about this listing

795 Bethlehem Road, Paris, Kentucky


Offered for the first time since being extensively renovated, the ca. 1810 Jacob Aker Farm has everything the discerning farm buyer may desire. Measuring appx. 50+/- acres of very good land, the farm has been laid out by horsemen, for horsemen with an eye for the farm's preservation & ease of operation. The home dates from ca. 1810 when Revolutionary War veteran Jacob Aker constructed a brick, Federal-style residence. As Aker grew in prominence and wealth, the lovely Greek Revival addition was added ca. 1858. The home has since been entirely renovated & restored, while maintaining its exceptional architectural & historical significance. The farm maintains a very nice 8-stall barn (with apartment & tack/feed room,) a 190' x 160' outdoor arena and automatic waterers in almost all paddocks & fields. It is comprised mostly of Faywood & Lowell soils with numerous, outstanding old trees. Truly, the Aker Farm is a property which must be seen to fully appreciate.
