Ellerslie at Delong is a residential community located on Richmond Road in Lexington Kentucky. We are right on the edge of horse country about five miles southeast of downtown Lexington and the University of Kentucky. Our neighborhood currently consists of about 200 homeowners in a mix of single-family homes and townhomes. Several homes are currently under construction and many new sites are available.
Our neighborhood has a real Kentucky horse farm feel enhanced by an impressive stone entrance and traditional horse farm style fencing. Our neighborhood comprises about 300 acres with a pond and over 70 acres of dedicated green-space. Just inside the entrance is a roundabout circling a beautiful fountain. Convenient shopping includes Hamburg Pavilion and Richmond Road shops and restaurants. Recreation nearby includes Jacobson Park, Lakeside Golf Course and Lake Ellerslie, a private fishing lake. Saint Joseph East Hospital is five minutes away.
Development of Ellerslie at Delong began about twelve years ago, but the land traces back to one of Lexington's most prominent early residents, Levi Todd, grandfather of Mary Todd Lincoln. After settling in Kentucky, Levi Todd named his home "Ellerslie" after his native home in Scotland. Today, Ellerslie is one of the finest neighborhoods in Lexington.
