1508 S 3rd St

Louisville, KY 40208


1900Year Built

This incredible circa 1890 Neoclassical Center Hall Colonial offers 5786 Sq. Ft. of living space above grade and 2100 Sq. Ft. basement. Incredible architectural details inside and out with the facade accented by white glazed brick and an inviting front porch. Renovation is needed throughout, but the extra tall ceilings, huge rooms, original moldings, hardwood flooring, pocket doors and fireplace mantels are sure to please. The double entry doors lead into the oversized center hall that resembles Gone with The Wind with its incredible split staircase. On the left your will find the banquet size formal dining room which opens to an enormous butler's pantry with original marble counters and floor to ceilingcabinetry. To the right is the immense size living room which opens to a rear sun porch. Behind the center staircase is a full guest bath. There is a large eat-in kitchen at the rear of the home that opens to the back yard. Both the front formal staircase and the rear staircase are intact. Up the grand front staircase which splits and turns back to the center landing where you will find 4 generous bedrooms, 2 full baths, a laundry area and an enclosed 2nd floor sunporch off the rear bedroom. On up the back staircase to the 3rd floor where you will find a mini-kitchen (snack area) along with 3 more bedrooms, a huge family/media room and another full bath. The property is nestled on just under a 1/4-acre lot and has ample room for a large 4-5 car garage / carriage house off the rear alley. This home is going to need attention to roofing, box gutters, cornices, HVAC systems, etc. The 3rd floor plaster and lathe has been gutted and removed and awaits drywall. We feel like the rest of the homes walls and ceilings are in good condition and can be repaired. Beautiful hardwood flooring through out the home will need to be refinished to bring back it's original luster. Fully renovated this home should have a value of somewhere between $750,000 - $850,000 depending the finishes of the renovation. Estimate for cornice, box gutters and front porch repairs obtained at approximately $50,000 by Tom Boone, Old Louisville Specialist & Roof Estimate of approximately $25,000
