This grand three-story house with the copper-topped turret and wrap-around porch may look like an older home that was updated, but it’s actually brand new. Hampton Pointe was Artisan Signature Homes’ award-winning Homearama entry last year in Louisville, Kentucky, and I was surprised to see how modern it is inside. It was designed for a young family with children and dogs, and there are playful details like a slide and a secret door. Take a look!

Norton Commons is a neighborhood in Louisville where the houses are all inspired by classic designs.
A diamond-patterned copper “bell” tops the turret:
There are balconies on the second and third floors:
The exterior is a real show-stopper. I can imagine some traffic jams at this corner with people rubber-necking to get a better look at it!
