Developer R.J. Thieneman purchased the property that is now Saratoga Woods from Cumberland Federal Savings Bank in January 1993. Development began soon after and construction of homes began in late 1993. In 1994 Saratoga Woods was one of the featured neighborhoods for Homearama, which annually showcases Louisville’s premiere Builders of fine homes.
At the start of the development of Saratoga Woods lots sold for as low as $33,900, with home prices in the $140,000 to $195,000 range. Although prices have changed over the years, one of the major selling features of the Saratoga Woods development remains true today, existing natural landscape with many mature trees.
Development of The Estates of Saratoga Woods began in the late 1990’s in two sections. The Estates section featured slightly larger lots and homes. Again, natural features were highlighted allowing fall-away lots with plenty of mature trees. When section two of the Estates was completed in the early 2000’s an additional 130 home sites were added to the already developed four sections of Saratoga Woods, for a total of 661 homes today.
Saratoga Woods remains an attractive and desirable place to call home with homes now ranging in price from the low $200s up to the $370s. Its convenience, safety, location, and natural features remain as desirable today as when first developed 22 years ago.
