Property description

Located in the heart of the city, you won't have to worry about missing a thing on this adventure to Louisville. This 110 year old Victorian 3 bedroom 2.5 bathroom is located in the one of the cities most coveted Historical Preservation Districts, The Cherokee Triangle. A stone's throw from endless restaurants, night-time entertainment, local breweries and gastropubs, eclectic boutiques, and coffee shops, you will be able to leave your car keys at home and get out and about on the town.

Owned by a native plant enthusiast, this house has a front yard of native Kentucky perennials and an edible backyard of organic vegetables and six lovely laying hens that provide fresh eggs every morning! (no roosters!)

3 blocks from Bardstown Road allows this house to be close enough to the fun but just far away to provide some peace and quiet for some much needed R&R during your visit.

Two blocks in a different direction will get you to Cherokee Park, a nationally registered park designed by Central Park's great Fredrick Law Olmstead. Walking paths, hiking trails, rolling hills, and a golf course provide beautiful scenery to make anyone fall in love with the Highlands of Louisville.

Public Transportation allows easy access to visit downtown Louisville, just 10 minutes away. Lots to do, including:
*Churchill Downs and the Kentucky Derby
*Bourbon Distillery Tours

*Waterfront Park
*NuLu - an eclectic area of fine restaurants, unique boutiques, laid back coffee shops, and art galleries.

Besides Cave Hill Cemetery just a few blocks away, Louisville also offers history buffs George Rogers Clark's final resting place, Locust Grove. One mile from there is Zachary Taylor National Cemetery. Just across the river is the geologic gem, The Falls of The Ohio.
Also, Food Magazine rates Louisville one of the ten best food towns in America, specializing in farm to fork cuisine at several close-by locations
