Enjoy stunning views of the Missouri River and the valley beyond from this majestic hilltop home situated within walking distance to downtown Lexington.

Adorned by a stone wall, immense brick steps lead up to an elegant columned and inviting front porch. Stepping inside, onto a marble floor foyer, grace and beauty flood the senses. Extra wide doorways, soaring high ceilings and broad hallways show its unique openness and also fabulous views into the rich details of other rooms and the upstairs landing. Crown molding, elegant chandeliers, rich woodwork, beautiful wood framing around tall deep set windows, gorgeous fireplaces...so much more...so much beauty.

The large kitchen is a dream for the chef of the home and definitely a place for gatherings with the large wrap around island and the brick fireplace at the back wall that emanates warmth. Lots of beautiful cabinetry, granite countertops, large gas stove, ice maker, and all updated high-end appliances. An expansive family room has walls of windows that provides lots of light and spectacular views to the backyard oasis. Outside, the large brick extended patio area overlooks a huge fenced green space that backs to woods and the Missouri River beyond. Beautifully landscaped yard.
