Clemens Heights/Clemens Grove Subdivision in Lexington, KY is a small
community on the south end of Fayette County Kentucky. The neighborhood has a surprisingly high variety of homes styles throughout the neighborhood.

While this is an unusually long build out period, it has provided a varied and unique looking neighborhood.
Clemens Heights Subdivision is built on two sides of a hill. The top of the ridge has a road that runs across it and bisects the neighborhood, called Twain Ridge Dr. Clemens Drive is the road that serves as the main entry point to the neighborhood and intersects with Twain Ridge Dr. to form the nexus of the subdivision. It also has the most homes built on this main road. Clemens Heights can also be entered from Copper Run Subdivision by way of Calevares Dr. and through Wyndam Downs Subdivision by way of Twain Ridge Dr.
