Description

Introducing a rare opportunity to own a piece of Louisville's storied history, the Cold Spring estate stands poised for new owners to write its next chapter. Built in 1867 by the distinguished Speed family, this historic home is nestled on 6.7+ serene, rolling acres in the heart of the Highlands, adjacent to Cherokee Park. The in-progress renovation awaits your personal touch, transforming this timeless property into a perfect blend of classic charm and contemporary luxury. The elegant main house retains many of its original features and architectural details, including 12-foot ceilings, carved wood and marble mantles, and a graceful turned staircase - all longing to be restored to their former splendor. Expertly brought into the 21st century, the home has been outfitted with all-new electrical and plumbing systems, new Zeluck windows, a roof, insulation, state-of-the-art geothermal heating and cooling, and a complete fire sprinkler system. A striking addition on the main floor showcases a custom curved-glass curtain wall encasing a poured concrete rotunda  an exceptional space for entertaining or a tranquil solarium to bask in the surrounding natural beauty. An elevator shaft has been framed, extending from the lower level to the second floor. In total, the main house offers approximately 10,305 square feet of space on the first and second floors, with another 2,700 square feet in the lower level, presently designed for a bar, media room/theater, and living area. Outside, the estate is adorned with mature gardens, elegant ponds, fountains, and acres of tree-lined grounds. A short walk from the main house leads to the exquisite French Provincial-style carriage house, originally constructed in 1911 and expanded and renovated in 2018. The spacious first floor, encompassing approximately 1,375 square feet, features a three-car garage, a well-appointed catering kitchen, pantry, and full bath. A private entrance guides you upstairs to a beautifully finished, 1,760 square-foot second floor, complete with imported pine floors, two large bedrooms, a fully-equipped kitchen with dining area, laundry, and a spacious living room boasting expansive floor-to-ceiling Tischler windows. Architectural and engineering drawings are available, detailing the main house and carriage house renovations and additions, as well as site utilities and grounds. The labor-intensive portion of this renovation is complete, leaving the enjoyable task of selecting distinctive finishes to personalize the space. Cold Spring estate presents a one-of-a-kind opportunity to carry a piece of Louisville's rich past into the future, offering private grounds in the heart of town, historic allure, and modernized infrastructure. Don't miss this chance to make the Cold Spring estate your own - schedule a private showing today and envision the possibilities.
