Urban Lower Level
A connoisseur’s love for wine, the joy of entertaining, and a quickly-growing family necessitated the renovation of this Brookfield basement. Gutting and reframing created a spare bedroom, home gym, and general storage area. A full bath with access from both the bedroom and the common area boasts a generous shower and comfortable accommodations. The common area features a nook dedicated to vintage arcade games, a full-size pool table, and a closet full of toys and games. The full wet bar features an oven, fridge, ice maker, and wine cooler. Ample seating is available at the kitchen’s bar or the custom-made hand-distressed counter against the wall of quartzite flats. This detail continues into the wine room, where pine racks and custom signs denote type and vintage. The generous seating area flanks the existing brick fireplace and provides a place for all to gather. Existing load-bearing beams were wrapped in wood matching the custom cabinetry, and a unique double-beam accent lends interest to every surface of this lower level.
