    Build date given was 1890 but felt it was earlier than that. Not the most sensitive updates but considering the land and view, think it would be worth taking the home back a bit.

    Agree on earlier build date, based on my newel post obsession 🙂 Maybe 1870’s? I wish we could find this in IL for this price. So private!

    I LOVE that the kitchen has a fireplace!

    Nice floors and good kitchen. I love this place and I can’t believe the price!

    Not the most exciting house but in the right hands it could shine. Beautiful setting. Nice above ground pool, LOL. When I was a kid our neighbors two houses down had one of those and were too lazy to winterize it one year. Around about mid January it collapsed. There were ice chunks two feet thick. It was like a glacier slid through the yard. Destroyed their shed, LMAO!

    Agreed that the newel post and staircase indicate an earlier than 1890 construction date. Some of the window trim is decidedly Greek Revival in style so the oldest part of the house could be from the Antebellum era or a post-War Greek Revival-Italianate transitional hybrid. Bardstown itself (which we drove through a few months ago) has some amazing historic architecture. Between Bardstown and Lexington are some of the finest thoroughbred horse farms in the world with grand stables approaching mansion-like status. (the elaborate property entry gates themselves are status symbols) This property with outbuildings and over 5 acres seems reasonably priced for the area.

      Thanks for the complement on my hometown! I have no idea where this farm is, though. Bardstown doesn’t have a lot of Thoroughbreds. Mostly Quarter Horses due to the county fair. Most farms were cattle, with horses for the kids.

    Browns Lane is about 8-10 min down 62 to Bloomfield where producer Jerry Bruckheimer owns a fab house. His wife owns Nettie Jarvis antiques in Bloomfield. The other direction on 62 takes you to Lawrenceburg. This house is very close to the BG Parkway for commuting. I have a good friend who lives in Chaplin and it’s not far from where I live.

    Having family in that area (Frankfort, Louisville, Shelbyville, Lexington, etc.) the Bardstown area is quintessential Kentucky. The Bruckheimers have actually put a lot of money into the economy in the area. Just stayed at Springhill Winery last year when my nephew got married. I’m not at all any kind of expert in either period homes or restoration (I just really enjoy looking at the homes on this site), but I found the mansion at Spring Hill to be poorly and cheaply renovated for a B&B unfortunately. A magnificent home underneath the cheap divisions, but it looks really odd with no chimneys. The current owners apparently took them down rather than repairing them.

    My kinda living, away from everyone lol

    Bardstown really isn’t away from everyone. This is Bourbon and horse country and has been settled a long time. It’s rural, but a rural full of old families and property and homes. Not out in the sticks rural.

    The view from the road is deceptive, making it look like the house is in the middle of nowhere. If you look at the land survey, though, you can see that the house is almost at the back boundary. One of the exterior photos shows the nearby red brick house of a neighbor. I think I’d rather have the house more centered on the property. The house itself, though, is nice. I like how they just used a whole bedroom to create a bathroom, rather than dividing up a bedroom by adding oddly-angled walls. Love the colors!

    Are those grave headstones at the entrance to the property?

      While There is a small Pioneer Cemetery in downtown Bardstown , it was not uncommon for families in this are to keep an area of their property as the family plot. Descendants of those buried may respectfully visit the graves by law. Most contact the owner before such a visit and are quite proud of their genealogies. They may prove rich sources of information regarding the land, home, and remodels.

    Where? I don’t see any gravestones.

    It’s a cemetery, says so on the map in the last pic. Says it’s sealed from plat, so guess that means it’s not included.
