Lovers of significant historic properties, please take note: The Taylor-Herr House is an extraordinarily well-preserved 18th century home, with the original structure built circa 1792 by Richard Taylor. Taylor, a Revolutionary War Soldier and Kentucky Pioneer, was the father of President Zachary Taylor. Subsequent owners John and Elizabeth Rudy Herr built a substantial addition circa 1820. It has been lovingly cared for since 1972 by a one owner family absolutely dedicated to preserving the home's integrity. This property is truly a blank canvas, the house essentially frozen in time. The respectful owners upgraded and carefully maintained the essentials (roof, copper gutters, electrical, structural, oil heat), raised a family, and lived there with relish. And, importantly, "they did no harm". This home is authentic. The Taylor-Herr House is located in Windy Hills, a highly desirable area of Louisville, convenient to the Brownsboro Rd. corridor. Warm and welcoming, the generous scale and details of each of the wonderful rooms downstairs - parlor, formal dining room, an informal dining room or family room, and a huge kitchen full of potential - and the 4 bedrooms upstairs, will inspire. There are 2.5 baths. The 4170 sqft are ready for the new owner's imagination. The house is situated on a peaceful, private, approximate 3/4 acre flat lot. Magnificent original windows, moldings, floors, doors, hardware, etc. are featured throughout, and the original covered porch offers ample outdoor living space. The full unfinished basement and the sizable unfinished attic are an added bonus for any transformation a new owner desires. Truly a once in a lifetime opportunity to acquire and nurture a prominent Louisville historic treasure. This home is on the National Register and is a designated Local Landmark.
