While the Beatles invaded America, on the local front 1964 witnessed Dick Isenhour shift his attention to the western edges of the 40503 zip code. Don’t let that horrible segue prevent you from taking in this outstanding Roxburg Drive home — one of three of his designs built in the Stonewall Subdivision. Stylistically, this home is very similar to 341 Jesselin (built in the same year). This one is not to be missed and well worth the drive through suburban ranch-land to view in person.

This Isenhour home is strikingly different than his other designs on Jesselin and Blueberry, but once the time frame is established it makes total sense. A late addition to one of our favorite Lexington streets, this Jesselin home reflects the architectural changes that Isenhour had already successfully employed on Lakeside Drive and Bridgeport Drive. The flat roof, low slung profile still maintains his trademark stonework.

Apologies for the poor photography, but this home deserves to be seen in person anyway. The Glendover neighborhood is a great place to spend an hour walking or biking and viewing some extraordinary homes.
