4508 River Rd, Glenview, KY 40025  

Originally part of the Historic Locust Grove Plantation, Longview farm was bought and the house built in the late 1840's by the Crisler family and then purchased by Ike Hilliard of the Hilliard Lyons Company around 1915. The house and acreage remained in the Hilliard family until the current owners purchased the property in 2001 and started an extensive renovation. Located above the flood plain in Glenview, with acreage on both sides of River Road and bordered by Beargrass Creek, this is an amazing and breathtaking piece of real estate. For added peace of mind, the land which adjoins on the east side is in a conservation easement. Overseen by local historian, Sam Thomas, this historic house was restored to pristine condition with a beautiful contemporary addition designed by the office of Sarah Lake, and former Lake/Flato architect, Joe Neely, from San Antonio, Texas. Designed to encompass the beautiful views of the Ohio River, Six Mile Island, fields, and exquisitely designed gardens by Landscape Architect of note, Sarah Lake. There is a magnificent view from every window. The interiors, are a reflection of the natural materials of Kentucky, with poplar, pine, and blue stone floors, a massive limestone fireplace, honed marble bathrooms, and a neutral palate of earth tone colors. The main house is a combination of both formal and casual living that creates a flow so all the areas can be used for entertaining or intimate living. A large gourmet kitchen with amazing storage, beautiful soap stone counters, top line appliances, with casual dining opens to the spectacular great room looking out at river, gardens and fields. The original historic part of the house contains large rooms with high ceilings (10'4" on first floor and 9'6" on second floor), fireplaces, formal living and dining rooms, both with beautiful views of the river. A jewel box powder room with antique French marble sink and reception area with fireplace and doorway to the terrace completes the perfect s
