The Hunter Valley Arrives In Mosman!


For our latest project, we have transformed what was once a home theatre room into a wine cellar that rivals those found in the Hunter and Barossa Valley’s.

Located off the living room, the cellar features an array of natural materials in one of the most ambient entertainers settings. Polished marble walls and recycled timbers retrieved from an old boat shed are just some of the materials used at the property to compliment the private collection of Australian minerals and fossils.

The cellars temperature reflect that of a vineyard, established a little higher than your typical cold cellar storage. The space created at this home in Mosman is truly a place to enjoy great wine, great art, great culture and create lasting memories.

Of course, it wouldn’t be a One Up Building project if there wasn’t a challenge to overcome: the entire project needed to be completed in just 10 weeks, with the deadline looming being Christmas! The project timeline included not only the extensive demolition and structural alterations to the space, but the fit out of the entire cellar using bespoke materials and the highest quality finishes. Additional challenges started right at the front door. The cellar was only accessible for the team via a side entry which was the typical steep water frontage terrain.

As the One Up team doesn’t shy away from a challenge we grabbed it with both hands and were excited at the opportunity to work on such a unique project.

Even with all the unique challenges that this project posed, the team at One Up were thrilled when this magnificent cellar came together on time and on budget. The most pleasing aspect of the entire projects is our very happy clients, who not only get to enjoy their fantastic new cellar everyday – but they were able to enjoy it with friends and family over Christmas as intended.
