If owning a piece of history sounds appealing, Louisville real estate has you covered. We found 200+ houses on the market that fit the historical bill — meaning they’re at least 50 years old. Here are five of our historic faves.
Built in 1905, this five-bedroom, four-bath property features 5,700 sqft over three floors on a .9-acre lot. We love the fireplaces in the living and dining rooms + the wraparound benches in the sunroom.
Who says a historic home has to be a house? This one-bedroom, two-bathroom penthouse condo is in the Mercantile Lofts, which was built in 1889. It merges old and new with sweeping views of Derby City’s skyline. We like the open-floor plan, which allows the spacious dining area to flow into the living room and built-in bar.
Built in 1900, this four-bedroom, three-bathroom house has a two-story entry foyer + an original winding staircase and original hardwood flooring. The private backyard — complete with a deck and two-car garage — has us dreaming of summer barbecues.
Arched pass-thrus and a spacious, Bedford stone sunroom are two fun features of this two-bedroom, two-bathroom home that was built in 1929. We especially adore the finished basement, with built-in shelving and a door with direct access to the backyard.
