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!

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.
