A Markin Farm Custom Home for You

A new section of Twin Fences is now available and ready for you to begin your custom home. Once a part of Markin Farm, this acreage offers rolling hills, established trees and a peaceful, cul-de-sac setting. 


The Indian Hill site is just minutes away from the restaurants and shopping of Montgomery and offers a unique history. 


Markin Farm and the Peterloon Estate

John Emery, a downtown developer who built the Carew Tower and Netherland Plaza Hotel in the 1930s, created his own luxurious mansion at Peterloon in Indian Hill. In its long history, Peterloon hosted local Boy Scout Camporees and the Concours d’Elegance car show. 


While the estate home was being built, the Emery family lived on a portion of the 1,200-acre estate, in an area known as Markin Farm. 


Recently, 42 new building lots were carved out of the estate to create the Meadows at Peterloon, just off Montgomery Road. Following suit, Markin Farm has been divided into six generous building lots in a variety of acreage. This cluster of lots is accessed through an extension of Stirrup Cup Road in Twin Fences, just off Remington Road. 

Building a Markin Farm Custom Home


The desirable location and natural beauty of Markin Farm are sparking interest for new homeowners. One of the first houses to be built by a Hensley Home client will feature a neo-classical look that mixes stone and brick on the exterior.

Another client worked with Hensley to create this timber-accented luxury home. It sits beautifully against a wooded backdrop, just a stone’s throw from Markin Farm.
