About Christina West

Andrew West grew up in Redlands, California while Christina grew up in Wellesley, Massachusetts. When looking for a place to raise our family, we settled in beautiful Louisville, Kentucky, where we have now lived for nearly 18 years. We love Louisville for its sophisticated living with a healthy helping of southern hospitality!

Christina West purchased this estate in 2006

Why Christina West chose Louisville

We fell in love with Stonecote because it offers the best of everything! It is a rare find: a 5 1/2 acre equestrian estate in the heart of Louisville! The setting is absolutely beautiful at Stonecote (built c1920) and is a private, country-like retreat. The 50 x 25 ft heated pool with shooting fountains is a great place for the kids to play and the adults to relax on spring and summer evenings. Stonecote feels like a secluded, private park and is a perfect setting for many different occasions. The historic, hometown feel of Louisville makes it a great place to visit…any time of the year.

What makes this estate unique

Stonecote has an amazing flow for entertaining and an enormous, top-rate, gourmet kitchen (making it perfect for fundraising and other catered events), and plenty of room to gather, as well as ample areas to 'get away'. We would know, as we raised our 6 children in this home. :)

A wonderful home!

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful time here! We hosted a luncheon event outside for guest the day prior to our wedding. All of our guest loved the place. Many said they've been to many houses and this was the best one they've ever seen and were very impressed. Lauren and Christine were kind and friendly and helped make our luncheon a success, We definitely recommend this place and hope to be back some day.

This place is amazing!

  • 5 of 5
I have been taking a group of people every year to Louisville for 6 years for a week during the summer. I try to find a house that is comfortable and want to out do the previous years houses for the individuals. Well I will look no further because this is absolutely our favorite and hope to rent for years to come! When I have rented some older homes, I have found them to be dusty, an odor and the heating and air are not the best. NOT this place!!! The property manager is close to help the guest and she was a joy to work with! The owners and manager were very easy to deal with and simply just want to make you happy. The house is tasteful, spacious, clean and in a wonderful location. No complaints from any of the guests and just full of praise. Thanks for sharing your home and hope to see ya next year!

Wonderful Summer Vacation

  • 5 of 5
We brought our three young children to Stonecote from CA for an extended Summer Vacation. The property was all we hoped for. Spacious grounds, wonderful pool for little ones, and large kitchen and living space for entertaining.
The property manager, Lauren, was attentive to all of our needs. It was nice having her on property to help if/when needed.
The home, while private and quiet, is centrally located to most Louisville attractions.
We highly recommend Stonecote and we hope to visit again.

STONECOTE IS GREAT FOR EXTENDED FAMILIES

  • 5 of 5
My family just completed a 7 day stay at Stonecote Estate. The home was massive and beautiful but still filled with warmth and comfortable style. The Property Manager was outstanding, responsive and supportive and we had a wonderful time in a home that allowed our large family multiple areas to enjoy our time together. The massive kitchen and marble island was the centerpoint for most meal prep and made standing around with a glass of wine the perfect pre meal ritual. The bedrooms were extremely roomy and the beds outstanding. The grounds and pool were great. The owners were also very responsive to anything we needed. Centrally located to a ton of things to do in Louisville. Just a perfect place to spend time with those you love.

Best 4th of July Family Reunion

  • 5 of 5
Stonecote is a beautiful property and we were extremely pleased with our recent stay. The property manager went above and beyond to make sure we were comfortable and that my husband's special needs were met. We all loved the pool area, especially our four young grandchildren. The kitchen is well equipped with just about everything you'd find in your own kitchen, so meals were very easy to prepare. We all loved the huge dining room and eat in kitchen area. Plenty of special spaces to relax and enjoy family. This was the perfect family reunion spot. Lots to see and do in Louisville! We had such a wonderful, relaxing stay, and hope to return again to Louisville and Stonecote!

Family reunion

  • 5 of 5
We rented this house for a family reunion with six families. The house was well appointed, the beds comfortable, the living space huge, and a generous kitchen. Our favorite was summer evenings on the front porch with the beautiful lawn. Thank you for helping us create priceless family memories!
