Why Matt Blanford chose Oakland

This property was originally built as the Oakland School in 1926. As the community grew it was abandoned in the1970s as a larger elementary school was built to accommodate the area. The old school had been neglected and was falling apart. I drove past this building several times and knew it had to be saved and shared with others for years to come.

What makes this estate unique

The location is great for visiting the entire Bowling Green area. Located near exit 36 off of I-65 provides a quick, easy drive to all attractions.

GM Corvette Assembly Plant, National Corvette Museum and Motorsports Park is less than 10 minutes away at Exit 28.

The Kentucky Transpark is only four miles away

This old school was beautifully renovated, tastefully decorated and appointed.

  • 5 of 5

We had a family reunion of three families from Illinois, California and Michigan meet for a long weekend to see the eclipse.

We chose this location because it was one property that could house 7 adults and 4 teenagers comfortably and it was near the path of the total eclipse. We really lucked out- the house accommodated all the space and amenities we needed and the skies were clear. Thank you Blanford House for an extraordinary experience!

We are four couples living in Louisville, KY who have been traveling together each summer for a long weekend of golf, cards, drinks, food and fun for 35 years. This home was perfect for us. Lots of space. Lots of bedrooms. Very well equipped. Everything in working order. It's a quirky, fun house. We would recommend it highly and we intend to stay there again next summer.

Blanford home

  • 5 of 5

This home is amazing and very spacious. We held a family reunion for about 30 people with almost half staying at the home. Everyone was delighted. Especially with having family meals together inside the large kitchen. Would recommend this place and plan to use it for future gatherings.
