Cellar Showcase // Classic Wine Room - Home Counties UK
Here we bring you a Cellar Maison Showcase on a recent installation to a lovely residence in the Home Counties.
From our signature range of bespoke cellars, the style is what we call a Classic Wine Room. This means it is a walk-in space with access from the front wall of the room. In this Wine Room, instead of just a door, the viewing area of the cellar has been expanded to take up the whole width of the room. This makes it an exceptionally beautiful and significant feature of the home – With the crucial capability of storing the owners’ wine collection in absolutely optimal conditions in our specialised climate controlled environment, standard to all our Wine Cellars, Wine Walls and Pods.
The front viewing wall of the cellar has been completed with our unique frameless glass, custom made and using antique brass for the fittings and handles, in keeping with the classic features of the home and the rest of the cellar.
The climate control system mentioned above, utilises cutting edge wine storage technology exclusively used by Cellar Maison in this way. Our clients’ collection of wine, including reds, whites and Champagne, is kept here in genuine cellar conditions (as opposed to wine refrigeration units which are by comparison, just for immediate cooling of white wines and Champagne before drinking.)
Capacity of this particular Wine Room, is approximately 1200 bottles. The home owners are able to view their wine, enjoy the overall aesthetic, select bottles for drinking whilst entertaining friends. They can utilise the inner space fully with the built-in bar area that holds their beautiful decanters and selected glasses ready for use. There is also a useful drawer built in to keep their wine accessories and tasting notes to hand.
Aesthetics of the space have been designed to fit the classic pleasures of a traditional wine cellar. Integrated LED lighting warmly showcases the wine and is enhanced by the clever use of an antique mirror in the rear panel, reflecting the treasures within the bar space.
Along the side of the cellar is a feature wall that has been crafted in reclaimed oak wine barrel tile cladding. The cellar itself is in dark oak hardwood, again, perfectly in keeping with a traditional cellar – but with the great advantage of modern, safe wine storage technology.
A final touch to this lovely space, is the traditional library style ladder can run along the front of the cellar to allow access to the top levels. It is fashioned in solid oak and offers a certain charm to the experience of being in ones very own cellar.
For more information about this cellar, or to discuss a space of your own – whether residential or commercial, please contact us here. We are more than happy to talk about the options and also work closely with designers, property developers and architects as well as independently with our clients.
