August 15, 2012 will go down as a historic and momentous day for men everywhere. ‘Man Cave’ was officially added as a recognized “new word” to Merriam-Webster dictionary. (read about it)

The official definition reads:

a room or space (as in a basement) designed according to the taste of the man of the house to be used as his personal area for hobbies and leisure activities. First known use of Man Cave: 1992

We applaud Merriam-Webster for including this new entry as it has been a phrase that we at Coldwell Banker have loved using for years! In fact the term “man cave” is currently included in 906 listings on coldwellbanker.com.

In honor of this remarkable day, here are a few of our favorite man caves from our Pinterest boards.
