Welcome to Glenview's iconic Boxhill estate, a legacy property with 6.68+ pristine acres atop a picturesque bluff overlooking the Ohio River. Available for the first time in 40 years, this premier listing represents a one-of-a-kind opportunity to own a part of Louisville's history. Situated on a sprawling lot in sought-after Glenview, the stately Georgian Revival-style main house was constructed in 1906 with original designs by noted architect, Joseph E. Chandler, and later updates by the famed Stratton Hammon. One of only 21 homes in the Country Estates of River Road historic district, Boxhill was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1983. Every inch of the 9,113 square-foot home was planned with vision: the 22 rooms are arranged in a gracious layout, creating an effortless flow that suits daily living and entertaining alike. Seven bedrooms, five full bathrooms, and three half-bathrooms offer ample space. Fine workmanship and period details can be found throughout the house, from the black-and-white marble tile and winding staircase in the foyer to exquisite moldings in the formal living and dining rooms and original hardware and windows. A handsome cherry-paneled library, designed by Hammon, opens into a spectacular sunroom with sweeping views of the park-like grounds overlooking the pool. Boxhill's rolling acreage is a bucolic retreat with mature trees, a small pond with extensive plantings and wildlife. A broad, welcoming back lawn leads to a stone overlook with breathtaking views of the Ohio river below. An in-ground pool and pool house, added more recently, meld seamlessly into the landscape, surrounded by attractive stone walls and limestone steps. In the front of the house, the famed Olmsted landscape architecture firm designed an impressive tree-lined mall from the estate's front gates to the main house, creating an impressive approach that is unrivaled in Louisville. An 850 square-foot greenhouse and 1,600 square-foot carriage house round out the offerings on this historic estate. This property is professionally shown by appointment.
