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: People

In addition, if you're nearing retirement age, or in retirement, the

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

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: Diversity
Did you know that the County Barn Rd / Charlemagne Blvd neighborhood has more
Austrian and Croatian ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 2.1% of
this neighborhood's residents have Austrian ancestry and 1.4% have Croatian ancestry.
County Barn Rd / Charlemagne Blvd is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 1.4% 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 97.2% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Occupations
From major sales accounts to fast-food workers, sales and service employees
are often the backbone of the local economy. In the County Barn Rd / Charlemagne Blvd
neighborhood, they truly stand out. NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis
identifies this neighborhood as having a higher percentage of sales and
service workers than 99.0% of all American neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, most neighborhoods are composed of a mixture of ages of homes, but the County Barn Rd / Charlemagne Blvd 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, 94.3% of the residential real estate here was built in this one time period.
Furthermore, despite all of the residential real estate here in the County Barn Rd / Charlemagne Blvd 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 46.2%, which is higher than 98.2% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
Also of note, the County Barn Rd / Charlemagne Blvd 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 88.2% 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.
