Northern Kentucky Homefest 2015: Part 3

Homefest is taking place in Triple Crown again this year. It runs from August 8- 23 and features 5 beautiful homes for you to tour!  Admission is $10 at the show or $8 at area Rempke Markets.

Today I am giving you a tour of “The Rookwood” by Fischer Homes. This 5,445 sq foot ranch home, offers 4 bedrooms plus a study. Decorator-wise it was my favorite home (I’m saving my favorite overall home until last!). The style and finishes were totally how I would style my home with an unlimited budget and massive square footage!


I thought the outside had great curb appeal with all the different roof lines and window styles.

Inside the first thing I noticed were these fantastic lights in the dining room- LOVE. And the floors throughout the first floor were a gorgeous hand scraped hardwood.



The great room offered a wide open plan with the kitchen, living room and eat-in “family dining” spaces. This home, like the Drew Anthony by Drees, also featured a beamed ceiling.




The master bedroom was HUGE with its own sitting area…who actually has time to sit in their bedroom and hang out?!? It was lovely, if not very practical.


The master bathroom was also gorgeous with a very pretty soaking tub and a large double shower.


The best area though, was downstairs. The finished basement offered the 4th bedroom, full bath, large bar and a fabulous theater area. The wall on the left was actually made from bark, like tree bark. It was pretty neat, I wouldn’t use it on a whole house but it gave the basement a warm and cozy feel while still being modern.



Just to the right of the theater area was the bar, like The Jones, the bar might as well be considered a second kitchen. And the peninsula appeared to be done in white washed wood but was actually wallpaper!



This home SOLD for $589,900. That’s it for The Rookwood, isn’t is pretty?
