Rare, eclectic offering in historic Butchertown! Built in the latter 1 9th century, this quaint renovated brick shotgun effortlessly balances old world charm and contemporary aesthetics and is a perfect home for entertaining. Guests are greeted by a massive open concept great room with soaring ceilings and original Italianate windows, set on a field of original old-growth hardwood flooring, and bookended by two original wood burning fireplaces. The great room opens into a modern kitchen with exposed brick, open old-growth lumber shelving, butcher block countertops set on Amish cabinetry, and GE Artistry Series appliances featuring iconic mid-century designs. Lounge around in the sunroom overlooking your spacious updated back deck and private gravelscaped backyard, bordered by Russian oak and magnolia trees and tall shrubs affixed to the fencing. Prepare for your night on the town in the updated bathroom with a walk-in shower with custom subway tile, and pick out your outfit from the oversized custom wardrobe in the spacious front bedroom. With over 1 ,305 square feet of finished space, this home can be easily converted into a two-bedroom, as a previous owner removed the original second bedroom to create the central great room. This idyllic urban retreat is located minutes away from the best nightlife, entertainment, and shopping Louisville has to offer: walk to Butchertown and Clifton hotspots Chik'n Mi, Gold Bar, Silver Dollar, and Ostra; take a jog down the Butchertown Greenway, stopping to enjoy the beauty of the Waterfront Botanical Gardens on your way to the Louisville Cyclocross Park, the RiverPark Place Marina, or the Big Four Pedestrian Bridge; or bike to Lynn Family Stadium to catch a Louisville FC match, and celebrate their victories with drinks, dinner, or dancing at High Horse Saloon, PLAY Louisville, TEN20 Craft Brewery, or any number of the other lively bars and restaurants in the Butchertown and Nulu districts. With so many amenities, it's easy to see why homes in Butchertown so rarely become available. Schedule a private showing today to find out for yourself!
