Kievskoe highway is a large highway, which is one of the federal roads. It is part of the main route linking Moscow with Vnukovo Airport and continuing through Ukraine to Europe.
This direction has long become popular for the purchase of housing, therefore, at present, developers are actively developing territories along the Kiev highway. For buyers, several advantages are combined here at once: good transport accessibility (proximity to the capital, high-quality road surface) and quite democratic prices.
An excursion into history
The track got its name, of course, from the city of Kiev, because this is the main road leading from Moscow to Ukraine.
Initially, when this road was built in the 15th century, it connected Moscow with Kaluga and Borovsk. The route began from the walls of the Moscow Kremlin, crossed into Bolshaya Yakimanka Street, and then into Bolshaya Kaluzhskaya (now it is Leninsky Prospekt). Then it was called New Kaluga road or Novokaluzhsky tract.
For a long time, the Kiev direction was popular among Russian aristocrats. The area of the Kiev highway has always been famous for its picturesque places: huge forest lands, endless fields, numerous rivers and lakes. Ivan the Terrible and Boris Godunov loved to hunt in these parts, Peter I and Catherine II rested. It was in these places that many Russian noblemen, boyars and merchants built their rich estates. Some old estates have survived to this day, for example: Valuevo, Petrovskoe, Afineevo and some others.

This direction did not lose its attractiveness during the Soviet era. During the period of stagnation, it was considered the most prestigious area in the Moscow region. All the best places allocated here for building were occupied by the so-called “old-fashioned” settlements. The most famous among them are: Aprelevka, Selyatino, Krekshino and Peredelkino. Then the houses in these villages became the property of the party elite and the creative intelligentsia of the Soviet Union..
The track got its final appearance in 1976, when the road was completed. Currently, the length of the Kiev highway is about 509 kilometers.
With the collapse of the USSR, in the nineties, the Kievskoe highway lost some of its attractiveness. However, already now, thanks to the repair of the road surface and the complete reconstruction of the highway, this direction has regained its former popularity among Muscovites. Capital residents willingly purchase country houses in villages that are actively being built along the entire length of the Kiev highway.
Now in the vicinity of the Kiev highway many successful businessmen, cultural and scientific workers are buying housing. This is due primarily to the picturesque area, affordable prices and proximity to the capital.
Kievskoe highway is considered one of the most comfortable highways in the Moscow region. Good road surface, modern broadband highway, modern road junctions and overhead pedestrian crossings – all this makes travel to suburban villages very convenient.
However, the track is sometimes congested. The reason is that a large number of cars, including freight transit vehicles, move along this road from Moscow towards Vnukovo airport and the Moscow region..
In order to reduce the number of traffic jams, at the end of 2009 on the 38-kilometer section of the road from the Moscow Ring Road to the village. Rassudovo (Naro-Fominsk district), it was decided to open traffic-free traffic. Later, additional transport interchanges were also built in Aprelevka and at the intersection of the Kievskoe highway with the A107 highway. This allowed a bit to relieve the highway.
The territories in the vicinity of the Kiev highway are distinguished by a developed sports and recreation infrastructure. There are many rest houses, sanatoriums and sports complexes along the road, including: the Balabanovo rest house, the Bekasovo complex, the Zvezdny health resort, the Sokol health resort, the Melodiya sports palace (St. Aprelevka), the district sports center of the city of Moskovsky and many others.
It should also be noted that due to the towns of Aprelevka and Naro-Fominsk located near the cottage settlements, as well as the large settlements of Moskovsky, Vnukovo, Kokoshkino and Krekshino, residents of suburban settlements can use their social infrastructure. There is everything here: shops, clinics, utilities, kindergartens and schools, banks, cafes, restaurants and much more..
Advantages and disadvantages
Advantages of buying a country house in the Kiev direction
Currently, according to experts in the real estate market, Kievskoe highway is the leader in terms of investment in construction. This is due to an increase in demand for quality suburban housing. And here the Kiev direction has a number of undeniable advantages:
- In all respects, an advantageous geographical position. This is one of the most environmentally friendly areas, there are very picturesque places: coniferous and deciduous forests prevail, there are clean beautiful lakes and rivers.
- Good transport accessibility: wide modern highway with convenient transport interchanges.
- Rich infrastructure: there is everything you need for a comfortable life, active construction of new shopping and entertainment centers, as well as social infrastructure facilities.
After all transport problems were resolved, the Kievskoe highway began to rapidly catch up in popularity with the main leader of recent decades – the Novorizhskoe direction.
Disadvantages of buying real estate in the vicinity of Kiev highway
Despite all the obvious advantages of buying a cottage in villages along the Kiev highway, there is one significant disadvantage – the proximity of Vnukovo airport and the constant hum of aircraft.
Experts confirm that all cottage villages in the Kiev direction suffer from the roar of aircraft. All owners of suburban real estate in the area have to put up with this. Nevertheless, buyers do not experience any serious negativity because of this. Many experts point out that the proximity of the airport does not affect the liquidity of suburban real estate offered in the Kiev direction..
According to some experts, the overwhelming majority of the population of the near Moscow region has long been accustomed to such noise attacks. In addition, Vnukovo is the quietest capital airport. There are very few ordinary passenger flights. This airport is most often used for flights by the country’s leaders..
