With a heavy emphasis placed on relaxation, the lower level of the house offers a resort-style destination that indulges the senses. Recessed lighting between deep set coffered ceiling panels and gorgeous oak floors act as a reminder of the sheer brilliance of this trophy home where traditional architecture is expressed in a contemporary style inclusive of all modern conveniences.
Captivate friends with the latest box office release or settle down to a family movie after dinner, the home theatre with eight sumptuous leather reclining chairs will satiate the body while a top-of-the-line GrandView curved projection screen fully immerses the audience and provides a high-definition viewing experience. Dark oak millwork and panelled walls with deep fabric inserts set the perfect tone while built-in speakers create cinema-quality surround sound. A wet bar resplendent with ruby red Caesarstone countertops and bar seating puts the fun into functional complete with a temperature-controlled wine fridge for a dedicated in-house beverage service.
Upping the ante in the competitive stakes is an expansive recreation room large enough for full-sized billiards and table tennis tables. Challenge family members and friends to a lively game while refreshments are on hand in the fully-equipped wet bar (one of five found throughout the house) complete with two drinks coolers, marble counters and bespoke woodwork. When the games are over, take a cooling drink and snacks outside to an entertainment-ready patio allowing for jovial conversation to continue about the points won and lost.
No home is complete without a wine cellar and this bespoke vault will captivate even the most knowledgeable oenophile with its precise detailing that combines sophistication with stature. Paying homage to the home’s European roots, Spanish limestone is decadently displayed around the outside of the room bordering the glass-fronted exterior as well as throughout the ceiling and floor. Beautiful custom millwork lines an interior that comfortably holds more than 400 bottles – perfectly stored in a humidity and temperature-controlled atmosphere – while a display table showcases prestigious vintages that will be the envy of collectors.
