Lexington Apartment Rental Photos and Description
2 bedroom, 1 bath apartment with next kitchen and beautiful garden
We bought this 1948 home in December 2013. We renovated the downstairs apartment and rented it right away. Then we decided to renovate and furnish the upstairs apartment for vacation travelers to Lexington. It is gorgeous and close to Lexington's growing downtown scene! In fact, it is only steps away from Jefferson Street, Lexington's newest entertainment district, with bars, a brewery, restaurants and an upscale wine bar.

About Teri Kelly
We bought this c. 1948 house in December 2013 and renovated it in the Spring of 2014. We've had such success sharing our own homes that we decided to list the upstairs apartment as a designated vacation rental. We completely renovated the kitchen and the bath while preserving all of the historic details. We used

Why Teri Kelly chose Lexington
The home is located in Lexington's second and largest neighborhood on beautiful 3rd Street. The neighborhood has undergone a transformation in recent years while maintaining it's historic charm. There are many restaurants, breweries, bars and shops opening throughout.
We have a heart for historic preservation (this is our ninth) in downtown Lexington. This is our first short-term rental. We are excited to meet the guests who visit our charming and comfy apartment and welcome them to our hometown.
What makes this apartment unique
The garden is incredible. Not being talented gardeners ourselves, we feel incredibly lucky that a landscape architect rented one of the apartments for several years before we bought the house in December, 2013. He spent several thousand hours and hundreds of dollars creating an English garden of winding paths and full, lush beds. It is peaceful and a piece of paradise right downtown. All we had to do was dig it since he had moved out and it was neglected for several years.
The furnishings have been culled from area estate sales over the past year. The resulting look is a contemporary renovation, with vintage furnishings.
Teri and her husband have spent a few nights there when their own home is rented, and have absolutely loved it. We are confident our guests will too!
Guestbook comments from the owner
Susan stayed in our vacation rental longer than anyone; five weeks. It was a real shot in the arm to my sister and I's decision to turn our renovated apartment over to vacation rentals instead of a year's lease.
When I went to get the apartment ready for the next rental I could not believe my eyes; it was SPOTLESS. One could not even tell that anyone had stayed there. It was beautiful throughout without even the smallest hint of any wear.
Susan was so respectful of my property, never asked for anything, and even got to know our downstairs tenant. I honestly don't see us ever having a better renter than Susan was and cannot thank her enough. She was absolutely a 10/10.
