MLS#: 1553557

3752 Upper River Rd

Louisville, KY 40207


1922Year Built

Poised to make its debut to the market, this pedigreed property invites, inspires and reflects a life of infinite possibilities. Formality and a rich sense of history hallmark the adage that a home is neither defined nor confined by its structure. A home is defined by the style it reflects, by the character it embodies, by stories told and memories made. This home's style lives within and is reflected in concrete measure through architectural details that wrap the home in warmth and decorative wall trim crown molding. Inspired with reverence of bygone days, the homes classical elements merry with the prestige of its notable architect, Ogden Codman, Jr. His work included the design of The Breakers, owned by Cornelius Vanderbilt II, and Kykuit, owned by John D. Rockefeller, Jr. He alsoco-wrote The Decoration of Houses with Edith Wharton which became a staple in interior design. The novel outlined specific rules for the proper planning and finishing of interior residential spaces, which are reflected in the masterfully crafted design of this property. The juxtaposing tactile combination of mediums from wood to granite to stone serve as a historical nod, representative of the multitude of generations the home has housed. In the 1890's, a legendary Louisville businessman, acquired the property on which this lavish estate was eventually built. Founder of the Peaslee-Gaulbert Corporation, inventors of ready-mix paint, his company is credited with helping to rebuild the South after the reconstruction by enabling people to paint their own homes. Originally, this piece of property spanned three miles, which was one-tenth of Jefferson County at the time but eventually, a large portion of it was sold to create Interstate 71. Frederick Law Olmstead, the designer of Central Park and all of Louisville's park systems was hired to design the landscaping which has been notably profiled in Garden & Gun. The home's lush landscaping indelibly telegraphs inaudible feelings of serenity akin to the blissful breeze wafting through the open-air. Time stands still in Upper River Road, for those who take a moment to appreciate the beauty of it's heritage.
