Man caves are a dwelling within the home where the men of the house can escape to when the ballpark or campgrounds just don’t cut it. These can be many shapes and sizes, as long as the space has one or more of the necessities- food and drinks, TV, and games. With most men stuck in the house due to coronavirus restrictions, man caves are being used now more than ever. Whether it is the backyard, the garage, or the classic basement location, a man cave is the perfect retreat for Dad during quarantine, especially on Father’s Day.
Check out these properties with spectacular man cave spaces listed by Bob Lucido Team, Lucido Agency, and Lucido Global!
BASEMENTS – Basements are the classic man cave space due to the fact that they are typically the center of entertainment in many homes. For added entertainment, introduce a pool table, air hockey table, foosball table, dart board, and more.

OUTDOOR KITCHENS – One way to bring the indoors outdoors is to create an outdoor grill space. Take advantage of longer evenings and warmer weather by dining alfresco! Keep it simple by introducing a chiminea or fire pit to your backyard or go all out by installing a custom grill or outdoor fireplace.
POOLS – Pools are great man caves for entertaining, relaxing, and exercising. The men in the house will have a great time making a splash, getting a few laps in, and sunbathing. Ground pools make the most picturesque backyards.
GARAGES – Put that additional space to good use! Lighting makes a big difference, as with any room in your house. Most garages do not have any windows to allow for natural light, so you will want to brighten up the space with recessed lights or think about garage doors that have glass windows already built in. For the car buffs, it’s all about the toys! Whatever purpose you intend for this space the garage offers a great blank slate to work from.

WORKSHOPS – The ultimate workshop will consist of peg boards for all of your handy materials and tools, lots of storage and cabinet space, and a nice big workman’s table or counter. Everything Dad needs to build and/or fix bird houses, furniture, anything!
KITCHENS – Because who says men can’t cook? Most men love food, so cooking for some might be a retreat in itself. Chef’s Kitchens (especially when fully stocked!) can be a great place for Dad to spend his free-time. Farm sinks, gas stove tops, double ovens, and HUGE refrigerators make up a man-cave worthy indoor kitchen.

VIEWS – What’s more relaxing than enjoying a great view from your porch or deck? Sit back and relax as you enjoy the scenery-whether it be the Baltimore City skyline or a body of water.
