Homes for Sale Near The University of Kentucky Campus
The University of Kentucky is regularly in the news, in part because it is Lexington’s largest employer, with over 20,000 people on its payroll. UK utilizes cutting edge technology at its hospitals, has legions of diehard fans who are loyal to its athletic teams, and entertains thousands every year at its performing arts venues. If you see these as advantages, perhaps you’d like to live near the University of Kentucky.
If you choose to live in one of the neighborhoods that surround the main campus, you’d be able to walk to the stadium, the performing arts center, and even the Arboretum. UK is a hub for so many students and workers that restaurants, night clubs and shopping are conveniently located close by.
Buyers looking for housing close to UK campus will find a wide variety of options. Directly north of campus you will find a selection of two-story historic brick homes, most built in the 1920s. Lexington’s city center is less than one half mile from the northern border of campus, where many modern condos are for sale. Neighborhoods along the southern edge of campus abut the Arboretum, a 100-acre public park. Home buyers will find trendy cottages, mini-mansions, and fixer-uppers northeast of campus.
