707 Bakewell Street

Although you can’t tell from the way it blends beautifully into the neighborhood, this home was built in 2017. The owner bought two adjacent vacant lots, which gave him enough room for a large, carriage house-style garage and cozy backyard with a stone patio. The house itself is a triumph of space planning, resulting in a spacious feel that offers the owner everything he needs on a daily basis on the first floor. There is also a lovely 2nd floor with two bedrooms and full bath and a partially finished basement entertainment and family room. The details of the home are extraordinary, including reclaimed items such as four tin ceiling tiles, two working transom windows and a clawfoot bathtub, all from other buildings in Covington. You will see two stained glass windows, one old and one new, glass doorknobs and numerous pieces of local art. There is even a custom paint color on all the walls that Sherwin Williams named “Bakewell” after this home’s street.
