Ashland Park Neighborhood in Lexington KY
Ashland Park is probably one of the first neighborhoods you’ll hear about if you are planning to move to Lexington Ky. Nearly 2,000 people live in this historic 600-acre development that was originally part of the Henry Clay Estate of the same name. Now 20 acres, the estate sits in the center of the subdivision. It was named over 200 years ago to honor the forest of ash trees that once grew on the property.
The distinguished neighborhood was platted in the early 1900s by the famous Olmsted brothers, who also designed New York’s Central Park. The streets curve gracefully under a canopy of mature trees. Since the majority of homes are 75-100 years old, the architecture is classic and beautiful. They simply do not build them like this anymore!
This noteworthy subdivision is just east of downtown and is bound by Ashland Avenue, East Main Street, Chinoe Road and Fontaine Road. The average household income of its residents is nearly $60,000, which compares to a state average of just over $41,000. If you would like to “window shop” I recommend starting your drive at the Henry Clay Estate and meandering towards South Ashland Avenue.
