Beauty in the Bluegrass State: $8M Mansion Is Kentucky’s Most Expensive HomePosted on: February 12, 2018, by : Amy Pecoraro
What will nearly $8 million get you in Kentucky? A lot. Meet Kentucky’s most expensive listing, in the city of Nicholasville.
Measuring 21,729 square feet, with seven bedrooms, 10 baths, and three half-baths, this Georgian-English manor doesn’t skimp on luxuries.
It features a pool, wraparound terraces, custom cabinets, a fitness center, massage room, four fireplaces, a six-car garage, outdoor spa, theater, guesthouse, billiard room, library, formal dining area, and formal living area. If you throw in a conservatory and Colonel Mustard, you’ve got yourself a real-life game of Clue.
“It’s not gaudy,” explains listing agent Steve Klein. “It’s built on a grand scale, but the rooms are all proportional. It’s beautiful.”
The 5 acres of grounds are worthy of a lengthy stroll. The gardens were created by Jon Carloftis, a landscape designer who has worked with Julianne Moore, Mike Myers, and Google.
The property sits next to Keene Trace Golf Course, which was designed by architect Arthur Hills. In July, the Champions Course at Keene Trace will host Kentucky’s first PGA Tour event since 1959: the Barbasol Championship. Golf fans could check in on the proceedings from one of the mansion’s wraparound terraces.
Just a few miles from Lexington, Nicholasville is home to the Kentucky Wine and Vine Fest, a celebration of local winemaking. So we’ll toast the two-story wine cellar that comes with the estate.
Built by the current owners in 2010, the two-story home surrounds the pool, creating a setting that’s ideal for entertaining friends and family, hosting events, and just enjoying life knowing that you live in the most expensive house in the state.
Covered porches, manicured gardens, bubbling fountains, and the adjacent golf course are also perfect for taking advantage of the state’s balmy weather.
So why spend $8 million on an apartment in San Francisco when you can live like royalty near a golf course in Kentucky? When viewed through the lens of comparable luxury, this Kentucky house is a steal!
