Driving Directions

Famed artist Hermann Dudley Murphy modeled this 1915 Villa after a mansion he and his wife loved on their honeymoon in Florence, Italy. Sited on a truly exceptional lot with dramatic seasonal views, the landscape was designed by Frederick Law Olmsted, Jr. The home is located on Follen Hill’s Mount Independence, one of the highest points in Lexington. Extensive electrical, heating, cooling and window updates provide a foundation to create your own grand and private estate property. The former 35 x 24-foot artist’s studio with soaring ceilings is now an indoor swimming pool retreat and lounging area. This room overlooks The Great Lawn and steps leading to the foundation stones of a historic observation tower. French doors connect the interior to the extensive grounds. With over 7000 sf of Craftsman-influenced living area that includes stenciled cypress paneling, six bedrooms, seven baths and seven fireplaces, this is a rare opportunity to write your own chapter in this storied history.
