Just off of Lexington Road and Cannons Lane, a Saint Matthews bungalow awaits a new owner. Recent renovations have opened the dining, kitchen, and family room, and transformed the basement into incredible live/work space!
Walk into a front living room with shiplap fireplace wall, original hardwood floors, and access to a cute, covered front porch. Hardwoods continue into the dining room, where formal moldings and wainscoting combine with a modern farmhouse light fixture, creating an entertaining space appropriate for both formal holiday dinners, as well as pizza and game nights. A 2020 renovation opened this room to the kitchen, adding butcher block bar seating. Kitchen now feels open and connected to both the dining area as well as to the connected family room and adjacent covered, screened porch (where the owners love the breezy Spring and Summer evenings and the outdoor tv hook up).
Upstairs, the primary suite has undergone a few facelifts of it’s own- Natural wood accent walls, wall-mounted sconces, window seat, and closet systems make this hideaway functional and cozy, while the en suite bath provides a lovely spot to start the day. An all-marble shower with corner shelf and skylight (with new privacy shade) and heated floors make getting ready for work or for bedtime a lovely experience. Single vanity and creative in-wall storage assure enough space for even the most particular product lover. A second bedroom on this floor feels like a treehouse retreat, with window overlooking the rear yard, and hidden desk area. A third bedroom, located on the first floor overlooking the covered front porch, as well as a well-appointed hall bath round out the above-grade living areas.
In the basement, though, there’s even more room to stretch out- a 2018 complete renovation in this space resulted in a comfortable new living area. Spray foam insulation and new windows keep the temperature comfortable year-round. A full bathroom with shower comes in handy when working from home in this space, or offers incredible convenience for any guests that use this as a private area.
Vintage charm and open living space, with easy access to I-64 via Cannons Lane. Conveniently close to the green space at Seneca Park, as well as to the shops and restaurants in downtown Saint Matthews and along the Frankfort Avenue corridor. With one of the most central locations in the East-Central suburbs, this is truly a home where convenience meets comfort.
