Design | The Manliest Homes in America

Sleek lines; rustic elements; a noticeable lack of throw pillows- they’re all signs that you’re in a guy’s home. And while you might expect a manly home to be defined by the number of beers in the fridge and toilet seats left up, there are actually a lot of ways to make your home manly and inviting. Men’s Health recently found the 25 Manliest Homes in America and I thought I’d share some with you today.

This rustic pad was formerly home to comedian Dan Whitney, otherwise known as Larry the Cable Guy. The property boasts indoor and outdoor movie theaters, a stocked fishing pond, gym, and safe room, but the real man cave is the indoor game room, pictured above.


Designer Brad Norris of Norris Architecture blended the design of this home with its wooded surroundings and only used real elements. “No fake stuff,” says Norris. “Real stone, real wood, real structure.” Real cool.


This manly bar comes thanks to the crew from the DIY Network. What guy doesn’t want to pretend he’s a cowboy?


Car lovers rev your engines- this is one awesome garage. This beauty fits 12 cars—eight on the floor level and another four up on built-in lifts. The space also has its own guest quarters, exercise room and wine cellar. Oh yeah, and there’s also an estate attached.


Wouldn’t have to ask me twice to move in here. This Squaw Valley Ski Resort (available for rent via community marketplace Airbnb), includes a saltwater hot tub, 15-person sauna, 6-foot fireplace, and a 63-inch flat-screen- man heaven.

Which home do you like best? Let me know in the comments. Have a great weekend everyone.
