HOW CAN THIS BE?   The best place to buy a home priced between $100,000 and  $119,999 in Central Kentucky is not Lexington.  No, it is Woodford County.  Versailles is the County Seat and it is also the home to some of the largest and most prestigious horse farms.  Some of these farms include: Winstar Farm, Three Chimneys Farm, Fallbrook Farm, Brittany Farm and Sunrise Stable are a few of these prestigious Thoroughbred Horse Farms in Woodford County. There are currently 12 months of inventory for homes that are priced between $100,00 and $119,999 in Woodford County.  Most of these homes can be bought with little money down and a payment that would be less than what you could rent the same home. This absorption rate means that you have the selection of a large number of homes over a long ...

Midway KY Is A Point Midway Between Lexington And Frankfort KY Last Thursday I got to re-visit Midway KY. It hadn't been in the plan earlier in the week but I received a voicemail from someone that was researching to do a real estate article on Midway. I think they had read what I wrote earlier posted on Localism. Midway, Kentucky is a Tourist's Secret! Shhhhhhhh!  Anyway, I was asked to contribute some quotes and a few pictures. I sure didn't need much of a reason to want to go back. That place is magical! So...I asked one of my best friends to accompany me for the day and we loaded up the camera and notepad and we were off. We laughingly called ourselves, "Blonde Roving Reporters"!! We first drove around town to get a better idea of what kind of what was available in housing and the t...

Versailles KY - Nice Cold Day To Pre-view Kentucky Horse Farms - Woodford County When I was making my coffee this morning, the temperature was only 19 degrees! Good day to stay in and get some office work done, I thought. That lasted until I got a text from a client that asked about a horse farm in Versailles KY she wants to take a look at in January. There were a few questions and a few pictures needed. As I glanced out the window as I sipped my coffee. I saw the sky was blue(no clouds) and the thermometer said it had warmed up to sultry 25 degrees. I put a call in to my side kick #1 agent, Monica Hess. She's always ready to go explore horse farms and take photos. I asked her if she might be up for a quick road trip to Versailles KY to take a look at a specific farm on Troy Pike in Woo...

The Glitz at Irish Acres In Nonesuch KY I think I love the address as Nonesuch KY as much as I love the destination at Irish Acres. Who would imagine that such a fancy place for lunch would exist like The Glitz? For years, I have been taking unsuspecting guests and clients with me to surprise them with this restaurant way out in the country. When you arrive, it looks just like an old brick two story 1936 elementary school. After you park and walk to the double doors in front you still have no idea what is in store. I love the look on a new guest's face when they step inside Irish Acres! It's like you have transported to fantasyland! This time I took my executive assistant, Jane as a Christmas treat that I plan to be a tradition from now on. She was just amazed at all the antiques, the f...

Woodford County KY - Kentucky Horse Farms - Versailles - Midway - Horse Farm For Sale One of the most beautiful areas in Central Kentucky is Woodford County.

We finished our Auto Pull of the Virtual Tours on LBAR. Now when our listings are entered thru the Mls and the tour code put in, it will show in a prominent place on our web site. It has been my goal for a long time to have a company with a complete commitment to what the consumer is looking for as far as visual presentation of Real Estate. Our videos will be up within the week and the interest in the site by word of mouth only is very encouraging. BlueGrass Trophy Properties

Midway Kentucky - Historic Downtown - Homes for sale in Midway KY Are you looking for homes for sale in historic downtown Midway Kentucky? I've been there many times but I am amazed how much it is starting to feel like being in the wine country towns of California.  The charming little town of Midway has a plentiful amount of restaurants, great food, and shops.  Later, we took a stroll down the sidewalks of the downtown formerly called "Middleway"...now Midway KY. It was named that by railroad executives because it was both halfway between Lexington and Frankfort and halfway between a potential line from Georgetown and Versailles. Maybe they should have called it "Halfway". The first lot sold in 1835. Home of Midway College(Kentucky's only 4 year women's college) that was chartered as T...

Historic Midway Kentucky Over the years, I have spent some time over in historic Midway, Kentucky. I'm amazed how much it is starting to feel like being in the wine country towns of California.  The charming little town has a plentiful amount of restaurants, great food, and shops. I have had some fabulous meals at Quirk. One favorite: I had the HUGE pimento sandwich with a cup of tomato basil soup. Both were the best I have had in forever! YUM!
