The Speed Family’s Historic Cold Spring Estate Is For Sale In The Highlands


This property is a journey. The Cold Spring Estate, built by the Speed family in 1867 with a carriage house added in 1911, is for sale. The homes (the main house and a carriage house) sit on almost seven acres of beautiful parkland near Cherokee Park. It is both a time capsule with Art Nouveau accents and an opportunity to turn history into modern magnificence. If you’re a fan of shows like “Fixer Upper,” or “House Hunters” and you make millions of dollars wrangling gerbils or training Ewoks, this home is worth the challenge to finish. 

The major parts of the renovation are complete, what is left for the new owner is choosing the finishes and enjoying this space. Architectural drawings, blueprints, etc. are available with the home. In addition to this 13,273 sq. ft. property, the main home has 4 bedrooms and 7 bathrooms. The grounds near the home are primed for a beautiful French-style garden. 

It’s got a price tag of $4,995,000 and is listed by: Jon Mand (502-899-2129) and Claire Alagia (502-592-3459) of Lenihan Sotheby's International Realty.
