Hi everyone, stumbled here looking for information on Lex. housing, specifically rentals fairly close to Cardinal Hill Rehab. One income, kids and a couple of cats. At least 3 bedrooms, maybe 4 if the price is right. Hopefully near decent schools with a good SE program.

Thanks

What is an SE program? This is awful but I don't know where Cardinal Hill is located, what part of town is it in? You will be able to find affordable housing to rent don't stress.

Cardinal Hill Rehab is on Versailles & Mason-Headley Roads. For the OP, that's on the westside, about 3.5 miles west of Downtown and two miles W/NW of the University of Kentucky.

If you're coming from, say, inner-city Baltimore, Detroit, or Dallas, then you might be able to handle it. But it really isn't the best part of town.

I do have a friend that used to live on a residential street parallel to Versailles Road only 1/4 mile from Cardinal Hill; she witnessed a murder immediately behind her apartment in January, a drug deal gone bad. This type of activity has become more and more common on Lexington's west side in the last 10-12 years. Sensibly, my friend moved out about five weeks after the event.

If you want to be fairly close to Cardinal Hill Rehab, look for housing in the Clays Mill area near Lafayette High School and Lexington Catholic High School. It's a much safer area and a 5- 10 minute drive to Cardinal Hill. If you don't mind me asking, what is your price range for housing rentals? One more thing, is an SE program a special education program? Since I don't attend public schools here, I can't comment on SE programs. I think Lafayette has a program in place, I can find out more from a friend of mine who attends school there if you'd like.

You might want to look in the Gardenside area. This includes older homes that are reasonably priced but you don't want to get down close to Versailles Rd which becomes more apartments and rental property. As has been mentioned, it isn't considered a generally safe area. Depending on how much money you're wanting to spend and exactly how close you're wanting to be to CHH would make a big difference in recommendations.

Yeah, we have a special needs child and are obviously concerned about that. Actually I saw something for rent in Nicholasville. The commute doesn't look too terribly bad. (I'm originally from Chicago so it takes a lot to scare me traffic wise.) Nicholasville looks like a decent place from what I've seen. Opinions?

How long of a commute are you used to? Commuting from Nicholasville to Cardinal Hill will take probably 30- 45 minutes depending on where in Jessamine County you will be living. However, I would advise against using Jessamine County Schools and would consider enrolling your child in private schools.

I'm used to 1/2 hour where I am now. I've had worse, obviously. Curious about your advice against the schools there. As far as price, I'm prolly looking at 800 or under, but it depends on the situation.

Commuting from Nicholasville to CHH isn't terrible. You can come in on Nicholasville Rd or Harrodsburg Rd and then even cut over to Clays Mill and on in depending on where the house is in Nicholasville. If you're only wanting to spend $800/month to rent, you will be able to get a lot more house in a surrounding city. That amount would be difficult for the size house you mentioned in a better area here in Lexington. Nicholasville schools are fine although I'm not sure how their SE program stacks compared to Lexington public schools. I would investigate and compare that. Otherwise, I would have no problem sending my kids to schools there if that's where I lived.

Jessamine County has a very unique perspective on their special ed - they focus a lot on non-categorical full inclusion vs the more traditional continuum of services especially for elementary. Some parents move to Jessamine particularly for it, others feel very strongly that their child's needs are not being met.
