Clifton/Crescent Hill

Crescent Hill-Peterson-Dumesnil House

Both Clifton and Crescent Hill offer a great mix of residential properties and walkable amenities, thanks to Frankfort Ave., which runs through both cities and bordering neighborhoods.The family-friendly Crescent Hill neighborhood gives off an urban-suburban vibe with its array of antique stores, restaurants, salons, boutiques and consignment shops that dot along Frankfort Ave. 

The Louisville Water Company Crescent Hill Reservoir, St. Joseph's Children's Home, and the Mary T. Meagher Aquatic Center all call the area home, too. The Crescent Hill branch of the Louisville Free Public Library was constructed in 1908 and was one of the first of nine Carnegie-endowed libraries in Louisville. Today, children enjoy reading books in the "castle" area of the children's section.

Clifton is home to the Clifton Center, Louisville Water Tower Park, Kentucky School for the Blind and the American Printing House for the Blind. Clifton Heights overlooks Clifton. Housing stock ranges from older shotgun houses and bungalows to suburban ranch homes.

Cherokee Gardens is a residential area along Lexington Road complete with large estates built from the 1920s to the 1950s. This desirable location offers a charming retrieve and is in close proximity to both Cherokee and Seneca Parks, the highways and the Highlands.
