    The Super Bowl marks the end zone of a sport season that keeps Americans spending quality time indoors for countless consecutive Sundays. After all, what better place to enjoy the enduring pleasures in life—flat screens, finger foods and cushy sofas—than the comforting confines of home sweet home? In New York City's northern suburbs, it's also a time when the countless creative homeowners who have crafted bespoke lairs for undisturbed sports-viewing sanctum see their efforts culminate. Here are some of the best spaces from our listings to gather the guys (and gals), indulge in your last buckets of wings before kicking off the pre-summer diets and workouts and tune into the big game:

    BEDFORD CORNERS | 2 Hollow Ridge Road | $4,950,000
    Midtown night club, or the winning team's lounge? It's easy to be green with envy over this swanky subterranean space, with sleek furnishings, bottle self-service and seductive portraits of Miss Norma Jeane Mortenson (who married playwright Arthur Miller at his manager's Waccabuc home in 1956). This versatile hideaway proves just as perfect for the remaining months of hockey season. See more

    WACCABUC | 19 Rockshelter Road | $3,995,000
    For a sports-centric custom home boasting its own baseball diamond and indoor New York Rangers-themed roller hockey rink (complete with locker room and kitchen facilities), a lower level fan cave is practically expected. This woodsy cavern doesn't disappoint, with a welcoming bar, millwork, billiards and framed ephemera capturing the quintessential Big Game mood. See more

    RYE | 3 Club Road | $11,850,000
    Don't believe the ads for every supermarket in America: this great room is the real "big game headquarters." In the 13,000+ square foot manse of a scenic estate neighboring Rye's prestigious Apawamis Club, this sun-drenched space has everything you could possibly need for indoor entertaining: a full bar, billards, ping-pong, a card table and ample plush seating. Even guests at your gathering who couldn't care less about football the other 364 days a year will have just as good a time. (Bonus points for our new favorite accent, "Bon Appetit Bear"). See more

    SCARSDALE | 30 Morris Lane | $9,250,000
    An "open plan" space to accommodate gatherings large and small, set in a majestic Brick Georgian Colonial on 1.82 private acres of Scarsdale's prestigious Murray Hill. The staircase leads to the main level, providing a quick path to guest greetings and food deliveries. See more

    ARMONK | 3 Vincent Lane | $4,490,000
    With kitchen facilities, an oversized fireplace and a downstairs climate-controlled wine cellar nearby, the recreation room in this stone-and-slate Armonk manor is hard to beat. We're thinking pork buns, satay and local IPA for this classy Super Bowl party—a trip to Armonk's two-story DeCicco's is certainly in order. See more
