Woodford County
105 Acres

Property Description

Pauls Mill is an estate-quality horse farm adaptable to any discipline - and suited to a privately-run concern or a commercially-viable operation. It is a place of serene beauty that has the look and feel of times gone by; the current owners have dedicated themselves to preserving the historic nature of the buildings yet offer fabulous state-of-the-art facilities. Pauls Mill has captured the ambiance and feeling of Kentucky's past while remaining a vital part of Kentucky's future.

This 105 acres of Pauls Mill is situated within a lovely small valley of the south fork of Clear Creek in Woodford County within an easy drive of Lexington, Versailles, and Midway. The main residence - one of the finest examples of Federal architecture found in Kentucky - is a classic brick one and a half story residence built in 1812-13 with a cut limestone foundation. Its 4,700 square feet features five bedrooms, four full and two half modern baths, exquisite woodwork, and gourmet kitchen.

The former grist mill, a superb two and a half story stone structure, is one of a precious few Woodford County buildings listed on the National Historic Register. Currently utilized as the farm's office, it was once utilized as a dramatic guest house - the gears of the old mill wheel sit side by side with today's computer technology.

With a keen eye for property, Ben Walden has developed Pauls Mill into a thoroughbred nursery that is second to none.Steeped in a rich history and set in tradition, Pauls Mill has been meticulously restored preserving its historical value by teams of stone masons and carpenters. With the addition of miles of new roads, fences, waterlines, and equine facilities, Pauls Mill is a perfect marriage of the old and the new.

Horse improvements include a renovated 22 stall foaling/broodmare barn; a 4 stall stallion barn with breeding area complete with a 1,850 square foot lounge that houses a restaurant-quality kitchen and guest suite; 3 additional renovated barns (one with an Aquaciser) with 17 additional stalls.In addition to the newly-created entrance adjacent to the stallion barn, the current owners have installed new water lines and waterers (2009-2010); newly-paved roads; and installed mostly new fencing (2009-2011). $4,250,000.
