Rough stone walls and barrel-vaulted ceilings create a wine cellar with warmth and old-world charm. This European-style home rests on 4.5 acres in a serene, private enclave in California's Lake Arrowhead community.
All of the wine experience spaces are lined with either stone or stucco and have an antique brick floor. The tasting room is separate from the chilled wine so that the homeowners could entertain friends comfortably. A built-in bar area made from white oak has iron hardware.
Rustic, Barn-Like Carriage House Provides Car Storage
This 5,000-square-foot carriage house — mainly dedicated to car storage and display — was designed to evoke the feel of a 150-year-old barn. The stone walls were erected with some of the original stones taken from walls built by farmers who previously owned the property.
Spacious Wine Cellar With Rustic Stone Ceiling and Walls
This rustic wine cellar features all-over gray stone, covering the ceiling and walls. Several wooden wine shelves hang on the walls, while a stone sink and set of drawers offer room for prep and cleanup. Glass pendant lights hang above a pub-style table and chairs, creating the perfect spot for wine tasting.
The circular wine room below the rear turret of this Tudor-style home is filled with custom built-in wine racks and stone shelves. Natural stone is used on most of the walls in the space, and reclaimed brick covers all of the floors. The entire space is "reclaimed" since it replaces what was once a garage and basement. Very little heat (or cooling) is used to make these subterranean spaces function properly.
This may be a hard-working laundry room, but it feels anything like one. HGTV fan MrPeabody prevents a pure "utility" atmosphere by integrating the home's rustic architecture, wooden ceiling beams and warm pendant lighting.
