Breathtaking views are commonplace in Poplar Woods, a 203-acre development in Oldham County characterized by the surrounding rolling hills and wooded landscape. The neighborhood promises perks of country living while still offering easy access to top schools.
Situated on a private lot in Poplar Woods, this four-bedroom, three-and-a-half bath home at 1013 Poplar Ridge Road has so much to offer. Built in 2015, the traditional build sits on nearly an acre that backs up to a community green space that cannot be developed, ensuring spectacular views from the home’s first and lower-level patios and spacious yard. Inside is just as spectacular. “Those who visit will be wowed by the deliberate attention to detail from the overall design and flow of the home to the selection of accent hardware and lighting,” says Judie Parks with Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Parks & Weisberg. Let’s take a look around!
Catching your eye from the moment you enter the home, the grand staircase introduces an unexpected architectural element to the home. “The foyer showcases the grand, turned staircase and an arched doorway leading to the great room,” Judie tells us. To the left of the staircase, the formal dining room is outfitted with a custom ceiling that complements the angular design of the staircase, and the windows allow plenty of natural light.
The dining room opens into the central part of the home: an eat-in-kitchen, great room and hearth room. The home’s open floor plan boasts easy movement from one room to the next, and custom moulding carried throughout the home is just one of the many features that makes this home exceptional.
Design details continue to impress in the eat-in kitchen. Granite countertops and backsplash, designer lighting, professional-grade appliances, granite composite sink, built-in refrigerator and custom cabinetry accentuate the grandeur of the home. The kitchen comes fully equipped with an Advantium oven and warming drawer, making cooking all the more enjoyable. The cabinets, designed by Chris’ Custom Cabinets, offer ample storage and create clean, consistent lines within the space. There is rarely a dark day in the kitchen as the sliding doors allow natural light to pour in.
“The gourmet eat-in kitchen and hearth room is the perfect combination of everyday living combined with the elegance for the most formal of entertaining,” Judie shares. “It is bright and spacious but still warm and cozy — a very difficult combination to achieve.”
Although both designed as multi-use spaces for entertaining and relaxing, the home’s hearth room and great room are distinct in design. In the hearth room, the built-ins are painted a deep grey color, allowing them to dramatically frame the granite fireplace. The simplicity of the ceiling enables the architectural details of the back wall to shine. As an added bonus, the layout can be arranged in a way that allows the room to act as an extension of the kitchen, or in a way that allows the room to be a private escape.
Through the kitchen to the other side, you will find the great room. While the hearth room is attractive for the eye-catching design of the built-ins and fireplace, the great room garners attention for the coffered ceiling, which brings a welcomed formality to the space that’s matched in the design of the room’s fireplace. Can’t you imagine kicking back in this space?
The main level, which seems to go on forever, is also home to the master suite and bath. In the master bedroom, the off-set bay window overlooks the beautiful landscaped yard, but perhaps even more impressive? “The custom-designed master bath with herringbone-designed heated floor, floating vanity and the walk-in shower with pebbled flooring,” adds Judie. Factor in the his-and-hers sinks, separate soaking tub and shower, lots of bathroom storage, plus a large walk-in closet, and you have the perfect ensuite bath!
The final features of the first level are found in the laundry room, powder room, mudroom with built-in cubbies, and a home office. The practicality of these spaces accommodates day-to-day life in the home.
The second floor’s square footage is dedicated to three oversized bedrooms, two bathrooms and an additional laundry room. Two of the bedrooms feature walk-in closets and share a Jack-and-Jill-style bathroom, while the third bedroom boasts an ensuite bathroom and large walk-in closet. Each bedroom offers plenty of space and windows that allow natural light to flood the space.
“The basement has been roughed-in for a wet bar and a full bath. The window allows for a future fifth bedroom, and the expansive open space allows for a media room, game room and large family room and still have plenty of space leftover for your storage,” Judie shares. Take advantage of the clean slate this area offers by expanding the home’s offerings in a way that fits your lifestyle.
Furthermore, Poplar Woods is the site of the 2017 Homearama, an annual Louisville event that showcases custom built new homes at a single site that are fully furnished, decorated, landscaped and feature the latest in building trends, technology and interior design.
