Description

Located in the heartland of Kentucky, history effortlessly meets modern luxury in this historic home. Perched atop a hill overlooking Greensburg's charming downtown district sits ''The Greensburg Academy'' - it was one of the Commonwealth's oldest private academies with roots dating back to 1794. The Academy's most notable educator, William Mentor Graham taught onsite between 1818 to 1823 - Mentor Graham later gained notoriety as he is credited with formally educating Abraham Lincoln. Prior to its recent conversion into a spectacular private residence, the property was utilized as a bed and breakfast. Since 2005, the current owners have spared no expense as they have lovingly restored and updated the property, all while retaining its status and authenticity as a National Register ofHistoric Places site. Original limestone walls adorn the property's boundaries, while a stately stone stairway greets owners and guests alike. The park-like driveway is lined with street lamps and showcases the 1.7 acres of lush gardens. Just over 3,300 square feet, the home features 5 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, a gourmet kitchen, an elegant dining room, a spacious outdoor cooking pavilion and a grand patio. Unmatched craftsmanship and historic preservation is displayed throughout the property with details such as: original yellow poplar wood floors, flemish bonded brick exterior, cedar shake roof, copper gutters, solid white oak doors, original handmade mantels, intricate stonework, and an original in-tact spring house. Modern amenities and notable updates include: replacement of the cedar shake roof, installation of new HVAC systems (including new duct work), replacement of all water, electric, and gas lines with underground passage (water and sewer lines are encased in 4inch diameter tubing), installation of new electric box (400 Amp service to the house and 200 Amp service to the pavilion), spray foam insulation, fireplace conversions to gas, full kitchen remodel with stainless appliances, addition of first floor bathroom, bathroom remodels on the existing 3 bathrooms, addition of 24 x 24 pavilion with state of the art appliances and Sonos speakers, patio with stone fire pit, extensive stone work, complete landscape overhaul and garden install (for more details - see the supplemental list of complete renovations and upgrades). The 1.7 acre lot provides a beautiful backdrop for special events, or a welcoming home to host family and friends. Located just 800 feet from the Green River Paddle Trail and within view of the shops, restaurants, and businesses of downtown Greensburg. This historic hideaway combines luxurious modern amenities with rich history- making this stunning property a rare gem.Property offered separately but could be a great addition to the other available properties at 2600 Gumm Springs Road ( a 111 acre black walnut tree farm) or 201 W. Hodgenville Avenue (commercial building- current owner uses as office and additional storage). Pre-approval or proof of funds necessary prior to scheduling showings- please give listing agents 48 hours notice to show.
