The most talked about home for sale in Lexington! Rumors run ramped that Toby McGuire & Ashley Judd lived here!

Greetings from here in beautiful Lexington, Kentucky. Today is a crisp 48 degrees. The sun is out and all the snow and ice are melted. It appears that spring is on its way. And it couldn’t come soon enough as Kentucky suffered its largest natural disaster with the ice storm just less than 2 weeks ago. During the ice storm I posted a blog on the Top 5 most talked about homes for sale in the Lexington, Kentucky area. I thought it would be a fun feature blog and something of interest to keep us entertained and well distracted as to what was happening weather wise outside. As we were stuck in our homes and cabin fever started to set in, I came up with the Top 5 list of the most talked about homes for sale in Lexington, KY. Last week, my blog showcased the 4 other contenders. But today, I am bringing you THE ULTIMATE most talked about home for sale in Lexington, KY. So get settled in your chair and read on my friends!

1. Paris Pike - Black Diamond Farm - $14,000,000
This is the most talked about home on the Lexington Kentucky real estate market!! And it has been the topic of discussion since it was constructed back in 1988. Who owns this place? It seems everyone wants to know and very few actually know. Over the years, I’ve heard all kinds of rumors. One rumor centered on Kentucky native Ashley Judd and her famous race car husband, who supposedly bought the home. When Hollywood came knocking and the movie Seabiscuit was filmed here in Lexington a few years back, rumors ran ramped that Hollywood mega star Toby McGuire bought the home. Unfortunately for you celebrity watchers, neither of those two bought this Lexington KY home for sale. But hey, it is for sale now….so there still is a chance!

The owner of the home is pretty low key for the most part, but when it comes to creating a true Bluegrass palace, they are not low key at all. This Federal style home is the most luxurious estate around. Boasting over 17,000 square feet and 63 acres, you are welcomed by a gourmet kitchen, elevator, pub, wine cellar, office wing and a library. Wait, there is more - an indoor pool, a 13,000 square foot pool house, a 4-car garage with two apartments, tennis courts, 20 stall barn, many ponds and waterfalls complete with the most luscious landscaping. The list goes on and on…and I really mean that. Just glancing at pictures of this home makes you want to see more, lots more. This home also has the ultimate Lexington location. Located on historic Paris Pike, the most expensive stretch of highway in the state, Black Diamond Farm is nestled in the heart of Kentucky Horse Farm country. The neighbors include: Gainsway Farm, Walmac, Elmendorf and Spendthrift. Location, location, location! This Lexington KY real estate dream home has everything for living a life of glitz and glamour. Folks, go buy a lottery ticket….this home is a must have! Listing Office: Justice Real Estate
