We bought this 1948 home in December 2013. We renovated the downstairs apartment and rented it right away. Then we decided to renovate and furnish the upstairs apartment for vacation travelers to Lexington. It is gorgeous and close to Lexington's growing downtown scene! In fact, it is only steps away from Jefferson Street, Lexington's newest entertainment district, with bars, a brewery, restaurants and an upscale wine bar.

Year Purchased: 2013
About the owner: We bought this c. 1948 house in December 2013 and renovated it in the Spring of 2014. We've had such success sharing our own homes that we decided to list the upstairs apartment as a designated vacation rental. We completely renovated the kitchen and the bath while preserving all of the historic details. We used
Why the Owner Chose Lexington: The home is located in Lexington's second and largest neighborhood on beautiful West 3rd Street. The neighborhood has undergone a transformation in recent years while maintaining it's historic charm. There are many restaurants, breweries, bars and shops opening throughout.
We have a heart for historic preservation (this is our ninth) in downtown Lexington and this is our first short-term rental. We are excited to meet the guests who visit our charming and comfy apartment and welcome them to our hometown.
The Unique Benefits at this Apartment: The garden is incredible. Not being talented gardeners ourselves, we feel incredibly lucky that a landscape architect rented one of the apartments for several years before we bought the house in December, 2013. He spent several thousand hours and hundreds of dollars creating an English garden of winding paths and full, lush beds. It is peaceful and a piece of paradise right downtown. All we had to do was dig it since he had moved out and it was neglected for several years.
The furnishings have been culled from area estate sales over the past year. The resulting look is a contemporary renovation, with vintage furnishings.
Teri and her husband have spent a few nights there when their own home is rented, and have absolutely loved it. We are confident our guests will too!
