about this listing

3901 Ironworks Pike, Lexington, Kentucky


Constructed ca. 1929 as a wedding gift for Mr. & Mrs. Harkness Edwards of Walnut Hall Stud, this stone manse is one of the most splendid and beautiful residences in Central Kentucky. Superbly located on a 41.91-acre parcel surrounded by the world-renowned Kentucky Horse Park, the farm maintains a position overlooking the lake & jumping stadium; a spectacularly one-of-a-kind locale. Designed by McMeekin & Gratz, the main residence boasts over 11,000 sq. ft., which includes eight bedrooms, a library, formal living & dining rooms, several guest suites, theater, billiards room, safe/wine storage and a bar. The limestone was quarried on-site and was also utilized for the extensive rock walls surrounding. The property also maintains a matching stone three-car garage with apartment above, as well as a very nice guest house. There remains no other place on Earth comparable to this magnificent retreat; a rare-jewel for the truly discriminating individual.
