I think it’s cool that Lexington is in on this hot new trend! Caldo serves their broth in a cup so you can drink it as you would coffee or other hot beverage. Flavors include chicken, beef, miso, and ginger with the option to add extras such as chili oil, lemon, fish sauce or tomato paste. You can get your broth cold or even in a smoothie. You’ll also find salads, granola and coffee on the menu with everything centered around the intention of harnessing the healing powers of whole foods. Caldo is locally owned by a well-known chef and caterer who also owns Wild Thyme, a popular gourmet cooking shop.

The broth shop is located in the booming Warehouse Block shopping district just east of downtown. This recently renovated area is full of small locally owned businesses including National Provisions French bakery, market and beer hall (formally National Boulangerie), Designs Unlimited Jewelry, a trumpet maker, Breakout Games, Locals bar, and many more.

Neighborhoods within a half mile of Caldo in Lexington Ky include Kenwick, Mentelle Park, Bell Court, and Ashland Park. Most homes in the area are bungalows and brick houses about 100 years old.

Lexington Ky Voted Top Five Best Small City to Retire

top ten reasons to move to lexington ky

Lexington Ky was recently named a top city to retire.

Lexington Ky sure has been getting a lot of good publicity lately. We’ve been rated as one of the best cities to start a new life, one of the cleanest in the world, and one of the most educated cities in the U.S. The latest buzz is that Money Magazine ranks Lexington Ky one of the top five best small cities to retire.

Here’s why:

1. Lexington is the perfect size. At a population of 308,000 we are not too big nor too small. We offer all the conveniences of big city living without the traffic—  or the high prices. We have a vibrant downtown which, as the article states, is “packed with galleries, restaurants, and boutiques.”

2. Lexington is surrounded by horse farms and the rolling hills of the Kentucky Bluegrass area. Drive 15 minutes in any direction from downtown and find yourself surrounded by rural countryside.

3. Lexington has relatively low taxes including low sales tax, property tax, and income tax. Lexington is a very affordable city- and my out of town home buyers tell me this all the time!

4. Retirees go to college for free by taking advantage of the renowned Lifelong Learning program at the University of Kentucky. This nationally acclaimed program allows seniors to sit in on college classes at no charge.

5. Lexington is home to one of the nation’s best hospitals, UK Chandler Healthcare.

What Money Magazine does not talk about are the many FUN things to do in Lexington KY! These range from watching the horse races at Keeneland to visiting the local wineries, bourbon distilleries, and craft breweries. There’s fabulous biking and motorcycle touring in the area, plus hiking and canoeing…not to mention our thriving arts scene!

The article recommends retirees live in downtown Lexington. While downtown has many modern condos, I would advise seniors to not limit themselves to the center of town. There are many areas that may be even more suitable. I have been selling real estate here for 14 years so if you are planning on moving to Lexington Ky call me to learn more about particular neighborhoods.

If taking free college classes is high on your list in your retired life, take a look at these neighborhoods that are convenient to UK. Click the link to see homes for sale near the University of Kentucky.

And here are my Top Ten Reasons for Moving to Lexington Ky – whatever age you may be!

By the way, the differences between townhouse and condominiums are defined by how the properties are owned. A townhouse is legally different from a condo in the way that the owners hold title to the land beneath their units. Typically, townhouse owners own the land beneath their units, while condominium owners own the air space in their units and own the land collectively with the other condo owners in the complex.

Breast Cancer Awareness in Lexington Ky

141027-1

Breast Cancer Awareness in Lexington Ky

With the orange of Halloween overriding everything, I did not want October to slip by without mentioning this:  The lights in a downtown parking garage have been turned pink to honor Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

These photos are of the Helix Parking Garage at 150 West Main Street. The parking garage went under major renovation recently that closed the structure during $3 million dollars of repairs and upgrades. It reopened last year with new features including computerized gates and payment terminals, along with digital signs that indicate the number of open parking spaces. This parking garage is the main parking lot serving visitors to the Fayette County Clerk’s office, which issues drivers licenses, vehicle registration, voter registration, and marriage licenses, among others services- making this Lexington’s busiest parking garage.

Breast Cancer Awareness in Lexington Ky

Drive by any night this month to see it pretty in pink! After that I presume it will go back to its rotation of primary colors that change every half minute or so. Other buildings in pink to honor Breast Cancer Awareness Month are the PNC bank building just down the street at 301 East Main Street, and several buildings on the University of Kentucky campus.

If you want to see more cool stuff in our urban center, you might want to consider moving downtown. Check out my recent Top Ten Reasons to Move to Downtown Lexington. And click on this link to see condos and homes for sale in downtown Lexington.

Walk to the Grocery Store in Lexington Ky!

Recently I showed a property to a client who was thrilled that it was located less than a half mile from a Kroger grocery store. One would think that feature would appeal only to the elderly, but my client was young. In fact, being able to walk to shopping is a plus for all ages. After all, you save gas and get some exercise. Lexington doesn’t get a lot of snowfall so residents can walk to the grocery store practically year round. Food stores are typically in plazas where shoppers will find other retail options, usually a bank, dry cleaner, nail salon, and restaurants. Here are some of the grocery stores in town along with their surrounding neighborhoods. Each neighborhood listed is one half mile or less from the market.

Homes for Sale Near Hamburg in Lexington Ky

homes for sale near hamburg lexington ky

homes for sale near hamburg lexington ky

Everyone is talking about the biggest real estate deal in the county- the $185.7 million sale of Hamburg Pavillion shopping center last week. Said to be the biggest real estate transaction in Fayette County history, the sale includes big box stores, small shops, and parking lots in two parcels including Garden Ridge, Marshalls, Best Buy, Regal Cinemas, Michaels, Pet Smart, Party City, Barnes & Noble, the Hamburg Village shops and more. Here’s why you should consider looking at homes for sale near Hamburg in Lexington Ky.

It truly is all about location! Hamburg has the “it” that many people want. Known as the largest retail complex in Central Kentucky, Hamburg was founded over 100 years ago as a 2,000 acre horse farm. It now encompasses multiple office, retail and hospitality developments known as Hamburg Place, Sir Barton Place, War Admiral Place, Hamburg Pavillion, and several others. Big box stores and national chains in Hamburg include Costco, Lowes, Bed Bath & Beyond, Target and many more. In fact, Hamburg consists of over 2,000,000 sq ft of retail space, 160 acres of commercial and medical offices, and 1200 acres of residential development.

Hamburg is adjacent to I-75, four miles from New Circle Road, the ring road encircling Lexington, and six miles from downtown. The University of Kentucky is a convenient 15-minute drive from the shopping complex.
