1938 Classical Revival Mansion With Circular Stairway On 197 Acres Can Be Yours For $4,495,000!


This property is a remarkable offering, known as The Fortress at 5000 because of the main residence’s incredibly durable concrete construction. Surrounded by 197+/- acres of Central Kentucky’s finest land, this magnificent six-bedroom estate is as distinctive as it is lovely. Constructed in 1938, the house’s infrastructure was largely made of concrete, and its design prioritized strength, longevity, and style. The elaborate plaster medallions hanging from the 12 foot ceilings in the huge formal dining room, parlor, study, entry foyer, and family dining room are complemented by rugs that coordinate with the medallion designs.

French-style marble mantles, salvaged from the demolition of Elmendorf Farm’s historic Green Hills Mansion, encircle the first-floor fireplaces. Once you climb the stunning circular staircase to the second story, you will find six spacious ensuite bedrooms with 10-foot ceilings—a remarkable rarity for the home’s building era. Not far behind the beautifully manicured yard are two more Tobacco Barns, some of Kentucky’s most breathtaking terrain, and a real brick Hemp Barn (50×100).
