An Old Louisville Beauty
Step into the grandeur of the generations, Old Louisville at her very best. This stunningly beautiful and immaculately maintained home was built in 1894. The house faces west, toward the 17-acre Olmstead designed, Central Park. The views, in all seasons, are spectacular. It is like being in the country except you are in the heart of the city with Central Park's amphitheater featuring performances of Shakespeare, The Louisville Ballet, and Old Louisville Live Concert music in the summer. In the Fall you are within a stroll of The Saint James Art Show. Just down the street is the Speed Art Museum and the house is within an easy commute of the downtown Medical Center and business and cultural districts.
Tall double doors invite you into the elegant entry foyer with inlaid oak floors, a marble fireplace and the beautiful turned staircase with its paneled oak along with a stained-glass window on the first landing. The formal living room features a marble fireplace, inlaid hardwood and sweeping views of the park. The dining room leads from the living room through French doors. This room is large enough for the most formal of dinner parties and carries through the inlaid hardwood floors. There's also a fireplace for those winter nights when a fire adds just the right touch of home.
The recently renovated kitchen features wavy, honed black granite countertops with a large center island custom made cabinets, a Wolf gas stove top, double Bosch electric ovens, Fischer-Paylek double dishwasher drawers and a Liebherr refrigerator/freezer. Adjacent to the kitchen is a family dining room/ office with built-in desk, cupboards and bookshelves. Theirs is also a powder room on the first floor. The second floor includes the master bedroom, library and second bedroom. The master suite has a fireplace, dressing room and bath, including a glass shower along with custom cupboards, laundry drawers and a linen closet. The master suite also has access to the rear porch which over looks the formal gardens of the backyard. The master bedroom, dressing room and library have heart of pine floors. The library has built-in floor to ceiling bookshelves, fireplace and closet. The adjoining guest room also has built in bookcases and a fireplace. Both the library and the guest room face Central Park. The guest room has inlaid oak floors. The second-floor guest bath room features black marble counters with built in cupboards and a tub/ shower.
The third floor has three spacious bedrooms, two of which face Central park. Each bedroom has a fireplace. There's also a full bathroom and a large storage room. There is a formal garden in the rear along with a three-car garage with alley access.
The home's gardens have been featured in four Old Louisville Garden Tours and in 2018 received the Gold Award.
