Fort Knox is home to Knox Hills LLC, the military family housing community on post. The homes are a mix of single-family and duplex homes, in one and two story designs, each offering a spacious floor plan created for family togetherness.
The Department of the Army recently partnered with real estate developer, Actus Lend Lease, to begin a $285 million community development for Fort Knox families. As part of the development, more than 2,500 homes will be constructed or renovated by 2015.
Knox Hills’ homes are situated within welcoming communities, highlighting pristine neighborhoods, community centers, attractive open green spaces and hiking and biking trails that allow for resident interaction. Home sizes range from two to five bedrooms and come equipped with major appliances, washer and dryer hookups and central air conditioning.
The Knox Hills pet policy is available for review on its website. Pets must be registered with the Fort Knox Veterinary Center.
