About Greg Lawrence

We love our Kentucky home. In July 2014 our family received a wonderful job opportunity which required us to move to Houston, Texas . We just couldn't pass up this opportunity. Although we hated to leave our friends and family in Kentucky, it was time for a great adventure. We do like living in the great city of Houston, but our roots are in KY. One day we hope to return and we just can't imagine living in and loving another home as much as this one. So, we decided to share this special place. Enjoy the time you spend here. We hope you love it as much as we do.

Greg Lawrence purchased this house in 2005

Why Greg Lawrence chose Lexington

This beautiful property offers the best of the Bluegrass. Horse country living with easy city access provides the best of both worlds. The two master suites make vacation travel more desirable with added privacy for family trips.

Comfortable and luxurious bedding from Sferra, Peacock Alley, Ralph Lauren, Pacific Coast, and Martha Stewart offer a wonderful night's sleep. Plush towels await after a refreshing shower. Relax and enjoy the beautify Kentucky Bluegrass in the lap of luxury.

Location location location!

  • 5 of 5

This past weekend 8 of us were in Lexington for a friend's wedding! This house was perfect for our group. The house is located in a beautiful neighbourhood. Close to Keenland, Midway, and all the other attractions, this house makes a perfect place to call home when visiting the area. The kitchen is fabulous and the sitting areas are comfortable. All the bedrooms are a good size and the beds are very nice! There is ample space outdoors too which includes a nice deck and grill area. Plenty of parking for multiple vehicles was an added bonus. I would highly recommend this house to anyone needing a good sized house for a Kentucky get away!

Spacious, beautiful and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We rented the house for a weekend to get together with friends for a 50th birthday, and had an amazing time. The house is beautiful, spacious and comfortable, perfect for our group of 11. The kitchen, dining room and living area were wonderful places to gather and eat. The location is gorgeous, in the heart of horse country, and within easy drive of many bourbon distilleries. Very close to both the airport and Keeneland Race Track! The owner, while not local, was very responsive and available via email and phone. Highly recommended.

Perfect Home Base for UK Graduation

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the Horse Country Haven for UK graduation weekend in December. It was perfect for our extended family. Warm and friendly environment with plenty of room for everyone to be comfortable and have their own space.The home was nicely decorated for the holidays and was stocked with just about anything you could need in the kitchen. Greg, thank you for the perfect home away from home! We hope to stay in your beautiful home again when we're back in Lexington for Keeneland weekends.!
