Our front entrance opens to a myriad of surprises, from cathedral ceilings in the large sunroom to vaulted ceilings in the bedrooms, each of which comes equipped with sliding doors opening onto an old-style Kentucky porch, equipped with rocking chairs and spectacular sunset views.
As you slip into this suite, your feeling of being transported begins. Floor
to ceiling windows engulf you in the natural beauty of the Kentucky
countryside. The soft movement of the shade tree just outside the window

Past the kitchen with antique fittings, a vast living room with fireplace, a stunning dining room with floor to ceiling windows and cozy wainscoted den, you’ll find the jewel of the house at the north end: an Olympian sun room with a 360-degree view of the valleys. The floor to ceiling prairie-style windows allow a full embrace of natural light, while the décor mixes antiques, stained glass and art from around the globe. Guests may wish to gather in the sunroom to sip coffee while watching the sunrise over the misty valleys below.
A patio with fire pit and grill off the formal dining room allows guests to relax late in the evening overseeing a spectacular view of hillside and meadow. With 160 acres of fields, woods, and multiple creeks and ponds, there is also plenty to be seen on lovely nature walks around the property. Walking trails are mowed for your hiking or rambling pleasure.
