Many things matter about a neighborhood, but the first thing most people notice
is the way a neighborhood looks and its particular character. For example, one
might notice whether the buildings all date from a certain time period or whether
shop signs are in multiple languages. This particular neighborhood in Lady Lake,
the Conant neighborhood, has some outstanding things about the way it
looks and its way of life that are worth highlighting.

In a nation where 1 out of every 4 children lives in poverty, the
Conant neighborhood stands out as being ranked among
the lowest 0.1% of neighborhoods affected by this global
In addition, one of the most interesting things about the Conant
neighborhood is that it has a greater concentration of residents who live
alone than most all neighborhoods in America. With 48.6% of the
households here made up of people living alone, NeighborhoodScout's research
reveals that this is a larger proportion of people living alone than in
96.4% of the neighborhoods in America.

Conant neighborhood is an excellent choice for you to consider
for top-quality retirement living. This neighborhood is rated by
NeighborhoodScout as among the top 9.1% of retiree-friendly
neighborhoods in Florida, combining peace and quiet, safety from
crime, and offering diverse housing options from which retirees can
choose. Maybe it's because of these amenities that a large proportion
of the residents here are college educated seniors, mixed with other
age groups. For these and other reasons, NeighborhoodScout identifies
this neighborhood as a top-notch place to consider if you are thinking
of or planning to retire in Florida.
Notable & Unique: Occupations
There are more people living in the Conant neighborhood
employed as sales and service workers (47.5%) than almost any neighborhood
in the country. From fast-food service workers to major sales accounts,
sales and service workers make up the largest proportion of our national
employment picture. But despite that size and importance nationally, this
neighborhood still stands out as unique due to the dominance of people
living here who work in such occupations.
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Did you know that the Conant neighborhood has more
Welsh and Portuguese ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 2.9% of
this neighborhood's residents have Welsh ancestry and 2.8% have Portuguese ancestry.
Conant is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 1.1% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Polish at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 96.4% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, the Conant neighborhood stands out for having the majority of its residential real estate made up of mobile homes. In fact, 64.7% of the occupied real estate here are mobile homes, which is a greater proportion than is found in 99.8% of the neighborhoods in the U.S. If you like mobile homes, this might be a great neighborhood in which to look for real estate.
Furthermore, the Conant neighborhood is very unique in that it has one of the highest proportions of one, two, or no bedroom real estate of any neighborhood in America. Most neighborhoods have a mixture of home or apartment sizes from small to large, but here the concentration of studios and other small living spaces is at near-record heights. With 90.7% of the real estate here of this small size, this most assuredly is a notable feature that makes this neighborhood unique, along with just a handful of other neighborhoods in the U.S. that share this characteristic.
Also of note, most neighborhoods are composed of a mixture of ages of homes, but the Conant 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, 91.1% of the residential real estate here was built in this one time period.
