Louisville Real Estate Pros Present : 5402 Merribrook Lane for sale
The south side of Prospect, Norton Commons, and the rest of the surrounding area has become one of the most desirable places in Louisville to live. It’s clearly due to offering a little bit of everything in an extremely convenient fashion. With too many shopping options to count, a dizzying array of dining establishments, and enough entertainment to satisfy everyone, it’s become the perfect location for someone that doesn’t want to travel far to have it all.
At 5402 Merribrook Lane you’ll find a home where you can enjoy all those conveniences, but still maintain the privacy and sanctuary of a house tucked away by the woods!
Perched at the back end of the Wolf Pen subdivision on a quiet cul-de-sac, this five-bedroom, six-bathroom home will amaze you with its smart, expansive floor plan, interior touches, and a backyard that turns spring through fall into a staycation paradise. Picture yourself lounging in a hammock staring up as the wind works its way through towering old-growth trees while sipping your favorite beverage and smelling the flavors wafting over from the grill. The hustle and bustle of Brownsboro Road shopping will feel a million miles away, but luckily for you it’s within walking distance!
One step inside the home and you will realize that the outside world isn’t necessary for relaxation or convenience. With an extremely well-thought out floor plan that flows simply from room-to-room you’ll feel connected to your entire home no matter where you are. Tons of natural light flows into the house through high-end wooden transom windows and through the extra wide entryways and archways, serving as the perfect compliment to the open floor plan.
The first floor living room and dining room bask in this light and the perfectly white crown molding ties everything to the fireplace that’s the focal point for this expansive living space. A large counter with bar seating allows a view into the gourmet kitchen, a communal area defined by its elegant cabinetry, tasteful lighting, and massive granite island that serves as a magnet for friends and family.
You’ll find refuge in the master bedroom and bathroom. A large three-tiered ceiling adds so much spaciousness to a room with delightful lighting from both the sophisticated chandelier and a variety of fixed and casement windows. The connected master bath features a jetted tub, high-end cabinets, a full double sink, and a large walk-in closet (a feature in every bedroom!)
The first floor also possesses beautiful hardwood floors, an office, a second dining area/sitting room, and a laundry room that can only be called a master laundry suite due to its sheer size and amenities (once you see it, you’ll quickly agree).
Upstairs features four bedrooms and two Jack-and-Jill bathrooms with plenty of space for a yoga room, a second office/library, or anything else you desire. Downstairs is tailor-made for entertaining with a custom bar, full refrigerator, recessed lighting, and ample space that opens to the backyard.
And it’s the backyard that often steals the show with a two-tiered layout that creates plenty of unique spaces for everyone to entertain themselves. The yard is big enough for any volleyball or kickball game or step around the corner to the concrete driveway where there might be a basketball game just outside the three-car garage. And don’t worry if a sports injury pops-up, the nearby Norton Brownsboro Hospital minutes away offers first-class care and treatment (not to mention Norton Children’s Medical Center and the soon to open Norton Cancer Institute-Brownsboro, which will also offer world-class care).
If that sounds like too much commotion, then rest assured that the extensive backyard is also well set-up for the calmer pursuits we mentioned earlier. A meticulously maintained brick pathway leads to a picturesque pad in the woods perfect for lawn furniture as well as the hammock. Meanwhile, the wooden pergola right out the back door provides the perfect spot for morning coffee or the evening barbecue.
Whether you’re seeking the comfort of having everything you need at home or desiring the proximity of everything you want nearby, you won’t have to choose with this home. It’s the best of both worlds!
