Midwest Mansions: Dudley Mansion, Lexington KY

Built in 1879 by Marie Hunt Dudley, granddaughter of John Wesley Hunt, this classic Italianate/Victorian era home, designed by architects A.J. Davis and Cincinnatus Shyrock has been beautifully restored and all the modern conveniences added.

Grand staircase; note the civil war era square grand under the stairs
Castle worthy interior
The main parlor features exquisite pier mirrors and museum quality fixtures. The Kitchen features high end cabinetry, granite countertops, fireplace, and an amazing pressed copper ceiling. The construction and craftsmanship are of the highest quality. The large Master Suite has a lovely tiled Bathroom with tiled shower and huge walk-in closet.

Imagine the dinner conversations held here
The grounds are perfectly landscaped with gracious newer covered porches, a pond, waterfall and the original Carriage House (2 car garage with half bath) and the upper level is ready to finish into a huge office or studio.

The study has a more relaxed feel
The National Register of Historic Places list the house as having great architectural and historical significance.
Luxury everywhere
I particularly love the formal rooms of this home and especially the formal dining with its wall treatment.  Mansions like this are rare indeed, at lightly under 2 million its priced at less than small New York loft.
