See Historic Style in Old Louisville
Old Louisville is near the UofL campus, and just blocks away from all the culture and fine dining in downtown Louisville. This neighborhood is home to Central Park, duPont Manual High School, even a trendy little pub if you want to grab a drink after work. But the reason people come here is because Old Louisville is a stunningly pretty place to be. To really appreciate this neighborhood, you have to get a look at it.
In spring, Old Louisville is in full bloom. The beautiful landscaping, the budding trees and the sounds of birds create the perfect atmosphere for the turn-of-the-century Victorian homes on every street of the neighborhood. Old Louisville is full of graceful, lavishly embellished brick and stone homes with ivy climbing up the walls and incredible details in every available spot. The homes here have everything you expect: hardwood floors with chandeliers overhead, big fireplaces with winding staircases that lead to rooms with tall windows, crown molding that wraps itself around walls and woodwork that takes the breath away.
For decades, Louisville has taken pride in this historic neighborhood that's full of fountains, public spaces and incredible homes. The houses here have been preserved and updated, and the history of this neighborhood has been maintained even as it's modernized. Old Louisville still has all the beauty of a bygone era, but it's got all the modern features people today need. Pretty soon, you’ll want to live in this stylish neighborhood, too.
