                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 1840

                  About the owner: Both homes were built by the owners families and have been purchased back from current owners to remain in the family for the rest of time. There is so much history in both properties and we would be honored to share the entire story with you over a glass of wine.

                  Why the Owner Chose Lexington:
                  When given the chance to visit Kentucky, there is NO other spot to spend your time. The GlenLary estate IS Kentucky. From the historic antebellum home, to the 84 acres of rolling bluegrass and not to mention the Thoroughbred horses grazing in the pastures.
