If there's a hot spot in Louisville real estate, it's the Highlands. In fact, the Highlands are so popular that neighboring subdivions have "borrowed" the Highlands name for themselves so it's tough for some people to know where the Highlands begins and ends. Neighborhoods like Tyler Park, Cherokee Triangle, Deer Park, the Strathmoors, depending on who you speak with, may just say, "I live in the Highlands!" The Original Highlands is a much smaller area west of Baxter Avenue.
Much of the draw are the amazing number of great restaurants and shops that run up and down Bardstown Road. There's never a shortage of places to eat! As far as housing goes, there's a wide variety of home styles, sizes and prices in Louisville's Highlands neighborhood.
Nearby Clifton has older homes but Crescent Hill is on par with the age/style of home you'd find in the Highlands. St. Matthews is newer and farther to the East.
The Highlands neighborhood can be found in: Homes for Sale in 40204 and Homes for Sale in 40205.

Photos of Highlands Neighborhood
It's my pleasure to take photos of some of Louisville's best neighborhoods and publish them here for you. Please click on any of the photos below to view larger ones.
The first homes in the Highlands were built around the turn of the 20th Century then into the 10's, 20's and 30's. But even today, you'll find a few older homes that have seen better days being torn down with new houses built in their place.
Home styles vary greatly in the Highlands. Lots of Victorians, Bungalows and Colonial Farmhouses but also, as you see here, a German inspired cottage house.
Home prices vary greatly, due primarily to condition. Properties that have been updated with today's modern technology but retain their charm, go for top dollar in the Highlands.
Lot sizes are narrow but sometimes deep and front porches are very common on most streets.
The Highlands, due to it's popularity, has a good share of investors who've purchased dilapidated homes to fix-up and then sell. Not that it is easy to do but at least here in the Highlands, you know you'll have a lot of buyers come and review your work.
This stucco colonial has a French appeal and stands out in a neighborhood full of red brick.
Here's a great example of well-kept bungalow home that resides on a double lot with lots of mature trees.
Home prices also range widely as well. There are tiny, two-bedroom homes, as well as, large estate homes on Cherokee Triangle can sell in the millions. It all depends on what you want and if your Realtor can find it for you.
Here is another beautiful estate home in the Highlands that sits up on a hill. What's not to love?
One of the other big draws is that the Highlands is near one of Louisville's most beautiful public parks, Cherokee Park. A site for many joggers and bikers, it's a highly desireable place for people that love being outdoors.
