What We Love About Louisville KY (Besides Selling Homes!)

Are Ranch homes all the rage in Louisville?

Ranch homes for sale Louisville ky

Much like spray cheese, Black Friday and a good ol’ cheeseburger, the ranch style home is unique to America, capturing the hearts of homeowners for years.  Ranch homes first came to existence in the 1920s but were coined “ramblers” at the time. By the 1950s, the ranch home swept the nation and was by far the most popular choice, albeit transforming overtime to several variations including the California, storybook, suburban, raised, and split-level ranch. There are plenty of neighborhoods who feature a large number of ranch homes for sale. If you’re trying to find a ranch home for  $500,000 and up, you’ll love neighborhoods like Norton Commons and Rock Springs. For ranches from 350-500k, Barbourmeade, Brownsboro Park, and Hurstbourne have lots of options.  Ranches in the 150k-350k price range are the hardest to find, most sought after homes.  Apple Valley, Ashbrooke, Austin Woods, Barbizon Place, Barbour Manor, ...

2019 St.Patrick's Day Parade in Louisville

Louisville, Kentucky’s Annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade

Every year, Louisville, Kentucky hosts a one-of-a-kind St. Patrick’s Day Parade. It’s a celebration of Irish heritage, love of Louisville, and overall camaraderie. This year, the parade takes place on Saturday, March 9th, at 3pm.

Organized by the Ancient Order of the Hibernians, this is a Louisville tradition beloved by many of the city’s residents drawing in green-wearing lovers of the Irish from all over. Kicking off at the intersection of Baxter Avenue and Broadway (1248 E. Broadway), the parade follows the Baxter Avenue/Bardstown Road corridor through the Highlands eventually concluding around 6pm.

The parade itself provides fun and entertainment for the whole family. Floats, costumes, music, and cheers are shared with over 100,000 parade goers. Kids love the fun decorations, wildly dressed participants, and goodies that are often handed out. Adults love to experience the Irish culture, celebrate with friends, and enjoy a good Irish brew! Truly, it’s fun for all ages.

Valentine's Day Fun in Louisville!

Pam Ruckriegel Louisville Real Estate Pros

By the time February rolls around we are well past the holiday break and often sick and tired of being cooped up due to the winter weather. What better excuse to leave our cabin fever behind and explore the myriad options for good, warm fun than Valentine’s Day in Louisville?

The key to a romantic and fun Valentine’s Day in Louisville is planning ahead. Whether you are planning dinner and a movie, a concert, a play, or headed out to dance, call ahead and secure your spot!  

Maybe an ANTI VALENTINE'S DAY PARTY is your speed this year. Look no further than Monnik Beer Company. You can find Monnik in the up and coming Schnitzelburg  neighborhood adjacent to Germantown. It’s a fun spot with great beers on tap and additionally they are “….offering creative takes on pub fare in a casual dining setting.”  Their meats are locally sourced and their specials change based on what’s in season and locally available.  Who knows? Maybe you will find love on Valentine’s Day at this contrarian event.

Maybe your valentine is a Beatles fanatic! Headliners Music Hall is always a great spot to catch live music in Louisville and they have you covered for Valentine’s evening. As the Beatles famously sang, “All you need is love” and Abbey Road LIVE! will play two sets of The Beatles best love songs to get you and your date moving and grooving.  But again, don’t...

Louisville Real Estate Pros Present: 1700 Evergreen Rd. Anchorage KY

Situated amidst arguably the most desirable area in the Bluegrass State, this six-bedroom, three-story, 6,863 square-foot historic farmhouse makes it hard to know where to begin.  Do you start by extolling its luxurious interior with warm Brazilian cherry wood floors, grand fireplaces, chef’s kitchen, and elegant bathrooms? Or do you focus on the multiple outdoor decks and screened porch overlooking its 1.6 acres complete with a babbling stream, shady old-growth trees, and just steps away from direct access to one of the top-rated walking trails in Kentucky?  But you’d clearly be remiss if you didn’t start with the amazing services and entertainment the City of Anchorage has to offer, including the state’s top-rated school district, right?

We’ll try to get it to all, but simply put, this is one home you must see and experience for yourself to truly appreciate!

Low Maintenance Luxury Meets Convenience

Are you ready for total convenience living?  A life where everything is at your fingertips and hassles like yard maintenance and snow removal are handled for you?  A home to call yours whose builder considered ease of living at every turn, but also style, luxury, and a true connection to nature?

Then it’s time to challenge everything you thought you knew about condo living, because after you’ve seen this home you’ll realize your perceptions have been way, way too narrow.  

With over 4,000 square feet of finished living space you certainly won’t worry about being cramped.  A spacious open floor plan with flowing rooms that includes extra wide doorways and hallways, substantial closets and pantries, an expansive zero-entry shower, as well as a sizable back deck ensure that space is never a concern.  And you won’t have to sacrifice if you love ranch-style living. Everything you need can be found on the 2,640 square foot first floor! It makes all that the lower level has to offer (another truly self-contained living area complete with kitchen, bar, and family room) seem like a bonus! Great space for a home office or room for visiting guests.
