1858 Alfresco, Highlands

This is the house you read about in Louisville Magazine and WDRB-TV.

Do Derby Right! Spend Derby weekend in the beautiful Highlands, a block from Bardstown Road, with restaurants, shopping, and attractions within walking distance. Gawk at celebrities at the infamous Barnstable Brown party; kick back under the gazebo; and walk to restaurants, bars, and coffee shops.

Our home is a classic Highlands gem. The lower level is a separate apartment with one bedroom and one bathroom.  The main house is three bedrooms and one bathroom (one bedroom is an office/bedroom) for a total of four bedrooms and two full baths.

The upstairs bath has a separate water closet. The house has beautiful hardwoods downstairs and carpet upstairs for silent nights. Decorated in a light, Pottery Barn style. Stainless steel and granite in the kitchen, flat-screen TV, two-tier deck with gazebo, separate dining area and grill, and a beautiful sunny yard. Our smoke-free, pet-free home will be professionally cleaned before your arrival.

Other details you’ll appreciate: all new windows with blinds or plantation shutters keep out the sun and let you sleep like a baby. U-verse TV and wireless Internet. A home office. Gas fireplace. All white hotel-style towels. And mint juleps!

Beds: 1 king (Heaven on Earth with heated mattress pad, super pillow-top mattress, and luxury linen), 1 queen pillowtop, 1 double, 1 sofa bed (Ikea Mandal, very comfortable) in the office. Additional queen air mattress available on request.

Testimonial from last year’s Derby Renter: 

“Colleen was such a gracious host! She responded quickly to all of my messages and was truly great to work with. We rented the whole house and had such a wonderful time! Her home offered plenty of space, was very clean and has super cute style! The back patio is something to behold, a peaceful outdoor space in a city setting! The house is very close to many restaurants, bars/the “hip” part of town, an easy walk or $5 cab ride. Overall, it was a great experience. I would definitely stay in this beautiful home and work with Colleen again!:  — Heidi
