Laurel Woods Cellar

Laurel Woods Cellar

Weston, MA

As part of the renovation and addition to the entire home, the existing basement was renovated and expanded to create this unique entertaining and recreation level. Designed with a striking modern palette, the lower level houses a wine cellar, bar, exercise room, home theater, sauna, bath, conference room, laundry and storage. The exercise room is flanked by a sauna and powder room, and has a large shower in the back with a glass skylight ceiling, adding generous daylight to the space. The curved, glass topped bar is outfitted for entertaining with a sink, refrigerator, and tap equipment, backed by a temperature controlled wine tasting and storage room.

This area is also home to a fully-equipped, professionally outfitted test kitchen/food laboratory, as the homeowner is an avid home chef. The central island is piped with air and gas, and houses a specialized prep sink. Along the back wall, two flat-tops, a grill, range, three ovens and additional specialized appliances allow for a variety of cooking methods. The “lab” is also equipped with two televisions/monitors and fully wired for cable and internet.
