Bingham Greenebaum Doll Partner Tandy C. Patrick Secures Auction Company for Sale of Howard Hardy House


On May 23, 2013, one of Louisville’s oldest pieces of history went up for auction. The Howard Hardy House, property of Christ Church Cathedral, was built in the early 1800’s and is believed to be the last pre-Civil War home still standing  in downtown Louisville.

The historic home has taken on many faces in its nearly 200 years. Originally constructed by John Howard, early records link the home to slavery. In the early 1900’s, new owners transformed the home into a boarding house for University of Louisville students and later took on the role of the once popular Millers Cafeteria. In the early 2000’s, the Howard Hardy House became property of Christ Cathedral Church and in 2006, the historic home underwent major renovation as part of the church’s urban housing development, the Cathedral Commons project.

Vacant since 2011, it is now time for a new owner to share the rich history of the Howard Hardy House. With counsel from Bingham Greenebaum Doll LLP partner Tandy C. Patrick, the Cathedral secured auction company Sperry Van Ness Ward Commercial Group and auctioned off the home along with the first-floor of the adjacent commercial condominium on Thursday, May 23. 

Patrick, who is partner in the firm’s Real Estate Practice Group, focuses her practice on leasing, acquisition, development and financing of commercial real estate, including retail, office, warehouse and multi-family projects. Her practice includes a particular emphasis on shopping centers, condominium and mixed use projects, restaurants and entertainment venues.
