The Fountain Court location is a classic ''walking court'' that leads from one of the most iconic features in Louisville, the St. James Court Fountain, to the main thoroughfare of Old Louisville, Fourth Street. As you enter the home, a high-ceiling foyer and three-story grand staircase greet you and lead to the beautiful formal living and dining rooms that connect to a completely updated kitchen and half bath.
