1402 Greenup, Covington KY Italianate

This home in Covington KY. has a nicely detailed exterior  with great original stone retaining wall.

 In fact we love the porch with its architecturally paneled ceiling.

Currently a tri-plex it has retained many of its historic features like the cast iron marbleized mantles.

There are some things , like an unfortunate 'cathedral ceiling detail upstairs we might take back to its original proper ceiling height as it introduces a contemporary element into an otherwise period style home. If one desires a return to a grand single family this represents a great opportunity

This home sits on a 4800 square ft lot and has six fireplaces and comes with a FIVE car garage which is pure gold in an urban environment. It is priced at a very reasonable 175K, less than most 'starter homes' in the burbs these days.
