Wow. This Covington Townhouse is Like Something Out of a Magazine.
The historic downtown Covington building known as the Boone Block was most recently a liquor store and otherwise mostly vacant.
Developer Tony Kreutzjans (Orleans Development) saw an opportunity to transform the massive structure - believed to have been the location of assassinated Governor William Goebel's law office - into 9 luxury townhouses with rear garages that can serve as entertaining space with a glass wall that opens into the kitchen, and then three full floors of upscale downtown living.
With help from the Catalytic Fund, the City of Covington, Forcht Bank, and others, the project is nearing completion.
At least five are sold or under contract and one unit is already occupied.
The model unit was just finished and The River City News got a sneak peek, courtesy of real estate agents Rebecca Weber and Joy Amann (contact them for more information). The spaces capitalize on the historic elements like original brick and staircases, and also re-purposed many materials like old doors from when the building housed offices and apartments.
The model is listed at $369,900 (but the largest unit is more than twice this size!).
Take a look.
