St. Matthews KY Homes


Homes and Real Estate Information for St. Matthews Kentucky

St. Matthews is the 20th largest city in the state of Kentucky and is home to about 17,000 residents. It’s just 15 minutes east of downtown Louisville and is considered one of the more popular suburbs with parks, golf courses, fantastic schools and two hospitals.

Although originally a small community of Louisville, it became its own town around 1905 but growth of the area really happened after 1937 when the Ohio River flood caused many families to leave the low-lying grounds of Louisville and move to the higher grounds of St. Matthews. This spurned the Mall St. Matthews, Louisville’s first indoor shopping mall, residential neighborhoods and schools.


The neighborhoods in and around St. Matthews include Bellewood, Brownsboro Village, Broad Fields, Cherokee Gardens, Maryhill Estates and Windy Hills but there are also several enclaves within St. Matthews including Richlawn and Norbourne Estates.
