The Bonnycastle Homestead area is a part of Louisville's Highlands, between Bardstown Road and Cherokee Park, and between Eastern Parkway and Speed Avenue. Built up over 50 years ago, and experiencing some decline in the 1950's and 1960's, the neighborhood is now alive and prospering. Residents are happy with their tree- shaded streets, their graceful older homes, their closeness to the cultural offerings of downtown, and the friendly atmosphere. The neighborhood is vitalized by a diversity of ages and occupations. In recent years, this has become one of the most desirable neighborhoods in Louisville; property values are rising, and houses sell rapidly.
The Bonnycastle neighborhood boundaries are defined by Bardstown Road, Eastern Parkway, Cherokee Road, and Speed Avenue, as pictured in brown region of map below:
