Lexington Houses & Property

The Lexington cityscape is a fascinating and diverse one. It varies from the impressive Victorian architecture of the revived downtown heritage areas, to the ultra modern construction that has added to the skyline in recent years. Through sensitive developmental planning, urban spread has been kept to a minimum, in order to preserve the area's famous horse farms. Consequently, much of the Lexington's houses and properties are either distinctly downtown, or in the rural outskirts.

In recent years, the inventory of Lexington homes has expanded to include new construction properties, with the development of beautiful homes matching the gentle but steady growth of this small but vibrant city.  As new homes continue to enrich the landscape, the original look and feel of Lexington remains intact, with gorgeous displays of rustic and traditional architecture, classic comfort, and equestrian elegance all around. As a result, the current Lexington real estate market showcases a rich variety of stunning homes which radiate with the heritage of the city while adding a fresh edge to the market.

Although Lexington real estate is found in a small-city environment, the homes have all the character and space of countryside or suburban homes. Cottages, clapboard two-story traditionals, and the classic red brick homes of the eastern United States can all be found here. Beautiful townhomes and charming rowhomes are being added to the market, representing historic styles that are making a revival as ultra-stylish and convenient alternatives to single-family detached houses.

Other new residences include sleek, low-rise boutique condos, urban lofts and modern Craftsman homes with a rural flair. The original ranchers, split-level homes, and bungalows still retain their appeal. Many homes in Lexington enjoy plenty of space for expansive lush yards, opulent gardens, and wooded lots on leafy roads. Other homes are located on large acreages with sunlit meadows, picket fences, and amazing views.

Incredibly designed guest cottages, stone entry gates, and fountains add to the extravagance of these properties, many of which have rich and storied histories within the global equestrian community.

Some come with extra employee accommodation, mahogany-clad rooms, and home offices or studies. Estates feature incredible examples of European and classic American architectural styles. In Lexington's high-end market, you'll find gorgeous Federal-style manors, Greek Revival homes, English and French-inspired country estates, as well as sophisticated pastoral farmhouses.
