Near Lexington Road and Frankfort Avenue, an original 1930’s cottage on Macon Avenue is available for a new owner.
Step inside to home’s inviting entry, where vintage details like arched doorways combine with craftsman-style woodwork. To the left, the living room centers around original painted stone fireplace, which is flanked by two front-facing windows. Gleaming hardwood floors lead from this cozy area into an open and bright kitchen. Truly the heart of this home, the kitchen and dining room combine to create a large space worthy of both holiday gatherings and weeknight homework time, thanks to a 2015/2016 renovation. Subway tile detail, honed counters, and modern lighting bring the function and style of today. A charming glass door leads the way to a breezy sunroom. Rear door here opens to a generously-sized deck and into the fenced backyard. A powder room rounds out the space on the first floor.
Upstairs, painted floors and board and batten wainscoting lend a light feeling to three sizable bedrooms, all with ceiling fans and 8’ ceilings. In the full bath, original porcelain tile lends an air of tradition. New vanity and recently re-glazed tub combine with an enormous storage closet here to provide the convenience and comfort of present-day. Detached two-car garage and unfinished basement offer ample storage.
Easy access to I-64 and the Watterson, and a stone’s throw from Seneca Park and the shopping and restaurants in downtown Saint Matthews and along the Frankfort Avenue corridor. This is truly a home that will charm owners and guests alike.
