Crestwood, Kentucky is One of the Most Desirable Places to Live in the US
In 2005 Crestwood, KY was voted the 52nd best place to live in America by CNN. Located in Oldham County just outside of Louisville, Crestwood also has one of the lowest crime rates in the country. Living in a town like Crestwood allows for a small, quiet town feel, but has the big city less than 30 minutes away. The community and schools are very involved, and the high school’s Oldham County Marching Dragons has won many awards. The thriving business district offers spas, a quaint bed and breakfast, and massage therapy, just to name a few.
Crestwood also has many churches, among the most well-known is the Duncan Memorial Chapel. The Duncan Memorial Chapel has been in an important part of the town since 1937 and now the Chapel hosts up to 350 weddings a year.
The median household income, as of 2009, was around $60,000 and the estimated home cost was around $186,439. If you’re in the market for a home, the town has many desirable residential neighborhoods: Kentucky Acres, Summerfield by the Lake, and Briar Hill Estates – all of which tend to be popular for families just moving to the neighborhood. Crestwood is also close to shopping in the East End of Louisville and there are many sports leagues and activities for children. Crestwood is the kind of place you want to raise your children in and always call home.
