1811 Shelbyville Rd Open House

1811 Shelbyville Road in the Elk Creek area of Taylorsville, KY has been on the market for a while.  Our sellers have found another home nearby that is calling their name. We had discussions in the past on what could be done to sell their house and price has come up several times. So now, they are serious and have had a 10% price reduction.  This was a great home that sold in 58 days.  Contact the Hollinden Team today to see how we can get your home sold.

1811 Shelbyville Road Elk Creek Area

The last weekend in April is a big push for open houses nationwide from the National Association of Realtors® (NAR).  With this large price reduction and the big weekend of open houses made this a no-brainer.  So, we welcome you to our featured Open House from The Hollinden Team.

This home is set apart as it is fairly new and modern sitting on over 1.5 acres.  The curb appeal is great as it is architecturally interesting and not a square box. The first thing that you notice is how open the floor plan is and the cathedral ceiling.  The kitchen has been recently remodeled and is a sight to behold. Cherry cabinets and quartz countertops give this modern kitchen some pizzazz!  The dining room is right off the kitchen and is illuminated with natural daylight from 6 windows. The great room completes this side of the house and it leads onto the deck with its panoramic view.

On the first floor is a luxurious master bedroom and master bath suite.  They have not one, but two walk in closets. Finishing this side of the house is a large laundry room with ceramic tile floors.

The bottom floor houses the three bedrooms along with the family room and entry into the huge attached garage.  One unique feature of this garage is the cabinets from the kitchen remodel have been installed here.  On this floor you will also find a nice patio for some quiet entertaining.

We invite you to come by our open house on April 29th. If you can’t make it, contact Tim Hollinden with The Hollinden Team and he will arrange your own private showing.  If you would rather start your search on your own, feel free to use the Advance Search Tools of our Louisville MLS to find other homes for sale. Or, if you know the area desired, search for homes using a map with our Map Search Tools.


550 Watkins Glen Way

 505 Watkins Glen Way in Taylorsville, KY is our newest listing and a bit of a surprise.  Before I went, I looked up the price history to see what they had paid and the features of their home at that time.  My clients told me that they had made several changes; they were understating their work.  This was a great home that sold in 7 days.  Contact the Hollinden Team today to see how we can get your home sold.

Curb appeal of a home is always important and this one did not disappoint.  They have spent $5,000 on landscaping and it shows.  They defined their lot lines with evergreens and planted several fruit trees.  I can just imagine how the place will look in a few years with some growth on the evergreens and peaches hanging from the trees.

 Great Room at 550 Watkins Glen Way

As I entered the home, I could see that the homeowners had good taste in decorating and paint colors.  I asked if the carpet was new and was told that it is less than a year old.  I then turned and looked at the kitchen and was blown away. They have completely remodeled the kitchen with new laminate flooring, light fixtures, granite countertops, and Stainless Steel appliances.  We are talking some major bucks here.

 This house was also unusual as it had 4 large bedrooms and 3 full baths. The walkout basement was finished and quite the retreat.  The bedroom in the basement is perfect for the teenager looking for a little privacy from the rest of the family.

I don’t think that you will find a nicer home for the money than you will find at 550 Watkins Glen in Taylorsville.

If you are looking in the Elk Creek, KY area, you owe it to yourself to take a look.  Give Tim Hollinden with The Hollinden Team to set up with your own private showing.  If you would like to see how this home compares with other homes for sale in Taylorsville, we have a custom search set up for you.

The Dobbs Team first Flip

Steve Dobbs has worked with several buyers for investment homes in the Louisville area and we have scored some really good deals for our investors.  We had one of our remodeling experts call about a house in Highgate Springs that needed a lot of work.  We did a little homework on the Jefferson County PVA site and the Louisville MLS to learn about the neighborhood of Highgate Springs. Jo and I met the owners at the property to check it out.

We knew a little history of the property as the current owners bought it in 1965 and lived there for years.  They moved away and decided to rent the property.  A property management company was hired to look over the affairs of this house.   The renter vacated after several years of renting.  When the sellers got the keys back, they were shocked at the condition of their home.  Many years of neglect had taken its toll.

The bright spot was that it was an all brick home, it had a full basement, and it was in Highgate Springs.  The negatives were the condition of a home built in 1956.  Original windows, furnace, and linoleum flooring had exceeded their useful life.  There was carpet over the hardwood floors in the living room soaked with dog urine.  The deck was rotten and the back yard overgrown.  You get the picture.

We spent about 10 minutes looking at the house and made an offer on the house.  The sellers wanted a few days to think about our offer and see if anyone else would possibly pay more.  They accepted our offer and we closed 3 days later.

Jo and I have worked on a few houses in our lifetime, but this is the first that we have purchased strictly as an investment.  This is our biggest challenge to date and we are using several people to reach our goals.  We will keep you updated on how Steve Dobbs moves on this.  If you have any questions about buying or selling an investment property in Louisville KY, contact The Hollinden Team.
