Det skal I lave

This will be a guided tour of our 15,000 sq. ft. mansion. This home has an extensive history for our local area. The home is a 1910 Sears and Roebuck kit home purchased by Mr. and Mrs. Long in 1977. Mr. Long was a demolition contractor who salvaged architectural pieces incorporating them into the expansion of the house. The unique and well thought out customization in this home makes it a show piece. Some of the most showcased features in the home are the stained glass sliding windows, Italian Carrara Marble Floors and partial walls, the spiral staircase and the solid mahogany two front doors that were made for the white house. Stand in amazement under the 6 ft. tall chandelier that hung in Hugh Hefner's original playboy mansion.
This experience would be a guided tour which will provide guests with a history lesson, architectural amazement that can bring people together who have an appreciation for history, art and design.

Longview Estate is a proud sponsor of the Garrard County Arts...a percentage of our tour proceeds will benefit their endeavors.

Hugh and I purchased this incredible home in 2017. We own a restoration company, Jacobs Ladder Inc, and have completed the restoration on our home to date. We have spent countless hours researching the history of this home to provide an accurate account as to the many architectural elements in the home. We are passionate about keeping the original homeowners legacy alive by continuing their vision of Longview Estate.

Wow - what an amazing home. Amy gave us a very personal tour of her home and it’s history. Her thoughtful conversations about the previous owners, and how they have impacted her plans for her part of the home’s legacy was mesmerizing. I loved the chandeliers, curtains, secret rooms, and all the stories that went with them. Thank you for making us feel so comfortable, and letting us see and hear about your restoration journey.

I have driven past Longview hundreds of times while visiting my family in Lancaster, KY. and I was always curious about the house. Then a transformation began and it really peaked my interest! It was an interesting tour. You can see all the love and hard work Amy and her husband have put into this house. It is beautiful inside. The history of the home is interesting too!

This tour was wonderful. It felt like you were visiting a close friend. Amy was very knowledgeable and down to earth. Definitely a high point to our Lexington trip.
