YouTube - Lexington Ky Neighborhood Tour by The LEXpert: Ashland Park + Chevy Chase

I did a tour of Ashland Park and Chevy Chase today……and it was a great day to be out in the convertible.

So, if you’re not from Lexington and want to know what is so great about Ashland Park and Chevy Chase, here we go!

Both neighborhoods are in the heart of Lexington. If you look on a map, they are between Richmond Road and Tates Creek Road out to around Cooper Drive. When new, Ashland Park had bigger houses, while Chevy Chase had smaller houses…..but a lot of that has changed. There have been a lot of houses with huge additions. Some are on the back, and some ranches and 1 1/2 story homes have been transformed into 2 story houses.

Besides the cool older architecture and mature trees, it is one of the few places in Lexington that is truly walkable. There is a commercial district along Tates Creek Road/East High Street as well as on Euclid Avenue. On the opposite side of Chevy Chase is a road called Romany with a few businesses too. We’re talking barber shops, grocery stores, a french bakery, a hardware store, florist, restaurants, a post office…..and to sound like a Time-Life infomercial, plus many more!

Okay. The schools are Cassidy Elementary, Morton Middle, and Henry Clay High. All are popular schools. These have been the schools for these neighborhoods for as long as I can remember.

Prices? Well, I have seen a few smaller ones that need TLC go for around $250,000. Most of the ones I have seen lately seem to be in the $350-500k range. I think for $350-400k you can get an updated smaller house. To get an updated bigger one, you will be looking more along the lines of $400-550k. There are some that are going for much much more, but that seems to be what I would consider typical. Figure about $170-200 per square foot.

Hope you enjoy the video. I did have a few bloopers. I said the circular part of South Hanover was like a turn-a-bout rather than a round-a-bout. I also think I might have turned on Ridgeway and called it Dudley. If you look close, the blue Audi wagon that pulled out in front of me on East High Street was the SAME GUY that pulled right in front of me on Romany Road….watch out for that dude!
