Stunning Town and Country property on historic Wolf Pen Branch Road just 20 minutes from downtown, within 10 minutes to KY Country Day School and Holiday Manor Shopping Center. The setting is serene with a composition of Federal house, Dutch Colonial barn and cedar board and batten garage with standing seam metal roof. Its expansive lawn with mature trees, boxwoods, perennial and herb gardens grace the property. The 1900's converted horse barn includes a loft studio with large windows, a full bath and a bar area below. The barn boasts Dutch Colonial architecture with a gambrel roof and bell-cast eaves, adding a touch of New England...The barn can certainly play host to a wonderful Derby party or to an intimate event. Originally built in 1856, impeccable restorations and expansions have taken the effective age to today's current lifestyles. The current owners have meticulously restored and expanded the 5221 sq foot house and grounds with architectural integrity. A private tree lined drive leads to the spectacular front lawn with sweeping views of the lovely acreage. From the house, one captures breathtaking scenes of sunrise and sunset. For the first time in nearly 30 years, this exclusive property is being offered for sale. The Federal style house is situated on 2.49 bucolic 'level' acres with private vistas from every window. Tall ceilings, custom windows and doors with light-filled rooms, exquisite moldings and low-voltage lighting are a few of the eye-catching details. The property exudes a casual feeling, though only the finest materials are present. There are custom four panel doors with forged iron hardware and hinges throughout and an abundance of antique Heart-of-Pine flooring. From the lovely entry to the beautifully updated and detailed interior, this property is an exquisite one-of-a-kind residence to meet the requirements of the most discerning buyer. In addition to the beautiful entry and drawing room, there is a family room with fireplace and a pecky cypress ceiling, a wonderful master bedroom with fireplace and ante room featuring a box bay window. Stunning updated baths are throughout. Gorgeous period moldings and details are never ending. The Artist studio is located above the party/horse barn and can function as a separate home office but has endless possibilities with magnificent light-filled windows. There is a wine cellar beneath the family room. This beautiful property was featured in the 2017 "Distinctive Dwellings" Filson Historical Society tour. (See write up in document attachments.)
