This is not your grandma's Victorian. If you love the bones of grand, big, old houses but your aesthetic veers more contemporary, you need to see this home, born at the end of the 19th century and re-imagined at the beginning of the 21st. . This sprawling, beautifully maintained home on three floors stars the best of the Gilded Age with its high ceilings, original staircase, stained glass and seven(!) fireplaces - but leaps into the now with architect-designed touches throughout. Rescuing the Lawrence Young House from a period when it was converted to apartments allowed the architect who bought it in 2001 the freedom of a total transformation. That's how an 1894 Victorian comes to have a lavishly large master suite complete with walk-in closet and over-sized bathroom, an eat-in kitchen, and striking contemporary features as well as updated mechanicals and roof. Delightful surprises await; follow the ladder on the third floor to a hide-away loft, or step out the back door to a secret urban garden, featured on the Hidden Treasures Garden Tour. Nowhere but Old Louisville will you find this much space, this much history, this much character  for such an affordable price. This fascinating district minutes from downtown and U of L is ever-evolving and you'll have a front row seat. From the heart of the neighborhood on leafy W. Ormsby, walk to Central Park for a Shakespeare performance, grab a craft beer at Old Louisville Brewery, and start your day with coffee at North Lime Doughnuts (or hit local cult favorite Seafood Lady or indulge in the old school glamour of Buck's restaurant). Fling open your doors for a gathering of new neighborhood friends  these houses were made for entertaining a crowd. Or, thanks to the new windows (a rarity in this historic district!) retreat to the quiet comfort of a corner of this marvelous home. Wherever you are, you're now part of the story of Louisville's most interesting neighborhood.
