Built in the 1830s by prominent Louisville citizen and dry goods merchant David Chambers, Selema Hall is a restored plantation home with details befitting its antebellum roots: a grand central staircase ascending from the entrance hall, formal rooms with moldings and fireplaces, a master suite with an adjoining dressing room, and a pine-paneled library. The current furnishings may not appeal to everyone—four-poster beds, leather-tufted lounge chairs, intricately detailed wallpaper (have a look at that bathroom!), and so on—but there's little question about the place's lovely bones. Sporting five bedrooms, six bathrooms, 8,700 square feet of living space, a detached garage, a tea house, a recently added brick terrace, and three lush surrounding acres, Selema Hall, which holds court on the National Register of Historic Places, was listed a month ago for $1.39M.
