, get-togethers of any size will feel intimate and inviting. Open plan designs let the whole family celebrate together in one room (even if you’re at the kids’ table!).

This home makes the most of a flexible layout: it’s bright and spacious, and uses consistent materials and details to make the rooms feel cohesive.

The Family that Cooks Together

Here in the South, cooking is a communal activity! The family chef longs for plenty of space to work and be surrounded by loved ones at the same time. Let everyone get in on the fun in this spacious kitchen with a large island and lots of spots to mash the potatoes, carve the turkey, or roll out a pie crust.

The other holiday tradition: football! Whether you’re watching the Thanksgiving Day game, or gathering together to cheer on your team in the Iron Bowl, it’s important to have a comfortable viewing spot for every fan in your family.

This bright, well-designed family room makes hosting a viewing party comfortable and easy. Your guests might never leave!

Play Outside

We know that a hearty turkey dinner makes everyone a little sleepy. But this is Alabama, and it’s beautiful around here! The Fall air is brisk and enticing, and that turkey has a while to roast. While you’re waiting, head outside and explore. Imagine leafy walks through the woods, an energetic trip to the park, or even just a game of catch with the kids in the backyard. Grab your scarf and go enjoy!

This lovely Crane Hill property offers 45 acres of private, peaceful woodlands and meadows, just minutes to Smith Lake. You won’t even have to leave home to make the most of the outdoors, here.

These wonderful Cullman-area properties are just a few of the places where you can create lasting memories with your loved ones. No matter where you gather, we wish you and yours a very happy Thanksgiving.
