About Joyce Green

Growing up in Illinois, My husband and I reunited after 30 years and decided to make a fresh start. Deciding on Richmond, Kentucky, we were searching for the perfect place. Just come over the ridge and anyone will feel like they are home. A hairstylist and salon owner for 30+ in Northern Virginia, we decided to start with a hair studio in the countryside. Being so popular for a unique environment, we felt that we needed to share our home for those who need to get a way.

Joyce Green purchased this chateau / country house in 2005

Why Joyce Green chose Richmond

Nestled in the heart of the Bluegrass country, it is a simple life with the enjoyment of the wildlife and peacefulness of the surrounding area. Close to I-75, you can be in many different towns within 20-45 minutes, Louisville being 90 minutes. All places being very accessible.

What makes this chateau / country house unique

Jordan Hill Farm originally was built in the 1800's. ( We have pictures for your enjoyment). The previous owner had a vision and rebuilt it to have the uniqueness of the past with bringing features such as city water to the comfort of today. Logs originating back to the 1800's along with the fireplace in our Frontier room, and spiral staircase, other features include our kitchen cabinets and other wood work in our home coming from the timber of the land.

Absolutely amazing!!!

  • 5 of 5

We planned our first ever family reunion at Jordan Hill Farms. There were 14 of us and everyone raved at the house, the property, the relaxation, the chef's dinner ~ there was more than enough space for everyone to be together and also more than enough space for everyone to find a nook for some alone time.

The front porch was a wonderful retreat on hot afternoons ~ we could sit in the porch swings and feel the warm breezes as we watched the hummingbirds dance to and fro. The hot tub as a nice retreat in the evenings. The kitchen was large and spacious and the beds were very comfortable.

The children LOVED the horses and Joyce went above and beyond in having a pony brought down for their riding pleasure.

Joyce was super accommodating in all regards. We hope we're welcome back again as we'd certainly love to do this again in years to come!!!

Jordan Hill Farm was hands down the most beautiful, serene and enjoyable property we have stayed at!

  • 5 of 5

Joyce and Joe were so hospitable and lovely!! We felt right at home before we even got there! Everything we needed was there on the farm. From the scenery, to the hot tub, to the fire pit, to Cory and Elmer (their beautiful horses), to the time-kept nature of the gorgeous decor... It truly was our home away from home and we cannot wait to return every year!

A little piece of Heaven at Jordan Hill Farm

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I, along with our daughter and her family stayed at Jordan Hill for a week. There were 6 of us and we were able to spread out and really enjoy our time in this beautiful, relaxing home. The minute we arrived, my granddaughter and grandson (11 year old twins) made their way to the horses. The horses are very sweet and the kids loved spending so much time with them and feeding them apples and carrots. Also, being able to watch the horses from inside the house was a real treat. Upon arrival, Joe was very welcoming, showing us around and giving us a tour of the kitchen. He was wonderful. We requested Chef Tim's services (Jordan Hill Catering) to cater a birthday dinner for my daughter and her husband who were both having birthdays. The dinner he provided for us was absolutely delicious and he set it up in high style in the dining room, very professionally done. Wow -- I sure wish he lived closer to us; we would be using his services all the time. What a treat! Some of the things that we loved:

--The front porch swings -- we spent hours out there just enjoying the peace and quiet...awesome

--The wonderful kitchen -- it is full of everything you could possibly need for cooking. My daughter and I love to cook, so this was a real treat.

--The deck in the back of the home -- there are several patio tables and chairs, very comfortable, in a very serene environment

--The fire pit in Jordan Springs -- Joyce and Joe even provided chairs and and set the fire logs up for us.

--The abundant first breakfast provided for us -- Joyce provided enough food for our first breakfast that we were able to use it for several days.

What a nice gesture and very much appreciated.

--The scenery is awesome..85 acres of rolling hills and trails. Wow, we just soaked it in.

--The hot tub which was well maintained...we enjoyed sitting out there on the deck in the evenings and overlooking the rolling hills.

--Elliott and Rigley, the dogs -- the kids loved cuddling Joyce and Joe's dogs, and our dog fit right in with them.

Thank you, again, Joyce and Joe for a wonderful week at Jordan Hill Farm. We look forward to coming back.
