KESSLER SHOW STABLES
2314 Iron Works Pike
Kessler Show Stables - Absolutely the finest, most complete sport horse facility in all of Central Kentucky.
Murray and Teri Kessler purchased this farm in 2012 and have developed it into the finest sport horse facility one could ever dream to own. Previously a thoroughbred farm, the Kessler's have transformed this exceptionally well-located farm into a facility whose quality of improvements are well-suited for the top tier of sport horse competition. Since their acquisition, the Kessler's have constructed an irrigated 180' x 250' outdoor ring with "French footing". They had Jack Hart construct the ultimate 100' x 200' indoor arena. The footing is wax mixed by the same person who did the London 2012 Olympics (their daughter Reed competed there for the USA).
Additionally, they constructed a mammoth 400' x 400' irrigated Derby field which is modeled after Spruce Meadows including Grob & Table (both to Spruce Meadows specs), open water, double and single liver pools, natural hedges, and gravel ditch.
You'll discover the most gracious of living in the Classic Kentucky-style home designed by noted architect, Tom Wilmes, and built by Mike Warner. Accessed via a mature tree-lined driveway, this approximately 7,300 square foot Greek Revival home features a copper roof, bluestone porches, and architectural features chosen to emulate older homes that has a look and feel that it's been a part of our Central Kentucky countryside for years, such as custom windows, Kentucky chestnut oak flooring, tall ceilings, and thick moldings.
A restored circa 1800's cabin is separated from the main residence by a stream which cuts through creek stone banks edged with grasses and perennials allowing sights and sounds that change with the seasons.
The Kessler's also renovated all the barns to sport horse style (4-48 stalls) plus appropriate wash and grooming stalls, added an additional covered walker, turn-out sheds, and constructed a slip-proof driveway.
The farm is accessed via three tree-lined entrances and is complemented by two employee houses and a metal hay/equipment building. $11,250,000.
