Welcome to Pettit Place, a southern contemporary custom home set right in the best area of downtown Lexington between Main Street and Gratz Park. Built in 2005, Pettit Place is is a 2-story, one of a kind home spanning nearly 4,500 square feet with an elegant downtown vibe that still exudes classic Lexingtonian style. Beautiful natural light accents the open floor plan that offers space for a large group to spread out and stay comfortably. The home has 10-20 ft ceilings throughout, 3 private porches, an outdoor water feature in the private courtyard, sky line views of downtown to the back and views of the historic Hunt-Morgan house and gardens out the front picture windows! It can sleep up to 12 and has an elevator for accessing the second floor. A private garage and secured outdoor driveway (enclosed inside electric gates) offer parking for 2 cars. The property was home to a former mayor of Lexington and was designed by his son, Van Meter Pettit. The Pettit family recently decided to open it to guests to share a bit of authentic Lexington with visitors to the city!
