About the property

4200 Sq. Ft., 5 Bedroom, 3.5 Bath, 6-acre Yard Surrounded by 250-acre Farm

This beautiful modern farm house is only seven years old but looks as if it has always belonged where it is. Located on a working family farm, it is still only one mile from downtown Versailles, less than 15 minutes from Keeneland, 20 minutes from Lexington attractions, and within 30 minutes of several historic bourbon distilleries. Woodford Reserve Distillery is only six miles (about 10 minutes) down incredibly scenic McCracken Pike. The Kentucky Horse Park is just over 30 minutes NE of here.

The five bedrooms include a first-floor master suite with king-sized bed (bathroom has air jet tub and shower that is also a steam shower), two second-floor queens that share a full bath with separate shower and clawfoot tub, and two downstairs bedrooms, one king and one queen, that share a bathroom with shower-tub combo. All three full baths have two sinks. Downstairs rec room is 800 sq. ft. and contains a 48-inch flatscreen tv (Wii and satellite tv), pool and air hockey tables, and dart board.

Living room includes a beautiful fireplace with elevated hearth (firewood supplied), a loaded bookshelf, and a cushioned window seat that is another wonderful place to just BE. Plenty of board and card games are available in the drawers below the window seat.

Because the second floor is only a half-story, the gourmet kitchen and adjacent dining room feature vaulted ceilings over 20 feet high. A second-floor loft overlooks the area and includes a smaller television. It can also be a great space for yoga or a similar workout routine. Kitchen includes induction cooktop, double ovens, an adjoining bar area, copper sink, soapstone countertops, and all necessary appliances and utensils. Massive picture windows throughout the home feature beautiful views of surrounding yard and farm.

Dine in, or, if the weather cooperates, enjoy a meal on our spacious screened porch. The suspended bed is perfect for an afternoon nap or time spent with a great book. A pet miniature pig and three outdoor cats may come to say hello and are entertaining sights as they patrol the yard, but they will require no care and little contact (if that is your preference).

This is a comfortable yet elegant family-friendly home. We know you'll love it as much as we do.

Wonderful weekend in beautiful setting

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful visit! House is in a gorgeous setting, peaceful, comfortable, plus the owners thought of everything! Loved the steam shower, open kitchen, stone fireplace, and screened porch. Great spot to come back and relax with some bourbon at night! Owners were great to work with! Definitely will be back!

The home is just as advertised; spacious, light and airy, well appointed. We were centrally located

  • 5 of 5

Dufont was the perfect place for our New Hampshire friends and family to gather with us for the week surrounding our son's wedding in Versailles. Plenty of space for everyone to gather together. Also plenty of private areas for folks to have some quiet, down time. Also the bedroom/bathroom layout was perfect for all us getting ready on the big day! Plenty of room for parking and convenient to the airport and local attractions. Sunrise from the back porch and sunset from the living room were spectacular!

Great home for family gathering or sharing w couples

  • 5 of 5

Our family was able to celebrate Christmas together in this home. Two sons and their wives with three grandchildren-the house was perfect layout with space to spare. The owners are welcoming and accommodating. Close to activities if desired or for us a great place to chill and enjoy being together.

Country Living Convenient to Everywhere

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Dufont! The place is a real gem. Located on a 250 acre farm it has charm and wide open spaces as well as all the modern conveniences. The house is comfortable and functional at the same time. The large kitchen is a perfect gathering place for breakfast. The bedrooms were large and comfortable and everything was sparkling clean. We had grandchildren with us and they loved the pet pig and other farm animals as well as the ability to roam the grounds. The owners could not have been nicer in offering to help in any way they could. We would definitely return!

Owner's Response: We are so glad that you found your stay at Dufont to be comfortable and convenient for your family reunion. Thanks for giving the pig and his cat entourage some attention, too. Please look us up if you are back in the area as you are welcome to stay here anytime!

Beautiful Property

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at this house. It's a beautiful rental that is very well-maintained. Also very well-stocked with kitchen items, etc. We didn't use the pool but it looked very nice. We hope to return!

Owner's Response: We are so glad you enjoyed your stay for your reunion. It was music to our ears to hear you talking and laughing on the porch when we came to feed the animals. You all are welcome back anytime!

Wonderful home, property and location.

  • 5 of 5

We were in Lexington for a week-long horse show and found the location perfect for travel to the KHP as well as throughout the area's attractions. The home is just as presented on-line, and owners super to work with. We will return again and recommend this lovely farm. You can not beat the Kentucky scenic roads that surround the farm for exploring the bluegrass region.

Only one mile from beautiful, historic downtown versailles and only two miles from the largest kroger in kentucky. A wonderful service available at our kroger is the option to order groceries ahead of time and have them ready and waiting for pick-up at a specific time. Search kroger website for their versailles location, set up an account, shop online, set your delivery date and time, and the first three times you use this service it's free. You don't even have to leave your vehicle when it's time for pick-up.
