Beaumont Area

(See bottom of page for listings in this area)

Beaumont [visit the homeowers’ association Web site] is one of the most popular areas of Lexington and is located in area 4.  More specifically, the neighborhood is in the southwest corner of Lexington just outside of New Circle and is bordered on the south by Harrodsburg Road and west by Man-O-War Blvd.  Well known for its popular school district with both elementary and high school being within walking distance it has a lot more to offer.  In fact, the neighborhood has one of the highest Walking Scores in Lexington with nearby library, grocery stores, park, walking trail, YMCA, and plenty restaurants.  It even boasts a wonderful amphitheater where one can enjoy the FREE summer Jazz in the Park series among other events.  It is also conveniently located within 3 miles of Bluegrass Airport.

However, the neighborhood doesn’t feel as ‘urban’ as the Chevy Chase part of town.  The neighborhood is further subdivided into eleven areas including Beaumont Reserve, Beaumont Sanctuary, Beaumont Gardens and others.  Homes range in age from new construction to ones built in the late 90’s. The average home sold in Beaumont is approximately $400K and 3,300 finished square feet. However, a buyer at any one point will find that options vary greatly from a handful in the mid $200s to a dozen in the over $1 million price point!

A brief over view of each section of Beaumont from highest price point to lowest is as follows:

The Sanctuary

This is the newest and most expensive area of Beaumont which includes streets such as Guilford, Barnwell, Linville and others.  Nearly all lots are ½ acre and a few are still available for your custom built home, but expect to pay an average of $160 per square foot.  Home sizes range between 3,800sf and 7,000sf with prices falling anywhere between $600K and $1M.

Beaumont Crossing

This is a newer section of Beaumont that was built between 2004 and 2009.  Although you may occasionally be lucky enough to find a home just under $500K, most are in the mid $500K to upper $600K price range and over 4000sf in size.  Expect custom all brick homes with lots of beautiful crown molding, built-ins, lost of hardwood or ceramic flooring, custom kitchens & baths with granite, covered back porches, backyards designed for outdoor entertaining and gorgeous landscaping!  This is a relatively small area of Beaumont comprising of only three exclusive streets; Raeford, Jeckyll, and Hemingway.  Homes that are on the even numbered on Hemingway Lane back to the beautiful walking trail, which is also bordered by Harrods Hill Park at its “elbow’.

The Reserve

This is arguably the most popular sections of Beaumont with more than half of its annual home sales specifically in The Reserve.  Here, you will find a large variety of custom homes built around the year 2000 ranging from $90/sf up to $180/sf.  Most offer many of the high-end features you’d expect in a custom home.  But be aware that the spectrum of construction styles & amenities is very broad and thus one home varies greatly from another.  As a result of these variances, you’ll find prices that range from low $400s to over $1million.  Size of homes also varies from 3000sf to over 8000sf and nearly every homes has a full basement.  Certain sections of The Reserve back to a beautiful horsefarm, greensapce, the neighborhood’s walking trail, or Rosa Parks Elementary.  The further back in the Reserve you get the higher the average price.


This is the original section of what is considered Beaumont with homes dating back to the late 90’s.  These homes are located on the south side of Beaumont Centre Lane and include streets such as Old Field, Malone, Rollingdale, Matilda and others nearby.  Some homes back to either the library, the green space, Harrods Hill Park, or the walking trail.  Prices are typically in the mid $300s to upper $400s with the average home offering well over 3000sf plus a basement.

Beaumont Garden & Beaumont Point

These two areas are often interchanged in names.  They include streets like Rollingdale, Kannapolis, Sebastian, and parts of Ridgecane Rd.  Homes here are priced between low $300s to mid $400s and offer between 2500 and 4200sf.  If you’re searching for a ranch, these are usually concentrated on Kannapolis and Ridgecane.  It is also worth noting that Kannapolis parallels the Beaumont walking trail so half of the homes on this street back up to it and one of the street backs to Harrods Hill Park.  Ridgecane, on the other hand, is a more busy street as it is one of the main thorough roads for the neighborhood.

Beaumont Enclave

This is the lowest priced area of Beaumont and is located on the east side of Rosa Parks Elementary.  Prices range from $200K to $250K and were built around the year 2000.  Most offer between 1700-2500sf with only a handful having a basement.  This area is a great alternative for those who can’t afford the $400K price tag but wish to be in the sought-after school district.  However, since this area of Beaumont is quite small there are very few homes that come on the market (only 4 in the past year!) and most sell in less than 3 months.

Beaumont Woods

Oldest & least expensive but also not in the same area as what is typically considered “Beaumont”.  This neighborhood is located around Beaumont Park and actually on the other side of New Circle (i.e. between New Circle and Alexandria Road).  It is not governed by the same HOA as rest of Beaumont.  The typical home here was built in the early to mid 90’s, offers 1500-2500sf, and is priced $175K to $200K.  Additionally, the elementary school is not the same as rest of Beaumont.  This is in the Garden Springs Elementary school district.  Middle and high school are same as for rest of Beaumont (Beaumont Middle and Dunbar High)
