    Description

    When Harry Lucas went shopping in the 1890s after the Southern Exposition was dismantled, he bought one of first homes on the renowned Saint James Court, show place of the Old Louisville Historic Preservation District. It was used as a model home for the newly developing neighborhood fashioned after London's most fashionable district, this 3 story rusticated stone structure has a first floor rounded bay as a dominating feature along with w 3 story tower. While the Court as some 35 structures from that era, 1464 has under gone significant changes to meet the lifestyle needs of today's population. The fabulous foyer has an elegant staircase and stained glass plus a pier mirror was added later. It opens to the spacious living room with a curved wall of 4 windows overlooking thesoutheastern quadrant of the court. The original fireplace has been converted to a gas log system to create that old world ambience. The formal dining room was created for fine dining with loads of space for furniture with two windows on either side of another fireplace. The oak floors with detailed boarders flow throughout this home and are sparkling with the light reflection. You can access the cherry kitchen through a pantry walk way or return to the formal foyer with an option for seating under the staircase. Do check out the stained glass interior window which hides the 4 stop elevator which was added in this renovation. The rear hall foyer is a stop along the way with the rear staircase, another pantry, a full bath, the 1st floor elevator entrance and doorway to the remodeled kitchen. Just a few words about the elevator please. It is accessible from the outside of the home and stops at all 3 floors. It a custom design from Thysen Krupp with glass openings to a decorative contemporary wall at the rear, to the outside and 2 clear screen closers to the rear stair case halls on 3 floors. The natural cherry kitchen has an oversized work island with gas cook top and grill plus a prep sink and warming drawer. Double ovens, a microwave , a side by side refrigerator and plenty of drawers are on one side and additional cabinetry includes 2 windows, a sink and dishwasher and oh yes, a large screen tv. Black granite covers all the counter spaces. The breakfast room has two walls of windows with northern exposure to cheery dining and again the oak floors. Just off the kitchen is a screen porch with a 2nd staircase to the rear of the basement where you will find a kitchen for your caterers complete with 2 stoves, a dishwasher, refrigerator, freezer, tv and pantry. The basement is most of the footprint of the home with den, wine storage room, storage/utility room and has concrete floors and limestone walls. All the mechanicals (sewer, water, electric and gas) have been replaced during this ownership. The 2nd floor can be accessed by the formal curving front stair, the smaller double landing rear stairs or the elevator. The tower has a full ceramic bath and is next to an oversized bedroom with 3 windows facing the court and a fireplace mantle. It can be combined with a middle bedroom through a door or this bedroom can be a standalone bedroom or den. The rear of this floor has an incredible dressing room complete with sink, a elaborate walk in closet and another full bath with separate toilet room. You will have light from all directions on the oak floors. The master floor is the entire 3rd floor accessible via elevator or a staircase with custom glass art by Brooke White. The master bedroom overlooks the court and has a custom bed frame built in and a tv on the wall. The sitting room in the tower is immediately off the bedroom and is about 95 square feet. The bath is a treasure accessed through an arched door way and features American Olean San Martino Porcelain floor tile, in the shower and as baseboards. The same glass tile is featured in the doorless shower and in the tub room with a cast iron pedestal soaking tub. Two vanities were custom designed with one having a 17 inch round sink and the other an under mounted hammered copper bowl highlighted with a Honey onyx countertop with under mounted lights for that special affect. Arched passageways lead from the bathroom are to the closet/utility area with icemaker/refrigerator and a Miele stack washer/dryer unit plus green granite counter with a copper sink. This space joins the expansive mahogany closet/storage system and opens to the elevator foyer. The elevator shaft, some 40 foot, was added to the exterior of this home to preserve the integrity of the interior space. This addition made it necessary to create a new roof area with 80 square foot roof-top terrace. The rear court yard was designed with an eastern influence with 5,000 gallon koi pond, martini bar with jade insert, and serenity as a goal. It is ready for entertaining and quiet times in the city. The court yard is enclosed at the rear by the two story carriage house with space for 4 cars and one of the most elaborate apartments ready for fun and guests. It is self-sustaining with equipped kitchen containing black appliances, granite floors and counter tops and with special lighting as a show piece. The living room doubles as a theater room which is equipped with the latest technology for entertainment. A bedroom and bath complete this separate living space. Come take a look at this showplace on the court in Old Louisville where the old world ambience is treasured! Plus the Saint James Court Art Show, voted tops in the country, is in your front yard.
