Here is your chance to own a remarkable piece of Louisville history, ''Barnard Hall''! Designed by noted architects William Dodd and Kenneth McDonald of McDonald & Dodd for Louis Seelbach (of Seelbach Hotel fame), this sparkling jewel is a landmark home dating from 1910-1914, yet lives easily and beautifully for today! The Seelbach house was included in the first exhibition of the American Institute of Architects in Louisville in 1912. Dodd also designed homes for Alfred Brandeis and William Belknap. This spectacular Beaux Arts offering includes the original carriage house and parcel(with 3-4 car garage underneath), which is an architectural jewel box on its own. There is a separately accessed efficiency apartment with deluxe new bathroom and kitchenette. This combination could be ideal for an extended family, live/work or bed and breakfast situation - or for anyone who appreciates the finest craftsmanship from days gone by! The possibilities are endless! No expense was spared in its complete renovation by the present owners as they brought it up to date and restored it to its former glory! You are in for a rare treat, a true value, and will be awestruck by the plaster designs, millwork and quality of materials in this fortress of a home!
