Have you ever wondered where the Philadelphia Eagles are nesting when they’re not scoring touchdowns? Over the past decade, Henck Design has outfitted the family homes of several players, giving them the sanctuaries they need to rejuvenate when off the field. Let’s take a victory lap and look back at our past collaborations with some of our favorite Eagles.
Most recently, Christina Henck and her team transformed the 10,000-square-foot Haverford home of Eagles defensive end and Super Bowl LII champion, Brandon Graham. The theme for this Main Line Professional Athlete Home Redesign was laid-back luxury, with a perfect fusion of modern and classic elements.
Throughout the home, Henck kept to a light neutral color palette and layered materials like marble, light woods, and antique mirrored finishes to create an elegant transitional feel.
Notable design features include the sprawling double-island in the chef’s kitchen, featuring both Calcutta Marble and butcher block countertops, the Venetian plaster ceiling in the dining room, and the bespoke cream sectional opposite a grand Italian fireplace in the living room.
This Super Bowl champion needed an epic man cave, and the HD team dedicated Graham’s entire lower floor to crafting just that. The four-part room, which boasts a full bar, kitchen, and projector screen, is designed to comfortably host 30+ or so guests.

In 2021, Henck Design transformed the Old City, Philadelphia home of Eagles Safety Rodney McLeod into a luxurious home reminiscent of a high-end hotel. The Henck Design team added character to the new construction home with custom millwork on both the living room and dining room walls, as well as the addition of a floor-to-ceiling limestone fireplace in the great room.
The home boasts a light and neutral color palette throughout, which is glamorized by the inclusion of reflective materials like antique mirror, glass, and brushed gold.
In the lower level of McLeod’s 5,200-square-foot home, the designers departed from the airy neutral style of the top floor to give the well known sports professional the man cave he deserves.
Last but definitely not least is Henck Design’s 2018 redesign of Eagles safety Malcolm Jenkins’ 6900-square-foot home in Northern Liberties. In order to honor the Jenkins’ previous home in New Orleans, the HD team created a home with distinct French influence and a color palette inspired by Mardi Gras.
The casual dining room ties into the family room with dusty purple tones that contrast nicely with the dark wood tones Henck selected for flooring, stair treads, the french oak dining table and more. The contemporary crystal chandelier keeps the space feeling modern alongside the mix of eclectic and clean elements.
The primary suite also has dusty purple tones that subtly support modern black large format tile, a large scale tufted contemporary bed and other bold items curated by Henck Design. The Northern Liberties home near Fishtown.
