I want to be within 30 minutes from Lexington.....

Asked by Teresa, Ocean County, NJ Fri Jan 25, 2013

I have 5 kids so low crime and great schools are a must. I am an Italian Catholic which I know isnt the norm in the South but anything close to that type of community would be nice.we are also a very conservative family. I MUST be around horses....to board, to ride , to train, maybe even have one on my property. Im looking for newer construction only, in the 250,000 range, on maybe an acre. If I had to rent at first the $1800 range is good.no flood zones or tornado alleys either! Just went through Sandy and had my fill! Employment isnt an issue because we would be coming with my husbands NY pension. Any suggestions??

Hi Teresa,
There are many houses available that may suit your needs. To start to narrow your search I would suggest going to http://education.ky.gov/ and deciding which school districts you prefer. If you are also entertaining the idea of private schools we have many available as well.

I am a horse person so I can relate to the equine aspect of things well. If you want horses on your property you really are going to need more than 1 acre. The most horsey subsections of the greater Lexington area within 30 minutes of downtown Lexington include- all of Fayette County (Lexington), Southern Scott County (Georgetown), Southern Bourbon County (Paris), Western Clark County (Winchester), Northern Jessamine County (Nicholasville), and Eastern Woodford County (Versailles & Midway.) If you want a small horse farm please visit http://www.lexhorsefarms.com - no registration is required.

Teresa,

I service the areas of Harrodsburg, Danville and Lancaster and personally live about 25 minutes south of Lexington. We love the area, but the communities of Versailles and Georgetown may also be the fit for you as well. Feel free to shoot me an e-mail and perhaps I may be of assistance or point you in the direction of someone that can if they are out of my area of expertise.
