The incredibly sought-after St. Matthews area of Louisville is ideally situated in the heart of Louisville's east end. Far from a dreary suburb, St Matthew's historic homes and buildings offer a sense of a small urban neighborhood. Packed with shopping, restaurants, parks, schools, churches, and culture, it's no wonder St Matthews is in such high demand. The styles of homes vary as much as its eclectic occupants, from charming Cape Cods to sprawling luxury manors. St Matthews prides itself as its own city, with its own mayor and emergency services serving its population of approximately 2,000 people.
