Louisville’s Most Expensive Home Is a Limestone-Clad Mansion Asking $7.65 Million
Louisville, Kentucky’s most expensive residential property is a $7.65 million home inspired by a Belgian country estate.
Sitting on more than 10 acres overlooking the Ohio River Valley, the estate known as LimeRidge has a hand-cut limestone facade, as well as an open layout and walls of windows framing the view, according to last weekend’s listing with the Bass+Bringardner Team of Lenihan Sotheby’s International Realty.
The 2012 megamansion measures about 15,865 square feet and features reclaimed floors locally sourced from Longwood Antique Woods in Lexington. There’s also a double-height foyer, a statement staircase and several spaces for “large-scale entertaining or everyday living,” the listing said.
“The result is a timeless, elegant and warmly inviting atmosphere,” the Bass+Bringardner Team said. “LimeRidge stands as an extraordinary testament to the seamless fusion of architectural excellence and breathtaking natural beauty.”
A chef’s kitchen, with beamed ceilings, an island and a large butler’s pantry, is also located on the main level, along with a formal dining room, a wet bar, three offices and a luxurious secondary primary suite, the listing said.
There are six bedrooms total, with seven full bathrooms and three powder rooms. The main bedroom suite is on the second level and offers river views from a private terrace, two full bathrooms and custom walk-in closets. The second floor also boasts three other bedrooms, a family room and a one-bedroom guest apartment with a kitchen and living area.
On the lower level, there’s more than 4,700 square feet of entertaining space with a full bar, walk-in wine cellar and gym with a sauna, according to the listing. Outside, there’s a covered porch and outdoor dining area, a pool and spa and manicured lawns. There’s also a pond, a motor court and two separate three-car garages, one of which serves as a sports court for basketball, pickleball and other games.
