1930Year Built

An original Stratton Hammon masterpiece, this Cherokee Gardens home offers the opportunity to own a private piece of Louisville's rich architectural history, featuring Hammon's acclaimed design and millwork and built with hand-hewn stone from an early 1800's Blackacre home in eastern Jefferson County. Exceptionally preserved, this timeless two-story home features refinished hardwood floors, tall ceilings, and intricate trim detail, in addition to countless owner improvements from updating interior light fixtures with luxurious and stylish designs to painstakingly restoring exterior house shutters to their original splendor. Past a columned covered porch with barrel vault entry, guests arrive into a spacious foyer with leaded glass sidelights and rounded transom, arched doorway andAnaglypta wall coverings that continues to the second floor. An elegant formal dining room with bright windows, crown molding, and original ceiling medallion sits to the left of the foyer, with a handsome living room running the length of the house to the right. Featuring restored built-in bookshelves, gas fireplace, and picture window overlooking the English inspired gardens, the living room invites guests further into the home and folds into the cozy family room with French door access to the home's backyard. The first floor continues with a sizable breakfast room and remodeled powder room before opening to the home's eat-in kitchen featuring granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, breakfast bar and convenient dry bar shared with the formal dining room. Accessible by two stairwells, the second floor features an exceptional master suite with spacious bedroom with sitting area, gas fireplace and ample closet storage, as well as a designer master bathroom with soaking tub, glass shower and his-and-her vanities. The second floor is complete with two sizable bedrooms and updated full bath. With an attic ready to be finished and a lower level featuring over 1,300 of additional unfinished square feet, this spacious home will satisfy even the most demanding storage needs. Offering a treed backyard with private patio and dining area with cobblestone from the historic streets of Chicago, traditional pea gravel driveway, restored two-car garage with wooden doors and custom gates with manicured ivied lattice for additional parking, the home's exterior is as impressive as its interior. Preserving a vibrant past while perfecting today's most sought after designs, this home is not to be missed.
