You will feel as though you are stepping back in time as you enter this spectacular private estate. "Cold Spring" is one of Louisville's most historically and architecturally significant homes. The original house was built by Joshua Fry Speed and his wife Fanny Hennings Speed in 1867. The house was built on part of the original Farmington plantation and currently retains 6.72 acres. In 1911 the house underwent extensive renovation transforming the simpler Victorian Speed home into an Italian Villa. This magnificent home features 12 foot ceilings, 5 bedrooms, 4.5 baths, gilded and crystal chandeliers, front and rear staircases, and elegant marble and wood carved mantels. The entrance hall features a lovely turned staircase and black and white marble flooring orginating from the second Galt house and seamlessly transitions to the first floor loggia.
