I have to say that rppipa gave great information and covered the bigger cities in KY that have nice rural areas around them. I've lived in both Lexington and N. KY and you can be in the country in 15-20 minutes from many areas of them. Good luck on your move.

I know I'm a little late entering this thread but you may consider the Paducah, KY area. It's large enough to have a mall and restaurant row and in 10 minutes you're in the country or on the riverfront. Lots of horses in this area as well with Wranglers Camp at the LBL just a short distance away. Good luck!

Default Thank you!

Hi! I thought this post was long forgotten about!
I just came back from KY where I bought 4.27 acres in Edmonton. Just a few days ago! I am pretty excited! Thanks everyone

Hi guys! I totally agree with what rppipa01 has said. His info is right on the money.
One thing to remember, the farther south you go from Louisville and the farther out you are from any major city, the more likely you will be to find what you are looking for. If Bardstown is your starting point, head east or south from that area. You won't have to go far to find what you seek. Same is true with E-town.

Look at Henry County, also. It is north east of Lagrange, close enough to shopping in Lagrange, but one county over, putting you in a lower priced market, with lots of land still available. New Castle, the county seat - has smaller shops to offer - but getting to Lagrange to shop is still a snap.

City water - fortunately, or unfortunately in your case, many of the smaller rural areas are getting city water - but the prices are not that expensive. We live in a tiny city in southern Bullitt county. We have city water, but for a 2 bath house with 5 people and the washer going constantly - our bill has never been over $60.00 - the rates are just lower out here.

I know you'll find what you are looking for, though your buying price may need to go up a tad. Maybe not, though. Depends. Outside of Bardstown in Nelson County, you have New Haven and New Hope - small towns not terribly far, 10-15 mles from shopping - but the land is cheaper. I always thought Hodgenville would be great. The real estate market in that area is still low, too.

Good luck - sounds like you are in good hands already!

To HORSEJANE: RPPIPA01's posts are right on target, for my money. I think that you should avoid Columbia/Adair county, though. Its rather depressed economically, remote, and somewhat clannish. No,no, not Klan, but rather CLAN. As in " If y'all ain't from HERE, by God........etc", and all that related bs. The Louisville area might be your best bet, ie., close to a large city, cheap rural land,friendly/open-minded people, and so forth. The areas down here around Lex, on the other hand, are friendly, but unbelievably expensive, much more so than near Louisville.
