Hillcrest Homes are selling!

We see over and over that the housing market is in the recovery mode.  We think that a strong example would be the Hillcrest neighborhood in Prospect.  This is a luxury subdivision with homes that are both active and SELLING.  There are 4 pending sales as I write this and there have been 11 completed sales since the first of the year.  Homes here range in price from $400,000 to in excess of $800,000 with the oldest home 11 years of age.  In this price range, you expect to see many homes on the market for a long time, but 5 were on the market less than 45 days. 

The Oldham County School System is always a draw to this area and Hillcrest would be no exception. Oldham County Schools are award winning and highly regarded in KY and a model for which other communities strive to master.

People would consider these executive homes as most of the homeowners commute to Louisville for their work, but love the slower lifestyle of Oldham County.  you will find that there is more room and houses with acreage in Oldham County.  There are several golf courses and country clubs close to Hillcrest.

Finished basements are common in all of these homes, with several focused on entertaining. Other basements have exercise rooms or more bedrooms for guests or the teenager.  Kitchens are meant for the gourmet chef and granite countertops would be the norm. The Master Suites are meant to pamper the owners and many have a separate reading area as well.  The landscaping is ornate which requires plenty of water in the summer with an irrigation system.

Hillcrest amenities would include the clubhouse, swimming pool, tennis courts, and a playground.  Garbage pickup is also included in the Hillcrest HOA fees.

205 Princess Ct in Mount Washington

We have always thought that the original Kingswood Subdivision has some of the best bargains in the Greater Louisville Area.  This subdivision is located about 4 miles east of Mount Washington, KY.  It is a little strange, but Kingswood has a Taylorsville, KY mailing address, yet is located in Bullitt County.  I am not sure why it is labeled as such since it is several miles to Taylorsville and no clear way to get there.  Houses in Kingswood sell in the mid $200’s to upper $300’s.  This was a great home that sold in 6 days.  Contact the Hollinden Team today to see how we can get your home sold.

205 Princess Taylorsville KY

We picked up 205 Princess Ct about a month ago through the foreclosure process.  This was one of the rare foreclosures in the Kingswood neighborhood.  The house sits on a .8 acre lot at the end of a cul-de-sac with trees for a backdrop. The yard had not been maintained for the last couple of years and was overgrown.  Ryan Wilson with Green Thumb Landscaping made quick work of cutting trees, grinding stumps, trimming bushes, and of course, cutting the grass.

205 Princess kitchen Mt Washington KY

The kitchen appliances had magically disappeared before our possession.  We decided to put in top of the line Maytag Stainless Steel appliances.  You can see that this is a high level kitchen by the wood encased hood over the range.

 There is a lot of architectural design throughout this house with vaulted ceilings in 3 rooms upstairs.  This house has no carpet as all flooring is oak hardwood or 16” ceramic tile.  With 4200 square feet, there is plenty of room to spread out.  There are 4 bedrooms with the basement bedroom probably the largest of all.  There is lots of potential for entertaining in the basement as the wet bar has already been built.  The fireplaces on both levels add to the coziness.

In addition to the pictures that we have posted online, we also made a 205 Princess Court video with our “flip” camera.  The video gives a little different perspective than normally seen in real estate virtual tours.
