Rostrevor, Estate of the Day
In honor of the Kentucky Derby, our estate of the day takes us to this great property in Louisville, Kentucky. One of the most beautiful houses in Old Louisville, Rostrevor was created in 1908 by design firm Carrere & Hastings. The 23-room mansion was the home of Mr. and Mrs. Jouett Ross Todd. The home is built of limestone and has a Renaissance style with a red tile roof. The property has classic lines and details that include ornate moldings and stone fireplaces. There is a wood paneled library, formal dining room and a wine cellar. The landscaped grounds of over two acres include an additional lot, formal gardens, a swimming pool and a three-car garage. It is listed at $7.5 million. A few pictures of the elegant interior after the jump.
