By LAUREN RIEFFLIN
It may sound like a football fan’s dream to attend a Super Bowl game live and in person. But really? Indianapolis? In February?
Unless you are a rabid fan of the New York Giants or the New England Patriots — the conference champs who will square off in Super Bowl XLVI on Sunday, Feb. 5, at Lucas Oil Stadium — there really are better places to watch the National Football League title game … like from a tricked-out, beer-tapped man cave!
Homes with "man caves" — or rooms with giant TVs, sports memorabilia, wet bars, and comfy couches — have grown in popularity over the years and have become the go-to place on big game days. Or, dare we say, big movie nights?
Just in time for the big game, we found some homes for sale with man caves that offer the ultimate place to watch the tube on Super Bowl Sunday. So, sit back, pop a cold one and pass the chips and dip while we tour a few man-cave beauties.

Cars, kitchen, couches, and TVs — what more could a guy ask for?

Gentlemen, start your drooling. Located in Washington, Utah, this 24,500-square-foot home sports the ultimate man cave amenity: Its very own sports pub. Four ceiling-mounted TVs offer a 360-degree view of the game, and the hardwood floors, full bar, bar tables, and a pool table complete the pub ambiance. As an added bonus, there’s also a two-lane bowling alley, swimming pool, gym, theater, spa, and arcade room for alternative means of entertainment during halftime. This resort-like estate is currently listed on the Washington real estate market for about $7 million.
For Sale: $3 million
Talk about an architectural tongue-twister: Here’s a "French colonial constructed of vintage old Chicago brick with an English Pub-inspired man cave in Texas." That’s a mouthful, but believe it or not, this home really does exist and is listed on The Woodlands real estate market with a recently reduced asking price of about $3 million. The five-bedroom, seven-bathroom home is Super Bowl-ready with a "one-of-a-kind man room" that includes a poker table, full bar, kitchen, pool table, dartboard and more.
For Sale: $3.7 million
With its marble columns, wrought-iron chandelier and painted ceiling, the man cave in this ornate Dallas estate takes you back to the Renaissance. A mounted, flat-screen TV, dartboard, pool table and arcade games, however, make it an elegant and appropriate destination for hosting Super Bowl festivities. Recently taking a $300,000 price cut, this four-bedroom, six-bathroom home is currently listed on the Highland Park real estate market for about $3.7 million.
For Sale: $30 million
Noted as "one of the most significant hunting and equestrian estates" — not only on the Cambridge real estate market but in the entire United States — this property called Tudor Farms is sprawling: 6,250 acres and an 11-bedroom, 10.5-bathroom lodge-style home. Super Bowl Sunday festivities wouldn’t be lacking for a proper space here, either. Among the 14,000 square feet of living space is a cabin-like man cave with log columns, corner-mounted TV, pool table, shuffleboard and bar.
For Sale: $8 million
Outfitted with white floors, ceilings and walls, there’s no place for messy tailgate appetizers at this gleaming property.

Additional amenities include a wine cellar with tasting area, professional-grade gym, sauna, elevator, and outdoor entertaining area with a 74-foot lap pool, spa, and a rooftop deck.

If a mid-game dip is more your style, then a home with poolside TVs and full bar may be your best Super Bowl bet.
