Property Description

Unique opportunity in Historic Old Louisville on this massive solid brick 2 1/2 story home with over 4000 Sq. Ft. of living space. Great curb appeal with wonderful architectural details including a large covered front porch with beaded board ceiling. The property was extensively renovated in 2015 with 3 HVAC systems, updated plumbing & electric, new gutters and exterior paint, updated baths (with ceramic tile) two updated kitchens (1st & 2nd floors) with granite counters, slate floors & stainless appliances. The property is zoned and could easily function as a duplex but is currently being used as a rental for U of L grad students (Currently leased for $2850 per month with lease expiring on July 31st, 2021). This one has lots of original charm and character with lots of natural millwork, original fireplace mantels, hardwood floors, pocket doors, large rooms and tall ceilings. This property could work wonderfully as an owner-occupied Airbnb with proper permitting, a multi-generational living situation or just a huge home with dual kitchens. There is one full bath on each floor and laundry hook-ups in the unfinished full basement. The rear yard currently offers off street parking for up to 6 cars, however one could build a garage/carriage house on the lot with property approval from the Landmarks Commission. This property is in close proximity to University of Louisville, downtown business and entertainment district, all major interstates along with the Louisville International Airport. The attached photos and virtual tour should allow you to see the great bones and architectural details this property has to offer. The current average utilities with 6 occupants are as follows; LG&E averages approximately $325 per month and the Water/Sewer average approximately $150 every other month. At just $95 per Sq. Ft. this is a great deal with endless potential. Join us on Tuesday, May 4th from 4  6 PM for the first showing of this great property.
