Lakewood is a well established and highly attractive Lexington neighborhood that does a great job of marrying urban convenience with rural sensibilities.

The community takes up a prized position in the southwest quadrant of the city of Lexington, just 5 miles from the downtown core. This position ensures that locals residents maintain fantastic access to all the best Lexington has to offer while also having the ability to escape to their own serene, semi-rural sanctuaries.

Lakewood is a larger neighborhood, containing just over 100 properties in total. Despite its size, Lakewood has managed to stay quite exclusive. Made up of mainly larger, palatial family homes on larger lots, these are the types of properties that home buyers hang on to.

As a result, Lakewood homes don’t often come on the market and when they do, they tend to get snapped up pretty quick.
