1900Year Built

Unique, one-of-a-kind opportunity with this Old Louisville property that offers a 2,017 Sq Ft Main Home with a separate, approx. 650 Sq Ft Cottage House, all on one lot! The wonderfully and fully renovated and restored (2016) circa 1870 2-story main home with southern wrap around porch has been completely rebuilt with a rear addition, and boasts original oak floors with inlaid borders, lots of crown molding with picture rails, and 10.5-11' ceilings. Upon entering the side door of this magnificent home you will be amazed by the high-end quality finishes and clever design created by a fabulous Award Winning Interior Designer. The front room of the home is currently being used as a first-floor bedroom, but was originally designed and could beused as a Formal Living Room and/or office, and includes rich colors, built in shelving, closet, and a gas fireplace option. The center room on the first level offers a more casual living space with working gas fireplace (could be used as a formal dining room) and open access to the stunning kitchen. The eat-in kitchen is spectacular and well laid out opening to a lovely dining area with French doors that lead out to the privacy fenced gardens. Slate flooring, a center island with honed absolute black granite, and white lower cabinetry. The countertops on either side of the kitchen are solid walnut butcher block counters over grey cabinetry. Fully equipped with Bosch gas 5 burner cooktop and custom black vent hood, subway tile back splash with pot filler, black refrigerator, stainless GE Oven and Microwave. There is a hallway at the back of the kitchen with a pantry, utility closet and a large guest half bath with pedestal sink. Up the center staircase with natural brick accent wall (be sure to check out the clever under-and-behind-the-stair storage), you will find the front 2nd floor bedroom w/fireplace, crown molding, picture rail and double door mirrored closet. A full bath off the hallway with tub/shower combination, mosaic tile floors, wainscoting below chair rail, white vanity with medicine cabinet services the front bedroom. You will also find a handsome sitting room with built-in bookcases, a fireplace and grass cloth wall coverings. At the rear of the 2nd floor is the impressive and sizable master ensuite with ceiling fan and Berber carpeting along with a custom white and cream bathroom with double vanities, great cabinet space, Crema Marfil marble, & a walk-in shower. There is also a 7' X 10' walk in closet with room for all your clothes along with a full-size washer and dryer that will remain. Updated electrical, HVAC, plumbing, new windows, a 7 y/o roof & a tankless hot water heater make this home worry free for years. The home has been featured on the American Institute of Architects Home Tour and has won the KY/Southern Ohio (American Society of Interior Designers) Best Residential Home over 2000 Sq. Ft. and "Best in Show." The exterior privacy fenced gardens are breathtaking and there is a rear, graveled patio for Alfresco dining and/or fire pit. Average utilities for the main home average $175/month. This property also includes the enchanting cottage next door at 1209 S 6th St. This adorable cottage has been delightfully renovated and offers approximately 650 Sq. Ft. of cozy living space consisting of a delightful living room with fireplace that's been plumbed for ventless gas logs along with a beautiful West Elm chandelier. There is a nice size bedroom (no closet) in the rear of the home. The eat-in kitchen with slate countertops and a bar style sink along with mini-appliances including dishwasher, refrigerator and microwave, there is also a fireplace in the kitchen that has been plumbed with gas for ventless gas logs. The full bath is charming with slate flooring, wainscoting below chair rail, a refurbished claw foot tub with shower enclosure and wall mounted sink. This property offers a tankless water heater, gas forced air furnace and comes with 3 window AC units. The average LG&E for the cottage property has been $77 per month. The cottage (grandfathered and permited) is currently being used as an Airbnb and rents between $80-115 per night depending upon the day, season and city events. BOTH the Main Home and Cottage House have certificates for Airbnb use and are grandfathered in. This unique Historic Old Louisville property makes for a great investment opportunity. Of course, one could reside in the larger home and use the cottage as an Airbnb, long-term rental, home office studio, or in-law suite. Just blocks from Olmsted's Central Park, North Lime Coffee & Donuts, Adrienne's Bakery, and more.
