My home search continues. I originally started my focus around the intersection of 71 and 265. gradually this has drifted to other areas, including more into oldham county, just to see what's out there.

my question is this. As a 28 year old single man who doesn't mind living in a quiet neighborhood, but still wants to be within reach of the social scene, would crestwood be too far out of the way?

thank you for any input you can provide.

Crestwood is located at I-71 exit 14. That means it is 15-20 minutes to downtown and 20-25 to the Highlands. Less to Frankfort Ave/St. Matthews/Hurstbourne, etc.

crestwood has become full of a lot of new developments it is a ways out of the city, but is still close enough to feel like you can go shopping or out to eat in Louisville whenever you want. Nothing is walkable unless you live RIGHT in town and wanted to walk to Sonic or MacDonalds but other than that you will have to drive at least 10 to 15 min for entertainment and other things to do. Have you checked out Norton Commons? Its not quite in oldham county but it is closer to downtown and may be more of what you're looking for.

Spence,

Before we bought our home in La Grange we spent quite a bit of time driving around eastern J-county, burning Tom's gasoline and getting the Grand Tour. Just based on what I saw I don't think you'll have any trouble finding something that fills your needs. We're new residents ourselves, so I'm afraid we can't offer much advice. That being said all of the regulars on this forum were quick to offer what turned out to be very helpful advice during our search. In our case we relied primarily on Tom Cox to point us in the right direction and I wouldn't hesitate to do it again.

Oldham County would be a nice investment. I'm 31 and single, and still enjoy the bar and club scene a few times a month. I currently live in Pewee Valley, and love it. However, Norton's Commons is an area I would look into as well. I really enjoy the concept and I think housing should appreciate well in the area. Depending on where you work, I would also look at Lyndon.

Spence425 you might also consider La Grange. We enjoy all the joys of country living while still having easy access to all the amenities the city has to offer. We're only 3 minutes from I71 and I can get anywhere within the greater Louisville area within 30 minutes. The Irish Rover Too on main street can be a nice place to spend a relaxing but enjoyable evening with friends as well. Should you decide at some later point to marry and have children you can't beat the schools in Oldham Co.

The only downside to Crestwood is the traffic. They area has been overdeveloped with no planning for growth. It often takes longer just to get to the interstate then it does to travel where you want to go.
