Bluffview Colonial Revival

It’s hard to imagine that Bluffview was originally a dairy farm with cows grazing on the rolling hills and drinking from Bachman Creek. Those lovely hilltops now feature beautiful homes instead of cows. However, when you see an estate like this 1938 Bluffview Colonial Revival at 4800 Shadywood Lane, it’s easy to imagine what life was like when the neighborhood began in 1924, because that same feeling of being out in the country prevails.

man caves

The 19,500-square-foot house at 4105 Hartlee Field Rd. in Denton has multiple man caves. All photos: Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s International Realty.

Man caves provide a place for dudes to recharge their batteries after a long day on their jobs, and a space where they can hang out with buddies, family, or alone. Many people say that men have a basic, primal, instinctual need to have a space to call their own, and the man cave fulfills that. They come in all shapes and sizes—sometimes, it’s a shed in the backyard. Other times, it’s a super posh spot in the house.

The folks over at Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s International Realty have six houses on the market now that take man caves to their highest level. These ultra luxury digs showcase man caves in all their glory, from a full basketball court with airstrip outside, to a ten-car garage created to be the ultimate relaxation space, too.

Read on to get inspiration for your man cave.
