Neighborhood Spotlight: Clifton

For many of us going on a stroll in the neighborhood has become a daily activity. Whether its walking down the street to the local grocery store or just taking a leisurely tour to get out of the house, the nice Louisville weather has been hard to pass up. That’s why we figured we would take you along with us while we visit one of our favorite Louisville neighborhoods: Clifton!

 

The Clifton neighborhood stretches from N Ewing Ave. to lower Brownsboro and Mellewood Ave just east of Downtown Louisville. 

Restaurants and boutiques have been filling this area for the past few decades, revitalizing parts that were previously dilapidated and attracting local artists. Murals like these can be found all over the neighboorhood. 

J. Gumbo's has been a staple of the neigborhood for over ten years. Support your local restaurants by ordering carryout or delivery!

Residents of Payne St. put out a "sharing basket" for passerbys to collect/replenish if they'd like. This house in particular creates displays like these for Hallowee, Valentine's Day, etc!

Vernon Ave has an amazing mix of architecture. 

Sign at the top of the chicken steps at the end of Vernon Ave. A great message for current times. 

The view from atop the chicken steps really reminds you why this area is called Clifton. Carved from quarries that were active up until the late 1800s, the steep cliffs can sometimes be tough to notice when the spring foliage begins to fill in. Originally wooden and used for local resident's chickens, these narrow steps were renovated in 1972 and have since been a great gateway between lower Brownsboro Rd and Frankfort Ave. 

"Doesn't the train bother you?" Is one of the most frequently asked questions for Clifton residents. Luckily Clifton is a "quiet zone" for train horns, creating a need for signs like these signalling to pedestrians on footpaths to watch for trains. As for the trains themselves being a nuisance? "Ya just get used to it" locals will say. 

Community chalk?

Some more positive messages being displayed at Dharma Meghah Yoga Shala  at the corner of Payne and S. Clifton. 

Normally we don't suggest taking pictures on the train tracks but this was a pedestrian walkway, we swear!

Kelly Wathen - Agent of the Week

Meet our Family Realty Agent of the Week

Kelly Doyle Wathen

Here is what Kelly has to say:

"I’ve proudly lived in Louisville, KY the majority of my life, only leaving for a short period to attend the University of Kentucky (Go Cats!). I grew up in St. Matthews attending Our Lady of Lourdes and Sacred Heart Academy. I love this city and all its little unique pockets.

My passions for marketing and real estate collided in 2017 when I became a licensed Realtor®. Since, I have represented buyers and sellers, helping turn their dreams into a reality. I believe your home is your oasis. It is a place where life is lived, families are built, and memories are made. There is not a more important purchase, which can make it a little overwhelming. My goal when working with clients is to use my knowledge of buying and selling real estate to make the process as smooth as possible.

Outside of work I enjoy spending time with friends, family and my two amazing guys; my husband Turner, and son Hank. Hank was born in August 2017. Watching him grow and learn has been the highlight of my life. I am also working towards becoming a better cook. I am admittedly not a great one, but we’ve only had to order pizza once because of my dinner Pinterest fail, so I think I’m doing okay.

I love working for Family Realty, the support and culture of the brokerage is truly something special and I am lucky to be part of it. I hope one day myself or one of my fellow Family Realty colleagues can help make your home dreams come true!"

R. Clayton Knauer - Agent of the Week

Meet our Family Realty Agent of the Week

R. Clayton Knauer

Here is what Clayton has to say:

"I have been a licensed Realtor in the Louisville Metropolitan Area since 2005. In that time I have helped countless families and investors successfully buy and sell Real Estate. Prior to my career as a Realtor I was a licensed Mortgage Banker for 4 years. I have also worked in the remodeling and new construction of homes since I was 15 years old. You could say I have spent my life around Real Estate in one capacity or another.

Born and raised in Oregon I stayed in this area after attending Indiana University. Since 2004 my Western KY bride Toots, my dog Gus, and I have made St. Matthews our home. We chose Louisville to be “our town” and have been very happy to take advantage of all The Ville has to offer. When not working I enjoy spending time with my wife and friends, or fishing if I can find the time.

In 2018 I joined Family Realty after leaving a large, international Real Estate company. I was drawn to the personal service and “family” feel clients receive from this neighborhood company. Honesty, integrity, transparency, and service are my standard and Family Realty fits that model naturally.

If you or anyone you know is interested in buying or selling Real Estate I would appreciate the opportunity to prove how we can help achieve that goal."
