Walnut Springs Farm was purchased in 1929 by the heir to the Singer Sewing Machine fortune as a Thoroughbred breeding farm, and is now available again. The 6 bedroom house is updated yet retains its character, with stone and brick fireplaces throughout its sprawling, light-filled expanse. There is a large salt-water pool and well-appointed pool house, a gas fire-pit, and an outdoor kitchen on a bluestone patio. Situated on nearly 269 acres (with 256 acres adjoining available to purchase), seven barns contain 66 stalls, with not just a manager’s house, but two additional employee houses. This beautiful estate is perfect for breeding and training, and is in close proximity to multiple competition venues, including Split Rock and the Kentucky Horse Park (both within 15 minutes of the farm). Always dreamed of a rolling estate on Kentucky bluegrass? Here’s your chance!
In 1929, Robert Sterling Clark, of Clark Thread and Singer Sewing Machine millions, decided he wanted a thoroughbred breeding establishment in the horse capital of the world. He wanted the land to be rolling enough to exercise a young thoroughbred’s muscles and a plentiful supply of bone-building calcium from the limestone underlying the soil – but not too far from the soil. After a careful survey of available farms, he purchased Walnut Springs Farm. Now this farm, with its pure natural beauty, rich soils, and profusion of mature trees is available again.
The centerpiece of Walnut Springs is its stone-wall-enclosed 11,000+ square foot, six-bedroom, seven-and-a-half bath main residence. Featuring stone walls, bluestone patios, outdoor kitchen, gas fire pit, salt-water pool, and lovely pool house.
Horse improvements include 66 stalls in seven barns, miles of plank fencing, and paved roads. Additional improvements include a manager’s house plus two employee houses, a large shop/storage building, and five-bay open equipment shed.
