When you think of Kentucky, the state doesn’t exactly conjure lakes and oceans and historic lighthouses. But some sea-loving soul just happened to love lighthouses and live in Kentucky. The result is this totally unique – and beautiful – 2,200 square foot raised home near Prospect, Kentucky.
Located on Captains Quarters Road, this unusual home is currently listed for sale for $779,000.
It has 3 bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms on 1.08 acres of riverfront property.
The unique design was inspired by the historic Thomas Point Lighthouse in Maryland and offers nice views of the Ohio River.
The main living space is accessed by an elevator.
Once inside, you are greeted with a nautical-inspired interior.
House Crazy Sarah is LOVING these celery green cabinets:
Although, if the designer wanted to go full-on nautical, they should probably have painted them an aqua blue or buoy red.
The great room centerpiece is the rustic brick fireplace that stretches high up into the vaulted ceiling.
The kitchen is compact but big on style:
There is also a tidy little TV area which feels much larger than its square footage due to the high ceiling and walls of windows.
Let’s have a look at the bedrooms in the back of the house.
The master is an unusual shape – but hardly anything is “usual” about this home.
Check out the mater bath with sliding barn door:
The walk-in shower is like a hallway!
Here’s the half bath with a funky rope-framed mirror and a sink bowl that is a tad disconcerting…
The other bedroom is super fun with two built-in bunks that are apparently queen-sized.
There’s tons of room in the guest bedroom so you could throw a few more cots in here and have a sleepover par-tay!
The guest bathroom is the bomb:
Now look at this:
House Crazy Sarah is giggling her head off! Cool dude!
There is an unfinished attic above the main level that could be finished for more living space and it would have killer views from the faux lightbox.
Where are we again? Oh yeah – KENTUCKY!
When you are a land-locked sea-lover in the Bluegrass State, all you need is a little imagination and a big sense of fun.
Lovely house, I wish the light on top worked.
Thanks for stopping by Gerri!
