Affluent Louisville suburb with ample amenities
Located in Jefferson County, Kentucky, Indian Hills sits along the Ohio River. It is six miles east of downtown Louisville, so Indian Hills has convenient access to city life as well as a laid-back suburban ambiance. Indian Hills also has a lot of undeveloped woodlands that serve as nature preserves and parks.
Indian Hills gets its name from a local settler’s stock farm, which was one of the largest horse farms in Kentucky at the time. In 1911, the Veech family ordered the development of the land by Olmsted Brothers landscaping. By 1946, the Louisville Country Club and the original subdivision were completed, and houses put up for sale.
The homes in Indian Hills are mostly a mix of Craftsman and Colonial homes and average around $538,000. There are some truly gorgeous homes up for sale in the area, as well as some historic homes that add scenery to the landscape.
Indian Hills is a suburb, so it comes with all of the benefits of living between the urban and the rural. You get the safety and quiet of a small town with the conveniences of being in close proximity to a big city while touting an array of academic opportunities ideal for families with children. Nearly a third of households in Indian Hills have school-aged children. This area is also home to the young professionals who want the city’s closeness without the hassle of living in the heart of it all, as many households are made up of couples that are married but don’t have children.
Despite the suburban landscape of Indian Hills, there are quite a few shopping and dining opportunities available to residents and visitors.
