About 1700 Rivercrest Ct
Welcome to Notre Nid sur la Riviere! Stunning countryside estate sitting atop 6 acres with breathtaking views of the Ohio River in the highly sought after neighborhood of Rivercrest Estates! This home was carefully crafted by Sterling Development Group to reflect the owners' love of Kentucky and specifically positioned to maximize its greatest feature - the river view, visible from almost every room - in this 4 story walk-out home. All the rooms in this stately home are spaciously and thoughtfully designed to capture the views of rolling green horse pastures beyond the front acreage, as well as the views of the river beyond the wooded fall away lot in the rear of the home.Other notable features of this home include: an attached 3 car garage; service entrance; two kitchens; an outdoor fireplace and entertainment area; expansive back 2 story Trex decking; built-in Sonos surround sound; a secret room; and a splendid 3rd floor crow's nest. Upon driving up the expansive doublewide driveway of the property, you will see the two front entrances to the home, and upon entering the massive two-story mahogany main entrance, you'll immediately notice the soaring ceiling height in the two story foyer enhanced with an expertly crafted dome and gorgeous rope lighting showcasing a Swarovski crystal chandelier. The magnificent marble tiled grand foyer is perfectly complimented by the rich color of the curved mahogany staircase. The staircase itself is adorned with handcrafted iron spindles that feature several custom horse head silhouettes. Just through the grand foyer you'll pass the formal half bath and enter a second central foyer which adjoins the next three large rooms of this spacious and open first floor plan. These rooms have brilliant wide plank Brazilian cherry flooring: to the left is the formal dining room with gorgeous crown molding, a sizable storage closet, and yet another Swarovski crystal chandelier. The great room is straight ahead with lovely built-in book shelves, a marvelous wet bar, and a grand picture window that perfectly showcases the sweeping rear views of the river. The kitchen and hearth room to the right share a double sided gas fireplace to provide warmth on cold winter days. The chef's kitchen and hearth room serve as the heart of the home and were specifically and thoughtfully designed to maximize storage space and efficiency. Here you'll find handsome custom cabinetry and a large central island paired with top of the line Wolf appliances and additional conveniences like the Subzero ice maker, two island drawer refrigerators and a spacious pantry. If you take a quick step through the hearth room and walk out the rear french doors you'll find the long covered deck which boasts multiple seating areas. This is the perfect place to enjoy dinner with family or friends while overlooking the gorgeous treetop canopy of the surrounding woods. Back inside and down the central hallway you'll find a second stairwell, a spacious laundry room, a delightful guest suite with french doors to the rear yard, and the service entrance/mud room that services the rear veranda and garage. On the second floor you'll notice the stately central office with built-in bookshelves and french doors overlooking the two story hearth room and the river beyond through the large arched windows of the hearth room below. This study also enjoys views out the front of the home of the horse pastures visible through the large front arched windows that flank the grand front staircase. To the left of the study and down the long second floor hallway is the master suite that serves as the owners' private getaway. Here, you'll find two spacious his and hers closets, an additional office space (with a sink and refrigerator), a double sided gas fireplace, and more gorgeous views of the Ohio. The spa-like master bath has everything you'll need including heated floors, double vanities with under-counter central vacuum, a jetted tub, and a frameless glass shower with two shower heads and multiple body jets. The right wing of the second floor contains two additional bedroom/bathroom suites and a large media room for kids to enjoy. If you continue up the rear stairwell you'll pass a lovely reading nook and a clever secret room behind the bookshelf. At the very top of the stairs you'll find the coveted crow's nest that contains a wet bar with a refrigerator and an ice maker. This is the perfect place to enjoy a hot cup of coffee at sunrise or an evening night cap as you take in the majestic views of the tranquil river below. The lower level walkout is home to the most recent renovations at the property. Down here you'll find the entertainment room featuring a large built-in of mixed wood and stone housing the large screen tv and bench storage, mirrored by stone and granite topped columns opening to an impressive kitchen that features a hammered copper farm house sink and copper tile backsplash, stainless steel appliances, a bourbon bar with a second tv area, and once again, expansive views of the river below.
