Some have asked, “Who in their right mind would build a one million dollar spec home in Shelby County, Kentucky.”

Introducing… Ben Hardin, Owner of B Developed, LLC.

October 23rd, 2019, B Developed, LLC’s spec home located at 118 Locust Lane in Shelbyville, KY that was listed w/ Melinda Hardin, Torrey Smith Realty Co., LLC sold and closed for $998,000.  Hardin’s home boasted 4,205 square feet on 7.23 acres.

Needless to say, this home was an absolute Dream Home! The spectacular board and batten Urban Farmhouse melds luxury with warmth, contemporary with cozy, and stately with homey. Ben had spared no imagination in creating this masterpiece.

Kitchen/Dining Area:An entertainer’s dream, a chef’s playground and a resident’s refuge. This kitchen has it all: Gorgeous Calcutta quartz countertops, top of the line custom cabinets and island, gorgeous lighting, two dishwashers, two sinks, two ovens, an induction cook top, a separate bar area complete with wine refrigerator in the dining area. What’s more? It’s wrapped in windows showing off the breathtaking views and allowing natural to cascade into the room. To boot? Shiplap walls and incredible wood flooring!

The Great Room is absolutely amazing with so many unique features! One of a kind antique wooden structural columns accent the main living area. A glass garage door serves as a wall and opens up into the courtyard. The woodburning fireplace with a firewood niche beg you to sit and unwind after a long day.

The downstairs master suite boasts vaulted ceilings and plenty of natural sunlight and the ensuite master bathroom feels like its own spa. Pure Luxury!! Premium tile, counters and cabinets. Large oval bathtub inside of the glass in shower room with three shower heads. The master closet is fit for royalty.

The second downstairs full bath houses a unique farmhouse tile floor and crisp white tile shower wall, cabinets and countertops. Incredible!

The front corner room can be used as a bedroom, office, study, library, music room. So many options!

You’ll love the first floor laundry room with the bonus of an upstairs laundry chute.

Make your way up to grand staircase that features contemporary wire and wood railing and take note of the coffered ceiling with tin and copper accents.

The second floor hosts three bedrooms. The upstairs master suite is a showstopper. Cozy up in the front sitting area and take in the lush farmland that surrounds you. Stargaze out the windows by your bed in this peaceful setting you get to call home. The upstairs master bathroom is simply magazine worthy. From the structural lines of the room to the tile design down to the cabinet knobs, it’s a beauty!

Find your way to two sizable and bright additional bedrooms on the other side of the stairs with a shared bath.

Unfinished walkout means you can add even more living space after closing should you desire.

An exterior breezeway takes you into a three-car garage with plenty of room for storage. An unfinished space above the garage could built out to be an in-law suite, apartment or office after closing by the buyer. There are even two horse stables attached to the garage.
