Description

History abounds in this circa 1896 Victorian Mansion nestled in Old Louisville and adjacent to Central Park which was designed by world famous landscape architect Frederick Law Olmsted. The artistic craftsmanship and tedious attention to detail throughout this home is stunning. Features such as inlaid hardwood floors, 8 fireplaces and soaring windows compliment this 6 bedroom, 4.5 bath mansion. Painstakingly restored to its original elegance 1401 S. 4th will not disappoint! Located on the second floor is the magnificent Principle bedroom suite with 2 walk in closets, a lavish bath with tub, a large shower, a bidet and views of the landscaped yard and pool. Two additional bedrooms and an exquisitely designed library complete the 2nd floor. The third floor offers an oversizebilliards room, another bedroom and a huge walk in closet with custom cabinetry. Stairs leading to the private art studio in the attic can be accessed from the billiard room. The coup de gras is the magnificent chefs kitchen with exquisite custom cabinetry, Viking and Sub Zero appliances, a Miele expresso maker, a huge island and a butlers pantry. Step outdoors to a beautifully landscaped yard full of blooming bushes and perennials. The large pool is the centerpiece for all the hot summer evenings as you gather with guests over cocktails. What a wonderful venue for those long worldly conversations or simply to exhale from a busy day at the office. A 3 car garage and a lovely carriage house with 2 bedrooms and 2 baths is updated and ready for guests, a mother-in-law suite, a teenage hide away or home office. Old Louisville is one of the largest preserved districts of Victorian architecture in the United States. The neighborhood extends more than a mile south from downtown to the University of Louisville's Belknap Campus and contains three distinct National Register Districts. Most of its classic homes are brick, many of them in the Romanesque, Queen Anne, Italianate and Craftsman architectural styles, and the neighborhood boasts the highest concentration of residential homes with stained-glass windows in the U.S. Old Louisville came into existence in the 1870s as "the Southern Extension," one of the city's first suburbs. As many as 260 homes were built between 1883 and 1886 to house the city's wealthiest families. This flurry of building activity was associated with the city's role as host of the Southern Exposition. Much like a World's Fair, the Exposition featured the first public display of Thomas Edison's light bulb in what was billed as the largest artificial lighting display in history, with 4,600 lamps briefly turning the Victorian-era Louisville neighborhood's night into day. Another interesting note, Muhammad Ali and his Wife Lonnie were married in the mansion at 1401 S 4th...This was also the home of former Louisville Mayor, Harvey Sloane.
