Welcome to 149 Swigert Ave Lexington KY 40504, a slice of paradise in the heart of Bluegrass horse country. Being offered for 1st time in 39 yrs, this 1925 home holds great memories. You'll be thinking about this one daily because it's unique. Maybe it's because you can sit on front porch & see horses or it's the 2-acre lot being a rarity & or maybe it's the horse history vibes. 100 years ago,1922 KY Derby winner Morvich came back to this area after racing & Elizabeth Daingerfield, owner of the old Haylands Farm (right on this street), oversaw Man O' War's breeding career in the 1920s. Per the NY Times, Man O' War returned to Haylands briefly before going to Faraway. This home is highlighted by large rooms including living room opening to dining, eat-in kitchen, family room & full bath on 1st. 3 bedrooms & walk-in attic storage upstairs. Standout architectural details: 10 ft ceilings on 1st floor, pocket doors, tall baseboards, original hardwoods & brick sidewalk. Incredible location off Paris Pike, 1 min. to Lex.
