About this property
2308 N Middletown Road in beautiful Bourbon county, Xalapa Farm is one of the most stunning and beautiful Estates in Kentucky. Over 1,025 acres, built in the early 20th Century as entrepreneur Edward F. Simms’ vision to create a self-sufficient farm, with abundant water sources, building materials and rich soil. The property was purchased from the founding family by the current owners in 2007, who began restoring the property to it’s original glory. Exceptional improvements include the historic brick and stone main residence, “Buckner House”, along with an expansive five-bedroom log residence, stone Gardener’s House, modern office, tennis court, swimming pool, extensive gardens designed by famed landscape architect Jens Jensen. The property has been used for decades as a top-quality equine facility, including broodmare barns, yearling barns, a historic stone training barn with adjacent one mile training track…and much more! Featured in the movie Seabiscuit. The entire property has been carefully renovated, is in pristine condition, and is ready to continue as a place of pride for its next fortunate owner.
