Lots of homes listed on the MLS are described as 'great for entertaining,' but few are as primed for weddings, bar mitzvahs, or quinceañeras (or some other event in which lavender tablecloths would be appropriate) as this 7,400-square-foot Kenwood house. The second floor has a large ballroom with a built-in DJ booth and bar. The master bath looks party-size as well. The garage fits four cars; the basement has three bedrooms and an entertainment room; and the house has eight fireplaces (one of which has the owner's big, brass initials on the hearth). And how's this for price appreciation? The place last sold for $73,000 in 1999, and it's currently listed for $1.65 million (that's a more than 2,000-percent increase).
