Louisville’s Historic Boxhill Estate Hits the Market for the First Time in 40 Years for $5.7M
3200 Boxhill Lane in Glenview, Kentucky, is currently listed at $5,750,000 by Lenihan Sotheby's International Realty.
Available for the first time in 40 years, the iconic Boxhill estate is a 6.5-acre legacy property that sits atop a picturesque bluff overlooking the Ohio River. The stately, Georgian Revival-style main house was constructed in 1906 with original designs by noted architect Joseph E. Chandler, and was later updated by the famed Stratton Hammon. It’s one of only 21 homes in the Country Estates of River Road historic district in Louisville, and was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1983.
Every inch of the 9,113-square-foot home was meticulously planned: The 22 rooms (seven of which are bedrooms, five full bathrooms, and three half-bathrooms) are arranged in a gracious layout, creating an effortless flow that suits daily living and entertaining alike.
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 the original hardware and exquisite moldings in the formal living and dining rooms. 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 and 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 and surrounded by stone walls and limestone steps—meld seamlessly into the landscape.
In the front of the house, the storied Olmsted landscape architecture firm designed an impressive tree-lined mall from the estate’s front gates to the main house. An 850-square-foot greenhouse and 1,600-square-foot carriage house round out the offerings on this historic estate.
