We’re Obsessed With The Funky Basement In This Highlands Victorian Once Owned By A Speed


There are a couple things about this for-sale property that caught our eye: 

One, it was once owned by Sue Speed, the first executive director of the Louisville Coalition for the Homeless.

And two, it has a really unique “party basement” with nature scenes painted by local artist Lindsay Roberts, who used to be the chef at Lynn’s Paradise Café. 

Oh, and local interior designer Dennis Tapp once owned the home, too. So, its floors are have soaked up a lot of Louisville history in their time.

This two-bedroom, two-bath home is for sale for $235,000. It was built in 1892 and is filled with original detail, such as its trim work and fixtures. It also has modern updates, including its kitchen’s breakfast bar and grainite counters.

The funky basement features a walk-out to a secret patio.

The home is listed by Michaelle Warner with Walton Jones REALTORS, Inc. You can find the full listing here.
