A ‘Classically Elegant’ Project


In the past three decades, Padgett Construction’s custom homes have been featured in many different local and national publications. It’s interesting to take a look back at some of our favorite projects over the years and see how their exterior and interior features evolved into the beautiful homes they are today.

In the following TOPS in Lex piece titled “Classic Elegance With Comfort and Charm,” Elizabeth Adams explores a beautiful 7,100 square foot Padgett home on the outskirts of Lexington.

“With an inviting openness that is felt throughout, this home exudes originality with its fresh color schemes, functional beauty and classic interior elements that are true to the homeowners’ tastes,” Adams writes.

The piece has photos of various areas of the exterior and interior of this home, including one of our favorite features, the wine cellar:

“The wine cellar walls are covered in custom wood shelving filled with vintage and antique wines,” Adams writes. “This is as beautiful as it is functional and can hold up to 1,400 bottles of wine and champagne. A grand iron chandelier illuminates an often utilized tasting table.”

Horse Country Dream Home


One of our most memorable projects over the years is this stunning French country-style home in the heart of horse country. This home, which won an award for the New Builder’s House of the Year, was featured in an article on the design website Frontgate.com.

“An allèe of leaf-filled trees shades the drive over gently rolling landscape. Fenced pasture filled with clover and several happily-fed thoroughbreds outline the lay of the land. A turreted and chimney-dotted roofline looms over the horizon, followed by a sprawling French-styled chateau that if you didn’t blink twice, would be the icing on the cake after a transatlantic voyage,” the article begins.

This project took a year of planning, and more than a year and a half  to complete construction, but it was worth it. Located on 16 acres of pristine farmland near the Kentucky Horse Park, it has many intricate features, including a curving staircase in the turret, arched doorways, cedar ceiling beams and custom, hand laid brick floors in the kitchen.

Padgett was pleased to help the Weiss family’s dream home become a reality. Read more about this project on Frontgate.com.
