As this landmark Castle undergoes its structural and aesthetic
renaissance, evidence of genuine attention to medieval detail
becomes apparent on a weekly basis. Current plans call for the
Interiorly, the heavy 12 foot wooden doors will open to reveal
a Great Hall with 30 foot ceilings, solid stone walls and elegant,
massive chandeliers. Behind will be a beautifully appointed reading
library and receiving area. Next to the library, an enormous dining
room which can seat 40+ guests in “medieval-like”
splendor. Adjacent to the dining room will be a sizeable and fully
equipped gourmet kitchen, a sun-lit breakfast room and both a
butler’s pantry and maid’s quarters, as well as an
Estate office. To the right of the Great Hall will be a barrel-vaulted
ballroom, replete with a gigantic wood burning fireplace, authentic-to-the-period
chandeliers, and mirrors which will reflect dancers and musicians.
The ballroom walls will feature hand-done wall artistry which
will depict scenes of the Central Kentucky countryside. To the
rear of the ballroom will be an elegant music room with both a
grand piano and a lyric harp, a game parlor designed with features
such as a giant plasma TV with satellite, a slate pool table,
card tables and luxury leather seating. Also on the first level,
an expansive artist’s studio bathed in northern exposure
At the rear of the Great Hall, a massive staircase will lead
to second floor guest suites, each featuring a sitting room with
panoramic windows, an oversized bathroom and a spacious bedroom
“fit for royalty”. Roof top level amenities include
a sundeck with shuffle board.
The four corners of the Castle walls are currently punctuated
with an authentic turret. Each contains a bedroom on the second
floor, perfect for a honeymoon or anniversary suite.
Castle owner Tom Post is a graduate of Lexington’s Lafayette
High School who subsequently received both his B.S. in Mathematics
and his law degree from the University of Kentucky. Twice each
year, Post will consider leasing out the entire facility, with
its spectacular views of the countryside and its proximity to
Keeneland Race Course, to discriminating individuals seeking unique
overnight accommodations. At other times during the year, the
Castle may be rented to guests wishing to enjoy sophisticated
lodging in a true medieval setting.
And, as the owner has steadfastly promised, the Castle will be
available for select meetings, parties, and weddings annually.
