525 Dover Rd Lexington KY

This 50s era home on Dover Road offers up some classic mid-century modern features and a whole host of questions. One can’t help but wonder about the front facade. Was there ever a front door? Is that wood original? What does that fireplace look like? We have no answers. This house could be a real beauty with some minor changes to the exterior, but it provides welcome relief from the numerous bland ranches in the neighborhood.

If the house on Strathmore were bisected by a glass 3 story A-frame, then the offspring would closely resemble this mid century classic on Lindenwood. Best seen from the back during the summer months (as seen above), the fall and winter months expose the glass facade facing Eastin Rd. The interior (as of its last sale) still possessed mostly all original fixtures and it is a great structure and one of Lexington’s most unique homes.
