There are some615 East Washington St things that just can’t be recreated. The architectural details and character found in historic homes in downtown Louisville are a prime example. Although it can be a bit of a challenge to uncover a turn of the century Louisville home with most of the original architectural details intact, this cool property proves that finding a residence with character and modern conveniences could be the best of both worlds. 

NULU Kitchen

Situated at 615 East Washington St in the trendy NULU district of downtown is a one of a kind jewel. This all brick 2 story traditional home is everything but traditional inside. Featured in several local magazines and publications, this home makes a statement. The custom kitchen far exceeds your typical high end Louisville kitchen with a major “wow” factor from the moment you step into the room. Entertaining is a must with beautiful marble counter tops and distinctive awe inspiring floor to ceiling tile work that is a conversation piece. The industrial refrigerator, Bertizonni gas range, dual sinks, specialty lighting and radiant heat floors make this piece of Louisville real estate fit for any gourmet chef.


Whether this Louisville building is an office, a primary residence or a work/live, the original wood floors, trim work, transom windows and the beautiful wood staircase are a few of the details that make this property a one of a kind. The building is zoned C-1. The majority of the first floor is currently utilized as the showroom for Buena Vista Designs. These rooms could function for a variety of businesses or could easily be slightly reconfigured to function once again as a traditional Louisville residence. The upper floor is a huge open space that has flexibility in floor plan with 2 fireplaces and floor to ceiling exposed brick walls. Recently used as a yoga studio, this space offers a calm inviting feel.


Stepping outside this Louisville home, an urban oasis greets you in the back yard. While the front of the building reminds you of the home’s history with soaring double wood doors that welcome visitors to the front stoop, the huge windows, intricate trim work and bricks from generations ago are just a few details that can be appreciated by old home lovers everywhere. 


This building’s architecture is only one of its attractive qualities. The hip and happening NULU neighborhood has a lot to offer in its own right. NULU is a Louisville neighborhood known as the blend of New & Louisville (seems pretty obvious:)). NULU is snugly located east of traditional downtown Louisville and west of Highlands merging the popular older neighborhoods of Butchertown and Pheonix Hill. This area is considered a very walk able district with restaurants, trendy shops and entertainment within blocks in every direction. Enjoy a game at Louisville Slugger Field or The YUM Center or spend an afternoon at Waterfront Park. A couple of favorite spots to grab a bite to eat or a drink in the area are Toast on Market, Against the Grain Brewery and Please & Thank You coffee shop. Get out and enjoy one of Louisville most rising neighbors.
