A home is neither defined nor confined by its structure. A home is defined by the style it reflects, the character it embodies, by stories told and memories made. Purchased in 1868, the original estate that now makes up the City of Glenview was home to some of Louisville's most distinguished families. Cleverly tucked on a private 4.6 acre cul de sac lot, this sleek contemporary residence blends seamlessly into the historic landscape of Glenview's oldest living species, mature trees. The collaboration of architect Jim Peterson and expert builders, Wissing and DiCario Construction resulted in an eloquent execution of unrivaled craftsmanship. This uniquely designed floor plan allows for easy transition from room to room, evoking a familial warmth that plays to modern sensibilities. The home features five bedrooms, three full bathrooms and two half bathrooms throughout its 6,962 square feet of living space.
The formal and informal living rooms are connected by a dining area and kitchen are as impressive as they are stately. The character of a home lies not only in its intricacies but also its ability to adapt to the modern luxuries even the most discerning buyers expect, like Control4 throughout.
