We are moving to Lville in june and just returned from a quick trip to look at houses. The place we loved the best was a planned community, Norton Commons. The prices are definitely higher due to the community amenities but it is truly a close knit family oriented place. There are shops and restarants all within the neighborhood which is still growing. If you are moving to the atea, i recommend taking a look at this area; the houses are of varying price ranges.

Is there anyone from the area with comments/thoughts regarding this community?

Thanks!

Laura

It is a very great area and will only get better with time. It is very walkable for the suburbs, but you pay some of the highest prices per square foot in the metro area. My only gripe is it is a complete "white picket fence" knock off of Louisville's urban neighborhoods. So, if you like Norton Commons, you will love the stately old homes in Crescent Hill, Highlands, Old Louisville, Beechmont, Audubon Park, and even some of the shotguns and bungalows of say, Germantown.

That said, there is probably no neighborhood in Louisville, not even the Highlands, where you can walk to literally everything you could almost ever need in life: private and public school, a grocery, several restaurants, a pharmacy, a few retail shops, a community pool, community parks, heck, even your doctor, your attorney, and your tax preparer could all be blocks from your doorstep. It has a very strong sense of community there.
