ASHLEY HOUSE FARM
2025 Midway Road
Ideally-located across Midway Road from Lane's End Farm and Aiken Road from Governor Jones' Willow Springs Farm, Ashley House Farm is comprised of some of the best soils the Bluegrass has to offer! With over 95% of "prime" farm land and over 63% of Maury soils (the best in the Bluegrass), this 237 acre horse farm contains four horse barns with 57 stalls. In addition to its frontage on Midway Road, Ashley House Farm has over a mile of frontage on desirable and quiet Aiken Road.
The centerpiece of Ashley House Farm is the historic c.1903 Lucas Brodhead House - a Classic Kentucky home in the optimum of settings.
A dry-laid rock fence, patterned after the 1864 fence facing Stonewall Farm, fronts Midway Road for the full road frontage. This turn-of-the-century, grandly-scaled Colonial home is located at the end of a quarter-mile tree-lined drive.
The interior of this classic two-and-a-half story home had been sensitively restored in the mid-1980's and features 9-1/2 foot ceilings on both floors, oak flooring, and unique oak and walnut trim woodwork. The grand entry hall features hand-painted French wallpaper depicting Eurasian garden and city scenes. This wide hall opens with double pocket door to its gracious living and dining rooms. An office; library; breakfast room; large, unique butler's pantry; and commercial-grade kitchen are also found on the first floor—along with a back hall with a rear entrance and powder room.
The second floor contains four bedrooms (all with fireplaces), three large full baths (two with fireplaces), a sitting room, and a large open family room in the second floor landing—plus a rear hall leading to a Z-shaped upper deck. The front of the home features a 13' x 75' brick porch supported by Tuscan columns.
