Originally the manor house to a gentleman's farm, today, thoughtfully expanded by the present owners with the guidance of Timothy Winters, architect, into a lovely country estate of 5+ acres bordering Harrods Creek. Sited on the bluff, which affords stunning views over Harrods Creek and the Ohio River Valley to the Indiana Bluffs beyond. The fine architectural details from the original house were replicated and incorporated in the recent additions. The original spacious formal living and dining rooms are still present. The stone floored former sun room is now a handsome English library with fireplace, bookcases and floor to ceiling windows. A new kitchen with vaulted ceiling, heart pine flooring and state of the art appliances joins the formal dining room and the handsome hearth room. The former kitchen is now a butler?s pantry and bar area ideally suited to entertaining. A first floor mud room and laundry are reached just off the hearth room. A first floor guest bedroom with full bath is also off the hearth room. A new master bedroom wing comprises a charming sitting room which opens to a stunning master bedroom with vaulted ceiling. Luxurious his and her baths and dressing rooms complete this private wing. Upstairs are two spacious bedrooms each with their own baths. One bedroom could serve as a second master with a large dressing room and adjoining sitting room or office. It currently serves as an exercise room. The exterior grounds and landscaping were created as extensions of the living area with courtyards and terraces on 3 sides of the house. An exterior stone fireplace anchors the limestone terrace which is reached from the kitchen and library. Paul Cappiello, formerly of Bernheim Arboretum and currently the director of Yew Dell Garden designed the entry garden with a formal boxwood parterre. Hundreds of trees and shrubs were added in addition to the cobblestone lined pea gravel driveway and entrance courtyard flanked by two garages. No expense was spared wi
