Finished Basement Bar

This pub style bar is the focal point upon entering this newly finished basement. Double level Wooden Hammer solid walnut countertops make this space a one of a kind. Custom recessed brick niches evoke a rustic charm. The beautiful brick archways that were built throughout this lower level along with hickory flooring give an old world feel. A Wooden Hammer custom door leading to a brick wine cellar along with a solid walnut bar countertops in this pub style bar are just a few design elements of this new lower level. A home theater, bedroom, exercise room and two new baths are also part of the design. The basement seems to go forever and then opens up to the incredible backyard, complete with a Gunite swimming pool and spa, stone work and landscape all melding with the architectural style of this gorgeous home. Finished Basements Oakland County, MI

Sink/countertop - Was that countertop/sink & cabinet custom built or did you buy it some where? I you purchased it somewhere, do you mind telling from where and how much?

The walnut countertops were all custom built. Pricing is difficult because it included the wine cellar door and several areas of the basement and a coffered ceiling. If you are in the Michigan area we could price a walnut countertop for you. The cabinets are a natural cherry and are made by Wood-Mode. Thanks for asking
