1023 Russell Street

This house is a beautiful example of what is known locally as “Covington Italianate” style. You will see an emphasis on verticality in the tall, narrow windows with ornamental lintels and bracketed sills and the beautiful cornices supporting the roof.

As you approach the front door, notice the gas lantern that lights the way. The original wood floors, woodwork and fireplaces (upgraded to gas) add to the appeal of the interior. There is also a surprising amount of built-in storage, supplemented by the updated kitchen, which has a charming little pass-through to the dining room. The sunroom leads to a beautiful pocket back yard. This house is perfectly at home in the lovely Old Seminary Square neighborhood.
