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: Modes of Transportation
A unique way of commuting is simply not to. And in the Winfield / Rockdale
neighborhood, analysis shows that 18.2% 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
99.2% 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.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
Unpopulated, and rural, the Winfield / Rockdale neighborhood is one of the least crowded neighborhoods in all of America. If you like open space, no traffic, and lots of room, this neighborhood may be just what you are looking for. According to NeighborhoodScout's leading research, this neighborhood is less densely populated than 97.6% of the neighborhoods in America. One of the notable things about Winfield / Rockdale is that it is one of the quietest neighborhoods in America, according to NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis and quantitative rating of quietness. When you are here, you will find it to be very quiet. If quiet and peaceful are your cup of tea, you may have found a great place for you.
In addition, despite all of the residential real estate here in the Winfield / Rockdale neighborhood, NeighborhoodScout has discovered that much of it is vacant. In resort or second-home vacation areas, this naturally occurs because homes and apartments are seasonally occupied, and empty for a portion of the year. In non-vacation or resort areas, however, this can be an indicator of property abandonment or a weak real estate market. The vacancy rate here is 33.4%, which is higher than 95.5% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: People
If you are planning to retire in Colorado, this neighborhood

exclusive analysis and metrics, it's peaceful and quiet, has above
average safety from crime compared to other neighborhoods in Colorado,
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 99.0% of neighborhoods in
CO. If a Colorado retirement is in your future, this neighborhood
should be one of the places you visit.
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Did you know that the Winfield / Rockdale neighborhood has more
Portuguese and Swiss ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 3.5% of
this neighborhood's residents have Portuguese ancestry and 2.0% have Swiss ancestry.
Notable & Unique: Length of Commute
Whether walking, biking, riding, or driving, the length of one's commute
is an important factor for one's quality of life. The Winfield / Rockdale
neighborhood stands out for its commute length, according to NeighborhoodScout's
Residents of the Winfield / Rockdale neighborhood have the pleasure
of having one of the shortest commutes to work of any neighborhood in
America. 63.2% of the residents have a commute time from
home to work (one way) of less than fifteen minutes. This is a higher
proportion of residents enjoying a short trip to work than NeighborhoodScout
found in 96.5% of U.S. neighborhoods. Less time commuting
means more time for other things in life.
