Nicknamed The Fortress at 5000 due to the unbelievably sturdy, concrete construction of the main residence, this property is a special offering. Surrounded by 197+/- acres of the very best ground in Central Kentucky, the 6 bedroom mansion is as beautiful as it is unique. Built in 1938, using nearly all concrete construction for the infrastructure, the residence was built for strength, durability and elegance. The large formal Dining Room, Parlor, Study, entry Foyer and Family Dining Room are all graced by 12 foot ceilings with intricate plaster medallions...with rugs to match the medallion designs. The fireplaces on the first floor are surrounded by french style marble mantles rescued from the demolition of the former Green Hills Mansion of Elmendorf Farm. On the second floor, after ascending the gorgeous circular staircase, you will find 6 large ensuite bedrooms with 10 ft ceilings, a true rarity for the construction period of the residence. Located just behind the well landscaped yard is a genuine brick Hemp Barn (50x100), two additional Tobacco Barns and some of the most beautiful land in Kentucky.
