The Holiday Life is proud to present Lexington’s newest vacation rental experience…'The Garden Vault' at Old Hurst Place. This industrial loft-style space is complete with a high-end chef's kitchen, wine cooler/ bourbon bar and stylistic features to thrill the most cultured of guests! What is The Garden Vault? The building dates back to the 1920s and had many different lives, most notably as the business location for the Brinks Armored Car Company for 30 years. Upon purchasing the property in the 1970s, Brinks installed a 14’ by 14’ vault secured by a 12,000 lb. vault door which is still in place, as you can see in our photo slideshow. In 2009, Rett’s Landscaping bought the property. Rett’s findings on his travels abroad to Europe and Asia resulted in the antique art pieces that are now housed in the vault. The property’s name is a result of the building’s rich history as home to these two businesses. Additional unique features include sliding barn doors sourced from historic Lexington farms, reclaimed lighting from decommissioned German and British ships, a bathtub and kitchen sink converted from ancient stone feed troughs, and operational fountains throughout the living space. It has all the comforts of home including Pottery Barn bedding and linens, WiFi and a fully equipped kitchen with All Clad cookware. This space is perfect for any type of “event” given the wide indoor/outdoor space and the industrial/commercial appliances. There is place setting for 20 and enough square footage to comfortably host 75 people! There is parking for up to 4 cars on the property. Come experience this authentic bit of culture in one of the most charming cities in the American south, Lexington, KY!
