Kansas City castle vs. San Fran mega-home: Which one wins?

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.

Take a look:

Kansas City, Missouri

ReeceNichols Real Estate

Listing price: $5.5 million
Square footage: 15,060
Price per square foot: $365
Details: five bedrooms, seven full baths and three half baths

This lakefront estate in Kansas City, Missouri, is just a 30-minute drive to the Chief's Arrowhead Stadium.

It was inspired by a trip the late homeowner and his wife took to Ashford Castle in Ireland, says ReeceNichols listing agent Tina Welch.

"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.
