First time on the real estate market since 1877! Yes, you read that right! 1877. That was the First line in my marketing of a recent listing I sold at 151 Duncan Ave. Paris, KY. During June/July 2019, had the honor of representing the seller of 151 Duncan Ave. in Paris and it was an experience I will never forget. I had phone calls and showing requests from individuals from all over the country. We had buyers come in from Wisconsin and Virginia and the day before we sold to the new buyer, we had a couple planning to fly in from Los Angeles, California to tour this special home. It was wonderful to watch this neat Kentucky home glow with such great national marketing exposure and really captivate old house lovers across the country. I sold 151 Duncan Ave. within 10 days of hitting the Paris, KY Real Estate market. Commonly known as the Danforth home in Paris, this home had been in the same family since 1877 and was also home to United States Senator Virgil Chapman. The family was so kind and sweet! It was an honor to work with them and help them throughout the selling process.

Here were the marketing remarks on this special home:

1877 was the last time this home was offered on the market & now is your chance to be a part of the next chapter. This beautiful Italianate home w/ Gothic Revival characteristics was built prior to 1870. This home belonged to U.S. Senator Virgil Chapman & visitors to this home include U.S. President Lyndon B. Johnson while a Senator & Vice President Alben Barkley. Upon entry, you are welcomed by a 29 ft. entry hall allowing great flow. Tall ceilings & hardwood flooring throughout. Main level boast living room, master suite, formal dining & kitchen w/ separate utility/mud room. 2nd level features 4 large bedrooms & study w/ built ins. Extensive trim, hand carved moldings & arched entry ways. The grounds are equally impressive w/ mature trees & room to entertain or soak up the shade. Garden Club of KY is short walk/bike/car ride one street over, and home is located 2 blocks from downtown shops/restaurants. Duncan Ave. is on the National Historic Register.
