When David Grantz began looking for a new home, he knew exactly which part of town interested him most.

“In my opinion, the prettiest drive in all of Louisville is River Road,” he said. “(My fiancée and I) always knew that we wanted to live in Glenview, closer to the river. I got on Zillow … typed in ‘40222’ and the amount of money I wanted to spend … and this house popped up.”

Grantz couldn’t believe the listing price was so low; he knew he had to make sure the French Regency-style house had no structural problems or other major issues. Turns out, the bones of the home were just fine — everything else, however, was severely outdated.

Loving the locale

Though he knew he’d have to make some major changes to the house to accommodate his needs and style, Grantz was convinced it was the house for him; its proximity to both the Ohio River and his downtown advertising agency made it the perfect pick.

“We (also) love that our home is tucked away on a private road,” he said. “It’s very quiet back here. We don’t get a lot of drive-through traffic. Oftentimes, it feels like we are hundreds of miles away from the hustle and bustle of downtown; however, in reality, we’re only minutes away from the heart of the city. It’s hard to beat this location.”
