4200 Sq. Ft., 5 Bedroom, 3.5 Bath, 6-acre Yard Surrounded by 250-acre Farm
This beautiful modern farm house is only seven years old but looks as if it has always belonged where it is. Located on a working family farm, it is still only one mile from downtown Versailles, less than 15 minutes from Keeneland, 20 minutes from Lexington attractions, and within 30 minutes of several historic bourbon distilleries. Woodford Reserve Distillery is only six miles (about 10 minutes) down incredibly scenic McCracken Pike. The Kentucky Horse Park is just over 30 minutes NE of here.
The five bedrooms include a first-floor master suite with king-sized bed (bathroom has air jet tub and shower that is also a steam shower), two second-floor queens that share a full bath with separate shower and clawfoot tub, and two downstairs bedrooms, one king and one queen, that share a bathroom with shower-tub combo. All three full baths have two sinks. Downstairs rec room is 800 sq. ft. and contains a 48-inch flatscreen tv (Wii and satellite tv), pool and air hockey tables, and dart board.
Living room includes a beautiful fireplace with elevated hearth (firewood supplied), a loaded bookshelf, and a cushioned window seat that is another wonderful place to just BE. Plenty of board and card games are available in the drawers below the window seat.
Because the second floor is only a half-story, the gourmet kitchen and adjacent dining room feature vaulted ceilings over 20 feet high. A second-floor loft overlooks the area and includes a smaller television. It can also be a great space for yoga or a similar workout routine. Kitchen includes induction cooktop, double ovens, an adjoining bar area, copper sink, soapstone countertops, and all necessary appliances and utensils. Massive picture windows throughout the home feature beautiful views of surrounding yard and farm.
Dine in, or, if the weather cooperates, enjoy a meal on our spacious screened porch. The suspended bed is perfect for an afternoon nap or time spent with a great book. A pet miniature pig and three outdoor cats may come to say hello and are entertaining sights as they patrol the yard, but they will require no care and little contact (if that is your preference).
This is a comfortable yet elegant family-friendly home. We know you'll love it as much as we do.

Wonderful Inviting Home
We did a girls weekend and this house was perfect. Close to bourbon tasting and Keeneland. Clean, inviting, spacious, well-maintained and friendly owners. Would easily rent again and would highly recommend to others.
Incredible house and property
Close to the racetrack, bourbon trail, and more. Perfect for our group of 10 with tons of extras that made the weekend fantastic. The owners were great to work with and highly recommend this to anyone coming to the area!
Perfect house for a weekend getaway!
We rented this house for a girls weekend and were not disappointed! Flora greeted us when we arrived and showed us around. The house is gorgeous and so is the property it's on! Animals roamed around including a friendly pig, dogs, cats, goats and horses. The house was made to relax and enjoy your surroundings with a screened in porch. Speakers all throughout the house and outside. My only complaint is that I wish there weren't so many trees around the pool and more direct sunlight. Flora was extremely helpful and a quick response with any questions. We will definitely be going back!
Perfect Country Setting
Although the pictures look beautiful, nothing was better than driving up and having my husband say "oh my! Can we just buy this place?!!!" Each family had the same reaction - "idyllic, gorgeous, wonderful country setting"
And we can't leave out the pet pig who provided entertainment - just watching - to young and old.
We were in an ideal location, yet close to stores, shops, horse farms, bourbon tours etc
Perfect setting for family vacation!!!
Beautiful property with excellent amenities
We rented this house along with my brother and his family for a small family vacation. The house was perfect in that it provided us the opportunity to spend quality time together whether it was in the pool, playing outdoor games in the large yard or hanging out on the screened in porch. The house was very spacious and easily accommodated 4 adults and 6 kids. We loved our stay!
Great family vacation in Kentucky
Our entire family loved the house and location! Flora and John were great hosts and our grand kids loved it when Flora would let them go out by the horse and goats at feeding time
in the mornings! - The friendly pig that have the run of the yard and the 3 cats and 2 dogs
were also a delight for the kids - the home was roomy and we probably spent 75% of our awake time on the large screened in porch - even when it rained it kept dry - besides that it was facing the pool so the kids could swim while an adult was sitting in the porch. We were not sure about the electric stove but we were surprised on quickly it boiled water and changed temperature so quickly - we actually got to love the stove! - also the hot water was quick when going into the shower- no waiting for the hot water to begin!! - the property was great - well enough off the street so no road noise and it was just great being on a 250 acre farm!
The location was also perfect as the Woodford Distillery was only about 10 minutes from the home and the road was perfect for bike riding - not kids- adults - the roads are very smooth but be prepared for some big hills! - All our kids and grand kids said can we come back here
again next year!
