Situated a mere 4+/- miles from Keeneland Race Course, Chestnut Farm neighbors such
world-class Thoroughbred operations as WinStar Farm, Calumet Farm, Bluegrass Farm, Fares
Farm, Three Chimneys, Mill Ridge and Darley Jonabell, to name only a few.
Visitors to the farm will find it improved with a large, main residence (circa 1863, with
three bedrooms, three and a half bathrooms and appx. 3,700+/- square feet,) one large barn
featuring 19 stalls (each 15’ x 15’) along with numerous office/tack/feed rooms, and a
graciously-sized indoor and heated arena (48’ x 248’).
Also on the farm are two employee modular homes in very good condition and one large
equipment/hay shed, additionally in excellent condition.
Main Residence
The lovely main residence, constructed circa 1863, reflects both the age and geographic region in which it
was conceived. While not wholly faithful to the Italianate style of architecture—which was fashionable at the
time of its construction—the home maintains what historian Clay Lancaster refers to as “Italian proper” design.
The style was “...better suited to the agrarian civilization of Kentucky, not lacking in picturesqueness, appearing
as an integral part of its setting…” Chestnut Farm’s residence is indeed as attractive in its classical elements (the
centered roof pediment complete with trefoil, four-paneled double hung windows, cornices bordering the front
door, et cetera) as it is in its understated, Italian proper-style elegance. It measures approximately 3,700+/- square
feet, with three bedrooms and three and a half bathrooms.
(Clay Lancaster, Antebellum Architecture of Kentucky (Lexington: University Press of Kentucky, 1991), 286.)
Entry Foyer (Above Left)
A lovely foyer greets those entering the front door with a large, gracious staircase.
Parlor (Above Right)
Just to the right of the foyer is a parlor room, perfect for after dinner drinks or relaxing
upon the completion of a long day. The parlor walks out onto a useful, side screened in porch,
and is also conveniently connected to the home’s kitchen.
Formal Living Room (Below)
Opposite the parlor, and to the left of the foyer, is a large formal living room. The living
room adjoins the formal dining room (see next page) which makes for a wonderful entertaining
space.
Nota Bene: Almost all of the furnishings within the home are negotiable.
Formal Dining Room (Above)
The formal dining room
features a lovely wall mural of
Chestnut Farm, along with
windows overlooking the rear
gardens. It is connected to a 3/4
bathroom (above right,) as well as
the Kitchen.
Kitchen (Right)
At the epicenter of the
home, both literally and figuratively, is the kitchen. The kitchen has
been updated with newer
appliances, lovely cabinetry and
numerous built-ins. A small staircase leads from the kitchen to the
rear bedroom upstairs.
Den (Right)
The final room on the main
floor is a charming den. It is
anchored by a large fireplace, and
also maintains a rear entrance to
the home.
Not Pictured:
A useful laundry/utility/
half bathroom between the den and
kitchen. The washer & dryer have
been updated.
Master Suite (Above Left & Right)
The Master Suite is adjoined to a
lovely—and exceedingly comfortable–
master bath.
Rear Bedroom (Left)
The Rear Bedroom is atop the kitchen
below, and features a private staircase to the
downstairs.
Front Bedroom (Below Left)
As is the case with the Master Bedroom, the Front Bedroom also has a lovely
fireplace and large windows.
Upstairs Hall (Below Right)
The Grounds
Side Porch (Above)
A side porch has been thoughtfully screened
in, providing a comfortable outdoor space for
reading, dining, or welcoming guests. The door
opens up onto the Parlor.
Rear Elevation View (Above Right)
Rear Gardens (Right and Below)
I suppose we all have those days; often
times, it is refreshing to silence the cell phone, pour
a glass of one’s favorite vino and sit in the serenity
that is the rear garden of this home.
Surrounded by exquisite landscaping, and next to a lovely lake (complete with fountain) the rear
garden offers a space fit for a relaxing sanctuary or for a wonderfully entertaining party with friends.

The Lake
The lake that graces
Chestnut Farm is an abode to and
of itself; a gazebo is situated just
to the left of it, and provides a
unique spot for seclusion. An
underground well-system feeds
water into a stream from the
Gazebo to the lake, which can be
turned on or off with the flip of a
switch. The lake also features a
sonic weeding system and
numerous goose deterrents.
The Barn
An incredibly well-thought out and designed
barn, Chestnut Farm’s facility boasts 19 stalls
(measuring a generous 15’x15’ each) numerous office/
tack/feed rooms and large aisle ways to accommodate
equipment movement. What is most significant about
this barn, however, is the remarkable ventilation and
airflow that it maintains; during the heat of the day, it is
a welcome refuge for both you and your horses.
The front of the barn overlooks the lake and
gardens, but also maintains a front lawn of sorts that
would make for an ideal walking ring location. On the
whole, the barn is in very good condition.
NB: All farm equipment is also negotiable.
The Arena
Joined to the barn is a large, 48’ x 248’ indoor
arena and, like the barn, features heaters for the colder
months. Currently the arena houses several temporary
stalls, but is large enough to
accommodate other daily uses by the staff. The potential for a space such as this is considerable.
All of the information contained herein is deemed reliable but is not warranted; all figures, facts and boundaries are believed to be accurate

independent verification is strongly advised. The listing broker or broker associates recommend interested parties, prior to closing, perform
a complete property inspection (including but not limited to environmental assessments and percolation tests as may be necessary for
BUYER’S intended use of the property) have the land surveyed by a licensed surveyor, the title searched and inspected by an attorney and
any and all legal questions or concerns directed to legal counsel. The broker or broker associates will not advise on matters outside the
scope of their real estate license.
Employee Housing, Et Cetera...
Chestnut Farm maintains two very nice
modular homes that are currently used for
employee housing. In addition, there is a large
equipment shed just behind the barn which is
suitable for equipment, hay, et cetera.
