Just 20 minutes outside of historic downtown Versailles, a pristine and quiet getaway awaits a new owner. 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 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.
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 over 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 barn door is well-appointed, and has room for even the largest wardrobe.
Downstairs, a second full living area, complete with full kitchen, full bathroom, and two rooms that could be used as bedrooms. 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.
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. A 40’x40’ raised-bed garden is fenced in to protect from critters next to a beautiful chicken coop.
Across the gently rolling 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 and ready 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, as well as only half an hour from Lexington, this is one property you won’t want to miss.
