What’s not to love about Norton Commons? Single, married, starting a family retired – no matter what stage of life you’re in, there is a place for you in this burgeoning Master Planned Community situated in the desirable 40059 zip code. You’ll find this haven of good neighbors and ample amenities located just off Chamberlain Road and Highway 22, set on 600 acres of Jefferson County and Oldham County land in the East End of Louisville, Kentucky.
A three-minute drive gets you to the 64-E, 71-N and I-265 interchanges where you can access the downtown core in just 20 minutes. Norton Commons is less than 30 minutes from all the wonders of Louisville – like Churchill Downs, the Louisville Slugger Field, Louisville Mega Caverns, the Louisville Zoo, Louisville Waterfront Park, Kentucky Peerless Distilling, the Frazier History Museum, Old Louisville, and more!
The moment you enter the community, you’ll notice handsome landscaping and evidence of protective covenants that ensure lasting value on a real estate investment here. The 20 builders with a footprint in the community are held to high standards and must be approved by the Builder’s Guild before they are able to construct homes in the area. These homes could range from modest $150,000 ranches, to spacious $400,000 family homes, to multi-million-dollar mansions, which all sit side-by-side. You’ll find everything from Foursquare Arts & Crafts and Federal Classics to Greek Revivals and Italianate Cottages. Empty nesters and executives also have a selection of low-maintenance condos and townhomes to settle into if they’re looking to downsize.
This is a community of sociable homeowners who walk for exercise, participate in neighborhood special events, and who feel a genuine sense of pride regarding where they live. Local residents have everything they could ever want within walking distance from their doorsteps – restaurants, swimming pools, a brand new YMCA, boutique shopping, brand new Jefferson County public and private schools, supermarkets, a local post office, professional services, churches, a fishing lake, dog parks, picnic pavilions, recreational trails and a large amphitheater.
In the south section of the Norton Commons community, there are ample move-in ready homes for the buyer who is pressed for time and jonesing to get into this “in-demand” development. However, for the most discerning buyers, there are opportunities to have a custom residence built in the north. All these homes are heated and cooled using geothermal energy. High-end builders are outfitting homes with huge walk-in pantries, built-in storage, first floor master bedrooms, renovated basements and other coveted features.
