Description

Seldom Scene Farm and its 273+/- acres (in three individual tracts!) epitomize Bluegrass tranquility. The current owners discovered the property when kayaking down the Kentucky River (which borders the farm for 1.5 miles), eventually purchasing the land from descendants of the Watts family, beneficiaries of early land grants. The farm's setting has been immortalized in both Paul Sawyier paintings and National Geographic. The main residence is a homage to Kentucky craftmanship, built with Douglas fir and Western Red Cedar. It features a dry stacked stone fireplace and a desirable first floor primary suite. A restored c. 1812 cabin serves as a guest cottage, currently used as a successful Airbnb. The cottage boasts sunny spaces with historic hand-hewn logs and reclaimed woods from the original cabin, as well as modern-rustic details. Another historic cabin was converted for further housing. 2 garages (one with an apt) protect vehicles & farm equipment. An attractive horse barn add 4 stalls and more storage, while 2 tobacco barns add 4 additional stalls. Recreational opportunities abound for fishing (in the river or 2 ponds), hiking, sporting clays, and boating.
