Overview of The Martin House
Our spacious 2 story brick vacation rental home is centrally located in Lexington's Historic South Hill district, and is the perfect spot for Bluegrass area visitors. This unique home, built in 1908, is registered with the Bluegrass Trust for Historic Preservation, and is an intriguing combination of private retreat and downtown convenience. The completely fenced in back courtyard provides an inviting, peaceful venue for relaxing, but one has only to walk out the front door to discover all that downtown Lexington has to offer. This charming home has lots of character with 10 foot ceilings, hardwood floors and six uniquely tiled fireplace mantles throughout as well as a 1st floor screened in porch and a second floor open air porch overlooking the backyard courtyard and downtown Lexington. Other special features are a cozy seating area in the open, airy kitchen, and a coffee/tea station in the reading area located upstairs. A wonderful get away for old home lovers!
