If you happen to have some extra cash lying around, and you’re looking for a heavenly slice of country living, you may want to consider putting a bid on Johnny Depp’s eye-popping horse farm located near Lexington, Kentucky.
The stunning property is scheduled to hit the public auction block on September 15, after its price listing on the market dropped from $3.4 million to $2.9 million, as reported by the Lexington Herald Leader.
Highlights on the majestic, 41-acre equestrian spread include a nearly 6,000-square-foot brick house, which boasts six bedrooms, and seven bathrooms. A small horse operation with three barns is home to many currently unoccupied horse stalls. A one-bedroom guest cottage, an in-ground swimming pool and a four-car garage are also featured on the plot of land.
The “Pirates of the Caribbean” actor has a unique history with the Kentucky farm, because he sold it once before. In 1995, he scooped up the property for $950,000. He then sold it for $1 million in 2001, before re-purchasing it through a trust in 2005 for $2 million.
Jim Halfhill of the Halfhill Auction Group, who will be conducting the auction, has not yet revealed the reserve price (the bottom price the seller will accept) for auction day to interested buyers.
However, county officials have assessed the property at a fair cash value of $2.3 million.
So, would you be interested in buying this prized piece of farmland?
