Adorable Bungalow just steps from Bardstown Road! Covered front porch and porch swing beckon on lazy Kentucky mornings, and provide the perfect spot to listen to Louisville’s Spring drizzles. Full glass front door and front-facing window fill the long living room, just inside, with plenty of natural light. To the right, overlooking the front porch, a cozy dining room boasts a new light fixture, and- due to it’s past life as a bedroom- has corner closet that’s perfect for storing linens, china collections, or can serve as a hidden bar. Just ahead, a galley-style kitchen recently received fresh paint, lending a bright and cheery air. White cabinets and light countertops combine with newer stainless appliances and a sweet coffee bar, making this kitchen mightier than it’s size. At the rear of the first floor, a spacious family room has several built-in bookcases and French doors to the rear yard, as well as a side door easily accessible to the one-car detached garage. A half bath and multiple closets in the family room offer option in this space- this could easily be converted into a large primary bedroom suite. A bedroom just off the quiet hallway and full hall bath (with tub/shower combo) round out the first floor.
Upstairs, two loft-like bedrooms offer respite and quiet from the living space below. The first bedroom- walk-through, as is customary with the 1930’s builds so popular in the Highlands- has a fun sleeping feature; a twin-sized Murphy bed. The window here has views to the large rear yard. The second bedroom, accessible through a “hidden” bookcase door, looks over the front yard and onto desirable Winston Avenue.
Fresh paint throughout, new lighting, recent updates, and a spacious basement (with additional half bath) combine for a sweet spot in one of Louisville’s most unique and charismatic neighborhoods. Conveniently located between Assumption High School and the Lakeside Swim Club, with easy access to the Watterson.
