St. Matthews KY Real Estate

Stately, upscale homes in a traditional Southern neighborhood.
Regularly named one of the best places to live in Kentucky, the charming, traditional Southern community of St. Matthews is located just eight miles from central Louisville. Beloved by state and city residents alike for its nostalgic atmosphere and friendly locals, St Matthews KY real estate offers potential homeowners a laid-back, quaint style of living within minutes of all of Louisville’s biggest and most popular amenities. 
Although the suburb played host to many Native American tribes, it was first permanently settled by European Americans in the late 18th century. The local economy relied heavily on potato agriculture, and the neighborhood only truly flourished after the Ohio River flood in 1937 forced families to leave the city center in search of higher ground. 
Today, St Matthews KY real estate is dominated by magnificent single-family homes and townhouses, many built-in classic Colonial Revival styles thanks to the influence of the famous architect, Stratton Hammond. Some properties find their roots within mid-century ranch constructions, and these are particularly sought-after as soon as they are listed thanks to their expansive lots and spacious floor plans.

What to Love

  • Beautiful homes and properties
  • Friendly, traditional Southern community

Local Lifestyle

Most St. Matthews residents are young and established families who chose the neighborhood for its spacious properties and proximity to the center of the city.

However, when it comes to community engagement and a welcoming atmosphere, no one does it better than St. Matthews.

Dining, Entertainment & Shopping

St. Matthews is home to one of Louisville’s most unique restaurants. Lou Lou Food and Drink is known for taking hearty, traditional Southern cuisine and incorporating the distinct flavors and cooking styles of New Orleans and Italy to create an innovative, one-of-a-kind dining experience. Another hidden gem is the Black Rabbit speakeasy lounge hidden behind the upscale facade of the Equus Restaurant. Offering rich, expertly crafted cocktails, an extensive wine, and spirits list, and a variety of small plates to snack on, the dark, brooding atmosphere of Black Rabbit truly transports its patrons back to the days of the prohibition. 
Alternatively, if a bright, airy setting and classic Italian food are in order, look no further than Silvio’s Italian Restaurant, where authentic dishes and a comprehensive whiskey menu draw customers from across the city.
