Specialty Room

Scottsdale, Ariz.

Project name: DC-723
Project location: Scottsdale, Ariz.

The objective for this room was to create a feeling of stepping down into a wine cellar and entering into a different world. The challenge for Calvis Wyant Luxury Homes in Scottsdale, Ariz., was combining the owner’s desire for a subterranean wine cellar in addition to the desire for a romantic and private wine tasting area. By recessing the wine cellar only a few feet and encasing the interior walls and ceiling with stone, Calvis Wyant was able to provide the feel of a true cellar. By not taking the wine room fully below grade, the builder accomplished incorporating a private sunken patio with classic iron railing and a carved stone fountain. This creates the ultimate in an intimate setting to enjoy a glass of wine.
