Extraordinary Louisville offering. This unique ''English Regency'' style home was designed by architect Frederic Lindley Morgan in 1936, and was renovated in 1988 by architect Stratton Hammon who restored an extraordinary 2 story foyer with a domed skylight (according to Morgan's original sketches) and added an elegant stairway, among other Hammon updates to this home. Elegant and comfortable, this exceptionally well maintained home flows like a gem, with french doors accessing the outdoor limestone wrap around terraces everywhere you turn. It blends fine historic ambience with fine current contemporary style, and offers oh so many updates. It's situated on a .73 acre private lot on one of Louisville's most desirable streets and locations, Lightfoot Rd. The current owner added a fabulous contemporary open design first floor master suite with a beautiful hand carved entry door, heated floors, access to a limestone porch addition, large custom closet, and a master bath with custom Westport cabinetry, cast-iron air tub, concrete double sink, washer/dryer and a steam shower. This recent (2016) first floor master addition also inspired the creation of the spacious L shaped hallway/gallery - these renovations by architect Pat Blackburn/Stan Volker, Mike Hunter builder. A stunning 20 by 40 salt water pool with limestone edging and concrete surround, and an in floor cleaning system (Gym & Swim) with electric cover was added in 2010, and there's an outdoor full pool bath. The lovely living room with unusual octagonal bay windows (by Hammon) opens to the wrap around terrace, and offers an exquisite slate/limestone gas fireplace surround recently designed by artist Matt Weir. From the living room you enter the elegant cherry paneled family/library room with Greek key banding and built in bookcases, with 2 sets of french doors leading onto the wrap around terrace and covered terrace. The attractive renovated eat in custom kitchen, designed by Creative Kitchen, offers Wolff and Subzero appliances, and provides perfect entertaining access to the spacious formal dining room. A half bath, and a cozy office/reading room with fireplace located off the entry hall complete the first floor. Upstairs is the original master suite with 2 large closets (and includes the Hammon signature octagonal bay) and a beautifully recently renovated custom bath with open design shower and white onyx sink. There are also two ensuite bedrooms on the second floor, one offering a charming sitting/dressing area. The finished walkout basement has a large laundry room, a family/game room, a bonus room used as a bedroom and a full bath. Luscious landscaping. Whole house generator. Back yard irrigation. Fully fenced backyard. Custom iron gate in backyard and rail into pool by Shane, Steel Creations. The inviting, private, pebbled courtyard in front provides easy multiple guest parking.
