Property description

The Carriage House on Main is your home away from home in Lexington, Ky. This antebellum home is just a block and a half from Rupp Arena and in easy walking distance to many of Lexington's finest restaurants and attractions. Comfortable, contemporary furnishings and modern amenities are set against a background of hand hewn timbers and mottled brick walls. A washer and dryer, along with stainless steel appliances, cookware and dishes make long-term stays very convenient. Two parking spaces await right outside your door. Just ten minutes from Keeneland Race Course and the Kentucky Horse Park.

Lexington Location: The Carriage House is very well located. Just one block from the historic Mary Todd Lincoln Home and two blocks from the Lexington Convention Center and Rupp Arena. The Lexington Opera House and Victorian Square shopping Center are a five minute walk away, as are numerous high end restaurants, antique shops, and the Kentucky Theater. A small convenience store is located just across the street from the property.

History: The Carriage House is likely one of the oldest remaining structures in Lexington. It is a federal Style home that appeared on a recorded map of Lexington as early as 1855. It first appeared as one of three similar, small homes, and the only one of those that remains today. The building has undergone numerous renovations over the years and is an interesting example of remodeling styles over the years.

Equine events: The Carriage House is just ten minutes from numerous equestrian facilities including Keeneland Race Course, Fasig Tipton Horse Sales, and The Kentucky Horse Park.
