MLS#: 1540283

10601 Us Hwy 42

Prospect, KY 40059


1940Year Built

This outstanding home was built in the late 1930's as the country retreat for an executive that resided at the Seelbach Hotel. He required the interior to look like the hotel and even installed an elevator similar to the one at the Seelbach. After numerous updates over the years, all done to carefully preserve the rich heritage of the home, you'll find that same serene retreat, but with wonderful changes that have kept it current. You'll still find handsome random width pegged floors, a slate roof, beautiful stone work and massive hardwood doors that run across the front of the home, inviting nature in. The renovated kitchen has helped host many dinner parties and celebrations here.This home is renowned for gracious entertaining that spills out onto several terraces and even up to the enclosed "sleeping porch" that offers the best views of the beautiful sunsets. Your views of pastures and wildlife will not be disturbed here, as the surrounding land is held in a protected trust and cannot be developed. Three car garage plus covered parking in the barn for two additional cars. The quality of the original design and craftsmanship, along with owner's vision over the years to cultivate the beauty of the land and enhance the home make this a rare offering. Located in the heart of Prospect with easy access to downtown.
