An occasional look at premium homes on the market.
The address: 3424 Glenview Ave., 40222. Asking price: $3,850,000. Agency: Kentucky Select Properties. The pitch: Inspired by Thomas Jefferson’s Monticello, Twin Leaf estate sits on a hilltop above seven lush acres and is built for entertaining — especially outdoors. The home’s highlight is the rear family room with extensive natural light and French doors leading to the absolutely stunning terrace, swimming pool and covered pool house.
Essentials include six bedrooms, six full baths and one half-bath. The second floor includes a master suite with his and hers bathrooms, plus three more bedroom suites. The third floor has been transformed into a bunk room with custom built-in beds.
The lower level features a custom-built, climate-controlled wine cellar for 2,200 bottles; a theater room; exercise room, and attached three-bay garage. There’s also a separate apartment with kitchen, full bathroom and bedroom that opens to a sunken rose garden — perfect guest quarters or for cherished domestic staff.
Here’s the main entrance, followed by a photo of its inspiration: Jefferson’s Monticello.
