Access to the basement level is gained by a flight of stairs located directly under the main, grand staircase on the first floor of Boldt Castle. It would have also been accessed by the elevator as well. In the basement there was to be an elaborate wine cellar, as well as rooms for supplies for the castle. A room would have been used to keep ice. There was also to be a bakery down there, a boiler room for steam heating of the house and swimming pool, and a couple of dressing and lounging rooms – to be used in conjunction with the indoor swimming pool. The original plans called for fireplaces in every room. The swimming pool is located in front of the castle, facing Alexandria Bay, and access to the underground servants tunnel is nearby as well.

On the first floor, or ground level, is located the reception room, library, Mr. Boldt’s office, the main hall with the grand staircase of white marble, and the dining room. There is also a billiard room and a ballroom, which houses a pipe organ and a keyboard which controls the Westminster Chimes located in the Power House. The ballroom was to be finished in flemish oak and the library in walnut wood-panels. Also on this floor is the butler’s pantries and storerooms, and the maids and servants dining room.
