Pettit Place - Southern Contemporary Home in Downtown's Best Location

Lexington holiday home in Downtown Lexington, walk to Rupp Arena
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!

Bedroom Layout:
There is 1 master bedroom on the ground floor with a King size bed and en suite bathroom that has a soaking tub/shower combination. This bedroom has a TV and views out to the courtyard.
The second floor has an additional master bedroom with a King size bed, 2 en suite baths (one with a tub and one with a shower) and picture windows along the front of the house with a door to access the front porch/balcony. There is a study located outside this bedroom and another door for accessing the porch. There is a guest bedroom with a queen size bed on the second floor as well as the "loft" bedroom, which has 2 sets of twin over full bunk beds and a sleeper sofa (it is a huge room!). These two guest rooms share a bathroom with shower/tub combination that has jack and jill doors offering an en suite experience to the queen bedroom and hallway access for those staying in the loft bedroom. The queen bedroom has a private porch overlooking the courtyard. The loft bedroom has a TV.

Lexington Junior League
Lexington Junior League My husband and I were traveling with our four dogs for the Lexington Junior League car show. This house was the perfect homebase, and we thoroughly enjoyed the gourmet kitchen. The gorgeous outdoor courtyard is the perfect setting for an afternoon glass of rosé.
