Endless possibilities abound at the historic Louisville Bourbon Inn on Fourth Street! Offered turn-key, one can continue operating the established B&B as it is or perhaps turn the storied mansion back into a single family residence. Regardless of what transpires, there is no doubt that this red brick Victorian is one of Louisville’s jewels. The 9,000 square foot mansion was designed by architect Mason Maury and built in the mid-1880s for Russell Houston, President of the Louisville and Nashville Railroad. It operated for several years as The Louisville Bourbon Inn before Gayle and Herb Warren purchased it and rebranded it into the Louisville Bourbon Inn. This isn’t the first mansion the couple have restored, they received the Louisville Historic League’s award for Historic Preservation in 2001 for their efforts restoring the DuPont Mansion across the street. According to Historic Old Louisville, nearly all the chandeliers and sconces seen in the foyer and entry hall, dining room and formal rooms were acquired by the Warrens from antique dealers within a forty-mile radius. Perhaps one of the most interesting architectural features can be found in the home’s formal dining room. It’s not often you see a large window directly above what would have originally been a wood-burning fireplace. The fireplace surround also showcases original Rookwood tile! The Inn currently hosts a variety of themed suites such as the Grand Derby Suite, Mint Julep Suite and the Manhattan. There are a total of nine bedrooms and ten bathrooms with several options for owners quarters. The property also includes a 2,262 square foot carriage house with three bedrooms, three bathrooms, a kitchen and two garage parking spaces. The historic Louisville Bourbon Inn is currently on the market for $1.25 million with Austin Team Realty.
