Introducing the Atherton Carriage House. Located in Glenview, one of Louisville's most desirable neighborhoods, this one-of-a-kind historic property was built in 1901 by Peter Lee Atherton. Originally part of the 170 acre ''Arden'' estate complete with a prominent botanical ''Evergreen Garden,'' the home's 1.59 acre lot sets the stage with its park-like setting, mature trees and pebble drive. Featured in Carriage Houses of Louisville, this home has a rich history housing registered Jersey cattle, Atherton's horses, Packard cars and even a chauffeur suite until 1952 when it was renovated into a private residence.
Today, The Atherton Carriage House has undergone an extensive restoration, preserving the dignity of the existing historic structure while adapting the property to meet the "wishlist" of today's modern-day buyer. With over 5,000 square feet, including 5 bedrooms, this unique, luxury property can easily accommodate your entertaining needs. The living room features original, exposed beams, a limestone fireplace, and oversized windows showcasing the stunning scenery and natural light throughout. The spacious eat-in kitchen is a chef's dream, featuring double islands, top-of-the-line Thermador stainless steel appliances and a windowed prep space that connects to the dining area. Just off the kitchen, you will find a formal sitting room with access to the outdoor veranda overlooking the sweeping backyard. Two bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms, a mudroom, an office, laundry area and another full bath complete the first floor. As you make your way up the stairs to the primary suite you will notice the large decorative window sash dividers. Separating the large primary bedroom and beautiful multi-level sitting room are large built-ins and beautiful glass doors originally from the Seelbach Hotel. The primary bathroom has a double vanity, soaking tub, and spacious walk-in shower. The second floor also features an incredible space for kids and all their friends to enjoy with a bunk room, play area, and additional bedroom. The outdoor living space and pool offer a peaceful retreat in nature with the property backing up to a large tract of land protected from development by a conservation easement. A culmination of today's most luxurious designs and inspirations and renovated by industry-leading architect and designer, this is a truly special home that will appeal to a buyer that appreciates its history, quality of construction, and thoughtful design.
