Tour Stop #9: 3715 Winston Ave.

Intriguing “before”

This mixed-use property was originally Flake’s Hardware and most recently a blues bar called Mahogany’s. On the first floor, you’ll see a beautiful tin ceiling and a stunning late 1800’s back bar that was rescued from an old Covington café. The upstairs apartment, although it’s in fairly rough shape at the moment, has promising assets, including a simple Rookwood fireplace, glassed-in porch and three bedrooms. There’s a ton of potential for this building to once again become a community gathering spot.
