With the Super Bowl this Sunday, the Olympics fast approaching, and awards season still in progress, there’s no better time to purchase a home with a life-sized screen. Below, three Chicago properties with huge, amenity-rich home theaters that fit the bill.
A jukebox is the perfect complement to the victory dance you'll do after watching your team win in this cozy home theater.
145 Evergreen Lane: This Winnetka home not only has a theater—complete with projector for life-sized Super Bowl viewing—it has an entire party space to host guests for Sunday’s game. The downstairs rec room features a full kitchen and dining area, wine cellar, and playroom in addition to the theater space. $2.495 million. Contact Koenig & Strey listing agent Sherry Molitor at firstname.lastname@example.org or Joanne Keller at email@example.com for more information.
A fireplace renders 124 W. Oak Street's modern home theater a bit homey.
124 W. Oak Street: Occupying 4,000 square feet in the Gold Coast, this listing disproves the idea that one has to go to the suburbs for space. Outfitted with state-of-the-art sound systems, iPod docks for central audio, and more, the media room is the perfect, modern spot—but a fireplace keeps it just cozy enough. $1.739 million. Contact Coldwell Banker listing agent Jennifer Ames at 312-266-7000 or firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Classic wood finishes and neutral hues mean lots of options when it comes to team colors.
458 Lakeside Terrace: The most envy-inducing home theater is this Glencoe home’s, and it’s just one of many amenities: the property also features a gym, library, elevator, and rooftop deck. The wood-paneled theater is like a mini man cave—especially with the game on—and has plush carpeting and plenty of room for comfortable couches. $3.95 million. Contact Baird & Warner at 888-661-1176 for more information.
