Welcome to the Queen of the Court! European-style Old Louisville beauty is a rare offering in the country's largest still-standing Victorian neighborhood. Exquisite details on the round, covered front porch offer the perfect spot for outdoor seating while being lulled by the famous Saint James Court fountain. Just inside, white-washed walls and elaborate original moldings combine with the owners' collection of modern art and present day furnishings to create an oasis for a new owner who craves the convenience of family functionality. To the left, a dining room with original stone fireplace is swathed in navy paint, and has large front window overlooking the beauty that is Saint James Court. To the right, a lovely and intimate parlor boasts the same views, along with pocket doors for added privacy and frosted glass on the windows. A soaring mantle here is eye-catching. A leaded glass door leads from the foyer into the home's living space. Built-in storage combines with a marble fireplace surround and gorgeous double rear doors that open to a private oasis of a rear yard. Overhead, a crystal light fixture bounces around the light entering from lead-glass windows on two sides. Easily accessible here is a first floor powder room, and a butler's pantry, adding the convenience of storage to this magnificent 120-year-old home. Though the butler's pantry blossoms the kitchen. Bright white, with plenty of prep and serving space, solid surface countertops, and a glass door that leads to the wisteria-covered patio. Just outside, the rear yard was once a fixture on the Old Louisville Hidden Gems Garden Tour, and is lovingly maintained with an updated irrigation system. Brick walkways, mature landscaping, and a sweet, winding path lead to the detached three-car garage. Back inside, up the entry staircase, with it's arched window and spiral balusters, we find the primary bedroom suite. Large enough for king-sized bedroom furniture and a sitting area, it opens to adjacent bath with stained glass window. A pocket door hides closet space. The second bedroom, currently used as a nursery, overlooks the color-changing trees just outside during Louisville's Fall. Via a large, walk-through closet, this bedroom has access to the hall bath, where some original fixtures mingle with updates of today. An office here has built-in bookcases and a closet of its own. Also here on the second floor, tucked near the rear stairwell, one will find a sunny laundry room, original built-in storage, and access to a private, second floor patio. The third floor finds two more bedrooms, one with exposed brick, and one with pitched ceilings and skylights, both sharing a loft area and a European-style split bath with marble floors. The current owners fell in love with the architecture and character here after a European getaway. Now the lucky new owners, too, can make their home in a piece of Old Louisville history. Southern Living Magazine just named Saint James and Belgravia Courts two of the South's Most Storied Streets. With the famous Saint James Court Art Show just outside during the first weekend in October, easy access to Interstate 65, downtown Louisville, and the University of Louisville campus, the accessibility of this neighborhood cannot be beat, and neither can the beauty of this wonderful Old Louisville mansion.
