Praise

“Kentucky may be renowned for its thundering Derby horse race and powerful mint juleps, but the state’s architectural legacy and pastoral heritage rarely get their due on the national stage. Kentucky: Historic Houses and Horse Farms of Bluegrass Country is a highly personal collection of what Estersohn calls ‘wonderful secret places, some meticulous and others rough around the edges.’ With verdant countryside as a frequent backdrop, 18 compelling properties take a bow, from racing doyenne Marylou Whitney’s homey Maple Hill mansion to Lexington’s hauntingly empty Pope Villa, an 1811 masterpiece by U.S. Capitol architect Benjamin Latrobe that is so off the radar ‘people a block away don’t even know it exists.'” —Architectural Digest
