About the Property

2 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom

Charming single story, red brick bungalow located 8 minutes from Churchill Downs off historic Eastern Parkway, designed by Central Park architect Frederick Olmsted.

Guests will enjoy the atmosphere of this stylish Germantown home which combines timeless classic and modern chic. Originally built in 1926, the home was updated in 2007 with new air conditioning, electric, and plumbing to combine historic feel with current comforts. Polished tiger stripe wood floors from the World War I era and a crystal lit dining room fill the home with a noticeable elegance. An exposed brick fireplace and traditional built-in cabinets in the living room balance cool sophistication with warm welcome for comfortable indoor relaxation. However, Spring in Louisville will draw guests outside to a tranquil front porch with a wooden swing, a peaceful retreat from a day of race festivities and crowds.

Room accommodations include a master bedroom with a queen Hampton & Rhodes pillow top mattress for a comfy night's sleep. A guest bedroom also provides room to accommodate an additional guest. Closets and more classic built-ins offer plenty of space to hang a complete race week wardrobe. There is even room to safely store a collection of Derby hats.

A fully equipped kitchen with stainless steel appliances complete this home away from home. Any delicious dish is within reach with a 5-burner gas stove, oven, microwave, refrigerator, and Vitamix blender. The local Kroger off Goss Avenue introduces the convenient possibility of a home cooked meal when the trendy local restaurants on Bardstown and Baxter Ave don't make the agenda.

For the active and adventurous, 1323 Lydia is a short 5 minute walk from Clark Park, which has 2 tennis courts, 2 basketball courts, a volleyball net, soccer field, and baseball field. Additionally, for runners looking for access to Louisville's largest recreational park, Eastern Parkway deposits runners directly into Cherokee Park's scenic loop.

Coming in from out of town? 1323 Lydia St is 10 minutes from SDF and 1 block from a TARC bus stop that will take you directly to the race track. Forget the hassles of traffic and parking with close proximity to public transit. Guests will appreciate the convenient access to all the race action with easy escape from the stress of crowds.

Other conveniences include a basement outfitted with a washer & dryer, as well as a ping pong table for those seeking a bit of competition.
