March 12, 2019

Built in 1939. Designed by renowned architect, Robert McMeekin. The pool and the gardens are extraordinary! All of their children must be grown and gone. I would have teenagers using sippy cups in there. Located on 3.11 acres in Lexington, Kentucky. Seven bedrooms, seven bathrooms, and 8,208 square feet. $4,175,000

From the Zillow listing:


This iconic federal revival estate designed by renowned Robert McMeekin begins as you drive along the stone stacked wall and turn in at the long front drive amid mature trees, providing privacy and seclusion, towards the estate home situated in the center of Lexington. As you enter this coveted estate you will be overwhelmed at the attention to detail and design in every inch of this home. The sellers re-created this estate upon purchase into a modern and luxurious home while still maintaining the character and charm of the 1940s. The synergy between the new and the old is fluid and extraordinary.
