Significant price adjustment, motivated seller. This elegant home is nestled in a beautifully forested area offering privacy and seclusion, only minutes from downtown. It was inspired by the historic Georgian mansion built on the James River in Virginia by William Randolph in 1750. That home has been deemed one of the greatest remaining examples of American wood workmanship still in existence. Many of those fine examples are evident throughout this outstanding Louisville home. The grand foyer boasts detailed marble floors, a soaring 20 ft. ceiling and an elaborately milled staircase with volutes, up-easings and Brazilian Cherry treads. There are 8-10 piece crown moldings, handsome pilasters and several custom bookcases throughout the first floor. The expansive living room and dining room continue the Georgian influence, offering unique raised panel hurricane shutters at the windows and period fireplaces. The gorgeous floors throughout the home are 200 year-old Southern Pine, resawn from warehouse beams. Attention to detail and fine craftmanship is evident in each and every room. The living room leads to a beautiful Cherry paneled library, offering unparalleled millwork; curved and flat pilasters, Corinthian capitals, arched shell bookcases and Brazilian Cherry, herringbone floors. An outstanding retreat with wonderful views of the surrounding acreage. Made for entertaining, the large kitchen and adjoining family/hearth room open onto a lovely stone terrace that is accessible from several vantage points on the first floor. The family room adjoins a second great room/game room with 10-12' ceilings, a cupola, slate floors and a handsome stone fireplace, replicating stone workmanship from the 1700's. Just another unique characteristic of this outstanding home.
