St. Matthews

Welcome to St. Matthews

A classic, parkside community full of grand homes and an even grander neighborhood vibe

As the happy medium between remote, out-of-town suburb and crowded urban neighborhood, St. Matthews strikes that perfect balance of being a tranquil oasis while still close to it all. Downtown is just 15 minutes from the heart of the community, and Louisville International Airport is even less—not bad for a spot that very much has its own thing going on. 

Homes in St. Matthews are diverse. Cape Cods mingle with Craftsmen, which mingle with Colonials, which mingle with more contemporary builds. Consider them the four pillars of St. Matthews' housing. One thing they do have in common is space—and plenty of it. Lots are large and so are the homes on them. 

Considering this part of town is trending upwards, you will pay a premium for many of the homes, but it will be worth it. The St. Matthews neighborhoods of Indian Hills (often referred to as simply "The Hills”) that are next door to Louisville Country Club and Norbourne Estates offer the biggest return on your home buying investment.

What to Love

  • Perfect location at the outer edge of urban Louisville
  • Lots of green space on which to roam
  • Magnificent homes on equally magnificent lots
  • Close to great schools
  • Modern comfort and convenience


St. Matthews features a number of fabulous bars and restaurants, including Gerstles- St. Matthews' preferred live music joint, and the innovative, upscale cuisine of Mesh. Just a few doors down is the Vietnamese-inspired District 6. If you are craving something sweet, you have to grab a slice of pie or a scoop of ice cream from the Homeade Ice Cream and Pie Kitchen.

Things to Do

The St. Matthews Street Festival is one of the area's largest annual events and includes live music, a kid zone, and plenty of food. For something more historic, tour Whitehall Mansion and Historic Gardens. The estate, which was originally built in 1855 and expanded throughout its history, is a classic example of Southern Greek Revival.

Seneca Park is a 531-acre gem that borders St. Matthews to the west and features a massive list of amenities, including biking, hiking, and equestrian trails, sports fields and picnic grounds, and an 18-hole golf course.

Neighborhood churches dot the landscape across St. Matthews and play a crucial role in the neighborly vibe prevalent throughout the community. The Holy Spirit Catholic Church and Our Lady of Lourdes host annual fish fry events and picnics during lent and maintain a regular outreach throughout the year.
