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. :)

Perfect home for our occasion!

  • of 5

My family stayed at Stonecote for a wedding event, and this home was perfect! Everything we did was in downtown Louisville, so the location was great. It was so nice for the kids to have a place to play, the adults to have a place to visit and relax and for all of us to have a place to share a meal. I would definitely stay here again! Hopefully next time it won't be in the middle of winter and we can enjoy the swimming pool and outside porches!

Family lodging for Memorial Service

  • 5 of 5

We used Stonecote Estate for out of town family lodging and as our "home" during our a memorial service for our parents. At Christina's suggestion we used Valu Market home delivery to pre-stock the refrigerator and local catering for our other meals. Lauren worked with us so that our early and late arriving guests flight schedules were accommodated. She also offerred to distribute any leftover food to charity. The facilities were perfect for our family needs to gather or have privacy and personal space for a broad range of ages and needs. Our group of children, grandchildren and great grandchildren of the deceased felt at home! In addition to the memorial service and family activities, we were able to visit the Louisville Slugger Bat Factory and Churchill Downs.

Birthday Party in Louisville, KY a HUGE SUCCESS!

  • 5 of 5

House was amazing! Clean, spacious, accommodated 20 people very nicely. We loved the kitchen and huge dining room (our family spent lots of time in the dining room eating and playing games) It was a central spot for site seeing Louisville. Within minutes you were in downtown. Churchill Downs was 15 min away. We were able to walk to a beautiful park and hike through it each morning. We had a wonderful time, and would highly recommend it for future visits to Louisville.

Stonecote....Great Wedding Weekend!!!

  • 5 of 5

When our son and his soon to be bride set their wedding location at the Gheen Foundation in Louisville, we knew that our family would be spending a few nights in Louisville. We have rented thru VRBO for many years, so I thought that I would just see if it was possible to find a house to rent that could accommodate out entire family instead of several rooms at a motel!!!


This home provided us with all that we needed....rooms for all of our family to stay, including grandparents. The additional room in the pool house allowed part of the wedding party to stay with us also. We had the rehearsal dinner catered... those preparing the food raved about the room that they had to work in.

We had close to 40 people at the rehearsal dinner and everyone was in awe of the house...and what a great idea to have the meal there instead of a restaurant! There was plenty of room for everyone to sit and enjoy the meal and hang around afterward.

The grandkids enjoyed.. no..they loved the pool!!! They also thought that it was really cool that there was 3 different sets of stairs to get upstairs!!!

We had an amazing time at only negative would be that I wish I could have stayed one more night!!!!

Christina was great to work with...we were even able to tour the home before booking which was a plus.

Lauren the Property Manager was a great asset. She was there at check in and gave a tour of the home, pointing our all the things we needed to know. At different times I would text her asking a question and she was quick to answer. Our grandson left his "silky", (his blanket that he sleeps with every night) and Lauren found it for us and mailed it to him.

Our time here was a blessing. So glad that we were able to spend our "wedding weekend" here. Would we return...ABSOLUTELY!!
