One of the most frequented and historical landmark in Lexington, Kentucky, the Kentucky Castle which is located on the Versailles Road has now been turned into a luxury hotel by an ex-Miami lawyer, Tom Post. The Kentucky Castle is now serving both the guests and the owner pretty well, with its service and with its revenues, especially after the reduced prices of the hotel rooms which are now between $375 and $600 a night, down from $1,000 a night.
Mr. Post had been working as a lawyer in Miami, Florida, specializing in property tax law, these taxes are one of the most prominent source of income for the state of Florida. Then in the year 2000, Post got his first glimpse of the Kentucky Castle during a state bar association meeting. After intense research and with the help of a private investigator, Mr. Post finally located the owners of the castle and bought the property for $1.8 million in the year 2003. The castle was under construction since the year 1969, under the supervision of its previous owner, the now deceased Rex Martin Sr. and since his demise, the castle remained unfinished for the last 30 years.
The enormous Kentucky Castle sports 50 rooms including a library, sitting room, game room and a dining room for 40 guests. As far as the outdoors are concerned, the castle boasts of 20-by-50 foot pool, tennis courts, formal garden and a large Chinese dragon fountain spouting water.
