Welcome to an extraordinary estate that is a true southern symbol of hospitality, history, and tradition! In 1833, John Gray, the founder of Elkton, Kentucky, built an inn to relay horses for his stage coach line. This inn went on to provide accommodations for some of the most famous historical figures in our nation. Records found that President Andrew Jackson, Jenny Lind, and Thomas Daly Rice, and outlaw Jesse James once stayed here. It is also believed that this home hosted escorts who lead The Cherokee Indians on the Trail of Tears. And now you have the opportunity to be part of the history of this home. If you love all things character and charm, you are sure to love this stately beauty! When you arrive, you will notice that this home stands with grandeur in the quiet but growing town of Guthrie, Kentucky. You are graced with a portico and 2 story fluted columns for the entrance of the home. As you move inside you will find 4 bedrooms and 3.5 baths that spans over 3, 400 sq ft. This home features the original hardwood floors, the original fireplaces and fireplace surrounds, exposed brick in different rooms, original trim work, and so many other details that adds so much character to the house. The kitchen and bathrooms have been updated, while keeping all of the character and charm in-tact. The spacious master bedroom and bathroom can be found on the main level of the home along with a formal dining room, family room, a beautiful kitchen with a bathroom and laundry room off to the side, and a welcoming foyer. On the second level of the home you can find 3 spacious bedrooms and 1 and a half bathrooms, one bathroom equipped with a clawfoot tub – so dreamy! You will also find the large loft area that would make a great game room, office space, or bonus room for extra guests. As you move outside, you will find an outdoor sitting area under the trees, a large deck and bar that’s waiting to be finished and enjoyed during those sweet southern summer months, an outdoor shed, covered pavilion, and a 2 car garage. There’s so much potential for the exterior of this home and it’s just waiting for someone to revitalize it. Don’t miss out on the opportunity to own this Kentucky Treasure!
