New Separate Cocktail Space at Saphire Estate
Saphire Estate has long been known for its breathtaking lake shore views, a romantic courtyard perfect for outdoor ceremonies and cocktail hours, and the exclusivity of hosting one event at a time, ensuring clients that a wedding held there is truly “their” day. But beginning in Fall 2018, Saphire Estate will debut a brand-new space on its property that will truly make it the ideal venue: a 2400 sq. foot designated interior cocktail space!
The Saphire family has worked with the Town of Sharon, architects, and designers for the last three years to get approval to renovate the existing Inn on the property (the building off the courtyard) to have a separate cocktail space. After a long road, permits were secured and construction began in December 2017. Instead of renovating the existing structure, the decision was made to tear it down and build new to ensure that the building would be fully up to code and serve future clients in the most functional and aesthetically pleasing way.
The exterior construction of the building is now complete, with the interior set to be finished by Labor Day 2018. The interior of the cocktail space will showcase some unique features like a limestone fireplace, custom chandeliers, a caesarstone bar top, and more. Elements like patterned drapery, linen wall coverings, and dark oak millwork will retain the classic beauty of this quintessential New England estate, while incorporating modern upgrades and design choices.
Over the next few months, we invite you to follow along as we share weekly updates on the construction, decor, and so much more. We can’t wait to show you the completed project later this year!
