Living in Ft Knox area

We are Army and considering retiring to Ft Knox area (within 30 mile radius). Where are good towns or areas to look if we prefer open peaceful areas not around a city? What are the ups and downs of living in that area. Any tips or heads up would be wonderful. Thanks

Rineyville KY is about 8 miles west of Elizabethtown. Not city at all, but close enough. I can get to the Hospital in about 15 minutes or less depending on the type of emergency. It is in the same county as Elizabethtown but has a different zip code, its own school, fire dept, post office and at least a few other local businesses. Including a restauraunt, two country/convenience stores, Dollar General Store, Cecelian Bank and Community Park. It is approx. 15 minutes from Fort Knox Entrance. The prices of homes range from a $20,000-$40,000 cheap mobile home to much larger 6-8 bedroom homes that could be as high as $400,000 or even more.

I have a Double-Wide mobile home for sale in Rineyville. It sits on about 1/2 acre at the end of a quiet deadend street. It's in good condition. 3 bedrooms 2 baths with garden tub and stand up shower in the master bath. A wood-burning fireplace and friendly neighbors. My mom has had this place for about 5 years but is having health problems and needs to move closer to Dr. I sure would be interested in working with the right person to set up payment arrangements. She is in the Hospital right now so I may not get back to you right away but feel free to post any questions you may have and I will get back to you A.S.A.P.

I would like to sell this place for somewhere around 60,000. But the price is negotiable. Comment back if you are interested.
