Live like royalty

Modeled after a 17th-century English countryside home, Delong Manor is believed to be the largest home in Kentucky. It features three floors, accessible via an elevator, and is made from steel, concrete, and Indiana Limestone — the same material used in US landmarks. In other words, it’s sturdy.

The two-story entryway, which doubles as a great hall, is 103 feet long, boasts 22.5-ft-high coffered wood ceilings, and welcomes you with a seating area + fireplace. Fun fact: All bedrooms on the second floor have en-suite bathrooms and access to a private terrace balcony.

Other notable features:

  • Large primary bedroom with an en-suite bathroom, and a custom closet with a sliding ladder
  • A sunroom
  • Dining room that seats 16
  • Bar room
  • Gym with an infrared sauna
  • Nine-seat movie theater

Luxury outdoor living

If you thought the interior was gorgeous, wait until you see the grounds. The 70-ft saltwater pool has two pool houses and is steps away from expansive custom paver terrace. Outside you’ll also find:

  • A croquet garden
  • Tennis courts
  • An eight-car garage
  • Wisteria-covered custom pergolas
