Stately residences sit on large, tree-covered lots in the city of Indian Hills. Indian Hills is one of the wealthiest and most coveted neighborhoods in Louisville, Kentucky.
Zachary Taylor, the 12th President of the United States, originally owned a portion of the land in this historic neighborhood. The Veech family later owned the entire 502 acres of Indian Hills and kept it within their family for 118 years, through six generations. The land was used as a potato farm and for horse breeding before it found its way into the hands of the developers of the Louisville Country Club and Indian Hills. Indian Hills was ultimately incorporated as a fourth-class city in 1999.
The Louisville Country Club is an affluent, private club steeped in tradition. The club’s origins date back to 1908. Its 43,00 square foot, luxurious, elegantly appointed clubhouse is a popular place for prestigious social and sporting events. The club features an 18-hole championship golf course, two outdoor swimming pools and ten tennis courts.
Indian Hills is in the 40207 zip code of Jefferson County, approximately seven miles northeast of downtown Louisville. The resident children attend schools in the Jefferson County School district. The neighborhood is conveniently located near Highway 42 and Interstate 71, and it is an easy commute for residents working in the greater Louisville area.
The homes are styled in various architectural fashions, and many have spectacular river views and views of downtown Louisville. Beautiful residences situated on large lots, with long driveways and expansive, green lawns, are spaced along the natural, gently rolling Kentucky hills. Most homes were built in the 1950s and 60s. Tall, mature sycamore and maple trees line the quietly winding streets, and green space is abundant.
