A rare opportunity to own an amazing home overlooking historic Gratz Park. Mount Hope was built in 1819 for General John M. McCalla. McCalla & his wife had to move to Washington D.C. so they sold their house to Benjamin Gratz in 1824 whose family resided there for 160 yrs. The house is a 2 story brick, federal style townhouse. The Gratz family occupied this house until 1984 before the current owners bought it & renovated. Lexington's Gratz Park is so named due to this house being situated on the corner of Mill & New Streets, a corner boundary of the park created in 1876 and located between the beautiful, historic homes of N Mill, Transylvania & the Carnegie Center. The grounds are perfectly landscaped w/great views from covered porch & original Carriage House (3 car garage w/2 BR's & a bath). The lower level has a kitchen & LR. The National Register of Historic Places list the house as having great architectural & historical significance. The 3rd level could be a home office or a den.
