We are considering a move to Louisville, KY, for a job in the Watterson Park, Lynnville, Audabon Park area. We are looking for a safe, fairly upscale, professional area to rent.

We are in our early 40s, no kids, medium sized dog, and would want an townhouse, a home with small yard, or an upscale apartment. We are not urban, artsy, downtown, up and coming neighborhood people. We would probably like to live safely in the surburbs and come into the city to enjoy restaurants, museums, etc. Surburb would need the typical chain restaurants, Walmarts, Targets, and grocery stores. Commute times of up to 45 minutes are o.k. Neighborhood safety is the absolute top priority. We typically walk a dog fairly late at night and early in the morning.

Can you identify the neighborhoods to avoid?

Can you recommend neighborhoods to look at?

Are their suburban cities nearby that are worth checking out?

If you land a job in the Watterson (I-264) & Poplar Level Rd. area, you'll be about 20-30 minutes from most anywhere I would want to live within your criteria. If I am looking for apartment living, I'd have to consider those between the Mall St. Matthews and Baptist Hospital East. If you are looking for a rental home, there are many good homes in the 40207, 40220 area.

I can also suggest Forest Springs (I-265 & KY 146 area). There are few rental opportunities in Oldham County, but some really nice houses in the $ 150-200k range.
