A rare opportunity to own a contemporary home in one of Louisville's most exclusive East End neighborhoods, 6701 Glen Springs Court is located on .94 acre on a cul-de-sac in Glenview Springs. This one-and-a-half story home was custom built in 2013. See Virtual Tour in the Photo Section. From the circular driveway, enter the home through large glass and wood front doors that open into a foyer that boasts gorgeous white tile floors and a dramatic two-story ceiling. A crystal chandelier adds not only bright light but beauty to the entry. To the left of the foyer is a library with built-in bookshelves that an avid reader or collector can enjoy. Rich, dark, hardwood floors and black walls create a stately feeling without being stuffy. A large floor-to-ceiling window allows plenty of light to enter this room, as does the contemporary chandelier that hangs in the middle of the space. To the right of the foyer is a formal dining room. Open and airy, it can accommodate guests for nearly any occasion. A crystal chandelier and recessed lighting, all controlled by dimmer switches, help to insure the mood is set just right. A butler's pantry is next to the formal dining room. Custom cabinets with granite countertops and a stainless-steel prep sink provide a beautiful area to mix drinks and stage prepared appetizers. The spacious and well-appointed kitchen boasts dark hardwood flooring and two large islands with granite countertops. With a striking black-and-white design, the kitchen has a clean and contemporary feel, and the high-end appliances should please any home chef. The first island can be enjoyed as a place to have an informal meal, easily accommodating four bar stools. This island has a stainless-steel prep sink, as well as a vast amount of drawer and cabinet storage space. The second island includes a large stainless-steel sink with garbage disposal, an Asko dishwasher, a built-in drawer microwave, and an ample amount of storage space in the form of drawers and cabinets. A stainless-steel Wolf gas range includes six burners and a griddle that click on with ease via the brand's iconic red knobs. Above the gas range is a high-powered, yet quiet, stainless steel Wolf ventilation hood, which will carry away unwanted odors. Below the range is a pair of Wolf electric ovens -- one large and one smaller. In the large oven, one can prepare anything from a Thanksgiving turkey to multiple trays of holiday cookies. In the smaller oven, one can cook side dishes, a simple meal, or keep prepared food warm. To the right of the oven and range is a built-in SubZero refrigerator tower with two pull-out drawers, surrounded by cabinets and a granite workspace. To the left of the range is a matching built-in SubZero freezer tower with two pull-out drawers and an ice maker, which is also surrounded by cabinets and a granite workspace. The arrangement of these two food storage systems is conducive to good work flow in the kitchen. There are many cabinets and drawers to store pots, pans, utensils, dishes, glasses, spices, cutting boards, serving dishes, and more within this one-of-a-kind kitchen.
Off of the kitchen is a breakfast room. Lots of natural light enters through the floor-to-ceiling windows and French doors. The French doors open up to an Italianate style balcony, which serves as a lovely space to host an outdoor party.
Off the other side of the kitchen is a functional mudroom with cabinets and cubbies to store big and small items, and hooks to hang jackets, keys, and bags. The mudroom leads to the attached three-car garage.
The three-car garage includes a two-car parking space and a one-car parking space. There is also an entry door for easy access into the garage. At the rear of the garage are many cabinets for storing automotive and gardening necessities.
Back inside the home, there is a laundry room off of the mudroom which includes floor-to-ceiling cabinets to store laundry and cleaning supplies. The granite countertops provide plenty of space to fold clothes. There is a large wash sink, as well as two racks to hang garments.
The spacious great room has a gas fireplace and a dramatic two-story ceiling. Large windows allow lots of natural light to flow in, creating a bright and airy feel.
There is an elegant powder room on the first floor off of the kitchen.
From the great room, walk through an archway and down a small hallway into the master suite. With floor-to-ceiling windows that are shaded by custom made wood shutters, one can allow as much or as little natural light to enter the room as desired. A small sitting area provides a relaxing place to read a book or chat with your significant other. An elegant chandelier hangs in the middle of the tray ceiling, adding ambience. This master suite easily accommodates a King size bed and many pieces of furniture. There is a door from the master bedroom that also leads to the Italianate balcony.
The master bathroom is located through a set of double doors from the bedroom. The shower has gorgeous tile floors and glass walls, two showerheads, and a built-in bench.
Relax and unwind in the freestanding oval bathtub. Enjoy the one-of-a-kind, contemporary stained glass window above the bathtub, providing both privacy and beauty. A modern chandelier helps to set the mood.
Custom cabinetry with storage space, granite countertops, large mirrors, and a built-in vanity make getting ready a pleasure.
Towels and sheets can be conveniently stored in the linen closet at the rear of the bathroom. His-and-Her walk-in closets are comprised of wood cabinetry and provide ample space for most wardrobes. The water closet is equipped with a bidet.
Take the beautiful curved staircase to the second floor where you will find a loft area with built-in bookshelves. This floor includes four bedrooms and two full bathrooms (one of which is a Jack-and-Jill configuration). Custom wood shutters cover every window on the second floor, allowing in as much or as little light as desired.
The spacious lower level walkout has a first-floor feel due to the amount of light that comes in through the windows and doors. The large family room opens up via French doors to a covered patio that leads into the backyard. The family room has a seating area, bar, full-size sink, two pull-out refrigerator drawers, dishwasher, Advantium oven, and an abundance of cabinet space. Beyond the bar area is a bedroom with a large closet and full bathroom. This lower level is perfect for entertaining or for giving overnight guests a private area to enjoy. Also, in the lower level is a large, well lit room that can serve as a fitness room and/or office. A second set of French doors leads from this room to the outdoor patio. An additional room on the lower level that can be used as a craft room or game room connects to the TV or theater room, which is quite spacious and perfect for movie nights.
