Description

The Space

RACING SILKS CARRIAGE HOUSE was built in 1886, and is located on the grounds of Crystal Springs, a grand Victorian
mansion near the University of Louisville, and about 2 miles north of Churchill Downs, and about a mile south of downtown
Louisville.

It is a beautiful 2 story brick building, with 2 car garage downstairs, and 3 bedrooms, 1 1/2 baths upstairs. It has many period features, including high ceilings, heart pine floors, an exposed brick wall in the kitchen, and original "hay doors" in one bedroom. It is decorated with Kentucky Derby and horse racing memorabilia, some antiques, and other furnishings appropriate for a Victorian home.

The foyer and baths have marble floors, and high quality Kohler fixtures. The kitchen has a gas stove, microwave, dishwasher, and refrigerator, and the dining area has an antique cherry gateleg table that will seat 8. There is a laundry room with washer/dryer, and it has central air and heat.

The bedrooms all have new Tempur-pedic mattresses, with
a queen sized mattress in one bedroom, and doubles in the
other two. One bedroom has an antique brass bed, and
another has an antique cherry bed.

It has AT&T U-verse high speed internet service, and digital
cable TV with over 400 channnels, including sports package,
and a new Sony flat screened TV. There are several I-Pod
and computer work stations.

Available for weekly and monthly rentals only, or for conventions and special events. Email me for Derby rates. Member of Louisville Convention and Visitors Bureau, Professionally managed by Sharon Landrum, Realtor
