Highlands. Enough said. You may be able to afford some of the small 1920s bungalows near st agnes school, where your kids may go

Highlands is a great suggestion indeed. They could also explore Original Highlands and Clifton.

A little closer to Middletown is St. Matthews, I suggest that that area be examined. Nice, semi-historic suburb near I-64 & the Watterson Expressway. Plus, during rush hour, it would be 20 minutes to Middletown at the worst whereas coming from the Highlands, IF there is an accident along her route, that figure could increase to 30 minutes. Plus, it's still relatively close to the Highlands and St. Agnes, anyway. If I were the original poster, I'd probably pick St. Matthews.

i'm a huge fan of the highlands as well as clifton/crescent hill. but why not look in middletown? it's a nice safe area with just about all the criteria you mentioned (except for nearby parks) and would equal a very short commute.

I must agree with the above posts. I enjoy the Highlands from the North end starting at Highland Avenue running South on Bardstown to Taylorsville Road. There is simply no better place to live with all the shops and restaurants. (See 40204 and 40205 zips)

A close second place is Crescent Hill and Clifton. The crown jewel of the city is Cherokee Park, in my humble opinion.

Good Luck!

While the Highlands might indeed be the ultimate landing place, to assume that it's the only place is not due-diligence. There are many very good Catholic schools in Louisville, but there are a few stinkers too. Just be certain the parrish where you land is in your family's best interests (plural interests).
