About the Property

3 Bed / 2 Full Bath Renovated Cape Cod w/ luxurious Master Suite - St. Matthews

Located in charming, ultra-convenient St. Matthews, this renovated 3 Bedroom, 2 Full Bath Brick Cape Cod is located on a prime street in close proximity to one of Louisville's most renowned restaurant rows, shops, and nightlife. Churchill Downs is about a 15 minute drive from St. Matthews. You simply won't find a better place to unwind after a day at the track whether you go out or stay in.

Our house is a 1940s Cape Cod that has been renovated in the past 6 years. The kitchen is fully functional with fridge, stove, microwave, and dishwasher, granite counters, lots of counter space for its size. Two bedrooms on the first floor & a full bath. The basement is finished with additional entertaining space. It is well-lit, and is very cool on HOT days. The 2nd floor has been expanded and features a luxurious master suite with 2 sitting areas, a queen sized bed, walk-in closet, and deluxe Master Bath w/ double vanity, separate shower & tub.

The home measures about 1,800 square feet above ground + another 550 finished in the basement.

There is a driveway with room for 4 cars, and a spacious backyard.

We love our neighborhood. We can walk to several of Louisville's best restaurants including: Equus (upscale dining) & Jack's Lounge (adjoins Equus offering a great menu in a more casual atmosphere), Cafe Lou Lou (casual), Del Frisco's (Fine steaks), and Havana Rumba (Cuban). There are of course several other great spots nearby, but those are all within a couple of blocks of our home.

Car: Recommended

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: We are a family of 5 living happily in our 3 Bedroom little Cape Cod. It's a trade-off in that our location affords us too many joys to feel the need to move outside the city for more space!

Why the Owner Chose Louisville, KY, USA:
We bought this home for the location & the natural charm that it affords. We purchased it from the original owners' daughter, and we've heavily renovated & expanded it since then.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Walkability is huge these days, and this home affords great walkability. Unbelievable proximity to great restaurants, bars, the Olmsted Parks of Seneca & Cherokee, shopping the St. Matthews Boutiques, and a short drive to downtown, the Ohio River, and more!
