For those craving the potential of a multi-generational homestead, or who are wishing for the opportunity to build the home of their dreams while living in a gorgeous home on site, this pristine and quiet getaway awaits just 20 minutes outside of historic downtown Versailles.
At the end of a long drive, the lovely Bedford stone home is more than meets the eye. Thanks to a to-the-studs renovation in 2015, this 61-year-old farmhouse boasts an open and inviting floor plan, with no expense spared. Step in through the covered front porch to an inviting living space. The bright living room is centered around a central fireplace, where Shiplap walls and clean wainscoting envelope the space. Just ahead, the dining area is large enough for formal holiday dinners, but stays casual and comfortable, thanks to the simple iron chandelier and the openness to the chef's kitchen. Here, Barber Custom Cabinetry and clean subway tile swath the walls, while a large center island has storage on both sides, and seating for 4. KitchenAid smart fridge, paneled dishwasher, and double wall ovens combine with a Bosch drop-in gas range for a space worthy of any level of home cook and any size of feast. A full bathroom in the hall is perfect for guests, with subway-tiled step-in shower and a vintage dresser-turned-vanity. Down the hall, the primary suite is the perfect getaway for the homeowners. Shiplap walls and detailed moldings and trim work welcome one in, while Northwest-facing windows allow for some evening light to come in through the fall-colored foliage and across the pond. Attached, an enormous ensuite bath makes for a private retreat anyone would love. Dual vanities, private water closet, and a large walk-in shower offer ease of sharing space, while a beautiful stand-alone soaking tub beckons at the end of the day. A walk-in closet, hidden behind a sliding ban door is well-appointed, and has room for even the largest wardrobe.
Downstairs, a second full living area is complete with new Luxury Vinyl Plank flooring, and boasts a large family room with shiplap and wood-burning fireplace, a full kitchen, full bathroom, and two large bedrooms with ample closet space, perfect for a large number of either owners or houseguests. Just because it's below-grade, this area does not feel like a basement, rather, an apartment and living space of its own, with as much attention to detail as is found on the main floor. From the rear doors off of the dining area, a third living space can be found in the covered porch. Tiled floors, high ceiling, outdoor fireplace and space for a television combine to make these Bluegrass State seasons enjoyable year round; current owners love to enclose the porch with curtains in chilly months, keeping warm by the fire.
A 776 square-foot guest house on the property boasts a first floor kitchen and living area, as well as a full bathroom and bedroom on the second floor, perfect for hosting family and friends for a long weekend, and offers AirBNB opportunity with personal pet kennel.
A 40'x40' raised-bed garden is fenced in to protect from critters next to a beautiful chicken coop. Across the gently rolling, income-producing alfalfa fields, a stocked, 2-acre pond keeps trout, crappie, bluegill, and bass at the ready, while a 1,900 square foot tobacco barn is poised for whatever crops the next owner wishes. With the security of a whole-home generator, and one of the loveliest locations in Woodford County, this 54-acre retreat with road frontage along Mundys Landing and Fords Mill Road, sandwiched between horse farms is one of the prettiest around. Being so close to Versailles, area distilleries, Keeneland, and local historic sites, as well as only half an hour from Lexington, this is one property you won't want to miss!
