Overview / Comments

The Marcus Lindsey is a beautifully re-purposed Victorian-era church, which was built in two phases; the first in 1888, the second in 1898. In January of 2009, after sitting vacant for a number of years, it was purchased and restoration began in February 2009. It was completed in February 2012. The property now includes three luxury residential units, a four-car garage, the breathtaking Sanctuary, and an elegant 1/4-acre professionally designed garden with pond and pavilion on the east side of the Marcus Lindsey property. The Marcus Lindsey is a National Historic Landmark.

In 1898 the cornerstone was laid for the “modern” sanctuary. It now stands as one of the coolest properties in the Nulu District of Louisville — the latest, perhaps greatest, and certainly the most unique special event venue space in the city.

The Sanctuary — Expansive yet intimate, the former sanctuary boasts massive and original stained-glass windows; an original handcrafted-wood cathedral ceiling; and 3,640-square-feet of space, including the main floor and balcony mezzanine. The Mezzanine features a stunning North facing 20×20 foot floor to ceiling, original, stained glass window. With its wonderful natural light and incredible architectural detail and attention to quality, the Sanctuary exudes a unique and inviting atmosphere for weddings, receptions, celebrations, fundraisers, conferences, community and special-interest events.

The Sacristy — at 1,610 square feet, this two-bedroom, two-and-one-half-bath condominium is directly connected to the Sanctuary. It also has an additional private entrance off Shelby Street.

The Gardens — a quarter-acre, elegant, professionally designed and landscaped garden with beautiful water feature. Discreetly hidden by high-quality wooden and iron fencing, it’s an oasis lying just a few hundred yards from the city’s vibrant dining scene and nestled among the gorgeous rehabbed Washington Street Victorian homes in Butchertown. With the sight of a beautiful water feature in the background, a large contemporary covered pergola, and abundant lush, colorful flora, Gavin’s Garden — its formal name — is an idyllic space for an outdoor event such as a wedding, a lawn party, or even a concert. Could be sold separately.
