Live like a legend
When you first walk upon the Swigert House, which is listed on the National Register of Historical Places, your eyes naturally land on a three-story round tower that even Rapunzel wouldn’t want to leave. Inch closer, and you’ll notice the sun hitting the glass-stained windows, bleeding beautiful hues of blue into the home.
Upon entry, you’ll be floored by the preserved hardwood floors, Irish bog oak trimmings, and the intricate carved staircase.
Other notable features:
- A large dining room
- Arch-shaped, floor-to-ceiling windows
- Remodeled bathrooms
- Unique crown molding
Downtown living without the hassle
Perhaps one of the most desirable traits? Having a spacious, fully-fenced in backyard, all within walking distance to downtown Lexington. Take a quick seven-minute walk to West Sixth Brewing + Smithtown Seafood or kick back in your screened-in porch, and listen to the hum of the city in your own little slice of historical paradise.
