Single men have quite distinctive tastes when it comes to their humble abodes. Around 95% of them claim they are not particularly interested in having a spacious kitchen. After all, take out is a synonym for bachelorhood. Most of them simply want a crib that will impress and we all have different standpoints when it comes to what imposing and glamorous really means.

What makes a home manly? They say that the first task you need to commit to is acquiring a large velvet sofa for those laid back afternoons. Refrigerators filled with beer, gyms in almost every room, and a home theater with a huge flat-screen TV are also mandatory. However, there's more to a bachelor's den than meets the eye. For starters, the choice of color, textures, and materials can make the difference between a luxurious condo and a real fortress of solitude, a temple dedicated to testosterone.

Your bachelor pad says more about you than you might think. It is your unofficial business card, a man cave where you can seek balance. Forget about those complicated household items women often can't live without. An epic bachelor pad is all about comfort and intimacy. There are no rules to follow. It can be anything you want it to be, as long as you are proud of your creation. Like the Big Lebowski once said, sometimes all it needs is a rug to tie the room together.

1 Crespi-Hicks Estate, Dallas

The honorable distinction of the most coveted bachelor pad goes to the Crespi-Hicks Estate in Dallas, Texas. Located in the Mayflower Estates neighborhood, the most prestigious area in Dallas, the 25 acres of land are fenced by wrought iron gates. There are a gazillion amenities every bachelor dreams of inside the 42,500 square feet of living space spread throughout a five-story main house, a three-story pool house, and a couple of two-story guest houses. Its most lavish furnishings are the 19th century Italian walnut and burl paneled library, a mirrored art-deco bar room, while the main kitchen features 10th century Dutch Delft manganese tiles. The opulent trophy home is considered one of the finest estate homes in America. The pool house boasts an outdoor livingroom and kitchen, as well as a game room and a home theater that occupies an entire floor. There are also many outdoor amenities, like a tennis court, greenhouses, tree house, and several gardens. What more could a bachelor ask for? The Crespi-Hicks estate was commissioned by Italian count Pio Crespi in the 1940's and is currently owned by Thomas and Cinda Hicks, who listed the property for $135 million in 2013.
