A Decked-Out Game Room Provides Hours of Fun for the Whole Family


In the same way that the kitchen is a busy space designed to bring people together, the game room is also a place for family fun. Modern game rooms are constructed to fit pool tables, video consoles, card tables, and large-scale table sports, such as foosball, table tennis, and air hockey. Here are five game rooms tailor-made for friendly family competition.

4412 Lakeside

The game room inside the Highland Park estate at 4412 Lakeside Drive has an energetic, fun-loving atmosphere. This game room features a fireplace, abundant natural light, and space for table tennis, video games, a poker table, and more.

6207 Rex

The game room inside the four-bedroom estate at 6207 Rex Drive is made for billiards aficionados. There’s room for a champion-size table and accessories, plus plenty of space for old-school video games and sports memorabilia.

6130 Desco

The nearly 7,000-square-foot home at 6130 Desco Drive features a beautifully designed game room that’s large enough for a billiards table, sofa, high-top table and chairs, and jukebox.

4612 Isabella

4612 Isabella Lane is made for entertaining indoors and out. While you’ll find a sport court and zip line in the backyard, the second floor features an expansive game room that can accommodate a pool table, a foosball table, video games, and seating, and there’s still plenty of space left over for more.

5139 Seneca

The regally designed game room at 5139 Seneca Drive is just as exquisite as the rest of the 16,000-square-foot Bluffview estate. The space has room for a billiards table and abundant seating. The parquet wood floors, columns, and bronze flair add a touch of sophistication.
