Located a few blocks from the Ohio river, about two hours northeast of Louisville, this five-bedroom, two-bath Kentucky home was originally a family stable circa 1840. The structure eventually transformed into a Italianate double house in 1880, and much of that era’s regal attributes remain.
But it took a recent renovation to add a bit of Victorian glamor back to the property. Instead of functioning as a duplex as it had in decades past, the home is now a single family residence measuring 2,220 square feet. Italianate features abound, including the home’s boxy shape, tall, pedimented windows, flat roof, and eaves with elaborate brackets.
Inside, the home now features all new windows, doors, electric, plumbing, drywall, flooring, and paint. A completely remodeled kitchen boasts soft close cabinets, granite counters, and an island, and the home’s six fireplaces have been reworked into decorative centerpieces.
