Welcome to 1270 Bassett Avenue. This stunning three-story Victorian home has been beautifully updated over the years while maintaining all of its original style and character. Situated in Cherokee Triangle, this Highlands home is located right in the heart of Louisville. Lovely mature trees and a covered front porch greet you as you walk up to this gorgeous deep blue stucco home. Heading inside, past the custom Honduran Mahogany front doors, brings you into the foyer. You will immediately notice the original oak floors that are throughout the 1st floor. The high ceilings, loads of natural light, and wide doorways give this home an open, bright, and airy feel despite its traditional floor plan. Off the foyer is the formal living room, or parlor, with custom built-in shelving and pocket doors that separate it from the dining room. The formal dining room is highlighted by the brick fireplace, and it also has beautiful leaded glass doors on the side that lead into the kitchen. The back of the dining room opens right into the family room and kitchen. This custom kitchen is every gourmet's dream offering cherry cabinetry, granite countertops, tile backsplash, commercial grade appliances from Wolf and GE including gas stove and double ovens, farm sink, stained glass window, and island with bar seating. Down the hall is a custom built maple wine rack and powder room. This half bath offers a pedestal sink, wainscoting, and stained glass window. Heading upstairs, to the 2nd floor, leads to three spacious bedrooms and a full bath. The 2nd floor has pine flooring throughout. The front right bedroom has a wonderful bay window and front left bedroom has a large window too providing both bedrooms with nice reading spots. The third bedroom is currently being used as an office and it offers more custom built-in shelving and a 2nd fireplace. The spa-like full bath offers a granite topped vanity, oak beveled mirror, tile flooring, tiled walk-in shower with decorative window, and large storage closet. Heading up to the 3rd floor brings you into a fantastic bedroom suite. This suite offers another spacious bedroom with vaulted, wood paneled ceiling, two Velux skylights, and cozy reading nook. The suite's bath offers granite countertops, tile flooring, and enormous two person Mansfield jacuzzi tub. Heading down into the basement leads to the laundry room and unfinished utility and storage room. Finally, open the French doors off the family room and head out into the privacy fenced backyard. This amazing oasis will floor you. The pergola covered deck off the house leads onto the expansive brick patio which is surrounded by bamboo, peonies, yuccas, august lilies, and a mesmerizing koi pond with waterfall. There is even a direct gas line for your outdoor grilling needs. Follow the brick walkway to the end of the yard and you will find a wonderful two car detached garage with cedar walls. A few of the numerous other features of this home include: copper gutters, upgraded 220 amp electric, water heater only 3 years old, and roof that is only 9 years old. Don't miss the chance to own this one-of-a kind gem and schedule a showing today!
