Home Theaters to Watch Football’s Biggest Game
After an 18-week regular season and some epic playoff matchups, the Big Game is finally here. From coast to coast, Americans will gather with family and friends this Sunday to watch the NFC champion Philadelphia Eagles face off against the AFC champion Kansas City Chiefs in the final NFL game of the 2022-23 season.
In what is most certainly an unofficial national holiday, parties will be hosted, chicken wings consumed, and libations enjoyed on the most celebrated Sunday of the year. But perhaps even more important than which franchise quarterback will lead their team to victory is where you’ll view the historic match up.
We’ve picked out a few residences currently on the market that feature home theaters, essential for viewing football’s biggest game of the year.
4500 Downers Drive, Downers Grove – $3,250,000
The lower level of this grandiose 10,759-square-foot estate is an entertainment haven, and the piece de resistance is a theater complete with a custom ceiling inspired by the Titanic. Eleven reclining leather seats face a large projection screen where your guests won’t miss a single play of the game.
The room’s fireplace will ensure viewers are comfortable and cozy while taking in the not-to-be-missed commercials. Serve up drinks and snacks at the Irish-themed bar adjacent to the theater or enjoy additional viewing space in the attached lounge.
For those who don’t know a field goal from a punt, an arcade alley, ping-pong table, and golf simulator provide an excellent alternative.
4 East Elm Street, #7S, Chicago – $2,350,000
Entertaining is a breeze in this 3,486-square-foot Gold Coast condominium that boasts private elevator access to a half floor in one of Chicago’s toniest neighborhoods.
The open floor plan offers ample space for hosting a large viewing party, but the floor-to-ceiling windows that surround the space will have your guests torn between watching the game or the surrounding urban landscape.
If you’re looking to blow out your party for the Big Game, book the building’s private theater and club lounge for even more space. Just steps from some of the city’s best dining options, you’ll have no trouble finding the perfect venue to cater your fete.
1856 West Huron Street, Chicago – $1,699,900
Every floor of this 4,300 square-foot East Village home is strikingly appointed with a modern aesthetic, including the lower level with a media room that features a high-definition projection home theater system with a 144-inch screen.
While there is a full wet bar and wine fridge within the theater room, you and your guests may want to use the timeouts to run upstairs and choose a vintage from the temperature-controlled, floor-to-ceiling glass-enclosed 1,200-bottle wine cellar.
Occupying an entire wall of the kitchen, this show-stopping (or should we say game-stopping) masterpiece will have your guests more enthralled than the Big Game.
2241 West Wellington Avenue, Chicago – $1,299,000
Enjoy the perks of the city as well as a quaint neighborhood vibe in this newer construction home on a tree-lined street in West Lakeview.
This extra-wide 3,826-square-foot home has plenty of space for entertaining, but the lower level has a luxury theater room with projector, surround sound system, and seats that will leave even the most intense viewers relaxed during the gridiron championship.
An adjacent recreational space allows you to fit more football fans, and a full wet bar provides an easy space for snacks and refreshments.
27604 North South Turf Hill Drive, Mundelein – $859,900
Once the Lombardi Trophy is awarded, many NFL players spend the off-season on the links, and you’ll have that option too in this opulent 5,190-square-foot home located on Steeple Chase Golf Course.
But for now, catch the game in this residence’s incredible theater room on the main floor, which features an Alexa-activated 120-inch drop down screen and projector, but also has a 60-inch Samsung TV and two 36-inch LG TVs to view all your favorite teams when the season is in full swing.
Pocket doors separate the theater from the family room and the room’s walls and ceiling are insulated and covered with noise-deadening panels to protect the other rooms from the surround sound.
