Locust Creek Elevator Demonstration

One of the unique features of our newest listing at 19007 Long Grove Way is that it has an elevator.  Of course, we had to check it out and make sure it works.  I will admit that I did have my cell phone with me just in case something went wrong.

As we made the video, we had repair people doing some touch-ups and a cleaning crew going through the entire house.  It takes a while to clean 31 windows inside and out!

There are 20 Homes for Sale in Locust Creek and only one other has an elevator.  The 20 homes would include 6 that are proposed to be built as Locust Creek is still being developed.  Our home is in the Estates section of Locust Creek.

Locust Creek Foreclosure

Locust Creek Homes  are an exclusive neighborhood of luxury homes in far eastern Jefferson County. One of the newest areas of luxury homes is in “The Estates of Locust Creek” and that is the subject of this article.  Every so often, someone falls behind on their house payments and even luxury homes go into foreclosure.  The latest casualty was at the Jefferson County Commissioner’s sale of July 10th

Locust Creek break in back door

As I drove up to the house the next day, I could see that the rear door was ajar.  It is apparent that there is forced entry by breaking the door jamb. This will cause delays starting with a police report and getting an insurance adjuster to investigate.  I knew then that it was going to take a while to get this house on the market.

Kitchen at 19007 Long Grove Way in Louisville KY

After I opened the door, I see that all of the kitchen appliances are missing.  This house was initially listed at just under a million dollars, so all of the appliances were high end. We ordered new GE appliances from Home Depot including a 36” gas cooktop and a General Electric French door refrigerator made right here in Louisville KY.  While we are on the subject of missing items, I am always amazed at why people would take something as simple as switch plates when they vacate a house.  I don’t have enough fingers and toes to count the number missing.  This is not a big thing, but surely an aggravation.

Elevator at Long Grove Way in Locust Creek

In some of the Louisville Luxury homes, you will see an elevator.  This one did not work, so I called Executive Elevator, and they arranged a visit. It turns out that we needed a new battery charger and batteries to run the electronics.

Feel free to contact Tim Hollinden at 502-429-3866 if you would like more details on this luxury home.  We should have this listed on The Hollinden Team website very soon.  This executive home is located in Louisville MLS area 8.

2405 Tyler Lane

2405 Tyler Lane is conveniently located in the Upper Highlands between Bardstown Road and Taylorsville Road in the city of Kingsley.  Kingsley is within metro Louisville and Strathmoor would be close by.  In 2007, the home was purchased and the updating began.  The hardwood floors were refinished and look absolutely great.  The last bit of updating was caused by a hailstorm in April that has caused some damage to the roof, gutters, etc.  The new owners will receive $20,000 of repair work done that will include a roof with 3-dimensional shingles.  This was a great home that sold in 2 months.  Contact the Hollinden Team today to see how we can get your home sold.

Front of 2405 Tyler Louisville KY

One of the charms in a Highlands home is the landscaping and this one does not disappoint. Flowers and shrubs were tastefully added to the front and rear over time.  Rose of Sharon shrubs at the rear make natural border. The stamped patio is perfect for outdoor grilling and parties.

Fireplace at 2405 Tyler

The fireplace adds a great focal point to the living room.  It was just upgraded to vent-less gas logs this last winter and has never been used.  The kitchen is modern and all of the appliances have been upgraded over time.  The range is unusual as it has a convection oven.  Decorator ceiling fans are spread throughout the house.

Florida Room at 2405 Tyler Louisville KY

In 2008, the screened in porch was removed and replaced with a Florida Room with floor to ceiling windows.  A separate heating and cooling system was added to make this four seasons living.  The guy that laid the slate tile had full artistic control over the floor and did a great job.

We took a video using our Flip camera about 2405 Tyler Lane and posted it to YouTube.  If you are interested in other Highlands Homes for sale, we have a neighborhood search set up on our website.  For those that are looking for a move in ready house in the Highlands, this could be it.

4652 Shenandoah in Louisville

Our newest listing is 4652 Shenandoah Drive in Brooks of Hickory Hollow.  We have found the housing market in the northeastern end of the county to be recovering faster than other parts of Jefferson County and are excited to have this listing. This home appears much larger than it looks from the street as it opens up inside. And, there have been improvements in all areas of the house since the sellers first purchased the house.  The husband is quite the handyman and has done a great job. This home is not currently on the market.  Contact the Hollinden Team about this home’s history and other houses in the area.

4652 Shenandoah Louisville KY front

They purchased the house in late 2006 and started their renovations.  The first thing of consequence was a new roof and eliminating the carpet in 2007.  2008 brought in a new 3-ton A/C unit.  Once the air compressor was installed, they upgraded to new Pella windows.  Both bathrooms were remodeled with ceramic tile floor, vanity tops, and bath surrounds.  They also put whirlpool tubs in both.  Their last update was a new electrical service panel in 2011.

4652 Shenandoah Louisville KY great room

There was some concern about allergies and all of the carpet was removed.  In the great room, you can see the hardwood floors and stone fireplace that has been converted to gas.  The hardwood floor was extended to the first floor master to finish the look.  The entire upstairs has a nice looking laminate floor.

4652 Shenandoah Louisville KY kitchen

Travertine Tiles welcome you on the entry and flow into the kitchen and dining area.  To make the kitchen pop, the countertops were replaced with granite tiles.  The dining area lets of light shine in with its Palladian window.

We made a video of 4652 Shenandoah Drive Louisville listing with our FLIP camera and you can find it on YouTube.  It gives a different look than still pictures.

There are a lot of Open Houses in MLS area 9 each weekend and we have made it easy to see Open Houses in Louisville MLS Area 9.  In Area 9, you will find the Ford Motor Truck plant along with several other businesses.
