Property Description

Nestled along the towering bluffs of the Ohio River, this incredible multigenerational estate offers an once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to own an expansive piece of Louisville history in an incomparable location and setting. Offering an unparalleled first impression, the estate begins with a mile long, tree-lined driveway designed by the legendary Olmsted Brothers, who simultaneously completed the design of the estate's dramatic entrance as they created New York City's acclaimed Central Park. The picturesque driveway winds through 10+acres of secluded woodland, wading streams, and lush fields, flanked by green space for enduring privacy and peacefulness. Featured on the National Register of Historic Places, the Tudor estate home presents over 10,000 square feet of decadent living space with soaring ceilings, rich millwork, and historic craftsmanship, including 5 bedrooms, 7 full baths, paneled billiards lounge, formal dining room comfortably sitting 14 guests, two-story family room with cathedral ceilings, and much more. Privately held for over half a century, the timeless 116-year old Tudor has been carefully restored throughout the years, sitting ready for the next owner to make their own. The estate's grounds are equally unforgettable, featuring an oversize stone terrace overlooking the Ohio River, private walking gardens, 2,000+ sq. ft. outdoor party structure with gracious heated in-ground pool, and acres of forested woodland. Featuring a combination of pastoral, forested, and rivered views while still just minutes from the heart of Downtown and East End Louisville, this incredible estate is not to be missed.
