Surrounded by stunning views in every direction, this authentic mid-century modern 5 bedroom, 4.5 bath home offers indoor luxury and outdoor adventure on 10 private acres. It also offers a hard to find first floor master suite with outdoor access, and a first floor laundry. Designed by Louisville architect Gerald S. Baron in 1973, the home has been carefully restored and extensively updated by the current owners with guidance from nationally recognized architect Jeff Rawlins of Architectural Artisans and interior designer Jennifer Dumesnil of Swope Design Group. The ethos of the house is defined by smart design, artisanal craftsmanship, and the use of high-quality natural materials, such as travertine marble and a variety of beautiful woods. Because the house flows in harmony with the gently sloping terrain on which it rests, the south-facing, window-filled back of the house is high above the ground. As a result, the living room and master bedroom have a treehouse feel that is both inspiring and soothing. Separate but open and aesthetically connected to the large living room is a beautiful dining room with rich architectural features. In much the same way, the kitchen and the sunny family room are clearly defined spaces yet organically linked to one another through clever design. At opposite ends of the family room are views of the sunrise in the morning and the setting sun in the evening. The park-like property includes a beautiful salt-water swimming pool and trails for hiking, running, mountain biking, and horseback riding. A meandering stream that flows into Harrods Creek runs discreetly through the wooded area. The tennis court has been used for basketball as well as tennis by the current owners, though the space could easily be repurposed for soccer or another activity. This unique community, known as the Timbercrest subdivision, is a scenic and spacious 50-acre neighborhood with only four residential lots. The bright recreation room on the lower level has a cork floating-tile floor and a full wall of sliding-glass doors overlooking the wooded portion of the lot. Also on the lower level is a large gym with a sauna in excellent condition. The wide hall between the recreation room and the gym serves as a functional and elegant office nook for the current owners, but could be repurposed in a number of creative ways. Additional features of this unique home include three fireplaces, multiple walk-in closets, and ample storage space. A large mud room between the attached garage and the family room contains the half bath and has multiple cubbies for temporary storage needs for daily and seasonal use, a desk nook for sorting mail and charging devices, a large utility sink, a handy watering station for easy care of houseplants, and plenty of room for a long bench. All this just 15 miles and 25 minutes from downtown Louisville.
