Its a great place for quiet study; some call it living in a tree house! This triplex is currently occupied by a respected Professor in Urban Affairs and another who is a doctor conducting research on cancer. So if you are earnest and quiet, this place is a thinkers paradise. This beautiful apartment was designed by a team of urban design experts from University of Kentucky and University of Louisville. Special attention was given to making this loft apartment energy efficient using skylights and windows that are energy efficient and open for good air to circulate via two doors. Average energy costs is around $35 a month. Also, helping is the house is brick not wood which means more energy savings. The current tenant who has lived there for 3 years says her average monthly his and gas bill is only $35. Most one bedrooms in historic houses average around $100 to $200 a month--so you save an average of around on $1,000 to $2,000 a year--do the math. It is so unique with the passive solar design that it has been the basis of sustainability tours and featured in my books. This historic Home is approximately 115 years old with lots of character and personality!!! We offer a home not an apartment! It's a statement about who you are n individual with a personality. This third floor loft has Cathedral Ceilings, dishwasher, central air, disposal, washer and dryer, full bath, private deck, fenced area and great architectural lines. We added a deck area that makes you feel like you are in a tree house surrounded by 200 year old giant trees by with birds singing and nesting. Its great place for quiet meditation, reading, or writing as past tenants have cheered about. Its a peaceful oasis from the hustle and bustle of the 900 block of Baxter. A great space for morning tea/coffee and reading the morning computer. The past two tenants were studying at UofL for doctorate and law degree--now they are moving on to marriage and awesome jobs. The cabinets and counter were custom designed by a Cuban cabinet maker. Very private and quiet! Lots of air and light. This home just underwent a major restoration.

I was a former tenant advocate for the state of California. You know where I live in the neighborhood, you have my cell phone number and email address not an anonymous lock box. Fight landlords who try to keep all of your security and cleaning deposit; or add in additional rent charges when you move into apartment emptied of all appliances after you signed the lease. Or landlords who do not properly screen tenants for criminal offenses. I am John Gilderbloom owner of Dutch Trading Company and here is my scorecard: no fines for housing code violations while 10,000 other owners have had those; no house break in or assaults in my rentals; we return nearly all of the cleaning and security deposit 90% or more of the time; We like to take the "lord" out of landlord and work on a modern business relationship that is fair, rationale and respectful not combative. Bottom line our business plan is to provide a great historic home, neighborhood that is walkable and service that is responsive.
