"Cherokee Triangle is a Piece of Highlands History"

Like many neighborhoods in the Original Highlands, the Cherokee Triangle is beautiful. Historically it is one of the first "suburbs" of Louisville, developed in the late 1800s. You don't really see it as a suburb these days though. All the conveniences of The Highlands and easy access to downtown and the waterfront makes this place a gem just outside of Downtown Louisville. Cherokee Parkway runs as a main thoroughfare connecting Bardstown Rd and I-64. Willow Park, a quaint little area on the parkway is home to a summer concert series and family fun for all ages! Living in one of these large, historic homes also means that you are knocking on the door to Cherokee Park. Each year before the Kentucky Derby, Cherokee Parkway and The Cherokee Triangle Association host The Cherokee Triangle Art Fair ( one of my favorite times of year). This is a 3-day juried art fair where you can buy all sorts of cool stuff or just mingle with the artists and neighbors. This piece of history has tons to offer!
Pros
  • Great property value
  • Lots of nearby ammenities, including parks
  • Beautiful streets and homes

"Beautiful, Elegant, Charming, and Beyond"

I grew up in The Highlands and currently live on Cherokee Rd. It's amazing! Many of the blocks run parallel to Bardstown Rd / Baxter Ave, so you can walk to any number of restaurants, pubs, boutiques, grocery stores, you name it! The other blocks of Cherokee Rd are right along the edge of Cherokee Park and demand a bit higher of a price tag. Either way you will see old, stately homes (many Victorians), large mature trees, a number of small parks, as well as easy access to Cherokee Park, the 400+ acre beauty that was designed by Frederick Law Olmsted (central park in nyc, and many others). This is a dream street in The Highlands!
Pros
  • Close to Cherokee Park
  • Close to Bardstown Rd / Baxter Ave corridor
  • Amazing homes and great property value
Cons
  • Parking can be tricky during special events if you don't have a driveway

"The Largest Collection of Victorian Architecture"

It's true that Old Louisville has the largest collection of Victorian architecture in the country. It is a classic neighborhood that sits between Germantown and Downtown Louisville, full of two and three story Victorian homes. Old Louisville has great access to I-65, University of Louisville, and the Germantown and Highlands areas. Property value remains fairly steady, and you can typically get a lot of house for the money. Nice urban living.
Pros
  • Close to Expressways
  • Big, beautiful homes
  • Close to the University of Louisville
Cons
  • There is quite a bit of traffic

"A great Highlands Neighborhood"

The Belknap neighborhood is just across the famous Bardstown Rd from the Highlands-Douglass neighborhood. Located in the Highlands zip code of 40205, you have great local eateries in The Douglass Loop and on Bardstown Rd. You also have one of the largest chlorinated bodies of water built in a rock quarry...I'm speaking of Lakeside Swim Club. The streets are lined with trees and the architecture is classic (in keeping with the Highlands style). Let's not forget that Cherokee Park is just down the road!
Pros
  • Beautiful Homes
  • Strong Property Value
  • Walk to Everything
Cons
  • Parking can be tough at times if you don't have a driveway
