Gold Winner:
A Cut Above
All you really need to know about the owner of this entertainment pavilion is that after the $1.3 million construction, he was standing in the room while some jazz by Duke Ellington was playing, and he found himself tapping his feet and saying, “Ah, now that’s a cut above.”

Silver Winner:
Deep Rooted Theater
Maybe it was the Mission-style spindles on the backs of the chairs that caught our attention, or perhaps it was the alabaster-colored ceiling pendants that drew us in. Whatever it was, one thing’s for sure: This theater possesses a style that’s refreshingly fitting for a home that dates back to the early 1900s.

Bronze Winner:
Simply Stately
It’s a stately looking theater, but the requirement for this space was ““simple, elegant quality.”” The owner wanted a top-drawer theater that was easy to operate for his family as well as guests, and which fit the elegance of this 18,000-square-foot summer home in the mountains of North Carolina.
