Property Description

Wanted: new owners to love a gracious Old Louisville home. You can tell when a house has been loved, and this gorgeous, light-filled home shines with the love its recent owners have lavished. Reviving this beauty was a story with several chapters, and the new beginning is ready for you to write. This home strikes a remarkable balance between the grace and integrity of late 19th century architecture and modern necessities. You'll find high ceilings and the ornate craftsmanship of her era (think pocket doors, multiple fireplaces, and intricate woodwork), plus critical features like completely updated electrical, spray foam insulation, and a new roof. Thanks to thoughtfully considered renovations, the spacious kitchen, luxurious master bath, and equally impressive full guest bath manage to be both contemporary and timeless, with high end touches. As you create your own story here, here are some of the things you'll love: Grand but inviting rooms flooded with natural light and abundance of updated lighting; open, and easy-flowing layout rarely found in a Victorian; dreamy owner's suite with glamorous dressing room/closet (complete with two fireplaces!); warm, gleaming, beautifully restored hardwood floors throughout; meticulously restored plaster walls (with craftsmanship by Julius Schnurr & Sons) and contemporary neutral color palette (painted by the esteemed Whitehouse Painters); roomy, sunny, eat-in kitchen with plentiful storage; the oasis of a private back yard with off street parking. If you were born to entertain, this house was born with you in mind, from the sumptuous foyer to the shady back yard with deck, and guests will adore the sprawling third floor quarters. And living in the historic Limerick neighborhood brings the best of Old Louisville along with easy access to downtown and U of L, and the rest of Louisville a quick interstate hop away. A recent resurgence has seen many nearby homes restored to the grandeur of the late 1800s when the best architects designed these stately residences. The tight-knit community enjoys socializing with gatherings at nearby Old Louisville Brewery, and taking advantage of their walking distance to Central Park, North Lime Doughnuts, and the acclaimed restaurants 610 Magnolia and Bar Vetti. Housing prices haven't yet caught up with the tremendous appeal of this neighborhood that locals love as their own hidden gem, so don't miss out on this truly a once in a lifetime opportunity! 1 Year HMS Home Warranty included.
