Wake Robin c. 1806, Perryville Kentucky
In addition to being an amazingly picturesque 1801-1806 Stone Estate on up to 69.5 gorgeously rolling acres -- and one of the oldest Stone homes West of the Alleghenies and certainly one of the oldest in Kentucky - this place belonged to George Clooney's grandmother and he spent a lot of time here as a child. ; ) Larger than it looks on the outside, it has 5 fireplaces
4 bedrooms, 2 baths, 2 barns up to 4 barns, grain bin, Silo and feed lot, 9' and 10' ceilings, Hand-Hewn oak beams,
Heart Pine floors, 2' thick walls - massively constructed with massive integrity built in the traditional German craftsmanship style. The foundation is three feet thick, the walls are 2 feet thick and hewn out of Kentucky marble. The kitchen needs work and it doesn't have air conditioning, but other than that, every room is gorgeous and filled with original detail. "Basement" is a massive stone room with fireplace that is being touted as a potential "bourbon room" or wine room. Another big plus is that although it's secluded in prime Blue Grass country, it's 10 minutes or so from town and a starbucks, movie theaters etc. I'm linking the video which contains a fascinating tour of the entire property. This place would be ideal for a certain Kentucky home gal I know.... Oh yeah. The price. If you just want the house, two barns, stream on 18.592 acres you can walk away with it for just $395k or $1400 a month lease.
