The Highlands neighborhood is often referred to as “The Strip” or “Restaurant Row” with its high density of boutiques, eateries, pubs and clubs along the three mile stretch of Bardstown Road and Baxter Avenue. You’d never guess that these homes form the oldest neighborhoods in Louisville!
Popular attractions on The Strip include Molly Malone’s, Heine Brothers Coffee, O’Shea’s Irish Pub, Flanagan’s Ale House, Wick’s Pizza Parlor, Cumberland Brews, Café 360 and Ramsi’s Café on the World. There is ample space for people watching, as people in the Highlands take the saying “Keep Louisville Weird” very seriously.
Yet, despite the prevalence of hipsters and artists in the Highlands, it is also a comfortable haven for the unconventional lawyer or doctor and for local residents who frequent the upscale dining establishments here too. And when you just want to get away from it all, you can enjoy the 409 acres of Frederick Law Olmsted’s Cherokee Park. You can also walk, hike or bike through Tyler, Willow, Douglas, or Seneca Park.
The Highlands real estate hunters will find ornate Victorian homes, Cotswold cottages and Craftsman bungalows along the tree-lined streets in Highlands Louisville. Many of these eclectic homes were built from the late 1800s to 1947. Residents love that they are tucked away down idyllic streets, yet still just minutes from downtown and area colleges. You can expect to pay about $200,000 (or $111 a square foot) on average for Louisville Highlands homes for sale, although there are homes on Cherokee Road priced above $1 million dollars.
