One Of A Kind Charmer In Anchorage
If you have shopped for a home in the Louisville area, then you have probably at least driven through the quaint and yet distinguished Louisville suburb of Anchorage, Ky. It’s a beautiful postage stamp sized town where they appreciate and even preserve historical homes. You can find a little land with your house or enjoy the benefits of living in a more traditional subdivision. With a newer town center carefully constructed to look of years passed, it perfectly emulates this appealing little city. An awarding winning school, lovely shops and eateries and convenience are just a few perks of this great Louisville neighborhood. Homes are limited and sq footage is at a premium. After all, it’s really a lifestyle, not just another Louisville home for sale.
Just off of the beaten path in Anchorage is a distinct, almost romantic, home. The charm is evident immediately upon stepping onto the huge wrapping front porch that stair steps across the home to provide outdoor access from several rooms. It’s refreshingly obvious that this Louisville residence is a true one of kind dwelling. One can enjoy the comforts of a cottage with the size for a family. Recognized in several local publications, this Louisville home is anything but ordinary. Soaring ceilings in one room with a cozy feel in the next coordinate to create a beautiful unique 5 bedroom home. The cheery living room with a hand painted fireplace welcomes you while the light filled dining room displays a beautiful curved wall of windows with French doors to the covered porch. The eclectic cottage style kitchen features 2 islands and professional grade appliances providing an idyllic environment for any chef. It displays that perfect merriment of modern conveniences while safeguarding some of the home’s architectural character. Views from the kitchen are in every direction. Looking into the spacious great room, you are greeted by an enormous 2 story stone fireplace and the picturesque back yard displays a perfect back drop. The huge open space currently housing the dining room, hearth room and great room offers flexibility in floor plan and provides a superb place to entertain. And the party will definitely continue outside. A spacious screened-in porch greets you to the scenic back yard and a large deck continues from the screened in porch connecting several smaller patio areas. Plenty of mature trees, a sprawling green space and a fire pit to cozy up next to on chilly nights allow this home’s exterior to not be dwarfed by the beauty of the interior.
My personal favorite spot in this residence is the master bedroom. The space isn't large especially for a typical Louisville home in this price range but this owner’s retreat isn’t lacking. The beautiful wood floors carried through much of this home continue into the inviting master suite which once again provides access to the sprawling covered porch. 2 large built-in wardrobes flank each side of the entrance into the master bath repeating that unique charm found throughout this home. The master bathroom matches its attached bedroom with a cozy feel setting it apart from most Louisville homes. This one is definitely all about the details.
The upstairs houses a multipurpose loft and 4 additional bedrooms all with their custom character. Peaked ceilings in one area and cozy little nooks in another make this 2nd floor space full of personality. The additional 1300 square foot of storage space, the finished basement and an attached 3 car garage round out this spectacular home.
Through every twist and turn of this storybook house, one can appreciate all of its unique facets. This dwelling truly is a one of a kind Anchorage charmer. Click here to view this lovely home at 12100 Ridge Road, Anchorage Ky.
