2505 Poplar Crest Rd

Louisville, KY 40207


1974Year Built

This gracious and elegant home in the private Poplar Hill section of Indian Hills is a significant find. Exuding all the charm and perspective of traditional Jeffersonian architecture, guests are welcomed by the circular driveway lined by mature boxwoods. A sizable foyer framed by Doric columns leads straight into a large living room, opening onto the terrace through custom French doors. The large rectangular slate terrace is walled with an entrance into the backyard of this 1.09 acre flat lot, perfect for building a pool. Inviting views front to back are impressive. Inside, handsome crown molding adorns both the formal living room and the adjacent library in harmony with the 9 1/2 foot ceiling height,creating an open entertaining venue across the back of the house. A wood burning fireplace with a gas starter anchors the living room and a convenient gas log fireplace repeats in the butternut paneled library with perfect symmetry. Hardwood floors abound and a beautiful bay window in both the living room and the library flank the French doors to the terrace. Large, lovely arched doorways complement foyer to living room and living room to library, repeating the Jeffersonian tone. The traditional library includes built-in custom shelves and a discreet bar tucked into the corner with a hidden counter shelf door allowing for replenishments. Both convenient and beautiful, a central hostess hall runs horizontally throughout the length of the house with ample silver closets, linen closets and coat closets. The formal dining room is entered from the right of the foyer which leads to the breakfast room, kitchen and the two-car garage. A stairway off the kitchen leads to a basement used as a gym with wall sized mirrors, more storage and mechanicals. Past the foyer on the opposite side of the house are three large first floor bedrooms and baths. The master bathroom was completely updated and expanded to accommodate large custom built-in shelves, cabinets and vanity as well as a whirlpool tub. A water closet with added storage and a walk-in shower are tucked into corners preserving a spa-like French door entrance complete with chandelier. Two small closets were enlarged in the bedroom to create a larger walk-in closet. Stepping across the hallway is another arched door linen closet convenient for bedrooms. The second bedroom, used as an office, has an updated bathroom and built-in closets. The third first floor bedroom is formal and perfect as a guest room. Climbing the stairs from the hallway, a skylight brightens the area and leads to a hallway and two more spacious bedrooms with high ceilings and outstanding walk-in closets. A newly renovated contemporary bathroom has been molded into the unique Jeffersonian architecture. Built into the charming dormer and angles, the soaking tub, walk-in shower and custom vanity are artfully displayed. This home is a jewel with timeless elegance, a nod to superior architecture and first floor living at its best, where privacy and elegance meet in one of Louisville's most desirable neighborhoods.
