This beautiful modern farm house is only six 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.
John and Flora Platt have lived on the family farm for 21 years and in this home for 6 of those years. We love this land and our surroundings, and it's more than simply a building when we talk about HOME.
John and Flora Platt purchased this house in 1792
We find this site is the perfect combination of country living and accessibility to Versailles, historic Midway, and Lexington.
Tranquility and beauty surround the home, so it's the perfect place to truly relax.
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!
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!
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.
The location is close to Keeneland, Woodford Reserve, Golf, and downtown Lexington which makes it a perfect place to call home base yet also provides a relaxing true country atmosphere. The property is beyond beautiful and the amenities are top of the line. Plenty of room for the entire family. John and Flora are great to work with and leave plenty of information on attractions in the area. I would highly recommend this property!!!
Beautiful home and gorgeous property!! Short drive to Keeneland. Close to downtown shops and restaurants. Owners are friendly and helpful.
Local scenery is extraordinary.
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.
