Don’t miss this great new listing in Carriage Estates. Even if you’re from Lexington, you’ll probably say “Carriage Estates? Where’s that?”
Just off Man O’War and up off Pimlico Parkway, is a lush and lovely little neighborhood of Carriage Estates. Many of the neighborhood homes back to a golf course and almost all of them have mature trees, emerald green lawns, and large yards with plenty of room to play and relax. Most of the homes were built just before builders stopped making hardwood floors a standard feature in living rooms. There are quite a few split-foyer homes in Carriage Estates like this one but there’s a real comfort, livability and storage space in split foyers that give you a lot more space than you’ll find in a lot of today’s new construction homes built on a slab.
This home is one of those fantastic finds for the money! When my seller purchased it, she was immediately attracted to how open the space was, the quality of the workmanship, the wonderful improvements that had been made (updated HVAC, windows, roof, kitchen, baths) and the large yard. She also loved the beautiful hardwood floors and the luxury of a second living space on the lower level. One of the nice qualities of a split foyer is that your lower level (technically a basement) is mostly above grade and walks-out to the backyard, so you never feel like your down in a hole (i.e. small children aren’t afraid to play in split foyer basement without their parents!).
And another wonderful feature? You can’t beat the value for the dollars. Tremendous square footage, terrific yard, desirable updates. You’d be hard-pressed to find an equivalent property anywhere else in Fayette County with the accessibility to shopping, dining, downtown and UK. Come see why this is one of my favorite homes!
