Welcome home to 1509 Rufer Avenue. This updated Historic Highlands home is located just a short walk to the heart of the Bardstown Road entertainment district. The current owners love walking to their favorite coffee shop for a latte, restaurants for a healthy lunch and dinner and evening entertainment like a movie or dinner and drinks with friends. Please look at the aerial view photos and you will see just how close you are to Bardstown Road and Grinstead Dr, but just far enough away to enjoy some peace and quiet on your patio. The sellers believe you will love this historic home and neighborhood just as much as they have.This historic home was built before 1900 and has been updated for modern living while leaving lots of the historic charm these homes offer. When you walk up to this home you will notice the small easily maintained yard with new landscape and a large porch across the front of the home with a fantastic swing to sip on your favorite latte or tea. You can also relax on the side patio in the evenings with a glass of wine or your favorite beverage or have dinner at home Al Fresco.
When you enter this home, you are met with an abundance of natural light from the large windows in the main hallway, the 10ft ceilings that give such a sense of openness and the warm solid hardwood floors that run throughout the home. Just to your left is the large guest room that also features lots of natural and a gorgeous exposed brick fireplace (nonfunctioning). It has a beautifully refinished mantel and period tile surround. Next is the large master suite, it features another gorgeous exposed brick fireplace, refinished mirrored mantel and tile surround, 2 large closets and a private master en suite, which is a rare find in this age and type of home.
In the rear of the home you will love the updated open concept kitchen/living area. The large kitchen has custom upgraded cabinets with gorgeous black granite counter tops, black appliances, and a large island with seating and additional storage. The living room and kitchen are both flooded with warm natural light from all the large windows. The living room features a large area to relax in, exposed brick wall and a door out to the side patio making this a perfect set-up for entertaining. Just off the kitchen is the 2nd full bathroom and there is a 1st floor laundry for your convenience. The last room is the large sunroom that is the full width of the home. It is surround with more large windows and is currently being used as a 2nd work from home office space. The current owner loves to pull up a chair and read her favorite book on a rainy day in this space of serenity for her.
This home is hiding a secret space that's not expected. Lift the trap door near the kitchen island and you will find a workout area and tons of storage in the basement. The seller has had the basement and crawlspace professionally insulated with spray foam and vapor barrier to increase the energy efficiency of this 120+ y/o home and made it his little get away space for him to work out and mediate. Finally, we are out in the back yard where you have a nice sized yard that's easily maintained with space for a small garden and rare 2 off-street parking spaces to keep your vehicles safe. The current owners love this home, but now need to move onto their next adventure in their lives and are excited for the next owner to love this home as much as they have.
