This handsome brick Highlands home is located on one of the most desirable and prestigious park side streets in the heart of the Highlands, where one can embrace the Highlands lifestyle with easy accessibility to the Douglass Loop, local restaurants, shopping, and nearby Cherokee Park! Originally a duplex, this home was thoughtfully converted into a single family residence by a previous owner. The home still runs the first and second floors on separate gas and electric meters, giving the option for the new homeowner to transition it back into a duplex, if desired. A wonderful covered front porch graces you and welcomes you inside the stunning stained glass front door with stained glass lights adorning each side. Inside, the generously sized formal living room features beautiful hardwood floors with inlay detail, a gas burning fireplace, and large windows with stained glass transoms. The adjoining sunroom offers gorgeous views of the manicured lawn and mature trees along the boulevard. The formal dining room, with close proximity to the kitchen, makes hosting dinner parties and holidays a breeze. Situated between the dining room and the kitchen, you will find a closet perched under the staircase that serves as a terrific storage area. There are two full bathrooms on the first floor and a bedroom that is currently styled as a home office. One of the first floor bathrooms has a stained glass window and a claw foot tub. The kitchen features gorgeous, exposed brick detailing, stainless steel appliances, granite tiled kitchen countertops, a stained glass window, a wet bar, and bar seating. Beautiful cabinets along the eat-in area in the kitchen offer a place to showcase your favorite collection of bourbon or wine. Down the hall, a private work/study nook offers wonderful privacy to any homeowner needing to work from home. A custom built butler's pantry with floor to ceiling storage provides a useful space for storing food, fine china, and chef's tools. A large den with custom built-in shelves perfect for storing books, DVDs and CDs, and a gas log fireplace surrounded by an ornate wood mantel, sits overlooking the rear yard. A sliding glass door leads to a large deck with recessed hot tub and a gorgeous brick patio. The wide and level lot with alley access has endless opportunities, and could easily accommodate a garage, carriage house, pool, or outdoor kitchen. The second floor is conveniently accessible from either the foyer staircase, or an additional staircase off the dining room. You'll enjoy passing two stained glass windows as you venture up the front staircase to the second floor. A second large family room upstairs features a gas fireplace and adjoining sunroom ideal for an informal living space or media/billiards room. A second floor balcony at the front of the home allows a birds eye view of activity along the boulevard. Two spacious guest bedrooms, with abundant closet space, a full bath, and a spacious and well-appointed laundry room create functional flow for modern living. The primary suite provides a true sanctuary for the homeowner, with a gas burning fireplace with ornate wood mantel surround, two huge walk-in closets plus a third additional closet, and a private, ensuite bathroom with a tile shower with glass surround and a custom built-in linen closet. A spacious third floor apartment showcases a bedroom with a large walk-in closet, a living room with numerous skylights that allow for natural light, a full bathroom, and an efficiently designed kitchen create a cozy space for long term visitors or as a potential income producing short term or long- term rental. This apartment is easily accessed through a fully enclosed staircase and without the need to enter the main areas of the home, allowing privacy for the homeowner and tenant. With just over 1400 square feet of unfinished space in the home's basement with three additional closets and a carpenter's room add to the home's plentiful storage options. Other notable features of this home include an economical, environmentally friendly, and energy efficient geothermal heating and cooling system, a central vacuum system, and an impressive stamped concrete driveway that provides wonderful off-street parking for you and your guests. The home has a garage area that would require modifications to the deck in order for garage to be accessible. This wonderful home is located just minutes away from downtown, Bardstown Road, Cherokee Park, Seneca Park, fine dining at amazing local restaurants, shopping, numerous farmer's markets, and many options for entertainment.
