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. An airy, neutral palette allows for a keen focus on the exquisite countryside backdrop, a quintessential feature of this luxurious property. The kitchen features custom cabinetry, a central island, top of the line Thermador appliances and a Miele coffee bar. The theme of subtle elegance resonates throughout every inch of the home's professionally designed interior, including luxury fixtures by Circa Lighting and Restoration Hardware. The first floor master suite is complete with custom his and hers walk-in closets by Closets By Design, a second laundry, private patio and a master bathroom with an over-sized marble clad shower. The first level also features a bedroom, full bathroom, powder room, laundry room, mud room, and a planning desk that segues to the attached garage. The home's lower level echoes the main level with two adroitly connected wings. On the left, two bedrooms share a Jack and Jill and the other features an expansive entertaining area. Whether you seek a retreat from the technology driven world by delving into a literary classic by the stone hearth, imbibing the finest spirits at the full bar or sharpening your billiards game, the lower level delivers endless possibilities. The allure of this property extends beyond the traditional confines of a contemporary home. From elegant soirees to backyard barbecues, the invitation to host, dine and unwind is extended. The patio features a Chicago Brick Oven wood-fired pizza oven and the ultimate setting for large-scale entertaining The expansive property includes a carriage house, additional three car garage and a half basketball court. The carriage house features a bedroom, full bathroom, entertaining space and workout area. The open-air embraces the ambiance of serenity, transforming this home and your views on what it means to truly live. Call to schedule a private showing today.
