Year Purchased: 2011
About the owner: The owners, Jim and Ginger Welch, have been married for 45 years and moved to Louisville, Ky in 2011, but still spend some time at their home in California. Jim is President of uDecor, Inc and ProCeilingTiles and Ginger is a retired school teacher, and they love to travel when they get the chance.
Why the Owner Chose Lake Forest, Louisville, KY, USA:
Location, location, location. This property has the best setting of any we looked at in Louisville...that was the major reason why we purchased this home. We purchased Greystone in June 2011 and started renovating immediately. If Greystone is not in your budget plans, they can assist you with many other homes in Louisville in a wide variety of pricing ranges as well. They know you'll love a visit to Louisville, too! They've made it a point to have their homes in great settings to enjoy...and now you, their guests, can too! Email or call for details.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
The setting is absolutely beautiful at Greystone, and feels very private. The 3 acre pond is a draw for Canadian Geese, ducks, Great Blue Heron, deer, turtles, etc. It has the feel of a beautiful private park and is a perfect setting for small weddings and receptions, church retreats, and of course family vacations and reunions. Greystone provides 4 on-site kayaks and a launching dock to enjoy our 3 acre pond, too. And...Louisville has a lot to offer!
