7 Bedroom, 6 Full and 2 Half Bath, 5 1/2 Acre Estate, 5 Minutes to Downtown

Stonecote is a beautiful, 5 1/2 acre estate built in 1920. It is fully updated and professionally decorated. It has 7 bedrooms (each with a television), and sleeps 20 in beds (24 with 2 pullout sofas), including 3 master suites each with private baths in the main house, and another master suite w/bath, living area and kitchen in the pool house. The main house features a beautiful gourmet kitchen w/butler's pantry featuring 2 built in refrigerators, 2 wall ovens, 2 warming drawers, 3 dishwashers, an ice-maker, a 6 burner Viking Professional gas cook top, wine cooler and Carrera marble counters. The palatial living room features multiple, comfortable, conversation areas, baby grand piano and wood-burning fireplace. The large dining room can seat up to 20. Also, the large sun room offers additional, less formal gathering space, and has a 52' TV with surround sound.

The enormous 50' x 25' heated, salt water pool has lovely fountains, is surrounded by mature perennial gardens, has a baby pool and swim lane for laps. There are also ping pong and foosball tables, exercise equipment and free weights in the finished basement.

The stable has 5 stalls and a tack room and we can refer you to have bedding, feed and hay delivered before you arrive. All this, surrounded by beautiful, mature trees and perennial gardens, five minutes to downtown, the waterfront, 10 minutes to Churchill Downs, 20 minutes to Valhalla and the PGA tour, AND we have an on-site property manager/concierge next door to help you make arrangements and be a resource for your stay. She can even arrange for a personal chef to cook for you during your stay or have a massage therapist come (additional fee).

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. :)
