About the owner: Andrew West grew up in Redlands, California while Christina grew up in Wellesley, Massachusetts. When looking for a place to raise our family, we settled in beautiful Louisville, Kentucky, where we have now lived for nearly 18 years. We love Louisville for its sophisticated living with a healthy helping of southern hospitality!
Why the Owner Chose Louisville: We fell in love with Stonecote because it offers the best of everything! It is a rare find: a 5 1/2 acre equestrian estate in the heart of Louisville! The setting is absolutely beautiful at Stonecote (built c1920) and is a private, country-like retreat. The 50 x 25 ft heated pool with shooting fountains is a great place for the kids to play and the adults to relax on spring and summer evenings. Stonecote feels like a secluded, private park and is a perfect setting for many different occasions. The historic, hometown feel of Louisville makes it a great place to visit…any time of the year.
The Unique Benefits at this Estate: Stonecote has an amazing flow for entertaining and an enormous, top-rate, gourmet kitchen (making it perfect for fundraising and other catered events), and plenty of room to gather, as well as ample areas to 'get away'. We would know, as we raised our 6 children in this home. :)
