Stonecote is a 5-acre estate built in 1920. It is fully updated and professionally decorated. It has 7 bedrooms (each with a television), and sleeps 16 in beds (including a pull-out sofa bed). Room configurations include: 3 master suites each with private baths in the main house, and another master suite w/bath, living area and kitchen in the pool house. The main house features a gourmet kitchen with butler's pantry featuring 2 refrigerators, 2 wall ovens, 3 dishwashers, a Viking gas cook top, wine cooler and Carrera marble counters. The living room features multiple, comfortable, conversation areas, an antique baby grand piano and wood-burning fireplace. The large dining room can seat up to 20. Also, the large sun room offers additional, less formal gathering space, and has a 52" TV.
The 50' x 25' heated, saltwater pool has shooting fountains, is surrounded by mature perennial gardens and has a baby pool (pool is open seasonally, mid-May to late-September, depending on weather).
The stable has 5 stalls and a tack room and we can refer you to have feed and hay delivered before you arrive, if you are traveling with horses. Stonecote is surrounded by beautiful, mature trees and perennial gardens, yet is 10 minutes to downtown, the waterfront, 10 minutes to Churchill Downs, 20 minutes to Valhalla and the PGA tour. We also have an on-site caretaker who lives in a carriage house on the property.
Please note that the rate for the Kentucky Derby is a flat fee of $25,000 from the Monday prior to the Derby to the following Monday. Please send an inquiry if interested in the rental of Stonecote for the week of the Derby.
Please also note that due to requirements by the city of Louisville, we are unable to host events. We also request that guests observe "quiet hours" starting at 10pm every night to avoid disturbing neighbors.
