This mansion, called the Kenston, was built by financier and president of Lexington Motor Car Company Kinsey (Kinzea) Stone and his family.

All woodwork has been refinished, 90% of the house has been rewired, some of the plumbing replaced when a bathroom was remodeled. 3 zoned air and radiator heat with 1 HP. There is an elevator to the 2nd floor from the basement. 3rd floor is known to be the ballroom. Just imagine greeting your guest from the porte-cochere walking into the grand hall. Lovely hand carved woodwork, mantles, inlay flooring, stain-glass windows, butlers pantry and so much more. The pictures won’t tell the story – you need to see it in person.
