There are many things that help to make a house a home, including the memories we make as we entertain ourselves each day. Perhaps the best part about home entertainment is that no two houses feature the exact same options for passing the time. This season, we’re exploring just a handful of the greatest home theaters, game rooms, and other unique options that are bringing homeowners comfort and enjoyment! We are pleased to present this curated selection of luxury entertainment from Howard Hanna’s Homes of Distinction program.
Situated on a serene 2.1-acre property, this five-bedroom modern ranch offers a delightful setup for movie lovers and gamers alike. The main level itself features a lovely kitchen, a luxurious master suite, and a detailed studio space that’s perfect as a crafting room or home office. The lower level, however, is where the fun takes place! A fully appointed wet bar, a wine cellar, a game room, and a home theater ensure that no one in this household will struggle with boredom. While an outdoor multi-sport court is also available for use, you may find yourself struggling to drag yourself away from the surround speakers and high-speed fiber optics of the ready-to-use indoor entertainment space!
Welcome to Laurel Bluff, a beautifully renovated, contemporary home set amid two private acres of natural landscaping. Multi-level vaulted ceilings and tall windows that overlook stunning water and nature views flood the interior with natural light. Once you’ve taken in the views, you’ll surely want to retire to the lower level of the home, which functions as an office, a library, and a multimedia room with a bar and a wood-burning stove. Here, the luxury “entertainment” space embraces the slower side of life. You could settle into a comfortable chair and enjoy your favorite book or movie, head out to the expansive private pier, or relax by the in-ground pool with hot tub.
Do you consider a day at the movies a day well spent? This magnificent, five-bedroom home is the perfect spot for people who just want to sit back with popcorn, candy, and their favorite movies. The lavish home also boasts a great room, a full chef’s kitchen a playroom, a study, and a sumptuous master suite. Still, while it offers numerous sophisticated spaces and entertainment options, it’s the cutting-edge theater in the home’s lower level that is sure to call to cinema fans. A stylish wet bar and a wine room can also be found on this level, ensuring that any movie night is well supplied with the essentials.
Situated on over seven acres of land, this exquisite residence is designed specifically with luxury living and entertainment in mind. The gracious layout includes a grand entry hall, an open floor plan with ample natural light, a chef’s kitchen with commercial-grade appliances, five bedroom suites, and a private veranda overlooking the salt water pool and fully stocked pond. Once you have explored the extravagant main level, a posh set-up awaits on the lower level, where a full bar and a second kitchen accompany a rec room, a billiard room, and a media room, with French doors opening to a patio by the pond. This home makes it easy to pass the time in style!
Quality design and craftsmanship are just the beginning in this custom-built, six-bedroom home. It has all of the luxurious appointments one could ask for, from gorgeous hardwood floors to a generously sized kitchen with Amish-built cabinetry, a striking stone fireplace, and much more. While the siren call of the fireside may be difficult to resist, this home also offers a lower-level entertainers’ delight that includes a full-size bar, a full kitchen, an arcade, a soundproof music room, and a movie theater with concession stand! A tunnel leads out to the private back yard featuring an in-ground pool, a covered outdoor lounge with grilling kitchen, and a fireplace.
You’ll find it difficult ever to leave this magnificent, custom built, five-bedroom home. There’s so much to appreciate in this house, from the two-story foyer that welcomes all, to the expansive kitchen and breakfast bar, to the patio with fireplace and built-in grill, to the generous mudroom and laundry areas. While these high-end essentials will leave no one wanting, the lower level of this luxurious home comes complete with a rec room, a full kitchen with bar seating, an exercise room, an office, and a full bath. Needless to say, you can pass the time any way you see fit in this space – no trips upstairs required!
This spectacular, semi-oceanfront, 8-bedroom home offers year-round enjoyment and ensures that you won’t have to choose between top-of-the-line entertainment and the beach-house life you’ve always dreamed of, with unobstructed ocean views and the soothing sounds of never-ending waves. Of course, a rainy day can quickly turn a beach oasis into a gray and dreary sight. On those days, you’ll easily be able to entertain yourself at home, perhaps watching a movie in the indoor theater or playing a game of pool. Either way, you’ll enjoy yourself until those ocean views are ready for you once more. It’s truly the best of both worlds.
