It’s that time of year again — a chance to look back and marvel at some of our city’s most beautiful and extravagant homes. We started this practice last year by charting the most expensive neighborhoods in Louisville, and what a list we made!
All that lay before me was crunching the numbers for 2014 and … voila! We can partake another holiday tradition of ogling and gawking to our heart’s content.
To remind all of the methodology, we’re considering Jefferson County neighborhoods where at least three homes sold over $500,000 from Jan. 1 until today. (Next year I might up the ante, but we’ll cross that bridge when we come to it.)
This year, we have 31 of the most expensive neighborhoods in Louisville, located mostly along the river to the north but still a few representatives to the east and more centrally located, as well.
Without further ado … on to the countdown!
