917 HUTCHISON ROAD
Located in the heart of the Bluegrass, on 39 rolling acres, sits the historic estate of Brooklawn Farm. Built in 1782, the classic, 1.5 story brick federal home overlooks rich pastures, and the year-round creek that winds through the farm. The interior of the home boasts lofty ceilings height, stately staircase, and much of the original trim work and ash flooring. Copper gutters and flashing, restoration woodwork and rebuilt dormers accentuate the repointed masonry work and roof added in 2007, giving you a head start towards your restoration dreams. While interior restorations are still needed, the extensive exterior restoration work done in the last 12 years, has this stately home simply awaiting someone to bring it back to its former glory. Outside the home, mature trees dot the ample yard space, creating a beautiful area for outdoor entertaining or even an events venue, having already played host to a lovely farm wedding.
Well-situated in the farm are both an older barn with 9 stalls and a small tack room and a newer metal sided building with electric. Raised garden beds sit just past the latter. Surrounding the barn are three paddocks and four larger fields, all with water access. There are automatic waterers in 3 of the turnouts, with the largest field having access to the creek, and its multiple natural springs. The farm is fenced and cross fenced with older board fencing.
The land itself is highly usable, with excellent soil and grass quality, making it an ideal property for a variety of endeavors. While most recently it has been utilized as a Thoroughbred nursery, the land lends itself to raising livestock and other farming possibilities.
While the farm is waiting for someone to breathe some new life into it, an automatic gate welcomes you as you arrive, and there is already existing septic, electric, and a good working well on the property.
Centrally located with impressive road frontage on both Bethlehem and Hutchison roads, 6 miles to Paris, and just a short drive to downtown Lexington, Hamburg Pavilion, the Kentucky Horse Park, area farms, and amenities, this property could truly become an estate to be enjoyed for generations to come.Currently listed as one 39 acre parcel, however, owners are open to possibility of subdividing.
