Overview

About the property

4 Bedrooms, 4 Baths, Sleeps 12

Welcome to Pettit Place, a southern contemporary custom home, built right in the center of downtown Lexington. Completed in 2005, this property is a 2-story, one of a kind home spanning nearly 4,500 square feet with an elegant downtown vibe that still exudes classic Lexingtonian style. Beautiful natural light accents the open floor plan that offers space for a large group to spread out and stay comfortably. The home has 10-20 ft ceilings throughout, 3 private porches, an outdoor water feature in the private courtyard, sky line views of downtown to the back and views of the historic Hunt-Morgan house and gardens out the front picture windows! It can sleep up to 12 and has an elevator for accessing the second floor. A private garage and secured outdoor driveway (enclosed inside electric gates) offer parking for 4 cars. The property was home to a former mayor of Lexington and was designed by his son, Van Meter Pettit. The Pettit family recently decided to open it to guests to share a bit of authentic Lexington with visitors to the city!

Bedroom Layout:

There is 1 master bedroom on the ground floor with a King size bed and en suite bathroom that has a soaking tub/shower combination. This bedroom has a TV and views out to the courtyard.

The second floor has an additional master bedroom with a King size bed, 2 en suite baths (one with a tub and one with a shower) and picture windows along the front of the house with a door to access the front porch/balcony. There is a study located outside this bedroom and another door for accessing the porch. There is a guest bedroom with a queen size bed on the second floor as well as the "loft" bedroom, which has 2 sets of twin over full bunk beds and a sleeper sofa (it is a huge room!). These two guest rooms share a bathroom with shower/tub combination that has jack and jill doors offering an en suite experience to the queen bedroom and hallway access for those staying in the loft bedroom. The queen bedroom has a private porch overlooking the courtyard. The loft bedroom has a TV.

Wonderful experience for us 4 couples. Very accommodating for the 8 of us. Kitchen and sitting area large enough for us to cook-in and enjoy our meals. Walking distance to downtown shops and restaurants. Easy drive to Keeneland.

We were a large group renting both Pettit Place and Aldridge House (right next door), and we sincerely enjoyed the open floor plan of the downstairs of Pettit Place, general comfort, and ease of walking downtown and to the University of Kentucky. We hope to be back next year!

We attended a beautiful New Years Eve wedding and stayed at Pettit Place. This is the perfect place for a large family. My husband and I and our 3 grown children and their children stayed here and loved it! Large kitchen allowed multiple people to prepare food for adults or the children. Lots of room to move around and each family had room for privacy. Extremely clean and well maintained we have family in Lexington and will definitely do this again! It is a wonderful way to bond with your grown children and grandchildren and they get to know each other again!

Pettit Place was the perfect house for a Christmas getaway for our family. There was plenty of room for our 8 family members and 2 dogs. The house is in a great location downtown, allowing us to walk to great dinner spots and several entertainment options.

Reviewer Comments:

Our extended family stayed at Pettit Place for a UK Graduation in December 2017. You can really tell the difference between a house and an architect designed home. This home has every detail throughout. We had four families (12 adults total) and there was plenty of space, towels and bathrooms for all to share. I would definitely recommend Pettit Place to anyone visiting Lexington. My only concerns were the narrow garage doors, not quite large enough for a full size car or SUV. With no additional parking around the house (without hefty payments on UK game days) it made parking a challenge. But, you can fit four smaller/mid size cars in the available parking, so plan accordingly. Another concern is the lack of cooking utensils for a large group. There are plenty of place settings for the 12 of us. However, preparing food food for 12 in two eight- inch pans and no baking dishes was a challenge. Again, the home is fabulous and spacious. The setting can't be beat by any downtown venue. I have no regrets and I would definitely book it again.

Perfect home for a family vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our extended family came together at a geographic midpoint to celebrate Thanksgiving. We couldn’t have asked for more perfect accommodations and location. The house has large and relaxing common spaces and comfy individual spaces. The houses architecture is fascinating and worth the stay. We were fortunate to meet the 2 owners and they are charming men. The neighborhood is in the historic district. We enjoyed the neighborhood walking tours (brochure located in the house) and the nearby Children’s Emporium. There are also many restaurants within walking distance. Having stayed at rentals previously we were pleased with the extras: paper towel, shower soap, shampoo etc. Many other amenities for renters enjoyment: TVs in 2 bedrooms and living room, several decks, and a gorgeous private porch with a fountain.
