Villa Hills, Kentucky
Villa Hills is a vibrant suburban community of 7,500 residents and was named the number one suburb by Cincy Magazine in 2014 and the seventh best suburb in the USA that same year. Its roots go back to 1785 when the area was settled by Robert McKay as payment for service in the Revolutionary War. The area was originally called Madonna Acres and Ludlow and for many years was unincorporated farmland. In the early 1960s, people started building homes and the area incorporated itself as a city.
Because of its convenient location and lovely terrain, this city has enjoyed a surge of growth in residential properties during recent years. The mixture of houses and condominiums comes in an appealing variety of traditional and contemporary styles. The price and size of Villa Hills properties is just as varied as the architecture. One estate type subdivision offers large luxurious homes up to the million dollar plus range. All neighborhoods are well maintained and attractive. Some offer stunning Ohio river views. Villa Hills residents are united in pride and enthusiasm for their lovely community.
