When you see a neighborhood for the first time, the most important thing
is often the way it looks, like its homes and its setting. Some places look
the same, but they only reveal their true character after living in them for
a while because they contain a unique mix of occupational or cultural groups.
This neighborhood is very unique in some important ways, according to
NeighborhoodScout's exclusive exploration and analysis.
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Did you know that the Lake of the Pines neighborhood has more
Scottish and Finnish ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 5.9% of
this neighborhood's residents have Scottish ancestry and 1.5% have Finnish ancestry.
Lake of the Pines is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 0.4% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Hebrew at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 96.1% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Car Ownership
American households most often have a car, and regularly they have two or
three. But households in the Lake of the Pines neighborhood buck
Residents of this neighborhood must really love automobiles. NeighborhoodScout's
Analysis reveals that 24.3% of the households here have four, five,
or more cars. That is more cars per household than in 96.3% of
the neighborhoods in the nation.
Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation
In the Lake of the Pines neighborhood, many people's commute means
walking from the bedroom to the home office. NeighborhoodScout's analysis
found that 12.0% of residents worked from home. This may not
seem like a large number, but Scout's research shows that this is a higher
percentage of people working from home than 96.3% of the
neighborhoods in America. Often people who work from home are engaged in
the creative or technological economy, such as is found in areas around Boston,
and in Silicon Valley. Other times, people may be engaged in other businesses
like trading stocks from home, or running a small beauty salon.
Notable & Unique: People

Lake of the Pines neighborhood is an excellent choice for you to consider

NeighborhoodScout as among the top 8.8% of retiree-friendly
neighborhoods in California, combining peace and quiet, safety from
crime, and offering diverse housing options from which retirees can

this neighborhood as a top-notch place to consider if you are thinking
of or planning to retire in California.
In addition to being an excellent choice for active retirees, this
neighborhood is also a very good choice for families with school-aged children.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, most neighborhoods are composed of a mixture of ages of homes, but the Lake of the Pines stands out as rather unique in having nearly all of its residential real estate built in one time period, namely between 1970 and 1999, generally considered to be established, but not old housing. What you'll sense when you look around or drive the streets of this neighborhood is that many of the residences look the same because of this similarity of age. In fact, 80.2% of the residential real estate here was built in this one time period.
