Description / Remarks
1626 is a Victoria jewel on millionaire's row in Historic Old Louisville just blocks from the Speed Museum, a museum of lots of world class artwork jewels. Pristine inside and out! Check out the detail in the wood and paint work inside and out. Restored and renovated from top to bottom with replicated and original features. You won't see many custom plaster designed ceilings details with Victorian colors on the features. Working pocket doors, stunning fireplace mantels, sparkling oak floors and you enter through a custom designed 4 panel leaded glass door off the front porch. Unlike many Victorian homes, you have many closets, built cabinetry and natural light. With a large number of rooms, you will discover some cozy spaces like the rear setting room with the 2nd staircase, a bar area, access to the basement and open to the cherry kitchen complete with recent stainless appliances. A separate breakfast room has French doors opening to a small porch in a lushly planted yard complete with water feature, patio and white privacy fencing. For those gardeners, you'll find a complete bath just off the kitchen. The lower level (basement) has the laundry, an outside entrance and has been used as a workshop during the renovation plus the Christmas storage room. Formal rooms are elegant, spacious and loaded with natural woodwork. The front curved staircase is oak and has period newel post lighting. Upstairs you will find the primary bedroom area in 3 rooms with a showcase bath of two pedestal sinks, slipper tub and glass enclosed shower. The sitting room has a fireplace mantel and oak floors and connects to the bedroom which has crown molding and a walk-in closet with south facing windows in the bay area. The other portions of the 2nd floor have a bedroom with attached bath and multi-purpose rooms. Today we work at home and originally these were probably storage areas but today we have offices, dressing rooms or craft areas. The 3rd floor has been recently refinished to 2 bedrooms, a full bath with original cedar built in closet and a storage area. Lots of interesting vaults and ceiling angles with refinished pine floors. There are 4 heating systems, 3 air systems and with up to date maintenance on all. The 2-car garage shares a wall with the neighbors which was done in the 30s and gives the yard a custom look with an extra storage shed. You will have to wait to see the roses and daylilies in full bloom. It's special in this Century old Historic Neighborhood!
