Welcome to the Cullum Homes Car Bar — a cutting edge, revolutionary new space where car enthusiasts can display their prized collector cars and fine automobiles inside a select few homes in Arizona’s priciest zip code of Paradise Valley.
Arizona luxury home builder Cullum Homes has coined the phrase “Car Bar” in designing a new basement option that includes a space to park your car, equipped with its own elevator. That’s right – a car elevator will be used to lower vehicles from the main garage to the basement showroom, utilizing a motorized lift system.
The option is now available in Cullum’s new homes located inside the Village at Mountain Shadows.
The place that housed the beloved Mountain Shadows Resort for 50 years and hosted celebrities, sports stars and tourists in the shadow of Camelback Mountain, has been demolished to make room for 40 new luxury, guard-gated homes in a 10-acre, $100-million project.
The modern Car Bar will be available in Cullum’s homes, which range between 3,500 to more than 7,000 square feet. Wall-to-wall glass will provide easy visibility of prized collector cars and motorcycles from the other luxurious areas within the Car Bar level, including a custom theater, wet bar and wine display, plush seating area with flat screen TV, and a poker/game table. In addition, there are two full-size bedrooms with private bath on this level.
Need to display more than one exotic car or collector car? No problem. The basement showroom is 1,300 square feet and can easily accommodate three to four vehicles at one time.
“It’s rare in Arizona that you get a basement, let alone a Car Bar,” said Rod Cullum, owner and founder of Cullum Homes. “We think our Car Bar is cutting edge and creates a unique space for car enthusiasts to show off their one-of-a-kind find behind modern glass walls.”
Car lovers can choose between several floor plans that have been designed by renowned Phoenix architectural firm Candelaria Design Associates. The homes boast a soft desert contemporary look and feel to accentuate the spectacular view and resort lifestyle.
The entire home and the 3,523-square-foot basement, including the Car Bar, is designed using Insulated Concrete Forms or ICF. This technique adds significantly increased energy efficiency and strength/durability to the structure.
Model homes are expected to be completed in October 2015. Those interested in learning more about the Car Bar at the Village at Mountain Shadows should contact Scott Grigg with Realty Executives at 480-540-5479 or email at AZFineProperties@cox.net.
