Not only is Covington home to beautiful homes, like this 1902 reno and this historic Italianate, it also offers residents some of the area’s favorite new eateries and bars, including Ripple Wine Bar, Parlour on Seventh, and Yonder at Commonwealth Bistro. If you’re not ready to commit to the maintenance of a larger house but still crave the perks of this Kentucky town, opt for a condo instead. We’re extra fond of this Scott Street space that has a drool-worthy cool kitchen.
Huff Realty Realtor Rebecca Weber says the building complex took several years and lots of dedication from many, including The Catalytic Fund. “[They] actually acquired this building to prevent it from deteriorating beyond repair and to ensure it would be redeveloped to a high standard,” she says. The 1897 building was transformed into five residential spaces and five commercial spaces, of which the majority are already leased or sold. (This particular condo, unfortunately, was also sale pending at press time.)
The building’s luxe entry features an elevator, checkerboard flooring, an elaborate staircase, and gorgeous chandeliers. The impressive details don’t stop there. Just inside unit 3B, modern floor-to-ceiling gray wainscoting matches the staircase to the right and adds a little flair to the spacious sitting area, which flows into the living room and kitchen. The wainscoting also camouflages the entryway. Tucked behind the staircase, the cozy living room offers loads of natural light and alcoves for a TV and entertainment center.
The gourmet eat-in kitchen is the real star of the show, though, with its marble waterfall eat-in island, subway tile backsplash, and chic abstract light fixture. The fridge is also disguised as cabinets, and there’s plenty of room for a massive dining table, too.
Down the hall, the master bedroom features a unique trimming design on the ceiling and freestanding wall. Exposed brick and a swanky chandelier give the room a rustic-chic vibe. Of course, the master bath is equally beautiful, with a blue-tiled walk-in shower, double vanity, and marble and wood accents.
Upstairs, the open U-shaped loft could function as a second bedroom or family room, home office, or entertaining space. And for an added bonus, it leads to a rooftop terrace with a slate tile deck that offers plenty of space for a grill and patio furniture.
