LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – How would you like to win a new house in Norton Commons for just $100? It’s possible! The Norton Children’s Hospital raffle house is now open for you to check out.
WAVE 3 News Anchor Shannon Cogan took a tour of the home located at 10934 Monkshood Dr., Prospect, Kentucky, right near the Norton Commons YMCA.
This year’s home stands out for its height because it’s three stories.
Builder David Ramage says he was inspired by architecture in Chicago, where builders take advantage of the roof.
The third floor is currently being used as a bar because it connects out to the terrace. But there are options.
"You could do it for a loft for an older child, or a kid that moved home after school,” Ramage said.The terrace is a great spot to take in many of the community events because you have a great view.
“This is the terrace space that has about 400 feet. Thought it would be a great way to enjoy outdoor living but a little more elevated from the sidewalk so you have more privacy.”
The main floor features a kitchen with something unusual, two islands. It was the idea of Interior designer Leslie Dorazil of Leslie Cotter Interiors.
"I saw the floor plan and immediately thought we should have two islands. Just think it’s a better use of space,” she said.
The two islands and the table for four mean 12 people can sit down to eat in this kitchen, making it great for entertaining.
The tile over the stove really captivates the eyes.
"This was a splurge for sure. It is real marble, it is three dimensional,” Dorazil said.
The master bedroom is on the first floor. And the master bathroom also has something unique: The bathtub sits in the shower space.
"It’s a great use of space to combine the tub and the shoulder and we’ve got multiple shower heads here,” Dorazil said.
With the current set-up there are three spaces to entertain. On the main floor. On the second floor, where there are also two bedrooms. And that third floor off the terrace.
All together the home has three bathrooms, three and a half baths, for a total of 3200 square feet. There’s also an unfinished basement which would provide more space.
"Planning for this starts a year before the house even opens,” Dorazil said.
Open houses are held every Saturday and Sunday, Sept. 29 through Nov. 11, noon to 6 p.m. and Nov. 17, noon to 3 p.m. Home & BMW Raffle tickets can be purchased at the house and guests can register to win a giveaway!
The 2nd place winner will get a 2018 BMW 2 Series from BMW of Louisville plus $10,000 cash.
