Mark and Julie Kelley remodeled Glenmary’s home in Louisville

When Julie Kelly’s sister, Jennifer Eberle, bought property in Louisville’s Glenmary subdivision more than two decades ago, Julie and her husband Mark were also looking for a change. It turned out that the sisters landed right next to each other.

“Jennifer used to live on (another street in the area),” Julie told The Courier Journal. “(She) bought this plot and started building. My husband and I were ready to get out of where we were, so we started looking for lots, (and) this lot was vacant.… And that’s it. funniest to be neighbors. ”

The sisters have spent countless hours with each other’s families and watched their children grow up together. Recently, they also completed remodeling of the home. After Julie saw what Leslie Lewis-Sheets from LL&A Interior Design was doing at Jennifer’s home, she also decided to make some changes to her home.

Bigger and brighter

The walk-out basement of the Kelley home has a large kitchen area as well as an entertaining area with a fireplace.

“We love the open concept with the great room, dining room and kitchen,” Julie said of her renovated one-and-a-half-story home. Each of the rooms flows smoothly into the next, now connected by wooden floors with wire brush finish.

“Like Jennifer,” she added, “I had carpet in the dining room, I had tiles … in the hall, I had carpet (in the great room), and I had hardwood in the kitchen. There was just so much happening. Now it feels just as it has always been here – that’s how it should have been. “
