*** Update *** Home is currently under contract
Your search for a home in one of Louisville’s oldest, yet trendiest neighborhoods is over! This Germantown gem, located in the heart of Schnitzelburg, offers the quintessential experience that you would expect from a neighborhood founded in the 1870s by German immigrants and now among the most vibrant and coveted communities in the city.
Typical of that bygone era, this classic camelback style house offers the appeal of a home with history and character, but all the updates and renovations to give it modern comfort and style. New hardwood floors, tastefully exposed brick, fantastic outdoor spaces, and plenty of amenities mean this home won’t be available long! Practical concerns like a high-efficiency HVAC system, all new plumbing and electrical mechanicals, and a complete set of new kitchen appliances mean it’s a steal at just $239,950.
You can easily picture the perfect spring day as you stroll down the sidewalk to find your friends on the inviting front porch of the home that commands the neighborhood from its corner lot. Step inside the beautifully designed front door and into a living area that immediately draws your eye to the timeworn exposed brick and lustrous hardwood floors.
High ceilings and new replacement windows fill the home with natural light as you enter a hallway accentuated by vintage transom doors, tongue-and-groove wainscoting on the walls, and captivating light fixtures—features of the home throughout. Behind the charm of a sliding barn door you’ll find the second bedroom benefiting from the terrific trimwork, exposed brick, and a roomy closet.
At the end of the hallway lies a surprisingly spacious dining room/second living area that connects to the kitchen and the main floor bathroom. The combination of hickory hardwood, old style trim, ample windows, and charming kite-winder steps leading upstairs make this a centerpiece of the home.
The bathroom has an attractive recessed ceramic subway tile bath/shower and original built-in shelving that fits perfectly with the home’s character. The kitchen offers all new matching slate appliances (gas range, dishwasher, refrigerator, microwave) and new tile flooring throughout, but it’s the views that will really captivate you. Whether you’re preparing a meal or just keeping an eye on the kids and pets in the fenced backyard, you will have great sightlines of your outdoor environs.
Upstairs you’ll find more great views of this historic neighborhood from the master bedroom suite, a peaceful retreat with all the great design touches you’ll find elsewhere in the house.
After a great night’s sleep you’re ready to attack the day and there’s no shortage of options in Germantown, one of the best walking neighborhoods around thanks to well-maintained sidewalks and restaurants, coffee shops, groceries, bakeries, and more nearby. Grab brunch at Check’s Café or a nightcap at Monnik Beer Company. Or get your nature fix at the delightful Emerson Park and Community Garden, located on the very same block as this wonderful home. Easy access to I-65 and just 10 minutes away from the heart of downtown means the rest of the city is your oyster as well!
