This Home of the Week is in Clifton, one of the most historically interesting neighborhoods for Louisville homes.
Named for its hilly location, Clifton sits just barely east of Downtown Louisville—which means a quick commute for working downtown. As you drive through the picture-perfect streetscapes in Clifton, you'll notice several Louisville houses for sale.
You might even be looking for one that is a block from Frankfort Avenue or Pope or Brownsboro Road. Built over a 60 year time span, the homes reflect the unique personality of the area. As Louisville started to expand, some of the first homes were built in Clifton in the 1860’s, and its residents take great pride in the neighborhoods historical value; celebrating with annual festivals like the “Old Fashioned Fourth of July” at the famous Peterson-Dumesnil House and an active preservation society.
Recent additions to the shops on Frankfort Avenue have brought the Downtown trolleys to this suburb! The last Friday of every month, Frankfort Avenue plays host to the Frankfort Avenue Trolley Hop highlighting local Clifton businesses. From trendy boutiques, to upscale thrift shops and art galleries the selection of stores to browse through is constantly expanding. Another bonus to the monthly trolley hop is that it gives you an opportunity to experience all the tastes of Clifton. Restaurants like Shiraz Mediterranean Grill, North End Café, Osaka, Veranese, Café Classico, Grape Leaf, Zen Garden, Bourbon’s Bistro, Volare Italian Ristorante, DiFabio’s Casapela Louisville, The Irish Rover, El Mundo, and Ramiro’s Cantina, are a perfect example of the diverse culture surrounding Frankfort Avenue.
In the middle of this exciting neighborhood sits one of the more unique homes for sale in Louisville, ready for its new owners on quiet Bellaire Avenue. The front porch is perfect for a swing or bench and the driveway allows for plenty of off street parking. Inside, you are greeted with tall windows, beautiful oak floors and an original, tile-hearth encased fireplace. The variety of defined spaces leaves plenty of options for entertaining and the renovated kitchen provides ample elbow room for the seasoned chef. Enjoy upgrades throughout this home like the ceramic tile floor, new gas stove, refrigerator, and dishwasher. Upstairs, the original pine floors add the perfect Clifton-area touch, and it is up here you will find the additional master bed and bath. If you prefer a first floor master, this home has one of those too! The laundry room is conveniently located upstairs as well; with four bedrooms and three baths throughout, this house is great for additional family members and guests!
