This home is meant for those with a true appreciation of architecture, a discerning taste for becoming one with nature and those who truly want a retreat like no other property anywhere in the Louisville area. Built as a labor of love and the legacy of a renowned structural engineer, this is a true masterpiece balancing the tightrope between finely crafted contemporary architecture with a warm domestic space meant for family, friends and an intimate connection with nature. As most masterful architects, the front of the home seems unassuming with its stone and cedar gently welcoming guests to enter what will soon become ''an experience''. As soon as you enter the home you are greeted with the large expanse of glass that brings in natural light and immediately beckons you to become one wit the nature that surrounds the home. From the front entry is a large dining room separated with glass blocks and framed with the Brazilian cherry wood floors you will find running through the dining area and the expansive family room. The family room soars with windows embracing the treetops for a view like no other. If you choose to become entranced with the interior, you will find a fireplace framed with beautiful custom bookcases. Leading into the kitchen is a bar area that curves along the wall into every chef dream kitchen! The massive island with granite that blends with the appreciation of nature's rich colors. The gas cooktop, Advantium wall ovens, and a walk-in pantry complete the grand kitchen "working space". The eat-in area has a second fireplace and windows and doors to celebrate the artwork of nature. Off the kitchen is a full bath and large second primary bedroom with its own entry to the back of the home and windows that give a gorgeous view from all angles of the home. Also off the kitchen is the large laundry room and an extra utility room. Opposite the kitchen is a second wing where you will find a second large bath with entry into the only traditional shaped room in the whole house! This home is meant to curve into the landscape; any true "angles" are difficult to find! Lastly on the main floor is the massive primary suite truly meant for relaxation! The view from the large windows and the entry into a private deck area is nothing less than awe-inspiring. The whirlpool tub, walk-in shower and his and her closets complete the spa like bath area. The interior design is meant to focus on light and the woodland view, but the living space flows out through numerous doors onto the true focus of the home: the decks and the views! The decks are made with maintenance free treks and the exterior frame is made of stone, rough sawn cedar meant to weather with time and railing meant to dissolve the barriers to nature. Choose to sit in the covered area with an outdoor fireplace or move to the uncovered area with natural light streaming through the trees. When the trees are not in full bloom the view extends to Floyd Fork Creek. Even in the rain you can enjoy the stillness of the forest or listen to the relaxing sounds of water falling from the downspouts running off the roof overhangs to the natural canopy below. Even the bridge leading to the 3 car-oversized garages will make you want to sit and enjoy the sights and sounds below and above. If you want to leave the woodland delight, head to the lower level for even more living space. A fourth huge bedroom and massive full bath gives an extra sense of privacy for guests or family members. In these days of work from home, an office like no other with spectacular views will make work feel more like a retreat! As a nod to the profession he loved, an exposed steel beam flanks the high ceiling in this space. A full bar/kitchen extends along one wall ready for entertaining those in the second family room area with doors leading out to the second deck area. This lower floor includes a pool table area (pool table light does not convey but the pool table is to convey with the property) and extra space for watching the game activities. Do not miss the walk-in wine cellar with concrete and cedar covered walls. Storage is not an issue in this house with numerous closets and even extra storage areas outside along the decks but the large storage area in the lower-level gives added space for all your belongings! Back outside onto the lower deck you will hear the stream that gently flows along one side of the property. There is a natural spring on the property that feeds the stream that eventually flows out to Floyds Fork. This celebration of the engineer's passion includes massive commercial grade concrete and steel pillars rising up from the Earth. There is truly no other property like this in the area. As yet another nod to the passion of the family, all of this is set in the popular subdivision of Persimmon Ridge although you will not believe a property like this exists in a neighborhood! Persimmon Ridge includes a golf course, pool , clubhouse all available for membership. Do not miss a chance to experience this true retreat. A balance of the intimate connection to nature with a sense of comfort makes this property truly unique.
