MLS#: 1550749

1227 Texas Ave

Louisville, KY 40204


1911Year Built

This shotgun home was purchased in August of 2019 and has since gone through extensive interior renovations. The kitchen was taken down to the studs with installation of new soft-close cabinets, fumed oak butcher block counters, white subway tile backsplash, new stainless GE appliances, a range hood vented to the exterior, motion activated sink faucet, and recessed lighting ''color temperature'' from warm to cool. The wall separating the kitchen from the dining/living areas was removed and replaced with an engineered header; this change resulted in better natural lighting and an openness to all three areas. A master bath with shower and dual vanity was added. All of the hardwood flooring was restored throughout the house. All of the walls, ceiling, doors and trim are freshly painted.The second full bathroom has beautiful Bianco Carrara marble flooring in a herringbone pattern. The exterior renovation included rebuilding a masonry retaining wall, fresh concrete sidewalks, and minor stucco repairs to the foundation stem wall which was also repainted. A new high efficiency gas furnace and air conditioner were installed. Beyond the renovation, the home does have an unfinished basement which is a unique feature for Germantown. The large lot does have alley accessed off street parking. The most desirable feature may be the location. The home is a short distance from the Goss Ave Kroger aka Kro-Goss. Additionally, the home is a short distance to all the fun of the Germantown Schnitzelburg commercial corridor. Regarding the history of the home, it was originally part of the Wetterau's Estate Subdivision circa 1911. Local folklore supports the old Germantown baseball concession and equipment storage were located at the rear of the property prior to the development of Germantown Square. All renovation permitting and before pictures are available upon request; schedule your private showing today and see how well this property would be as your next home.
