Description

This shotgun style home shines with the character of its 1883 build while the complete renovation in 2023 infused new life. Thanks to the grand scale of the rooms with 12 foot ceilings, this lives much larger than its 1152 square feet. Exposed brick, original hardwood floors, 2 decorative fireplaces, 8 foot windows in the light-filled living room, new roof and plumbing, and a double lot with big yard, large shed, and off-street parking make the house a dream for the price. This inspired, to-the-studs renovation by a homes & design writer known locally for transforming historic homes has been featured on design site Apartment Therapy for the beautiful and thoughtful touches throughout. Not to be confused with a flip, this is priced according to the level of renovation and finishes, and is still dramatically less expensive than similarly-sized homes in nearby neighborhoods. This is seriously a once-in-a-lifetime chance to have a gorgeous home five minutes from downtown Louisville. Among the updates are: New plumbing throughout, new water heater and ductwork, a roof reconstructed and shingled, floor-to-ceiling brand new everything in the kitchen, including Samsung Bespoke appliances, new tile floor in the back half of the house, a custom bedroom closet, and custom-made millwork inspired by the original trim. The previous owner replaced windows throughout and painted the exterior cherry red. The space is open, light, and airy, but cozy, thanks to the warm color palette and natural materials (this is an LVP free zone!). It makes great use of space with nothing wasted on hallways. The sunny kitchen looks out over the double lot, fenced back yard. An additional building in back also has a new roof. One side offers lots of storage (including the repurposed kitchen cabinets), while the other side was finished by the previous owner and offers potential additional living space, with electric and plumbing in place (not updated). A large driveway allows off-street parking. As a shotgun style home, the layout is a choose your own adventure situation. It's designed now as a one-bedroom with an office and a foyer/mudroom, but the rooms' purposes are up to the new owner and it's been used as a two-bedroom in the past. Portland is a unique neighborhood with a fascinating history that's now home to some of Louisville's coolest spots. You'll be near Kyros and Shippingport breweries, Portal Portland (event venue and art gallery located within a creative compound), and the Riverwalk, and a minute from I-64 where 10-15 minutes takes you nearly anywhere in town.
