Overview

Photos and Description of this 5 bedroom holiday home in Louisville - Roseheights

5 bedroom + basement, 6 bathroom - close to Churchill Downs

Regarding Derby -- we have a per night fee of $4,500 (minimum of 3 nights), but will rent 4+ nights for a maximum of $15,000 during Derby week.

Before booking, please tell us a little bit about your party and what brings you to Louisville. We'd love to help you plan for your trip by suggesting fun things to do and great places to visit while here.

Welcome to historic ROSEHEIGHTS, custom designed in 1901 by architects D.X Murphy and Brother of Louisville -- the same architects who built the famed Twin Spires at Churchill Downs. Previously owned by the Mayor of Louisville and Lieutenant Governor of Kentucky, this prestigious home has been host to many U.S. political figures such as First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt, Presidential Candidate Adali Stevenson and Presidents Truman and Johnson.

House features 5 huge bedrooms, 4 full baths and 2 half baths. All three rooms on the second level (1 king, 2 queens) have private en suite bathrooms, including the master which features a claw-foot tub and separate steam shower. Two bedrooms (1 queen, 2 fulls) on the third floor share a gigantic bathroom. The third floor also features a huge game room complete with pool table and oversize TV. Quiet, bright sun room on the first floor is the perfect location to read the paper and sip coffee every morning. Large private pool in beautifully landscaped backyard complete with Brown Jordan pool furniture (pool is not heated and is open from spring through summer -- usually late April through early September). Top of the line, gourmet appliances throughout the home. Lower level features a half bath, workout room as well as another family room with two single pull-out couches. Completely renovated from top to bottom, this is truly a unique estate.

High quality bed linens and towels adorn each bedroom and bathroom. House is stocked with bottled water and a Keurig coffee maker (coffee pods, cream and sugar included). New York Times and local Louisville paper delivered on Sundays.

Situated on one of the most elite streets in the city, in prestigious Highlands/Cherokee Gardens neighborhood just blocks from restaurants, shops and bars, and just steps from famed Cherokee Park. Easy freeway access, close to downtown and airport and just a short 15 minute drive from Valhalla Golf Course or 10 minutes from Churchill Downs. If you're not familiar with Louisville, this is the 'happening' part of town -- you'll be just blocks away from some of the best restaurants in the city.

**Note: While our house is thoroughly cleaned prior to each visit, we do have a cat (cat will not be present during guest stay)

Note about weddings and special events: While we are flattered that you think Roseheights would make a great venue for your wedding, it's not set up to accommodate one. Special event requests will be considered on a case by case basis.

Wonderful house

  • 5 of 5

This house was magnificent. Its in an excellent neighborhood and close to so many good restaurants and a nice park. Everything in the house was first class from the cookware to the bathrooms. Down to the last imaginable detail, nothing was done in a substandard fashion. We had an executive group stay here so it was also nice that each bedroom had it's own full bath. I'll also say that the owners were excellent, exceeding expectations with hospitality. They gave us great restaurant recommendations along with complimentary water, breakfast bars and coffee, and were accessible at all times if needed. I'd recommend without hesitation.

Beautiful Home, Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5

I traveled with a small group of adults to Louisville as part of our Bourbon Trail experience. We LOVED this home, a beautiful blend of historic and modern. Lisa, the homeowner, was helpful, responsive and informative. From the home it is a short drive into Louisville and walking distance to Cherokee Park which is well worth a visit.

I would recommend this house to anyone visiting the area!
