This may look like an older home from the curb, but it’s brand new and part of Louisville’s 2011 Homearama in the Norton Commons neighborhood. I love a good Homearama, and I thought you’d enjoy a peek inside one of the houses on the tour.

This house, which has a fun, third-story “look-out” room, was dubbed The Robbens Nest. Builders Jason Black and David Lutes of Stonecroft Homes describe it as “a Classical  Vernacular home.”

I would love to see this neighborhood in person. It looks like there are a lot of charming houses here! This one overlooks a public square with a fountain that you can see in the video tour (below).

The ceiling and trim details in the house are interesting to see, especially in a new house. I couldn’t handle that much pattern on my own ceiling, but it’s beautifully done.

Have you noticed that wing chairs are hot right now? I’m seeing them everywhere–especially in dining rooms like this:

The interior design was done by Gretchen Black, who writes the blog Nesting in the Bluegrass.

I love the tile in the kitchen. Gorgeous!

The house has 4,456 square feet.

This back hallway has built-in storage that I’d kill for:

There are 5 bedrooms and 4.5 baths, which you can see in this video tour of the house (watch it here if the video doesn’t come up for you):

The Robbens Nest has already sold for $689,000, but it’s part of the Homearama tour through July 31, 2011 in Louisville, Kentucky (I don’t live close enough to go, but maybe you do!). More photos and information about the house at Stonecroft Homes.

P.S. I featured another home in this neighborhood that a lot of you loved: The Palazzo.
