Welcome to Kew Park! Seated on approximately 989 acres of lush, gently rolling green pastures on the Western edge of the Great River Valley, Kew Park offers scenic views and ample tranquility. It’s allure lies in it’s serenity yet rich and vibrant history and agriculture.
The property features two historic houses among other structures. The main house, Kew Park House is believed to have been initially constructed during the 1700s. However, with the original structure having been destroyed by fire in 1831, Kew Park House was rebuilt in 1856. The House overlooks the Great River Valley as well as an extensive front lawn/ garden area.
The second house, referred to as The Cottage, was built during the 1600s by the Spanish as an outpost/ fort. Both houses feature cut-stone foundations and walls, reminiscent of the period in which they were constructed. The Cottage includes an outdoor swimming pool and tennis court along with a former pimento storage building that is converted into a guest cottage.
