Tough Guys: So What Do We Do With the Man Cave Apres the Superbowl?

Share News:

I dreamed I watched the Superbowl surrounded in Cowboy blue… and the 49ers won!

Funny thing, the folks from Estately.com sent me some cool man caves last week and only one was from a home up north. Not surprising, Texas is home to the most man-caved homes anywhere. Up north I guess you just outfit a basement with a rug, a few easy chairs and a table to hold the brewskis all facing a giant screen TV. But no, here in Texas (and California-Florida too) we have huge man caves with bowling alleys, bars, games, pool tables, spas, private bathrooms even massage rooms. There is a great man cave on Meaders not too far from Daria Drive that has a great man cave complete with a bowling alley in the home’s basement. I’d venture to say in Dallas, Tom Hick’s man cave tops them all, but I bet Gerald Ford and Kelcy Warren have a pretty nifty ones, too.

From our Monday Morning Millionaire, a man-cave with style:

This man cave is at Possum Kingdom Lake in Graford, Texas, not too shabby, TV’s a little small…$2,750,000

The country-style man cave in this Graford, Tex. home features a relaxed setting where you can kick back with a beer and admire the cool guitars on the wall in between plays.

Now I would have loved to watched the half-time show – -and blackout — from this bubbling hot tub grotto in a $12 million plus home but would have had to fly to Cali:

Ever wondered what to do with the train set stuck in the attic? Put it up high in the man cave- Rancho Santa Fe! (All men love to be little conductors, right?) $8,195,000

This is what I mean about the north: nice room, but looks like a jazzed up basement in Chicago. Where’s the beef? Oh wait: this is in a $1.7 Lake Shore Drive condo!
