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: Real Estate
Do you like a coastal setting? If so, this neighborhood may be to your liking.
The Hope Ranch neighborhood is on the ocean, a bay, or inlet.
Often such coastal places have amenities and recreational activities on the waterfront
that are attractive to residents and visitors alike.
In addition to being coastal, Hope Ranch is a very nautical neighborhood,
meaning that it is somewhat historic, walkable, densely populated and
on the water. This gives the neighborhood a very nautical feel,
with some seaside and shipping feel, which some may really enjoy the sights
and sounds of.
Notable & Unique: People
Of note is NeighborhoodScout's research finding that the
Hope Ranch neighborhood has some of the lowest rates of children
living in poverty of any neighborhood in the United States. In a nation
where approximately 1 in 4 children are living in poverty, the
Hope Ranch community truly stands out from the rest in this regard.
In addition, if you are planning to retire in California, this neighborhood
should be on your must-see list. For many reasons, Hope Ranch
may be considered a retiree's dream neighborhood. According to NeighborhoodScout's
exclusive analysis and metrics, it's peaceful and quiet, has above
average safety from crime compared to other neighborhoods in California,
while also offering a diverse range of housing options. This, along with
the vibrant mix of very educated seniors and other age groups who choose
to live here, makes the neighborhood more
retiree-friendly than 99.5% of neighborhoods in
CA. If a California retirement is in your future, this neighborhood
should be one of the places you visit.
In addition to being an excellent choice for active retirees, this
neighborhood is also a very good choice for highly educated executives and urban sophisticates.
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Did you know that the Hope Ranch neighborhood has more
British and Czechoslovakian ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 3.4% of
this neighborhood's residents have British ancestry and 0.6% have Czechoslovakian ancestry.
Hope Ranch is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 1.5% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak German at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 95.8% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation
If your dream is to be able to ride your bike to work each day, look no
further than this unique neighborhood. With 5.8% of residents in
the Hope Ranch neighborhood commuting on a bicycle to and
from work daily, this neighborhood has more bicycle commuters than
98.1% of all neighborhoods in the U.S., according to
NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis.
Also, a unique way of commuting is simply not to. And in the Hope Ranch
neighborhood, analysis shows that 12.1% of the residents work
from home, avoiding a commute altogether. This may not seem like a large number,
but it is a higher proportion of people working from home than is found in
96.4% of the neighborhoods in the United States.
One thing NeighborhoodScout's research reveals is that the wealthier and/or
more isolated the neighborhood, the greater the proportion of residents who
choose to work from home.
