Another great deal! This home has some interesting features! Some features had me scratching my head. This home was built in 1850. It is located in Louisville, Kentucky. The home features pretty hardwood floors, crown molding, baseboards, ceiling medallions and pocket doors with original hardware. The home has tall ceilings and wainscoting. I would get rid of the newer tile around the fireplaces. The mantels are original. Four bedrooms, two bathrooms and 2,590 square feet. $147,900

From the Zillow listing:


Welcome to 3135 Northwestern Parkway! This home is a circa 1850 solid brick structure of Italianate design. It was constructed during the steamboat era and its understated elegance reflects that time period. The spacious rooms, high ceilings and original, beautiful doors and woodwork have sheltered many families and histories over the decades. With its old-world charm combined with modern amenities, it is well on the way to becoming a unique showpiece in the historic Portland neighborhood. Upon entering this home you will walk in to see the large staircase leading to the 2nd floor. Sellers have started the process of bringing this back to its original charm.Behind the staircase you have a half bath. As you walk into the first room of the home you will enter the Parlor. This charming space offers a gorgeous gas log fireplace (not hooked up) surrounded with beautiful terra cotta tile work and a cast iron cover. The sellers have had custom Eyebrow Arch Champion windows with deep sills installed & custom blinds in this room as well as new windows in most all other rooms throughout the home, (this room has been used as a bedroom in the past). Next, as you enter through the pocket doors you come to the Family room. This room also offers a beautifully tiled fireplace with working ventless gas logs, refinished natural flooring, crown molding and so much more.. As you continue toward the rear of the home you will see the formal dining area that has an amazing custom made glass door that enters the kitchen area which has new flooring, new windows with deep sills and appliances that will remain. Your next steps will lead you out the rear of the home to your own 3 season room installed by Champion. This offers marble flooring, custom shades and the most amazing view of what soon may be part of the waterfront park. The yard offers plenty of space and you will love the landscaping that will bloom in the spring. The second floor of the home offers 3 bedrooms and 1 full bathroom. You will love the beautifully updated full bath with the most amazing tiled walk in shower and all of its controls that it offers, to the heated granite floors. Off of this room you have plenty of space for a nice sz laundry room for your convenience or even an office space would be nice. There is so much more to this home including a 3rd floor that you must come take a look yourself. You could be the next family to enjoy this lovely home and add your personal touch to finish its restoration journey. Come visit and experience a bit of the past and see if you feel the charm of this rare home! PLEASE DO NOT ENTER YARD WITHOUT AN APPOINTMENT DUE TO DOGS…
