Constructed ca. 1878 by the prominent Lexington banker & hemp dealer Avery S. Winston, 255 North Broadway is a fine example of Italianate architecture. Believed to have been designed by the noted Cincinnatus Shyrock, the home contained some of the finest ceiling plaster-work & architectural details of the era. Sometime in the early 20th century, the home was converted into apartments. Over the past few years, however, the current owner has painstakingly restored & updated the magnificent structure, which would again make for a lovely single-family residence. The home is currently divided into three apartments (with a combined 4BR, 3.5BA), a full, concrete-floored basement and a spectacular third-floor attic, which could be finished. A large Ginkgo tree anchors the backyard, along with a brick carriage house which has been converted into a 2BR/2BA guest home. Truly, 255 N. Broadway has all of the makings of a wonderful Downtown estate. Call for a private showing; 48-hour notice, please.
