Overview / Comments

Claudia Sanders Dinner House, the restaurant created by Colonel Sanders for his beloved wife in Shelbyville, Kentucky, is now for sale.

The sale includes the real estate, the thriving restaurant business still operating and serving over 100,000 guests a year, and the house that served as Sanders' primary residence for over 25 years.

The real estate consists of 3.03 commercially-zoned acres and two structures. The first is Blackwood Hall, a 5,000-square-foot residence that belonged to Colonel and Claudia Sanders from 1959 to 1984. The second is an almost 25,000-square-foot restaurant, banquet hall, and event space.

With its proximity to the Kentucky Bourbon Trail, Louisville, and fast-growing Shelbyville, this property is well-positioned to become a major tourist attraction, distillery, or event center.

Area Description: Shelby County is situated in what is known as the Golden Triangle of Kentucky, or where Louisville, Lexington and the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky area are connected by nearby interstates 64, 75 and 71. Shelby County is on the Bourbon Trail, with two distilleries: Jeptha Creed Distillery and Bulleit Distilling Co. Shelby County is the fastest-growing county in the Louisville metropolitan statistical area with 14.2% population growth from 2010 to 2020, according to the U.S. Census. People living here get the best of both worlds. Situated between Louisville and Lexington, it is a perfect place to settle. Not only do you get the downhome feel of a small town, but you are close enough to the more metropolitan cities to enjoy all aspects of life without the big city feel. Stroll the quaint streets of downtown Shelbyville, with its antique shops, coffee house and boutiques. Just a few miles down the road you'll find The Outlet Shoppes of the Bluegrass in beautiful Simpsonville. From e-commerce to manufacturing to tourism, Shelby County is experiencing a growth spurt — with no end in sight.
