I don’t know about you but I still have Louisville on my mind after that fantastic Kentucky Derby race! This got me thinking … what can I get for $1 million in Louisville, Kentucky? What I discovered is nothing short of Derby Day perfection, and perhaps the next best thing to celebrating at Churchill Downs. Let’s see just how far our money will go in the good ol’ Derby City.
White House of Oldham Co.
We kick things off with this bright white beauty! Although it sits on a generous 1.67-acre lot 20 minutes outside of Louisville, it’s still technically a Louisville home in our hearts, located in a well-to-do enclave in the city of Prospect.
With lush green space, five bedrooms, four-and-a-half baths, a sparkling pool, walk-out game room, wet bar, and a whopping 5,188 square feet, it’s impeccably designed as a gathering place to host family friends. Get an eyeful of that striking black-and-white kitchen with warm wood, ample white cabinetry, giant center island, and statement-making ladder to reach all those upper cabinets. So. Much. Yes!
If you want pristine luxury living in a family-friendly Louisville community, this is it. The description reveals it’s ideally situated in an “active neighborhood with kids on bikes, motorcycles, and four wheelers.” True Kentucky-style living right there, folks.
A huge basement with pool table and half kitchen, tricked-out home theatre, and luxurious bathrooms that make you feel like you’re stepping into a spa, make this million-dollar Kentucky home a front runner on our list.
Dubbed “The White House of Oldham Co.” this classically Southern estate is one of the books.
3206 Hidden Springs Ln, Prospect, KY is currently listed by Greg Taylor of Re/Max Louisville for $1,000,000.
1864 Restored and Regal
Once a dairy farm stretching all the way to Beargrass Creek, this stunning historic home built in 1864 has only had a total of five owners.
It includes impressive original details, including stunning oak ”prohibition” hardwood floors throughout with Greek key inlay. The wallpapers alone are enough to make you do a double-take, and when paired with the custom millwork and gleaming oak floors, it’s a certifiable work of art.
In fact, every room among the 7,817-square-foot estate has a regal look and feel, with luxurious appointments and custom touches that make it truly stand on its own.
The six-bedroom, six-full-and-one-half-bathroom home is nestled at the end of a private cul-de-sac and affords mature grounds with elegant spaces to entertain. A sophisticated kitchen, billiards room, and 8-car detached carport round out the exceptional estate.
Imagine the fun to be had in this backyard! Think intimate dinner parties, weddings under the stars, milestone moments out on the terrace and among the private secluded grounds. From our view, this historic Louisville estate is a clear winner. It’s giving me “Sabrina” vibes. Remember the part where Harrison Ford’s character Linus, has to cover for his brother David and meets Sabrina with champagne in the solarium? If you haven’t seen the modern version of this classic film, you should! Now back to the races…
510 Penwood Rd, Louisville, KY is currently listed by John Stough of Kentucky Select Properties for $999,000.
Prim and Proper on 5 Wooded Acres
Last in the lineup but certainly not least, from our bird’s eye view this English-style abode is a strong contender. Prim and proper with so much to love, what a charming English Manor indeed! It sits on five wooded acres with incredible indoor-outdoor spaces to entertain, plus fourbbedrooms, five-and-a-half bathrooms, and a gracious 5,589 square feet.
Custom woodwork, intricate moldings, maple hardwoods on the first and second floors, walls of picture windows, and the expansive gourmet kitchen only add to the appeal. But what makes this Kentucky charmer really stand out? Perhaps its the massive lower level family/game room with English style pub?
It has stained glass doors that lead outside where you’ll find covered decks, wooded pathways, and a private canopy with outdoor fireplace. We adore the meticulous landscaping and mature trees.
2700 Little Hills Ln, Louisville, KY is currently listed by Eric Seltz of Lenihan Sotheby’s International Realty for $989,000.
Much like gambling on the likes of Kentucky-bred stallion “Justify,” these beauties are a sure bet! Have a favorite? We would love to hear in the comments. If you have a city you want to see on our “What Can I Get For A Million” feature, email a suggestion to email@example.com.
