Looking for a home in Kentucky?

Here are some lovely sprintime photos
from Twigmore Farm in North Middletown, KY.
My friends Pam and Keith Foster have
created quite a sanctuary from this 200-year-old
limestone house and the grounds surrounding it.
The 3,700 square foot house truly is a postcard come to life.
Thanks to Pam's decorating, the interior is just as impressive.
The stonework on the exterior was done by Kentucky's
tenth governor, Thomas Metcalfe.
The color of the front door reminds me
of Miles Redd's infamous entry.
This 250-acre daydream could be yours as Pam and Keith
are selling Twigmore. Unbelievable as that seems, they
are moving on to new and exciting projects including
another property here in Kentucky.
As you tour the farm, moments like this can be discovered
all around you. The details can be breathtaking.
The landscaping resembles the English countryside.
Picture-perfect vignettes have been created
wherever you look.
Keith, a golf architect, has also created a 9-hole course
on the property. The Morris Course was built "old-school-style"
in the field and is played with 19th century clubs and gutty balls.
Nearby, sheep graze in a field.
All these amazing photos were taken by Pam.
Here, a couple of her buddies cuddle and nap.
