    Description

    Step back into time when Max Selliger of Bourbon history in 1888 used all the craftsmen of the time to create this wonderful mansion on Millionaire's Row in Historic Old Louisville. While the restoration efforts since the 90s kept the old-world feel, they created the comforts of the modern era. Even some of the wall decorating was copied in the formal dining room and assists in creating the ambiance of history for today. The sweeping foyer of the Richardsonian Romanesque stone mansion has a Italian marble floor and fanciful fireplace mantle and restored stained glass windows lining a portion of the impressive staircase. The living room has a exceptional period window, fireplace mantle and historic patterned floors which is accessed through over-sized pocket doors.The library is adjacent to the living room and has loads of bookshelves and a period piece wet bar built in. Just across the hall is an oversized dining room with filtered natural light and reproduced stenciled walls from days gone by. The 12 foot ceilings emphasize the space and comfort. The cherry custom kitchen was designed for a B and B with a Viking stove & appropriate hood, dishwasher, refrigerator, microwave and loads of storage. The custom windows give you views to the gardens and offer options for bringing the outside into the home. The 2nd staircase accesses the lower level, currently living quarters with 2 bedrooms, living space and 2 baths, and the 2nd and 3rd floors. The 2nd floor has a huge landing for an office area and 4 bedrooms each with an attached bath. All the fixtures and mechanicals have been replaced along with a commercial heating and cooling system. Each room has a theme and vary in sizes. Internet and phone systems were installed along with energy efficient windows which control heat and sound. The 3rd floor has a sitting room with 2 additional bedrooms and baths plus and abundant storage. The rear courtyard has a fountain, covered porch, patio and is surrounded by a fence and walls. The 2-story carriage house at the rear has parking for 3. The 2nd floor has not been restored. Lush plantings and many entertaining areas are ready for your family and pets. This home has been owner occupied as the Rocking Horse Manor Bed and Breakfast since the mid -1990s. Guests have raved about the condition and quietness with the modern conveniences for today's lifestyles. The downtown arts and business center is just blocks away.
