Another Kentucky gem named for a famous French city (but pronounced differently), Versailles even has it’s own castle (seriously, there’s a castle). Unlike the other Versailles, though, Kentucky’s Versailles is steeped in a rich equine and agribusiness tradition that makes the city unique. At the heart of horse country, Versailles is home to some of the most famous horse farms in the Bluegrass, many of them hosting Kentucky Derby winners. Versailles is also home to the Woodford Reserve bourbon distillery and local wineries Equus Run and Wildside Winery. During the summer and fall, residents frequent local markets, orchards and festivals for seasonal bounties and fun. On top of all this, Versailles real estate features unparalleled beauty and boasts a wealth of historic southern homes.
Located between Lexington and Frankfort is Woodford County, which is thoroughbred country. Versailles is one of Kentucky’s oldest towns and is the county seat of Woodford County. It was named by one of the town’s founders, General Marquise Calmes after the city of Versailles, France. Nestled within the beautiful rolling hills of Central Kentucky, Versailles real estate features unparalleled beauty not seen in many parts of the world.
