Imagine yourself back in the late 1800’s and pulling onto what was one of the largest plantations at that time in the area, in Lincoln County Kentucky! Located at 550 Fosters Lane in Stanford Kentucky is where you will find this one of a kind 54 acre farm for sale. There are 3 large barns, 3 ponds, a 4 bay garage/shop building, a new prefab log cabin and a spectacular tastefully renovated farmhouse.
This true farmhouse was built in the late 1800’s and recently been updated with all of the modern conveniences you could ask for. Walking in the front door you are greeted with a large open foyer with the original staircase for the home. There are 3 Bedrooms, 2 ½ baths, an office, sunrooms on each level, a formal parlor, formal dining room, and den for watching TV. The kitchen and adjoining dinning area have had no expense spared with granite countertops, glass back splashes, a large center island, gas cook top and double ovens. All of the bathrooms have been totally renovated with double vanities, and tile showers. The master bath on the main level even has a claw foot tub! Downstairs the ceilings are 11 1/2 ft tall and upstairs they are 10 1/2 ft tall in most of the rooms. There is a master suite on the main level as well as upstairs. Off the upstairs master bath is a large sunroom perfect for an exercise room or reading/crafting or sewing projects. Adjoining that room is a nice sized deck with spiral staircase down to the main patio level.
There are real hardwood floors throughout as well as ceramic tile in the laundry and mud room area. Many of the original features are in place and truly a site to see. From large custom baseboards and crown molding to ornate fireplaces that have had all of the tile reworked, each room as something different and unique to offer. The ceilings in some of the rooms are very tall and even the oversized pocket doors separating the parlor and formal dining room are in great working order.
The home has a combination propane gas heating unit with A/C system/air handler for each level, and a gas on demand hot water heater. A few of the added rooms are served with mini split units. There is city water and septic in place. This gorgeous home in the country for sale, sits way off the road so you have tons of privacy and with porches on all sides you can sit and enjoy the deer and turkey that are residents as well. Enjoy both the sunrise and sunsets on this beautiful Kentucky farm. The back patio has had a custom-built outdoor kitchen added and place to entertain. There is a fireplace, pizza oven, gas grill and refrigerator. Under the shade system on the pergola is a large table built out of barnwood lumber from an old barn that was taken down on the farm. All of the exterior lights have been replaced in the last 2 years.
There is a chicken coop for raising your own flock and eggs, fruit trees, and plenty of room for a garden. The pasture has recently added woven wire fencing, and the tractor barn (80’x46’) would make the perfect horse barn by adding a few stalls. There are 2 roll up doors on this barn that are 14’ tall and 12’ wide. There is plenty of flat ground next to that building for a large round pen or small arena. Behind the 4-bay garage/shop building (60’x40’) is an RV plug and freeze faucet for your camping friends that come to visit.
On the front of the farm is an original milking barn that could be renovated to shine just like the home. Perfect for a possible event venue? Across one of the fields is an older frame tobacco barn that needs some TLC and would be perfect for storing hay.
