617 Portland Drive Lexington KY

The West Coast Seattle / Portland friendly feud has spilled into the streets of Lexington! This nice 50s classic does battle with its competition just down the road for neighborhood bragging right. Okay, that is cheesy. Ignore me, but don’t ignore this nice home. Very similar architecturally to many of the Lane Allen homes. Give it a look the next time you are in the area – much better looking than this drive-by pic!

Long on everyone’s midcentury radar, this Isenhour designed home on Breckenwood Drive is the closest thing Lexington has had to a midcentury modern flip during this economy. Many local architecture fans toured this home during both offerings in 2008 and 2009 to appreciate (and sometimes denigrate) the changes made. It is a beautiful home. The “twin” next door at 3220 Breckenwood is also worth a look and has already been featured on kymodern.
