Andrew West grew up in Redlands, California while Christina grew up in Wellesley, Massachusetts. When looking for a place to raise our family, we settled in beautiful Louisville, Kentucky, where we have now lived for nearly 18 years. We love Louisville for its sophisticated living with a healthy helping of southern hospitality!

Christina West purchased this estate in 2006

We fell in love with Stonecote because it offers the best of everything! It is a rare find: a 5 1/2 acre equestrian estate in the heart of Louisville! The setting is absolutely beautiful at Stonecote (built c1920) and is a private, country-like retreat. The 50 x 25 ft heated pool with shooting fountains is a great place for the kids to play and the adults to relax on spring and summer evenings. Stonecote feels like a secluded, private park and is a perfect setting for many different occasions. The historic, hometown feel of Louisville makes it a great place to visit…any time of the year.

Stonecote has an amazing flow for entertaining and an enormous, top-rate, gourmet kitchen (making it perfect for fundraising and other catered events), and plenty of room to gather, as well as ample areas to 'get away'. We would know, as we raised our 6 children in this home. :)

STONECOTE IS GREAT FOR EXTENDED FAMILIES

  • 5 out of 5
My family just completed a 7 day stay at Stonecote Estate. The home was massive and beautiful but still filled with warmth and comfortable style. The Property Manager was outstanding, responsive and supportive and we had a wonderful time in a home that allowed our large family multiple areas to enjoy our time together. The massive kitchen and marble island was the centerpoint for most meal prep and made standing around with a glass of wine the perfect pre meal ritual. The bedrooms were extremely roomy and the beds outstanding. The grounds and pool were great. The owners were also very responsive to anything we needed. Centrally located to a ton of things to do in Louisville. Just a perfect place to spend time with those you love.

BEST 4TH OF JULY FAMILY REUNION

  • 5 out of 5
Stonecote is a beautiful property and we were extremely pleased with our recent stay. The property manager went above and beyond to make sure we were comfortable and that my husband's special needs were met. We all loved the pool area, especially our four young grandchildren. The kitchen is well equipped with just about everything you'd find in your own kitchen, so meals were very easy to prepare. We all loved the huge dining room and eat in kitchen area. Plenty of special spaces to relax and enjoy family. This was the perfect family reunion spot. Lots to see and do in Louisville! We had such a wonderful, relaxing stay, and hope to return again to Louisville and Stonecote!

FAMILY REUNION

  • 5 out of 5
We rented this house for a family reunion with six families. The house was well appointed, the beds comfortable, the living space huge, and a generous kitchen. Our favorite was summer evenings on the front porch with the beautiful lawn. Thank you for helping us create priceless family memories!

EXTRAORDINARY - BEAUTIFUL, COMFORTABLE, AND SPACIOUS

  • 5 out of 5
We chose Stonecote to give our group a central gathering place for our tournament. There were 20 families staying at various hotels througout Louisville but they were able to come and enjoy dinner and drinks in the evening while the kids played in the enormous swimming pool. The estate provides an idillyic getaway with enough room for everyone to sit inside or outside. The bedrooms were magnificant, well appointed, with plenty of space for some "stoaways" from the families staying downtown. The kitchen ROCKS and has everything you need to prepare a quick breakfast for two or dinner for fifty.

The owner and property manager were wonderful to deal with. Our arrival and departure were seamless and communications prior to travel were timely and informative.

We will definately be back. This is the place to be in Louisville.
