Description

If you're looking for your own private and peaceful retreat, look no further. This unique property located in desirable Oldham County provides 78 acres of lush countryside with a stunning home, horse barn and pond. There is a creek that runs through the property as well. This cape cod style home is positioned perfectly back a long, paved drive with no other homes in sight and prime views of the pond with fountain. The home was designed and built by the current owners 17 years ago with every detail taken into consideration in the well thought out post and beam construction plan. The end result is a stunning but comfortable Kentucky home with all the conveniences one expects with a rustic flair. The exterior is brick and real stone with large inviting covered front porch. Roof is brand new. In the rear is a lovely covered patio with real stone fireplace which provides a wonderful place to relax and view the pond and acreage. The home walks out to the side where there is another huge patio space for entertaining. Upon entry, you'll notice the solid hickory floors, solid pine doors, trim, beams and ceilings. An extraordinary office/study is just to the right with double entry doors and a wall of built in cherry cabinetry. Straight ahead you'll see a wall of glass windows and doors (all Pella throughout the house) providing natural light and expansive view to the property and pond. A wood burning two-sided fireplace with floor to ceiling stone is the focal point of this room which also has vaulted solid pine ceilings. The warmth continues into the open kitchen, dining and hearth room with solid hickory floors. The kitchen boasts solid maple cabinets and a huge island for gathering. The large window over the sink looks out onto the covered patio and gives another view of the pond. Other notable features of the kitchen area are a built-in desk space, beam detailing over the sink, vaulted pine ceiling, pull out trash, and incredibly large walk-in pantry. In the hearth area, the two-sided wood burning stone fireplace provides a cozy spot to have an intimate conversation or curl up with a good book in front of the fire. There's also a built-in log storage bin and doors leading to the covered patio. The open entertaining space continues into the dining area with plenty of space for your furniture and family gatherings. A convenient half bath is just down from the kitchen and a nice entry area from the attached garage. You'll flip over the massive laundry/mud room with pocket door entry and a side entry door from outside. With tons of built-in cabinets and a closet, this space would make a great hobby room as well. The first floor master suite is on the other side of the home with double entry doors from the family room. This grand room features vaulted pine ceiling, walk in closet and large windows for natural light. The master bath has tile flooring, large cherry vanity, tub/shower with glass door enclosure, linen closet and a window for more light. Up the solid wood stairs to the second floor is a nice sized loft area overlooking the family room. You'll also find two large bedrooms (both with walk-in closets), a full bath, and a massive bonus room currently set up as a guest suite. This room has multiple purposes but could easily be made into a fourth bedroom with the addition of a closet. It also has a w
