Greetings...

We are relocating to the Louisville area and wouldn't mind a few suggestions on where to begin our home search.

I'll spend half my time commuting to Elizabethtown and the other half traveling to the airport. Don't mind driving an hour to work. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

-Where you are working

Elizabethtown & airport for travel (50/50)

-How much you are willing to spend on housing

$300-$400k. Don't need too much space (~2500) but like a nice house with a larger yard.

-How long of a commute you're willing to tolerate

1 hour give or take

-If you have kids: Private school or public school?

One 6 year-old girl. Public school preferred.

-What type of neighborhood environment you are looking for: small town feeling? small city excitement? suburbia delight?

Small town feel with plenty of amenities

-Community amenities important to you

Good YMCA, Local restaurants, nice, safe parks for kids, mountain biking close by, good grocery store, and a hint of culture.

-Pie or cake?

-Where you are working

Elizabethtown & airport for travel (50/50)Depending upon where in E-town, one hour can offer a tremendous number of options. Including excellent school choices, superior housing choices, and many lifestyles

-How much you are willing to spend on housing

$300-$400k. Don't need too much space (~2500) but like a nice house with a larger yard.See above.

-How long of a commute you're willing to tolerate

1 hour give or take See above

-If you have kids: Private school or public school?

One 6 year-old girl. Public school preferred. Undoubtedly, the best public school system within your drive radius is Oldham County.

-What type of neighborhood environment you are looking for: small town feeling? small city excitement? suburbia delight?

Small town feel with plenty of amenities western Oldham County will cover all your amenity needs with the small town feels.

-Community amenities important to you

Good YMCA, Local restaurants, nice, safe parks for kids, mountain biking close by, good grocery store, and a hint of culture. Pewee Valley/Crestwood/Brownsboro win again.

The only disadvantage to all your needs is that Oldham County is at the upper extreme of your one hour commute time. A good second choice would be Bardstown, possibly even Hodgenville. Due to the coming slam on housing in E-town caused by BRAC at Ft. Knox, you might have trouble finding good value right now. I can direct you towards several very good E-town area Realtors. I have direct connections to E-town, Hodgenville, Radcliff, Brandenburg.

tomocox...thanks for the advice. Bardstown seems to be centrally located and worth a look. We have also been crusing the net for neighborhoods in the Anchorage, Goshen and Prospect areas.

Any contacts/help is greatly appreciated.

Anchorage is very, very nice and has a great public school. Only Anchorage residents can send their children there. The trade off is that taxes in Anchorage are very high. If you can afford it, Anchorage would be my choice.
