St Matthews / Seneca Park Brick 2 Story Colonial with Fantastic Backyard Home for Sale

St Matthews Seneca Park Brick 2 story Home for Sale


Louisville natives know the Olmstead Park system well, and if you're not from the area, but are in the process of moving here, you'll undoubtedly hear about this incredibly designed system of public parks within the Louisville area soon enough.  Hearing about and knowing about the park system is one thing, but living close enough to walk to one of these picturesque parks is quite another...especially in St Matthews.

Welcome to 712 Homestead Boulevard located steps from Seneca Park in East Louisville's sought after St Matthews neighborhood.  Homestead Boulevard is a quiet street with mature trees, well-kept homes, and unmatched convenience!  This brand new listing is move-in ready.  Let's start with the brick exterior, which keeps maintenance costs to the owner low.  The stately architectural columns have been replaced with a low maintenance material.  Open up the front door and walk into the wide entry foyer with refinished hardwood floors, crown molding, and the stair case to the second floor.  Fresh paint adorns all the walls, and the decor is exquisite.  

From the foyer, drop into the cozy den with built-in bar area and remodeled half bath with granite counter top, modern vanity, and sconce lighting.  From there, walk into the kitchen with charming cabinetry, rich countertops, updated hardward, recessed lighting, and best of all, a breakfast nook made for morning coffee drinking while overlooking the suberbly private and spacious backyard.  The backyard has a large patio landscaped by hedges, a garden area with brick path, plus a sizeable flat play area or room for more gardening beyond that.  While located near all that St Matthews has to offer, there's definitely a serene quality to the backyard that is unique.

There is also a 2 car garage with extra high ceiling and a private entrance from the garage to the 2nd floor bonus room above the garage.  Back inside completing the first floor is a banquet sized formal dining room, a generous sized living room with gas/wood burning fireplace, and of course lots of refinished hardwood and sharp trim.  

The 2nd floor features 4 bedrooms, 2 "Jack & Jill" full baths (one is updated and used as the master), an awesome bonus room that is roughly the size of the footprint of the 2 car garage, and an alcove the current owners use as a desk area.

Below grade, there is a partially finished basement.  This is not your typical St Matthews basement.  Its ceiling height is better than average for St Matthews and there is an outside entrance.

Make this your St Matthews home soon before it's gone!
