On a pastoral lot at the edge of the Cabin Circle cul-de-sac in Glenview Hills, lies a unique opportunity for a design-build project including the original historic log cabin dating to 1920. The cabin is full of unique and authentic details including beautiful stone fireplace hearths, wood mantels and beamed ceilings. The massive wood slab doors swing on forged iron strap hinges and have wood leaf spring latches. These among many other craftmade touches set the stage for a re-imagined Kentucky homestead. Design concept renderings (available) by John Bajandas provide for a major kitchen expansion and great room. The plan includes a window surrounded kitchen opening inside to the original dining hall, as well as an additional great room facing Glenview Avenue. A new proposed 3-car garage to mirror the forms of the cabin, and further frame the lot. The garage orientation would lend a protected, private, compound-like feeling to the large flat yard. The enclosed area could easily contain a large walled garden or pool area.

Restoration work to date has included a new 50-year Decra metal shake roof and custom copper gutters and downspouts to match original. The logs have been chemically cleaned, sealed and stained to specification with Perma-Chink products, including a pest treatment step during the process.

With neighboring custom home sales closing at $240-$300/SF, this property could easily support a significant addition, a major interior build out, or a thorough restoration style remodel. Priced at $144/SF ($749,900), this affords the buyer a conservative $500,000 ($96/SF) construction budget to stay in line with the area, while customizing the project to suit their additional needs and tastes.

The interior has a wonderful meandering floor plan which is conducive for entertaining, first floor or multi-generational living. On the south wing of the expansive ground level are 3 bedrooms and 3 en-suite bathrooms, including a light filled potential Master, with incredible built-in closet cabinetry. The north wing has a 4th bedroom and en-suite bath. Finally upstairs, there is an additional Master suite with full bath and walk in closet, for a total of 5 bedrooms and 5 en-suite bathrooms. There is also a half bath adjacent to the kitchen.

Agent has an ownership interest in the property.
