Property Type:Single Family
Lot Size:0.45 Acres
From the moment you arrive to this home, you will first observe something hard to find in Louisville: privacy, yet just minutes away from nearby Norton Commons, Brownsboro corridor, shopping & restaurants, hospitals, I-71, Gene Snyder Freeway, and more. Nestled on a cul-de-sac in the Glen Oaks subdivision of Prospect, across the street from the house is a small grassy embankment with an outcropping of rocks that borders the nearby Glen Oaks Country Club golf course. Upon approaching the front entrance your eyes are drawn to a lovely babbling waterfall which tumbles into a crystal clear pond nestled near a crouching Japanese maple tree. The pond is dotted with water lilies, and the air is perfumed with the fragrance of lavender, rosemary, and jasmine, surrounded by red and yellow roses, and a spray of dwarf and taller evergreen shrubs and trees. As you enter the home you will be enticed by the sense of spaciousness created by the 20 foot ceiling, and the large picture windows which allow ample sunlight to flood the great room and dining area. In beginning your tour you see masterfully designed built in book cases and shelves, along with a wet bar, set upon gorgeous natural hardwood floors which extend the length of the house into the kitchen and adjoining deck. Handcrafted molding is on display throughout the house, but perhaps at its most grand in the high ceiling in the first floor primary bedroom. Two separate walk-in closets are situated adjacent to the primary bedroom and ensuite bath, complete with jacuzzi, tile flooring and seated shower stall. The upstairs has three bedrooms, a full bath and 3 full walk-in closets, and a half closet used for storage that leads back to the attic. The lower level features a large walkout basement with built in surround sound speakers and entertainment center. There is one bedroom and a second room which serves as space for exercise or an office. Downstairs are three additional closets, a full bath, and two more built in bookcases. There is a large, unfinished storage area with ample shelf space. On each side of the downstairs fireplace are two large windows and a foyer leading out to the lower deck which comes equipped with a Maxx hot tub, designed by a German physician with strong (and adjustable jets) whether for hydrotherapy or relaxing massage to soothe tired muscles, and induce relaxing. Evenings in the hot tub allow for total privacy while outside, along with views of the rising moon over the creek at the bottom of the back yard. The backyard is a garden of earthly delights! The lot is bordered with trees on all sides, offering wonderful privacy and a sparkling creek which is home to ducks, herons, and other birds who you can count on to serenade you with their cheerful melodies. Guests often comment that when here they feel as though they are at a private resort. It is yours to discover & enjoy!
