Built with the owners’ input and design in 2002, the Estate at Mayo Lane is a rare opportunity to own a private, sprawling, 10-acre Kentucky property minutes from East End amenities. Influenced by classic Southern and European architecture, the residence boasts five bedrooms with a first floor master suite, eight full bathrooms, two half bathrooms and nine fireplaces in more than 17,000 square feet of meticulously-maintained finished living space designed with both luxury and comfort in mind. From the gated entry to the massive Corinthian columns, the level of detail and care are evident before you even walk through the custom-made, leaded and beveled glass front door.

Inside the stunning entry, one is instantly captivated by the beauty of this home. A custom designed iron and gilt railing lines the curved staircase. The adjacent library with custom millwork and coffered ceilings that are carried throughout the home boasts a cherry-paneled bar and abundant wainscoting and woodwork. The first floor master suite includes a private sitting room and fireplace, an expansive yet warm bedroom with a barrel-vaulted ceiling and a luxurious bathroom. The three second-floor bedrooms each have their own en-suite bathrooms.

The grand living area, also complete with a vaulted ceiling, offers sweeping views of the terrace, pool, fountains and lush landscape. An elegantly appointed dining room is the perfect place for hosting guests, with a grand chandelier as its centerpiece and a convenient butler’s pantry nearby. The home’s kitchen offers ample cabinet space, high-end finishes, a cozy breakfast area and a comfortable hearth room. The tall windows overlook the pool, and the doors open to an outdoor terrace with ample space for any size gathering.

A private apartment with a full kitchen, bathroom, bedroom, den and laundry provides the ideal set-up for family, visitors or care providers. The lower level, which opens to the grounds and garden, provides further living and entertaining space. An impressive stone fireplace anchors this level, surrounded by a sitting room, bar and billiards room. A roomy home gym and spa, a spacious wood-paneled office, additional bathrooms and ample storage space round out the lower level. Outside, mature trees and rolling land create a stunning vista from the terrace. Professionally-designed gardens and landscaping highlight the elegant pool with its statues and fountains, pool house and expansive terrace. Don’t miss this rare opportunity to make this one-of-a-kind estate your own. V
