Presenting a rare opportunity to own one of the premier luxury properties in Western Kentucky. On the market for the first time, this estate was custom built by J.B. Crenshaw and features the highest quality construction, as well as special features that were planned with great care. This home is being offered on 5 acres, with additional acreage available. The approach to the property is a long, private, graciously winding drive lined with gorgeous flowering trees. Bordered by four-rail fencing and surrounded by lush, green lawn, the property features 3 lakes.
As you reach the circular drive, you’ll notice the estate’s custom-cut stone veneer exterior, slate shingle roof and copper gutters and downspouts, as well as the lush landscaping. If you arrive in the evening, you’ll be welcomed by custom outdoor lighting enhancing every feature. A spacious 4-car garage is accessible from the side of the home and is finished at near interior quality.
The entry of this home brings you into the grand, two-story foyer. The soaring ceilings, wall of windows, marble flooring and glittering crystal chandelier showcase the room’s piece de resistance – the gorgeous custom-designed, site-built, freestanding curving staircase. Throughout this spectacular home you will find incredible details like 10 to 12-foot ceilings, heavy custom millwork, solid wood doors, hardwood flooring, custom-built windows, fine quality door and window hardware and more, all of which has been maintained with exceptional care. There are phenomenal countryside views from every window. Mechanicals are all commensurate with a home of this scale – with two 100+ gallon hotel water heaters, multiple electrical panels, a custom security system and more. All systems within the house exceed any building code or engineering requirements, and the structural elements exceed all architectural or engineering minimums.
The first floor offers a formal living room and dining room, both with spectacular, imported crystal chandeliers and solid cherry wood paneling. The gun and game room is a stand-out feature of this home. It houses custom gun cases with leaded glass accent windows, solid cherry wood paneling, a built-in bar area, inlaid flooring and more. It’s the perfect spot to enjoy a game of cards and some Kentucky Bourbon. The spacious, eat-in kitchen features premium custom cabinetry and solid surface countertops, as well as commercial-quality appliances. The family room has a custom entertainment center and fireplace and flows into a four-season sunroom overlooking the rear terrace and pool. The sunroom also accesses a guest suite with a private full bath. The 2,500 square-foot master suite is also conveniently located on the first floor. This suite hosts a wood-paneled study, a bedroom with a fireplace, and an exercise area that includes an indoor hot tub that overlooks the exterior hot tub and terrace. Toward the back of the first floor, you’ll find a large utility room that houses the laundry.
