Crescent Hill Homes for Sale
First developed in the 1850s, Crescent Hill is an historic Louisville neighborhood located just four miles east of downtown. Bounded by Brownsboro Road on the north and Lexington Avenue on the south, it sits on a ridge between two forks of Beargrass Creek. In part due to the abundance of locally owned shops, cafes, restaurants, and bars on Frankfort Avenue – which runs through its middle – Crescent Hill boasts some of the best culture in Louisville.
But it wasn’t just the growth of unique shops, eateries, and watering holes that recently led Southern Living to feature Crescent Hill as one of the “best comeback neighborhoods” in the entire south. Located within walking distance of Seneca and Cherokee Parks, this beautiful urban community offers not only some of the most attractive homes in the city, but also some of the most attractively restored homes in the nation. With architectural styles ranging from Victorian to bungalow, homes in this area sit on large and well-maintained yards and have those sizable porches famously attributed to classic southern homes.
Crescent Hill is also home to a number of Louisville’s cultural landmarks. The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary is a world-renown religious institution located along beautifully tree-lined Lexington Avenue. Established just after the turn of the century, the Crescent Hill Public Library building is, in addition to the wonderful selection of books it contains, itself worth checking out.
Located so close to downtown, Crescent Hill is able to maintain a much more bucolic feel than one would expect. This is undoubtedly the result of the preservation of many of the ridges’ original trees and vegetation, not to mention the proximity of Seneca and Cherokee Parks. Given the spirit of conservation and restoration that has made this urban neighborhood nationally known, it is no wonder that it is one of the more sought after areas in the River City.
