1700 Watts Ferry Road, Versailles, Kentucky


End of the World Farm and its 167± acres epitomize Bluegrass tranquility. So special is the setting that beloved painter Paul Sawyier immortalized the region and its surroundings in his “Lover’s Leap” and other works. National Geographic showcased the farm & its descendants in its May 1974 edition feature on the Bluegrass.

The Kentucky River borders a portion of the farm, a glistening backdrop to the historic cabin and horse barn, tobacco barn, dense woods, open fields, and trails.

With the farm’s proximity to attractions like Woodford Reserve (4 miles), Castle & Key (6 miles), Buffalo Trace (13 miles), Buckley Wildlife Sanctuary (4 miles), Keeneland (18 miles), Kentucky’s State Capitol (13 miles), the cabin could make for a charming AirBNB!

The smartly-designed horse barn adds 4 stalls and further storage, while a classic tobacco barn is a nod to the farm’s agricultural heritage. Fenced paddocks provide equine utility.

Recreational opportunities abound for fishing, hiking, sporting clays, or hunting. A wildlife observation tower allows breathtaking views.

Much of the farm remains wooded, creating a haven for deer, wild turkeys, songbirds, foxes, coyotes, owls, wood ducks, bobcats, raccoons, & more. Several conservation projects have preserved native trees, as well as grasses and wildflowers. The property has also been well-known for its cultivation of champion alpacas, and has been a successful home for horses, llamas, sheep and goats.
