Description

Located in the heartland of Kentucky, history effortlessly meets modern luxury in this historic home. Perched atop a hill overlooking Greensburg’s charming downtown district sits ”The Greensburg Academy” – it was one of the Commonwealth’s oldest private academies with roots dating back to 1794. The Academy’s most notable educator, William Mentor Graham taught onsite between 1818 to 1823 – Mentor Graham later gained notoriety as he is credited with formally educating Abraham Lincoln. Prior to its recent conversion into a spectacular private residence, the property was utilized as a bed and breakfast. Since 2005, the current owners have spared no expense as they have lovingly restored and updated the property, all while retaining its status and authenticity as a National Register of Historic Places site. Original limestone walls adorn the property’s boundaries, while a stately stone stairway greets owners and guests alike. The park-like driveway is lined with street lamps and showcases the 1.7 acres of lush gardens. Just over 3,300 square feet, the home features 5 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, a gourmet kitchen, an elegant dining room, a spacious outdoor cooking pavilion and a grand patio. Unmatched craftsmanship and historic preservation is displayed throughout.
