Today was a video tour day. Haven’t done one in a while. Need to start doing more. I really enjoy them!
Went to a popular neighborhood called Rabbit Run. It is one of those neighborhoods that you’ll notice people’s face light up when you mention it. Everybody loves Rabbit Run. Watch to video to see why.
I guess my 3 fave things about it are:
1) The location. It is smack in the middle of anything you’d need. Map it to see what I mean. You can get to about any place without having to get on major roads. And if you do need major roads, it is so convenient to both Man O War and New Circle Road. To the east, you can get to all the shopping/dining/entertainment in the Fayette Mall area just by cruising up Wellington Way….which also is how you’d get to the giant Shillito Park or the dog park. To the west is both Palomar Shopping Centre and all the stuff that Beaumont offers like Liquor Barn, the library, and the YMCA. All you have to do is cross Harrodsburg Road and you are there. Schools? Both private and public ones are close too. Best of all, unless you are on one of the two cut through streets in Rabbit Run, you’ll never “Feel” like you have all this around it. It is a peaceful, serene place to be!
2) The houses. Most are either ranches or traditional two stories. There are a few contemporary ones in the neighborhood though since it was the tail end of that trend in Lexington when Rabbit Run was built. All the ones I have been in are what I call Easy Living homes. I mean that they were built to be lived in, rather than offering just eye candy to make you sign a contract to buy it. The rooms are usually large, you have plenty of storage, and the lots are good-sized for Lexington. Easy living in my opinion.
3) The feel of the neighborhood. To me, it just feels like this neighborhood is tucked away in the middle of a great location. There are lots of big trees and almost all the houses look super sharp. It’s one of those places that you feel inspired by the prettiness when you go for a walk. The high light street is Blenheim between Wellington and Meadowbrook. One side of part of this street backs to a wooded area. The builders kept some of the old trees. Very attractive.
Ok….time to watch the video now!
