Legendary wagon maker John Stilfield built this historic downtown 1799 one-of-kind home shortly after his arrival to Lexington in 1796. Stilfield and his growing family were living here by 1805, when Upper Street first appeared in the Lexington proper directory. Stilfield's daughters and their families continued to live in the residence until 1914. This Bluegrass Trust home is one of only two pioneer log houses in downtown Lexington remaining on its original building location.
The interior of this home has been meticulously restored. Original log walls and charming hardwood floors throughout. Main floor kitchen, living room, dining area and bath featuring a step in bear claw shower tub and new Electrolux washer/dryer. Spacious upstairs bedroom includes a hand-made King Size Bed and a large sitting area. There is a top-of-the-line Tempur-Pedic American Leather Queen-sized bed option downstairs. In the tradition of the day, fireplaces grace both floors.
This property has on site parking able to accomodate two large vehicles (and a horse trailer!) and is conveniently located to all downtown attractions including Rupp Arena--(just a two-tenths of a mile walk) and fine dining on restaurant row. This one-of-a-kind home backs up to Macks Alley--making the private parking simple and convenient. ADT secured 24/7
