As the Kansas City Chiefs play the San Francisco 49ers in Miami’s Hard Rock Stadium on Sunday, the price tag for a 30-second TV commercial during Super Bowl LIV on Fox is a reported $5.6 million. That’s up from $5.2 million last year.
For just under that amount, you can own a castle located in Chiefs’ territory, a four-level townhouse in the 49ers’ hometown or a Miami Beach condo in the sky.

Kansas City, Missouri

Square footage: 15,060
Price per square foot: $365

This lakefront estate in Kansas City, Missouri, is just a 30-minute drive to the Chief’s Arrowhead Stadium.
“It took approximately three years to build” and was finished in 1993, Welch tells CNBC Make It. “Everything in the home was custom… It took 14 months of non-stop stone laying to get the job done.”
The great room has 18-foot ceilings, a wood-burning fireplace and views of nearby Lake Weatherby.
“The owner was infatuated with King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table,” says Welch. “So he had an ongoing theme of Camelot,” which is what the Castle is called.
A hand-painted mural of Lancelot and his queen adorns the walls of the dining room.
The room also has stained glass windows and a 200-year-old, hand-carved fireplace mantle imported from England.
The homeowner was also an extensive wine collector and the cellar can hold up to 4,000 bottles.
The master bedroom has a secret passageway that leads to the home’s greenhouse on a lower level, says Welch.

The home’s great room has cathedral ceilings, a floor-to-ceiling soapstone fireplace and views of downtown.
Just off the kitchen is a modern steel-rod staircase.
The home also has an elevator.
Accordion glass doors off the kitchen open into the patio and garden.
