    Description

    This storied Louisville estate is ready for new owners to write the next chapter. Cold Spring presents an opportunity like no other in Louisville: an historic home built in 1867 by the esteemed Speed family; 6.7+ quiet, rolling acres privately situated in the heart of the Highlands, bordering Cherokee Park; and a substantial, in-progress renovation just waiting for finishes to make it your own.The timeless main house retains many of its original features and architectural details, including 12-foot ceilings, carved wood and marble mantles, and an elegant turned staircase - all ready to be restored to their original glory. Bringing the house into the 21st century, the home has been outfitted with all new electrical and plumbing systems, new Zeluck windows, roof, insulation, a state-of-the-art geothermal heating and cooling system and a complete fire sprinkler system. A stunning addition on the main floor features a custom curved-glass curtain wall encasing a poured concrete rotunda - an ideal space for entertaining or as a serene solarium to enjoy the natural beauty outside. An elevator shaft has been framed, running from the lower level to the second floor. In total, the main house boasts approximately 10,305 square feet of space on the first and second floors, with another 2,700 feet in the lower level, which is currently configured for a bar, media room/theater and living space. Located behind the Main House is the pool house, pool and spa in its beginning stages of the design build. Mature gardens, elegant ponds and fountains, and acres of tree-lined grounds await outside. A short stroll from the main house sits the home's French Provincial-style carriage house, originally built in 1911, and expanded and renovated in 2018. The spacious first floor area comprises approximately 1,375 square feet, boasts a three-car garage, finely-appointed catering kitchen, pantry and full bath. A private entrance leads upstairs to an exquisitely-finished, 1,760 square-foot second floor with imported pine floors throughout, two large bedrooms, a fully-equipped kitchen with dining area, laundry, and a large living room featuring expansive floor-to-ceiling Tischler windows. Architectural and engineering drawings are available detailing main house and carriage-house renovations and additions, as well as site utilities and grounds. The hard work of this renovation has been done, and is now ready for the fun part: selecting distinctive finishes to personalize the space. With private grounds in the heart of town, historic character and modernized infrastructure, the Cold Spring estate is a one-of-a-kind opportunity to carry a part of Louisville's past into the future.
