A complete the renovation of this old brick home in Mason County was completed in 1987. The historic Kenton Ash House was built c1801 by Richard Durrett on land purchased directly from frontiersman Simon Kenton. Updated with new electrical and plumbing as well as a new kitchen and bathrooms, and a newly installed metal roof. A historic log structure from Mason County was moved to the property and adjoined to the house to serve as a unique kitchen with loft space above. The striking home is set on a beautifully forested knoll above 10+ rolling acres of rural farm land, with early stone out buildings, feed barn, large pond and family cemetery. Featuring fine Flemish bond brickwork with rubbed brick water table and shaped brick cornice, stone basement with remnants of an early kitchen hearth, with dual parlors, four bed rooms, three baths, dining room, study, unfinished basement and attic. Remaining original features include twelve-over-twelve sash wavy glass windows, paired gable-end chimneys, eight original federal era mantels, some with distinctive chevron carving, chair rails, paneled doors and dual interior stairs, all in a unique double-pile design with paired front entrance doors. Less than one mile from Old Washington, a small but thriving historic community established in 1786, within 45 minutes of Cincinnati and about an hour north of Lexington. - Previously for sale with reduced acreage, the farm now has 10.277 acres of farm land, qualifying it for Kentucky's farmstead tax exemption. *Note: This home is eligible for nomination to the National Register of Historic Places, the house can qualify for a tax credit for up to 40% of qualified rehabilitation expenses.

    This one has loads of appeal: an interesting and even beautiful exterior, and some nice interiors. The six-bay, twin door facade of the brick portion is quite handsome. I only wish there were some better overall photos of the exterior, but it looks like the vegetation may be the culprit. It would be nice, too, to have a better sense of the interior: the stairs and circulation and plan, at least with a house that doesn’t have a classical center hall or side-hall plan.

    Does this really have two front doors like a Pennsylvania house? I didn’t know they did this anywhere outside of PA. The exterior chimneys are interesting, and attractive IMO. The house has some great details. I liked seeing the exposed log wall on the interior of the hyphen, even though that may not have been the way they did it originally.

    I think Robert is right-this house has a lot of details and we are seeing only a few. It would also be nice to know the exact acreage that comes with the property. I would expect the house to have some interesting history as well.

    Back on the market. Updated with new photos showing more of the house exterior and a few more interior photos. Acreage is 10.28.

    I couldn’t figure out if there’s a kitchen in the main house or if that’s the actual kitchen in the log cabin. The price looks like it jumped from $150,000 to the current price. The added acreage apparently now qualifies it for certain historical tax breaks. I’m just not sure if the current price is worth the breaks you’d receive. I’d only wish we’d seen this earlier as Kentucky is on our short list of states to retire too.

    Looking at Google Maps, there isn’t anything like this house at the address listed.

    I like the place. Clean up those barns and sheds, do some this and that, get a pot still and Ghost Busters and I’d be home. Lots of houses nearby and all sorts of farms too.

    This stone home reminded me of the whisky distillery houses in Scotland. The home itself is magnificent. Any photos of the inside of the barns? I can’t tell if they are goners. Both barley and corn grow well in Kentucky… this would be a nice little spot to farm some whiskey grain and have a unlicensed still. *Ahem* I mean, grow some corn and barley and sell it at Lexington’s farmer’s market.
