Xalapa is one of the most stunning and beautiful Estates in Kentucky. With over 1,025 acres, built in the early 20th Century with entrepreneur Edward F. Sims' vision to create a self-sufficient estate, with abundant water sources, building materials and rich soil. The property was purchased from the founding family by the current owners in 2007, who began restoring the property to it's original glory. Exceptional improvements include the historic brick and stone main residence, Buckner House, along with an expansive five-bedroom log residence, stone Gardener's House, modern office, tennis court, swimming pool, extensive gardens designed by famed landscape architect Jens Jensen.
