      Thanks for your interest in this listing. Distance to Louisville is approximately 50 miles. There is several ways to travel which might make it a little shorter. There is a 10 car carport with each home having a space. The government built all of these homes for the employee’s families that operated the former dam. The nearest boat ramps are at Stevensport and another on down Hwy. 144. Both are appx. 3 miles. Lot size is 67×235 or 0.36 acre. The owners even have a set of the original blueprints which they will make available. If you have any further questions please contact us @ 270-756-6220.

    Thanks for checking with us about this property. I’ve tried several times to reach the owners about pets but they are out of town and their voice mail box is full. If they will allow a pet the usual deposit is an additional $200. Hopefully I can get in touch with them by early next week. Check again with us then. Thanks.

    We appreciate you contacting us about this listing. Unfortunately the owners do not accept children or pets. Also, it is not a rent to own or contract for deed. The owners are retirees so it just has to be a cash or bank financed sale. If we can run across a property that fills your requirements we will be happy to contact you. Thanks.
