Master Built 1780’s Log Home

A two story “dog trot” hand-hewn log home dating to the late 1700’s is situated on the river’s edge in the Kentucky River Palisades in Versailles, KY. Now available for short term or long term lease. This is the quintessential country home situated on a 33 acre farm. Portions of the 2400 square foot hand-hewn log home circa 1780 were moved from Jessamine County by Long Wood of Lexington and southern Ohio and re-constructed in Kentucky by master builders. Featuring many historical elements which make this home unique yet modern, it’s a step back in time and a perfect place to relax and enjoy the garden outside the master bedroom or witness the early morning mists rising from the river below. Wildlife is abundant on the river’s edge. We’ve seen fox kits playing on the rock shelf below the house. The log home sits on approximately 8 acres of wooded and open area which would be the portion the farm for the enjoyment of the tenants. Horse boarding facilities are in the immediate area and numerous areas to ride.

Features include a large stone fireplace in the living room and private entrance door to the flower garden from the master bedroom. All historic wood floors, a stone foundation, three covered porches, metal roof, Kohler fixtures and all new appliances complete the picture. Three large bedrooms, one full bath with washer and dryer, large eat in kitchen with Corian counter tops, refrigerator, stove and dishwasher. Air conditioning and forced air heat, satellite TV and land line with internet connection available. Mowing is done by the landlord.
