21 Reasons You Need To Visit Louisville This Fall: A Local's Guide

Check out this great article from Louisville native and travel blogger, Lia Saunders: Louisville, Kentucky is the city where I was born and raised, and although I’ve traveled all over the world, I’ve never found anywhere quite as special.

It’s a big city with a small town feel, as the locals like to say. Louisville has so much to offer and shouldn’t be overlooked for anyone planning a trip to nearby St. Louis, Chicago, Nashville, or Indianapolis! Read more.

Kentucky Select Managing Broker Interviewed by Zillow for Louisville Story

Zillow Blog

Best known as the home of the annual Kentucky Derby, Louisville remains under the radar for most people. But, as the locals will tell you, Louisville isn’t the small, southern town many envision. In the last decade, it has blossomed into a city that rivals other southern cities like Nashville and Charleston. Even as Louisville transforms, its history is not lost — everything comes with a side of the southern hospitality. It’s not uncommon to find a new condo development on one block in Louisville and towering historic homes on the next. With an endless number of bourbon bars, nearly a dozen museums and an intense basketball rivalry, Louisville manages to offer both the best of both worlds for those seeking the feel of a small town and the conveniences of a larger city.

Inside Select Homes: 2205 Shady Spring Court MLS #1379217

Take the eclectic charm of the Highlands, add Northern influences, then give it some breathing room on seven wooded acres adjacent to a nature preserve, and you’ve got 2205 Shady Spring Court.

Located on a secluded cul de sac in Paramount Estates in Oldham County’s Prospect, it’s evident this house was built to be a lived in and not simply a showpiece, though there’s no denying the sublime craftsmanship and décor.

Owners Elizabeth Sullivan, a learning specialist and therapist, and John Sullivan, M.D., a child psychiatrist, had restored an old home on Hill Road in the Highlands in the 1990s. At that time, they were sending their four children to St. Francis of the Fields in Prospect. The commute got to be too much, so they decided in 2001 to build a home closer to the school. The couple worked closely with builder Doug Amlung and architect Mary Herd-Jackson to bring as much of the Highlands with them as possible.

Tiny House Movement Comes To Louisville

For Zachary Hornsby and Stephen Lewis, the American dream is a $15,000, 160-square-foot home on wheels. It is their way of escaping economic hardships they saw family endure during the Great Recession. "I don't want to be in that same situation, where you have to work 50 to 60 hours a week," said Hornsby, adding his mother now is selling a home valued for less than what she paid for it. Instead, Hornsby and Lewis have become part of the "tiny house" movement, in which people live in homes typically less than 200 square feet — often built atop flat-bed trailers — to avoid being saddled with a large mortgage.

(Originally appeared on Refinery 29.com)

Whether you're contemplating a big move or just peeking over the fence to see how much greener the grass is, this little list is food for thought. Apartment Guide looked at its property listing data around rental rates and this Cost of Living Index.

(Originally posted on Courier-Journal.com)

“Did she come in yet?” asked Levon Wallace excitedly in the kitchen of Proof on Main, where he has been executive chef since Michael Paley moved to the 21c museum hotel in Cincinnati last year. “Who?” asked Matt Johnson, a sous-chef. “Myra,” Wallace said, as he pulled out his iPhone to show Johnson a photo — a pig’s-eye-view of a large Red Wattle hog, happily chewing. “Michael Paley and I went halvsies on her. She’s supposed to come in today.” Read more.
