Any have any info on this neighborhood? It's obviously older and not one of Lexington's "it" areas. Nice place to live? Is traffic noise from Circle 4 and Leestown an issue?

I have had a couple of clients that live in Meadowthorpe. They really like it. It has always been a nice neighborhood, it was just kind of forgotten until all the development started on that end of town. Now it is on more buyer's radar.

There is an elementary school right in the neighborhood that is doing pretty well. I am sure you'll hear New Circle some, especially if you live in the back of the neighborhood. The only thing I have ever heard anybody complain about is that if the wind blows a certain way, you get a faint smell from the water treatment plant on Manchester (aka Old Frankfort Pike).

I think it is a great neighborhood that has a lot of character........Hope this helps!

I agree with Lexpert. Meadowthorpe is a charming neighborhood, seems to be going through some sort of revival, and for that price range, I think it is the place to be. (My good friend has a listing just over 100K - small home but nice yard, nice street). For that budget, then I can't think of a better neighborhood.

The elementary school has the gifted and talented program (Quest), so it is a top rated school. The middle school and high school, I don't think they are that great.

I don't think street noise is an issue, at least not in terms of the houses I know. The people seem friendly - we have met Meadowthorpe people at the nearby dog park and have standing dinner invitations.

We lived in Meadowthorpe when we were first married. It's a quiet neighborhood. It's a quick drive to downtown. There are only 2 streets in and out so there is no through traffic. The only negative was that the cattle yard is not too far away and in the summer, when it's humid, the smell can be heavy. This only happened a few times a year so I wouldn't worry about it too much. Just thought you should be aware.
