Breathtaking 358 ACRE RETREAT has it all and is priced to sell! Rarely do fantastic parcels of property such as this so close to Louisville and Lexington come available for sale. Located just over the Shelby line in Anderson County--this unique property is secluded, quiet, reflective and peaceful yet enjoys close access to I-64 at the Waddy/Peytona exit. Only 35 minutes from Louisville and 45 minutes from Lexington. The property is anchored by a beautifully restored 100-year old farm house adjacent to two lakes totaling approximately 10 acres. The house has 4 large bedrooms and 2 baths. It has a large wrap-around porch with rocking chairs and swing to enjoy morning coffee and conversation. The main level has a completely renovated kitchen with stainless steel appliances and a spacious bathroom with new tile shower. Both fit in perfectly with the space and feel of the house. The kitchen is open to an eating area, family room, plus a sunroom leading to a large deck overlooking one of the lakes. The house has its original hardwood flooring throughout, has new interior light fixture and fans, new professionally-installed wood-burning stove and has been freshly painted. On the outside there is new vinyl siding, new metal roof on the porch and the large deck blends in nicely with the surroundings. Also included is a new outdoor grill island and wonderful firepit laid from stone on the farm perfect for late night gatherings. Current owners have spared no expense in making this a comfortable retreat. The charming setting has to be seen to appreciate its uniqueness with swimming, fishing, canoeing, kayaking, hiking on its trail system, 4-wheeling, and gardening just to name a few of the endless possibilities on the property. There is also great hunting as several large trophy bucks have been taken on the property, and many more remain along with wild turkey and other game.

The property is a great mix of pasture, open fields and woods with huge red and white oaks, walnut and cedar trees which could be harvested employing accepted forestry techniques. Approximately 50 acres are under fence which is currently used for about 50 cattle. There are 2 nice large tobacco barns used for equipment storage and a third barn used in the cattle operation. There are also 3 large garden areas perfect for abundant summer vegetable growing.

Benson Creek flows into another creek on the property and forms the large lake which is the focal point of the farm. There are 3 principal entrances to the farm, 2 on Benson Creek Rd., and 1 on Walter Cox Lane. There is approximately 2370 ft. of road frontage on Pigeon Fork and 4000 ft. of frontage on Benson Creek Rd. The property can be found by taking Exit 43 off I-64 (Waddy/Peytona) and going South on Hwy. 395 toward Waddy. Past the RR tracks in Waddy turn Left at Waddy Christian Church onto Hwy. 2867 (aka King's Hwy). Go 2.5 miles to Hwy 1472 and turn Right. Travel 1.7 miles to Benson Creek Rd. and turn Left. This property is currently combined into 2 parcels with a majority of the land in the Kentucky PACE program (Preservation Agriculture Conservation Easement). What a find for someone looking for a family or corporate retreat close to the city!
