Shawnee is a neighborhood within Louisville, Kentucky.
The character of Shawnee is exemplified by its calm atmosphere. It is very easy to get to public green spaces from a large number of locations within the neighborhood, since there are a few of them nearby for residents to enjoy and the majority of properties for sale have a park a short walk away. Most areas in this area are reasonably quiet, as there are usually low levels of noise from traffic - although that is not the case close to Interstate 264 or US Highway 150.
Most housing in Shawnee was constructed prior to the 1960s, during its most significant housing boom. In this part of the city, the majority of the dwellings are single detached homes, and the remaining properties are mainly small apartment buildings. The proportions of renters and home owners are about even. This neighborhood has a good variety of housing sizes, ranging from lofts to four or more bedrooms.
A supermarket is generally reachable within a very short walk from most homes for sale in Shawnee. There are also a few opportunities for those who care about restaurants in close proximity. In terms of education, it is a reasonably short walk to access both primary and secondary schools from most houses for sale in this part of the city.
Driving is a great mode of transportation in Shawnee. It is convenient to park, and most homes for sale are a short car ride from the nearest highway, such as Interstate 264. However, the public transit service in Shawnee is not very frequent. Thankfully, residents benefit from a few bus lines, and bus stops are not very far away from most houses. Shawnee is not particularly conducive to traveling on foot as few daily needs can be met without the use of a car.
