My family and I may be moving to Louisville in the next year and I was hoping y'all could give recommendations of subdivisions w a lot of young families. The budget is up to $650. School would be CAL out off of 265, and I'd be working down by St. Matthews area. Any recommendations would be helpful. Thanks.

What is CAL~? St. Matthews is a nice area to live and to work in. I have no idea about young families or families, since I have none. But you should rent before you buy so you can check the areas out for yourself and see how you all like it.

Academy Ridge and Lake Forest are two close subdivisions near CAL that has many young families. If your budget is $650 weekly it should be no problem. However, I don't know of much housing available near CAL for that kind of a monthly budget. Most houses between St. Matthews and Middletown start at 250k and go up substantially from that amount.Good luck, CAL is a fine school.

Thx for the reply. The budget for mortgage is up to $650k, sorry I didn't clarify that in the initial post. I will check out those areas you recommended. Thanks. Any other recommendations are appreciated.

Locust Creek and Copperfield are also very close to CAL and well within budget and just great neighborhoods to live in. You couldn"t go wrong with any I've mentioned.

I'm not familar with CAL, but the public schools I am familar with. At one time they were good way back in the 1970's, but now the one I went to is ranked one of the worst schools to go to....and it used to be ranked one of the top schools way back in the 1970's. Private schools are a better way to educate your kids.

Christian Academy is a great academic and spiritual school along with having excellent, modern facilities. It also has many sports programs and other activities for the younger children. Of the neighborhoods I previously mentioned above you may want to look at Lake Forest. There are many CAL families and also young familes living there and thay have a neighborhood pool and clubhouse.The front section of Lake Forest are very reasonable. My friend recently purchased a house there and it had about 3500 sq. feet on the top 2 floors and also had an additional 1700 sq. ft of completely finished basement.It had 4 large BR and 3 full baths.He paid about 339k. The newer homes in the back are on larger lots(about an acre) and are larger homes and they start abouut 600k. I think you'll love the area and your fellow Centurions(CAL's nickname).
