Station House Square Apartments
Resident · 2013 - 2014
My wife and I moved into Station House Apartments in August of 2013. After nearly a year of living here, we could not be more pleased with our experience. Station House is located in Old Louisville right off of W. Hill Street and S. 5th Street. If you are a University of Louisville student/employee (as I am), this is a perfect location. It is roughly a 5 minute drive or bike ride to campus and 10 to 15 minutes walking distance to campus. It is also located within 5 minutes from Downtown Louisville and near multiple TARC bus lines if you take pubic transportation. The entire apartment campus is surrounded by a high fence with resident-controlled access points that protects against non-residents from wondering onto the property. However, there are a number of pedestrian gates (key-pad controlled) and one main controlled entrance and separate exit for cars that maintains the community, but does not feel restricted in anyway. The parking lot is completely contained within the fence, which is a plus. There is also plenty of green space complete with pet waste centers (bags included) throughout the property that is perfect for walking my dog. Additionally, there are numerous sidewalk and flood lights to where there is not one dark spot on site for safe walking at night. The property is very well-maintained, the lawn is cut once per week, and there is nice landscaping (i.e., shrubs, bushes, ivy, mulch, etc.). Me and my wife have lived at a combined six different apartment complexes as we have been career academics, and this is by far the nicest and best managed/maintained apartment complex we have lived at. Upon moving in, our apartment was fully renovated with brand new carpet, paint, cabinets, and appliances. We live in a two-bedroom, two-bathroom apartment that has its own washer/dryer. Also, they are continuously updating/maintaining the property. During this summer (2014) alone, they are replacing all of the windows to energy efficient windows. As far as repairs, they are also the best apartment that I have lived at. While living here, we've had our central air conditioner unit go out. They replaced the unit with a brand new one without any hassle in less than a week. Another married couple I know that lives here has also had great experiences with maintenance requests/repairs. There is one full-time maintenance staff that is extremely friendly, well-versed in all repairs, and on top of it. Moreover, they do not try to skimp on repairs if need be. If the repair job requires more workers or advanced tools (usually unlikely), they will not hesitate to bring in outside contractors to address the issue at hand. For amenities, there are a number of nice features here: fitness center, swimming pool, club house, laundry facility for studio apartments, and a sauna. Most days, the fitness center is like having a private gym, which is very nice. By far my favorite ammenity though is that it is pet friendly with a small pet deposit and monthly fee ( approx. $20 dollars extra). My dog loves the green space and socializing with other dogs. They also allow cats, if you happen to be a cat person. In my experience with looking at other properties specifically in the Old Louisville area, most properties do not allow dogs. There are numerous pet waste stations throughout the campus with disposable waste bags that make it easy to dispose of pet waste and keep the community clean. The staff is also extremely friendly. There are three full-time employees (i.e., manager, office staff, and maintenance) that are extremely friendly, professional, know what they are doing. Additionally, there is a LMPD police officer that lives on-site and responds to any complaints/issues. Again, I have not experienced such a great combination of staff and living situation at any other place. On a final note, the community is mostly comprised of college students. However, the majority are upper-classmen and very well-behaved. Although the majority of residents are college students, there are also families with children and older residents that live here as well. If you are looking for a place to live in the Old Louisville area or Louisville in general, you will not be disappointed in giving Station House a look. We toured it and signed our lease in the same day, and I am sure you will do the same.
