From the Zillow listing:


On almost 5 acres overlooking beautiful rolling Bluegrass sits this Classic Folk Victorian main house PLUS a 2 bed 2 bath guest house. Multi-Generational Living in this historic property just off the BG Parkway in the heart of Bourbon country! This property was built by the McKenna family of McKenna Whiskey fame, and is just down the street from the original distillery. The property has undergone many updates, most recently an entire new roof and roof deck on the main house. Most of the original wide plank ash flooring and beautiful stained glass windows remain. If you’ve longed for an historic home with documented provenance, this could be your chance! Both homes are comfortable, and give the opportunity to live there and renovate as you wish. The exterior needs some of the wood siding replaced and a fresh coat of paint to bring back the absolute beauty of the architecture. The current owners have made significant improvements; you can take up the mantle from here and save a true Kentucky treasure!! No Historic Registry requirements. Sq ft reflects the main house. The additional guest house has 2173 sq ft
