Property Description

Own part of Louisville history! Known as the Hegewald House this home is reportedly one of the first houses awarded the Historic Structure Plaque by the Louisville Landmarks Commission. This fully renovated Victorian mansion offers luxury modern amenities while keeping the taste of the original home. As you walk up to the front door, you will notice the handmade Bevolo gas lamp. These gas lamps are a rare find in the Old Louisville Neighborhood. You will be in awe as you open the front door into the foyer and notice the original in-laid oak floors, the detailed millwork, and the grand main staircase. There are 10 decorative fireplaces throughout the house, and all of the doors and windows have been restored and are fully functional with custom cellular blinds. The kitchen is a chef's dream and perfect for someone who loves to cook. It features leathered granite countertops with a 10' center eating bar, a 60" Wolf gas range, 6 dual stack burners/infrared dual griddle/two 30" gas convection ovens, 60" Wolf hood, a pot filler, separate built-in refrigerator and freezer, dual dishwashers, and beautiful cabinetry. The false drawer in front of the prep sink has a switch that powers a hidden door in the kitchen floor revealing a spiral staircase made with handmade heart pine treads reclaimed wood from the house, leading down to the 650-bottle wine cellar. There is a half bathroom off the sitting room which looks out into the backyard where there is a 2.5 car garage. Enjoy a refreshing beverage in the living room, before heading over to the dining room where you will find beautiful stained-glass windows flanked over the decorative fireplace. This sets the mood for a nice sit-down dinner party. The second floor is where the master suite is located, and it has one of the most luxurious bathrooms you will ever see. Dual cast iron slipper tubs, dual showers with 4 adjustable body sprayers, and a double metal wash stand with a marble top.
