Owner info

Year Purchased: 1995

About the owner: Hi there! I'm a house/all-things-design lover with an occasional bout of electronics/amazon addictive behavior. Love making sure I've played with the lasted home audio, automation, lighting, A/V ... basically anything that can be controlled via my iPhone, iPad or Mac. I'm a serial-entrepreneur and heavy traveler, so love having others enjoy the place while I'm gone. Hope to get to meet soon. By the way, I have an awesome 'team' of folks here in Louisville who are the really smart ones ... so, regardless of my travels or general disorientation, they always make sure the house is clean and guest-ready, yard is looking great; towels are fluffed, coffee's ready for the morning, and guests are always happy.

Why the Owner Chose Cherokee Triangle, Louisville, KY, USA:
Ahhhh, where to begin ... the Carriage House is, for me, an 'escape in the trees.' This spot really has it all. Including beautiful, mature tree-lined streets and alleys, the city's best park and trail system and a couple blocks' walk to the best restaurants, shops, nightclubs and culture the city has to offer. You're also only minutes from downtown, the Ohio River, Churchill Downs and the world's most famous horse race! Plus, be sure to plan to schedule a Distillery Tour ... you can sample bourbon at restaurants within blocks and plan day-trip visits to some of the most famous distilleries such as Maker's Mark, Woodford Reserve and more. The list is too long to mention here, but don't forget to add the Louisville Slugger bat factory, Muhammad Ali Center, Museum Row, Belle of Louisville Steamboat cruise ... just ask us for suggestions or help planning the perfect visit. I've had an amazing response to the venture into sharing my home - and have met some amazing folks in the process. Even those I don't get to meet personally - but who share their great experiences of my place and 'hood are super-rewarding. Our calendar has been pretty busy, so if you're looking at available dates - let me know how I can help you get confirmed. Look forward to talking to you soon - and helping you plan an awesome visit to 'the 'ville.' Bob
