1860 Victorian

203 S Harrison St
Lebanon, Kentucky 40033

Prominently posted on a corner lot of Harrison Street (right in town)... This iconic home enchants with unparalleled charm as it brilliantly combines the timeless architecture of yesteryear with today's modern conveniences. It is difficult to put the magnificence of this home into words, but we will give it a try.

Inviting you with a warm welcome is the entry foyer that sets the tone and delivers that WOW factor as it displays original hardwood, a rustic light fixture, and a whimsical winding staircase. This is just one of many examples of how the entire home has been wonderfully preserved and showcases its original architecture everywhere you look. Following the grand entrance is the grand room. This area sets the bar for cocktail hour as it is highlighted by an elegant chandelier and ritzy crown molding. This room is also brightened by towering sun-enticing windows with the addition of stain-glass bay windows. The gas-log fireplace has a simple yet charming design that enhances the cozy nature of this room. Beside the fireplace is an ornate display case that is yet another charming quality of the room.

Through the grand room is a fabulous formal dining room. This enormous room can handle a dinner party of almost any size. There are more large bay windows that cascade light into the room and another impressive fireplace to allow for cozy family dinners by the fire. The change in hardwood flooring and floral-patterned ceiling gives this dining room an individualistic twist. Just beyond the dining room is a home office (could also be a bedroom) that you would see in the movies. This remarkable office will make anyone wish they worked from home and make you glad if you do. But that's not all! In this room is a bathroom with incredible originality from the fleur-de-lis patterned floor, to the rustic vanity, to the classic clawfoot tub. In the heart of the home is a cozy living room. This room is in a more private setting making it a great spot for quality time with family. There is more beautiful hardwood and an elaborate fireplace adding this room to the list of great places to unwind in the home.

Behind the living room is the kitchen with another gorgeous fireplace! If a fireplace in the kitchen doesn't impress you then the custom finishes will. The cabinets have contrasting silver handles that match the stainless-steel appliances (commercial cook gas stove, dishwasher, and refrigerator). The layout of these cabinets was brilliantly designed to maximize cabinet space and still leave plenty of room in the kitchen. The quartz countertops pair beautifully with the cabinetry and the elliptical designed backsplash ties everything together. This kitchen has superb natural lighting but additional lighting can be provided by the tetrad of overhead lights centered around a yesteryear light fixture further demonstrating how the home cleverly combines yesteryear with today. Beyond the kitchen is a mudroom that displays more nostalgic charm. There is a rustic basin set up, a laundry room, and is overall a handy space.

The upstairs is where you will find 4 bedrooms and 2 full baths. All of the bedrooms have their own unique qualities to make them their own. The primary bedroom (and all of the upstairs) has gorgeous, dark flooring. This bedroom also has a nifty nook w/ bench seating, a large closet, and 2 street-facing windows for soothing natural lighting. Accompanying this bedroom is a gorgeous bathroom w/ a Jack & Jill vanity and walk-in shower. From this bathroom is another bedroom that could be utilized in many different ways (nursery, play room, office, etc.). On the other side of the upstairs is a landing area that sprawls out to the other 2 bedrooms. Servicing these 2 bedrooms is another Jack & Jill bath w/ a jacuzzi tub.

Outside you have the options of hanging out on the multi-level deck, bricked patio, or watching the world go by on the covered side porch. Last but not least... there is a detached 40 X 32 garage.

"I love the rich history that comes with this home. Knowing that since 1860 this home has only had 4 other owners is amazing. I am so blessed to have called it my own for almost 15 years. Sharing holidays and family get togethers in such a place is just more than I could have ever dreamed of when we took this remodel on. So many things you can learn from years past."
