Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: I was born and raised here in this beautiful town and I am a fourth generation Louisvillian. I have seen it change from just a little river town into a very progressive urban city. I moved away when I was 18 to go to college in Tucson, Arizona and did quite a bit of traveling after graduating in 2003. I moved back home to be near my family in 2010 and started a lease to own contract on my home that is now on the vacation rental site. I was having some financial difficulty, so I decided to try to rent my guesthouse on VRBO in 2012. It went very well and when I finally uprooted permanently from Tucson, AZ, I sold my home there and decided to buy a home that was a little larger just 2 miles down the street from this home so I could have more room for my family to visit and stay.

Why the Owner Chose Merriwether, Louisville, KY, USA:
This property was a dream come true for me when I moved back. My good friend wanted to sell and I was in the market. I love this location because it is so close to everything and perfect for getting on and off the highway which is really awesome. Location, location, location. I am walking distance to the University of Louisville and just on the edge of two great neighborhoods; Old Louisville and Germantown. I loved this home for the years I lived in it. It is really cozy and has a great front and back yard with private parking.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION, close to everything but perfect for to get a real Louisville neighborhood experience!
