Hike and bike in Cherokee Park's extensive trail system. Visit downtown Louisville (3miles) and Churchill Downs (5.8 miles).

I grew up in the Louisville, Ky as did my father, and my grandfather, who dabbled in photography. My grandfather took the official photos of the Kentucky Derby winners on behalf of the Courier Journal during the 1950’s. Some of those photos are displayed in the apartment.
My husband I are professionals. My first art studio was a block from this carriage house. It was here that I became an active member of the Ky Guild of Artist and Craftsmen and began exhibiting regularly at art fairs and galleries across the region.
We are fond of the Cherokee Triangle and cherish the Victorian nature of the area. Each home has its unique character. The streets are lined with tall graceful trees and broad sidewalks. We love this place. Plus, the location can’t be beat.
Our carriage house well located. It offers the unusual combination of urban living with access to extensive hiking trials. A favorite day at our place starts with a morning stroll to pick up the newspaper and a cup of locally brewed coffee at Heine Brothers. Then continue down the street to browse the adjacent bookstore, boutiques and antique stores that line Bardstown Road. In the afternoon, jog or hike on the tree lined paths in Cherokee Park. At the end of the day enjoy a concert in Willow Park, movie or leisurely dinner. All available within a 2-5 minute walk.
