My family will be moving to Louisville in the near future. I like the Highlands/St. Matthews area, but want a home that is a little larger for the money. I have seen several houses in Flat Rock Ridge and Polo Fields listed for sale...does anyone live in areas or familiar with them? It appears to be in the middle of nowhere, but I haven't personally visited them yet. Are they near shopping/restaurantes,etc.? I have also thought about Middletown since it is more centrally located. Also, husband will be traveling to Lexington once a week and the airport.

I know the area pretty well. Unfortunately, you didn't share your budget. As there are homes in nearly every price range in the area, please give us a bit more to work on. Most homes in the Polo Fields area are $250-400K, where are you in that range?

I live in that area and it is absolutely wonderful. It's far enough out to retain a little of a rural feel but close to almost everything you need in Middletown. With the Gene Snyder Expressway, you can get just about anywhere in decent time. I didn't like the rush hour commute to downtown Louisville, if that would be an issue.

From my house to Middletown is about 7 easy minutes. Old Henry Road is building up commercially, so we should have even more choices soon. About the only thing we are missing is some really good restaurants in that area. Lots of fast food joints but very few top restaurants or even good ones.

I've lived all over Jefferson County and this area beats them all in my opinion. Highly recommended.
