Built in 1913, all of the amazing workmanship that was customary of the fine homes built along Cherokee Park during that time is still present and beautifully preserved in this historic home. The design elements include intricate inlaid herringbone hardwood floors, unique coffered ceilings, massive pocket doors, leaded glass-stained windows and elaborate moldings and millwork throughout. While it has maintained its historic and classic aesthetic attributes, this three story home is also fully updated according to any homeowners’ standards. The updates include a new kitchen with top of the line Wolf and Thermador appliances, exquisite marble countertops with a matching backsplash, custom cabinetry and elegant new baths throughout.

Each and every room has been updated from floor to ceiling with a careful eye to preserving the integrity of the architecture while also creating a current feel and functionality. In this five bedroom, four and a half bath home, there are spacious closets, light-filled rooms, laundry on both the second and third floors, heated master bath marble floors, Geothermal heating and air and a Control4 Smart Home system.

The residence also includes a fully remodeled three-car carriage house with an apartment above that sits at the back of the property. This prime location along Cherokee Road provides stunning views of the park and the opportunity to enjoy nature or walks to all that Bardstown Road offers. This home gives its owners the unique opportunity to enjoy the timeless elegance of the early 1900s while also enjoying every comfort of modern day luxury. There is not a detail that was missed or a renovation undone on this beautiful Highlands treasure. V
