Originally part of the Historic Locust Grove Plantation, Longview farm was bought and the house built in the late 1840's by the Crisler family and then purchased by Ike Hilliard of the Hilliard Lyons Company around 1915. The house and acreage remained in the Hilliard family until the current owners purchased the property in 2001 and started an extensive renovation. The three houses and garage are located above the flood plain in Glenview, with acreage on both sides of River Road and bordered by Beargrass Creek, this is an amazing and breathtaking piece of real estate. For added peace of mind, the land which adjoins on the east side is in a conservation easement. Overseen by local historian, Sam Thomas, this historic house was restored to pristine condition with a beautiful contemporary addition designed by the office of Sarah Lake, and former Lake/Flato architect, Joe Neely, from San Antonio, Texas. Designed to encompass the beautiful views of the Ohio River, Six Mile Island, fields, and exquisitely designed gardens by Landscape Architect of note, Sarah Lake. There is a magnificent view from every window. The interiors, are a reflection of the natural materials of Kentucky, with poplar, pine, and blue stone floors, a massive limestone fireplace, honed marble bathrooms, and a neutral palate of earth tone colors. The main house is a combination of both formal and casual living that creates a flow so all the areas can be used for entertaining or intimate living. A large gourmet kitchen with amazing storage, beautiful soap stone counters, top line appliances, with casual dining opens to the spectacular great room looking out at river, gardens and fields. The original historic part of the house contains large rooms with high ceilings (10'4" on first floor and 9'6" on second floor), fireplaces, formal living and dining rooms, both with beautiful views of the river. A jewel box powder room with antique French marble sink and reception area with fireplace and doorway to the terrace completes the perfect space for entertaining. A large butler's bar area with amazing storage and all the amenities services both formal and casual areas and leads you to the new addition kitchen, informal dining, mud room pantry, another half bath and great room. Upstairs the spacious master suite has a breathtaking view of both river, fields, and gardens with a large sitting area, fabulous master bath and unbelievable closet space. There are 2 additional large bedrooms both with views of the river, large closets and a study for additional use. The second floor playroom could easily be converted to 4th bedroom and 3rd full bath. Also on the second floor is a large laundry and linen storage area. Both elegant front formal staircase and back casual access staircase create an incredible flow throughout the house. The main house is surrounded by beautiful gardens, brick and stone terraces, steps of massive Bedford stone, creating multiple areas for outdoor dining or enjoying the spectacular views. In addition to the main house are two spacious guest houses. One with full kitchen, 2 bath, 2 bedroom with living & game room area and the other a guest/office or gym building with full bath. There is also a large storage area at the end of this building next to the drive for added refrigerator, freezer or seasonal storage that is climate controlled. The garage/shop is discreetly located out of sight of the main area for cars, equipment and gardening needs. Next to the garage shop is an adorable historic crib shed that has been renovated for a chicken coop and yard. All the amenities of living in the country but only 5 minutes from downtown make this a truly unique and priceless piece of property!
