5 LUXURY HOMES WITH EXQUISITE WINE CELLARS
For all connoisseurs of the fermented grape, the ultimate addition to a luxury home is an in-house wine cellar. As you would expect, there are a variety of different aspects to consider when building a wine cellar, and many are more than just aesthetic…
The team here at Lusso Homes walks you through five fabulous examples from across the pond:
1. 18 FRICK DRIVE, ALPINE, NEW JERSEY
Our first example is a classic wine cellar guarded by a solid mahogany double door. With dark tile under foot and custom ceiling plastering overhead, this cellar has a truly traditional feel. But, don’t be fooled. There’s much more to this 4000 bottle, dual zone, temperature controlled vault. Complete with a tamper-proof, biometric entry security system programmed to accept the fingerprint of selected individuals, numeric pass codes and a bottle authentication system, some high-end smart home technology is on show here.
2. UNIT 210, 321 OCEAN, MIAMI BEACH, FLORIDA
Style meets functionality in this 50 square foot, refrigerated wine store with a 440 bottle capacity. Offering a more open plan, transparent feel, this climate-controlled room features a cool, insulated glass enclosure and thermal metal framing which is coated with a matte-black finish to match the custom racks.
3. 357 WEST 17TH STREET, NEW YORK
In-keeping with the blend of modern and country styles, the wine cellar is undoubtedly one of the highlights of this $36.8million house. Each bottle within the climate-controlled room is tastefully illuminated by LED backlit walls, which, together with the rustic exposed brick back wall and arched ceiling, create an effortlessly chic aesthetic.
4. 795 HIGHCOURT ROAD, ATLANTA, GEORGIA
Within a six-acre, European style estate is this perfectly presented, 2000 bottle wine cellar. Consisting of a high powered, contained cooling system the maintains a healthy temperature of 15 degrees Celsius, the most impressive feature here is the barrel vaulted, hand laid Italian tile ceiling which uses an ancient technique to ensure weight is evenly distributed within the design.
5. DARLINGTON, MAHWAH, NEW JERSEY
Labelled by many architectural buffs as ‘The American Versailles’, this rare estate has a wine cellar (with separate temperate controls for red and white wines) connected to a 27 square foot wine room. Everything in this luxury wine room is completely custom made, the real show stopper is the wine wall that displays 326 wine bottles. Along with the two blue chairs in the picture (previously owned by Sir Elton John), the décor creates the impression of a well curated art installation that any luxury home owner would die for!
