JUSTICE REAL ESTATE is honored and privileged to offer this historic and fertile farm situated on the banks of the Elkhorn Creek and just outside historic Midway, Kentucky. Consisting of 683.775 acres, the Parrish-Rouse Farm is currently owned by the Isaac P. Rouse heirs and is being offered for sale by them.
Ike Parrish, grandfather of Ike Rouse, acquired this farm in several parcels: The Leavy/Fleming Farm, Buck Place Farm, McCabe Farm, and the Worthington Farm. The South Elkhorn Creek swings north, then west, in a wide bend that some call “Sheepshead Bend” and encloses these hundreds of acres of prime, fertile farm land. This included the pioneer farm holdings of Leonard Fleming, Capt. Samuel Leavy, Col. John Buck, and the James Martin tract (L.P. Cable Farm).
Currently a cattle and hay farm (except roughly 40 acres of soybeans will be planted this year), this handsome farm offers a rare opportunity to acquire a large parcel of fertile land with almost three miles of Elkhorn Creek frontage. Parrish-Rouse offers an unparalleled blank canvas that would develop into one of the most beautiful horse farm in Central Kentucky—and that’s a huge statement. The east side of the farm adjoins the rear of Midway Station, a retail and industrial complex, which affords the new owner an investment (exit) strategy for the future.
Parrish-Rouse Farm has two entrances—both leading to modest employee-style houses. This well-maintained farm boasts seven tobacco barns with 64 bents, four bay equipment shed, two level shop/tool building, two wells, a spring, and city water.
