ASHLAND PARK RESIDENCE
Sitting directly across from and on axis with Ashland, the Henry Clay Estate, this project is a complete renovation of and addition to a 1928 Historic Dutch Colonial Residence. Built as a Lexington Herald “Model Home” by Frankel & Curtis Architects, this house has many noted features. The side walls of the house are solid, two story Kentucky river limestone that act in juxtaposition to the clapboard siding of the other elements of the house. The addition is in contrast to the swooping roof lines of the house in its rectilinear form. Large volumes of glazing arranged in a symmetrical fashion set up views from the large open living room to the yard and are flanked on a central fireplace volume.
