This Father’s Day, Buy Dad a Man Cave

Home for sale with Man Caves
Inspiration for the ultimate Father’s Day gift: these homes for sale on Trulia.

For those who think Dad deserves recognition more than just one day of the year, creating a man cave is the perfect way to give back to the man who gives so much to his family. And gone are the days when Dad’s sanctuary was the leaky shed out back or the overcrowded garage.

These five homes for sale on Trulia have devoted entire floors — and even an entire structure — to the man of the house, with custom-made bars, home theaters, and games galore.


1. $2.3 million in West Lake Hills, TX (click here for more photos)

This 6,084-square-foot house was designed with classic luxury in mind, from the exposed, dark wood beams to the surround audio throughout. But downstairs, you’ll find Dad’s domain.

With ample space for a pool table and shuffleboard, this man cave features an enviable bar with sweeping views of the Hill Country. You’ll also find a state-of-the-art home theater with plush leather seating and space for a home gym.


2. $3 million in Monte Sereno, CA (click here for more photos)

Rich, carved wood, brass foot rails, glass display racks, and a flat-screen TV make the custom sports bar in this four-bed, four-and-a-half-bath home an entertainer’s paradise. Of course, there’s also a pool table to complete the package.

Step outside and you’ll find the pool and spa, fire pit, and more than enough space for a grill master to set up shop. Dad could also hop on one of the two horses allowed on the property to get away from it all for a day.


3. $1.7 million in Statesville, NC (click here for more photos)

Sitting on 17 acres of rolling countryside, this duo packs a punch. The main house, a full 3,800 square feet, features an outdoor grill/bar overlooking a luxe pool, along with an impressive wine cellar to keep the party going.

The man house next door? 5,800 square feet. Inside, you’ll find a workshop with space for eight cars, a separate RV/boat bay, a garage lift, and 20-foot ceilings. If that isn’t enough, the lucky father who lives here also gets to entertain in his Wild West-themed bar, complete with a stage, pool table, and gourmet kitchen.


4. $1.4 million in Corolla, NC (click here for more photos)

This Outer Banks beach house is the perfect spot for a summer fiesta. With Mexican tile and accents throughout the house, you’ll be inspired to sip margaritas by the pool.

But when the heat gets to be too much, take over Dad’s man cave, with separate sports bar and entertaining rooms that boast a pool table, foosball, and two flat-screen TVs.


5. $1.1 million in Louisville, KY (click here for more photos)

This elegant six-bedroom home, designed by architect Frederick Morgan, sits on 1.5 private, leafy acres. Built in 1810, the exquisite home boasts a circular driveway, 10 fireplaces, seven baths, professional-grade appliances in the gourmet kitchen, and a wood-paneled library.

The brick-walled basement with its exposed beams and wood floors is just as elegant as the rest of the home — and masculine too, with plenty of room for playing pool, two pinball machines, or lounging. Or take a few steps up to the adjoining wine room, with a high-top table, taps, and floor-to-ceiling wine racks.
