This custom farmhouse-style home at The Hamlet in Norton Commons is a Homearama stunner

  • October 7, 2022

The house at 11408 River Beauty Loop is located in The Hamlet, an exclusive Oldham County section of Norton Commons. Built, designed, and furnished by Mason Construction, Libby H Design Studio, and Cherry House Inc., the brand-new, modern farmhouse-style home is one of 10 on the 2022 Homearama tour, an annual Louisville event that showcases custom-built new homes at a single site.

Form and function

“The biggest thing we wanted (to do was) make design selections that reflect (the homeowners’) personality,” Libby Helgeson, of Libby H Design Studio, told The Courier Journal. “Our homeowners have a high value of functionality and how they will use this space.”

She adds that every element of the build — from the audio/visual components to the way the mudroom was designed — prioritized how the home would function for the family.

“I’m really excited that our homeowners will feel at home with finishes and details that are very thoughtful and reflective of their style,” she said.

The newly finished house boasts four bedrooms, four-and-a-half bathrooms, two offices, a bar area, a mudroom, a loft space for lounging, a wraparound porch, an enclosed sunspace, and a bar and recreational area in the finished basement. But Helgeson’s favorite space is the kitchen.
