Mount Washington – Area Information and Real Estate Overview
Mount Washington has grown in popularity among Kentucky residents due to its proximity to Louisville. In fact, some call it a great commuter market into the metro area while still offering a quiet community atmosphere for those looking for a little more room to spread out. In just the past decade the population has spiked from around 9-thousand residents to well over 15,000 in that time frame.
Located in Bullitt County, Mt. Washington was once the area where two stagecoaches crossed the country making it a popular outpost for those living in rural Kentucky in the 1800s. Today, the city is dotted with well-appointed neighborhoods and rural landscapes. Visitors are known to stop in the smaller downtown area or take advantage of the outdoor spaces Mt. Washington has to offer.
The real estate market is said to be reasonably competitive with median home prices at $210,000, just over the U.S. national average. Over 80% of residents own a home, and the downtown district is one of the areas most popular places to buy. Families love the cost of living and access to schools that are making significant improvements to their curriculum for Kentucky’s youth.
