SVN Menish Auctions to Sell 137-Acre Kentucky Farm at Absolute Auction on June 11

Previous Owner Bequeathed Property to Nearby Lindsey Wilson College


Louisville, KY (May 18, 2016) — SVN Menish Auctions will conduct an absolute auction of a 137-acre farm with a large, well-maintained house and an incredible indoor swimming pool and spa. The auction is set for 10:30 a.m. Saturday, June 11.

SVN Menish Auctions and local advisors at SVN Ward Commercial are working in tandem on the auction, which will take place onsite at 2874 Greensburg Road in Columbia, Kentucky, about 100 miles south of Louisville.

The property was bequeathed by late owner Jim Blair to nearby Lindsey Wilson College.

“This is a tremendous buying opportunity,” said Bill Menish, CAI, AARE, BAS, managing director of SVN Menish Auctions in Louisville. “We anticipate a very lively auction as this is such a beautiful and well-kept property.”

The home features 4 bedrooms and 4½ baths under 4,752 square feet of living space and an attached 2,584-square-foot natatorium (indoor pool and spa). The pool is reminiscent of the one featured in the motion picture “Cocoon.”

The farm is situated among picturesque rolling hills with 25 acres of timber and two ponds. The property also has a generator that can provide back-up power to the entire home.

There will be two open houses: 2 to 4 p.m. Sunday, May 22, and noon to 2 p.m. Saturday, June 4.

Blair, who passed away in 2015 at age 87, was a former attorney and a frequent contributor to philanthropic causes in the Columbia area. Blair served on the board of directors for Lindsey Wilson College — a private four-year college affiliated with the United Methodist Church — from 1989 to 1992. In 2011, the local parks and recreation department dedicated the Jim Blair Community Recreation Center in his honor.
