Kentucky Select Properties Completes Record-Breaking Sale of 259-Acre Kentucky Estate
Posted by Shelley Reynolds — December 11, 2017
LOUISVILLE, KY – Kentucky Select Properties, the top selling locally-owned and independent real estate company serving Louisville, Kentucky, has announced that Principal Broker John Stough and Agent Logan Ormerod have completed the sale of 1351 Stone Lane – part of a rare and extremely sizable property in Oldham County.
Kentucky Select Properties Managing Broker, Jay Gulick, and Agent/Co-Founder, Sandy Gulick, represented the buyers in the transaction. The home and acreage closed at $5 million; the highest-priced sale in the Louisville market for any transaction in 2017.
Situated on over 259 incredible acres adjoining Harrods Creek, this spectacular, low country home was designed by noted architect A. Hays Town, Jr. – widely known as the master of the Louisiana style, whose influence on Southern architecture can be seen throughout the United States. The home features four bedrooms, three-and-a-half baths, Louisiana two-inch-thick heart pine floors, hand-hewn Canadian white pine beams and a low country design with numerous porches. Notably, the bricks surrounding the home’s many fireplaces date to the pre-Civil War era, and are reported to have been taken from a smoke house on the Old Tapawingo Plantation in Henry County.
This incredibly appointed Southern country home is reached by a private drive that runs through - and was originally part of - Lavin Bloodstock Farm, a family compound and nationally renowned horse breeding operation home to two Preakness winners, a Breeder’s Cup winner and countless stakes-performing thoroughbreds. The balance of the farm (approximately 130 acres and an additional home) is also available for sale. The second home at 1401 Stone Lane is a stunning, circa 1815 Federal-style home called “Lawless.” At nearly seven thousand square feet, “Lawless” boasts four bedrooms, three-and-a-half baths and an impressive tree-lined drive leading to its entrance. The asking price of “Lawless” is $3,920,000.
Says Selling Agent and Principal Broker John Stough, “It was truly a pleasure to broker the sale of this one-of-a-kind Kentucky property. It’s not often that such a rare opportunity arises for continuous Bluegrass acreage, already-constructed luxury homes and a 50-year legacy in the thoroughbred industry. We look forward to also finding the right buyer for the sister property at 1401 Stone Lane – another part of Kentucky architectural and equestrian history.”
