Woodford County
235 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. 

The 235 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 Nicholasville. Never will you see more abundant wildlife than at Pauls Mill including white tail trophy deer, wild turkey, and small and large mouth bass. 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 and four full and two half baths, exquisite woodwork, and modern kitchen and baths. 

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 new 20 stall yearling barn designed to look similar to existing structures complemented with a guest apartment; a 4 stall stallion barn with breeding area complete with a lounge that houses a restaurant-quality kitchen and guest suite; 5 additional renovated barns (one with an Aquaciser) with 21 additional stalls. In addition to the newly-created entrance adjacent to the stallion barn, the current owners have installed all new water lines and waterers (2009-2010); newly-paved roads; and installed roughly 70% new fencing (2009-2011). Additionally, Pauls Mill contains a guest home and a newly-built manager’s residence. $6,900,000.  Will Divide!
