Within the confines of Jefferson County, this 47 acre thoroughbred farm is just 20 miles from Churchill Downs, 15 miles from Trackside Training Center, 34 miles from High Pointe Training Center in L'Esprit, 18 miles from Louisville International Airport, 19 miles from the University of Louisville and 22 miles from the heart of downtown Louisville. Overlooking pastures, woodland and streams is this 1920 sq. ft. home with a two-car attached garage, surrounded by a circular driveway. This lovely 3 bedroom, 2 bath home has a large 400 sq. ft. office adjacent to the 600 sq. ft. patio surrounded by a rock wall. It is a great place for entertaining and taking in the beauty of your back yard rolling acreage.And if the existing home does not suit your needs, there are potential sites with views for building the ultimate home of your dreams, without the worry of encroaching urbanization ruining your view of pastoral countryside. There is one small pond that retains water year-round. In the springtime, the noise from the emerging frogs is delightful. One of three intermittent streams that meander north to south across the entire property was dammed up years ago. The dam provides a level road from the center of the farm to a multiple acre pasture to the east. A big rain fills the basin to the north of the dam with over an acre of water, but after a few days the basin eventually empties. At one time the basin held water as evidenced by the system of pipes and connected to a large concrete trough below the dam. A fishing enthusiast could renovate the pond bottom and stock for year-round fishing. Walk the surrounding trail to experience the beauty of this magical property. The southern boundary encompasses 1,100 ft. of a spectacular section of Broad Run Creek with multiple water tables and nearby 20 ft. cascading waterfall. You'll hear the soothing roar of the creek as its waters pass on their way to nearby Broad Run Park and onward to Floyds Fork. Broad Run Park is less than a mile away. The property is bordered on the north by Broad Run Vineyard, which cannot be developed for 90 more years of its 100-year conservancy. The southern boundary takes in Broad Run Creek to the opposite bank. The creek is recessed below land level and does not overflow its banks even after torrential downpours. To the south of the creek is a tree-covered hill that rises steeply 150-200 feet, making it impossible to build on. There is no road frontage and no danger of horses reaching the street. A quarter mile gravel road runs from the paved drive of the farm, between these properties and the vineyard to Broad Run Rd. The gravel road is deeded to the farm, and neighboring properties are granted an easement. To the east is an 81-acre farm. Standing in the middle of the farm at night you cannot see a light, yet you are physically only 3 miles from Bardstown Road. The farm is an equestrian paradise, currently home to River Run Farm, where horses can roam 23 acres of rolling pastureland subdivided by miles of electric polytape for ease of rotational grazing. The 10-stall, 80 X 40 ft., barn has new siding, doors and roof. The barn houses a 200 sq. ft. tack room which could be converted into two additional stalls. Two sliding doors matching the others in the barn are stored in the hayloft for future expansion. The hayloft stores up to 1000 bales of hay. Two 3 X 8 ft. skylights provide abundant illumination for the entire barn.
