Super Bowl Showdown: Baltimore Townhouse vs. San Francisco Mansion

Whether you're a diehard fan or just watch for the commercials, you may be hosting a get-together for the Big Game this weekend. But imagine what it would be like to entertain in one of the two great homes we're featuring in our own Super Bowl Showdown!

In 49ers territory, this seven-bedroom home in the Pacific Heights section of San Francisco was designed in 1902 by renowned San Francisco architect Julius Krafft. Known as the Hellman Mansion, it has been meticulously restored, with a grand style that's evident from the moment you see the reception hall's double curved mahogany staircase. There are also seven fireplaces, a master suite with a sitting/dressing room and two master baths, and a wine cellar. To top it off, you can enjoy amazing views of Alcatraz, Angel Island and the rest of the Bay Area sights.

Meanwhile, Ravens fans would surely cheer for this unique (and amazing) Baltimore home. It's the ultimate waterfront property, sitting right on the harbor. The five-level home with six bedrooms has a theater, sauna, and elevator. But the real allure is the elite location, where you can enjoy the incredible view from the home's multiple decks -- including a 75-foot roof deck with a spa.
