The view from the street to each front yard is pristine, each lawn meticulously manicured. Norton Commons homeowners take pride and delight in their outdoor spaces, and it shows. We wanted to give you a peek behind the scenes into the backyards and take you on an exclusive photo tour to see the secret patios, courtyards and porches of Norton Commons.

From gurgling fountains to bursting blooms to glorious gardens, Norton Commons residents generously opened their gates to reveal a backyard bonanza of beauty. With creature comforts like hot tubs, TVs, fireplaces, and pizza ovens, summertime spaces become an extension of living spaces. With design inspirations from Charleston to Venice, homeowners Pat McGinnis and Laura Reed, Penny and Jack Milici, Don and Debra Ford and Charles and Sherry Henry generously opened their gates to show us their spectacular sanctuary spaces, stunning courtyards and showstopping entertaining spots.

Norton Commons
Norton Commons is Kentucky’s first and only Traditional Neighborhood Development (“TND”). Planned TNDs are the cornerstone of the new urbanism movement, which promotes the creation of diverse, walkable, and vibrant mixed-use communities assembled in an integrated fashion, resulting in a complete community. Norton Commons sits on almost 600 acres in northeast Jefferson County, and is currently home to over 1000 residences, 60+ businesses, 3 schools, and dozens of parks, pools and green spaces.
