Default Before you make a mistake..

Stew,

Before you make a mistake, I recommend that you run a test drive from Pewee Valley, Moser Farms (be sure you are in Oldham County), to Ft. Knox during drive times. While living in LaGrange which is far eastern Oldham County, I remember driving to Ft. Knox High soccer games in 45-50 minutes. According to MapQuest, from the Pewee Valley Post Office to the Patton Museum the distance is 52 miles. Most of this distance is 65 mph along the Gene Snyder (I-265) plus a reasonable 4 lane highway from the Snyder to Patton entrance.

It's a bit too far for me to want to commute, but only you can judge your comfort.

You will really need a good realtor. There are some very nice areas in that part of the county, but there are also a lot of rough ones. It's middle to lower-middle working-class, in general.

Just my opinion, and I understand I may take a little heat for it.

That may be true for areas west of Dixie Highway, but the area bounded by Dixie Hwy to the West - KY 841 to the South - New Cut Road to the East - and Iroquois Park to the North is upper middle class with NO rough areas

According to Google maps that would take about 40.0 mi – about 54 mins... although you would be going against the heaviest flow of traffic

The Audubon Park/ Eastern Parkway area of Louisville would be about 5 miles closer (35.0 mi) and Valley Station would only be 19.0 mi

I just realized that Louisville schools aren't necessarily done by where you live. It's some sort of a lottery system?

We aren't planning on having kids for another year or two so I was mainly concerned about schools in terms of resale value. It doesn't sound like the schools would play a big part in that.

If you don't need schools, I would tell you the absolutely best area is the Kenwood Hill area. While small, its a grand little community.
