FOR SALE $725,000

This Late Victorian style home (circa 1815) is nestled in the heart of historic downtown Bardstown Kentucky, the Bourbon Capital of the World. At 3000 square feet, this house has five bedrooms, six full baths, five decorative fireplaces, and sits on a beautiful half-acre lot. It is also on the National Register of Historic Places.

Walking up, you are greeted by a large covered front porch with a spacious sitting area. As you enter, you'll immediately notice the welcoming foyer, spacious dining room, large living room and a full bathroom all decorated with beautiful antiques.

There are four large private guestrooms, each with an ensuite bathroom and shower. Each guestroom has a television, and a comfortable sitting area to rest and relax. One king bedroom is located on the first floor off the foyer. Two kings and one queen bedroom are located on the second floor. Also on the second floor is the laundry room and a large linen closet.

Located conveniently next to the dining room, but separated for privacy, are the private owner's quarters. A Den, galley kitchen, and a bedroom with an ensuite bathroom with shower allows for a separate living space. In the bedroom is a private entrance to the home.

Off the dining room is a large, shaded deck overlooking a beautiful yard and koi pond. A historical 15 x 20 outdoor building in the backyard was remodeled in 2023 in accordance with local historical preservation guidelines. A second 10 x 10 storage building is also in the backyard. There are six off-street parking places behind the home and plenty of on-street parking in the front.

For the past six years we have been operating the home as an active Bed & Breakfast where we have proudly earned a TripAdvisor 5-star rating!

Because of the Bourbon Trail and Bardstown being ranked as one of the most beautiful small towns in America, this is a rare opportunity to begin a new chapter in the bourbon boom. This successful business is turnkey and ready; the website is active and taking reservations now with our booking engine and credit card processor. Now is the time to take advantage of the 2024 season!
