Welcome to a unique downtown Lexington rental Garden Vault' at Olde Hurst Place. This formerly industrial space is complete with a high-end chef's kitchen, wine cooler, bourbon bar and stylistic features to thrill the most cultured of guests!
What is The Garden Vault? The building dates back to the 1920s and had many different lives, most notably as the business location for the Brinks Armored Car Company for 30 years. Upon purchasing the property in the 1970s, Brinks installed a 14’ by 14’ vault secured by a 12,000 lb. vault door which is still in place, as you can see in our photo slideshow. In 2009, Rett’s Landscaping bought the property. Rett’s findings on his travels abroad to Europe and Asia resulted in the antique art pieces that are now housed in the vault. The property’s name is a result of the building’s rich history as home to these two businesses. Additional unique features include sliding barn doors sourced from historic Lexington farms, reclaimed lighting from decommissioned German and British ships, a bathtub and kitchen sink converted from ancient stone feed troughs, and operational fountains throughout the living space. It has all the comforts of home including Pottery Barn bedding and linens, WiFi and a fully equipped kitchen with All Clad cookware. This space is perfect for any type of “event” given the wide indoor/outdoor space and the industrial/commercial appliances. There are place settings for 20 people and parking for up to 4 cars -2 in the front open area of the building and 2 more inside the gated gravel area.
Come experience this authentic bit of culture in one of the most charming cities in the American south, Lexington, KY!
*Small dogs are permitted with approval. $100 pet cleaning fee will apply plus $15 per day.
Things to Note:
-The office for Rett's Landscaping still occupies the front of the building. The middle section is a garage/storage area and the vault apartment is located at the back of the building. The door to get in is located behind the gates that enclose the gravel parking area.
-The parking area and path to the door is gravel, which makes it a little difficult for rolling luggage and can be tough on footwear!
-For guests who are noise sensitive, it is worth noting this is a downtown location located right off main street so there is some "city noise".
-The bedrooms are side by side and enclosed only by unusual doors (as shown in photos) - one has two barn doors that close together and the other is enclosed by a fogged glass garage style roll down door. Only one of the bedrooms has a closet - the other has a dresser with drawers.
