Raise a pint in your very own Irish pub!
An authentic Irish pub on the home’s lower level offers “a hundred thousand welcomes” and reasons to entertain family, friends and colleagues. Featured in Cleveland Magazine, the pub is the result of careful research and planning by architects, designers and professional wood restorers. Using wood reclaimed from old barns for the floors and rough-hewn ceiling beams, the team browsed antique stores and fairs looking for unique pieces, such as reclaimed doors, authentic gas wall lanterns and a wrought-iron scrolled cemetery gate to give the space the true look and feel of a real Irish pub. The 1,800-square-foot pub, which can comfortably hold 100 people, also boasts a wine cellar.
Some elements made of newer materials needed to be altered to achieve the aged look of a traditional Irish pub. Examples of this include the antique-looking copper beer tap created from brand-new equipment and the leaded glass overlays to existing Pella windows.
A stone fireplace provides cozy warmth
A puzzle-work stone fireplace frames a sitting area with a custom-built, half-moon banquette and ottoman, trimmed overhead with rigging ropes scalloped to hold wine bottles. Natural stone blends with the reclaimed-wood flooring into a billiards room, with another TV and a copper-topped wood bar with Guinness, Harp and some variety of Great Lakes Brewing Co. beer taps.
Sliding doors lead to a patio with a gas fire pit. The home features an audio system.
