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
If you come to know the people here, you will recognize that you're
in the company of one of the wealthiest communities in the nation. In
fact, a mere 3.1% of America's neighborhoods are wealthier than the
Prestbury neighborhood. Real estate here is exceedingly
well-maintained, and similarly, tends to maintain its value over time.
The cars driven are mostly luxury brands like Mercedes, Audi, BMW, and
Lexus. If the public schools aren't up to snuff, the residents of this
neighborhood preferentially send their children to private preparatory
schools. Vacation to Disney? Yes, but equally popular are summers in Europe.
As one would expect in a considerably wealthy neighborhood such as this,
Prestbury also has one of the lowest ratings of child
poverty in the nation.
In addition, priests and therapists would like to think they know the secrets to a
truly successful marriage, but according to NeighborhoodScout's research,
the folks of the Prestbury neighborhood may actually hold
the key. 73.2% of its residents are married, which is a higher
percentage than is found in 99.4% of the neighborhoods
Also, the Prestbury neighborhood is considered a solid choice
for executive lifestyles. NeighborhoodScout's analysis ranks it as
better than 93.0% of Illinois neighborhoods
for executive living, based on the wealthy, educated professionals,
executives, and managers who choose to reside here, the spacious homes
that are prominent features of the real estate in the neighborhood,
and the high real estate appreciation rates found here relative to
other neighborhoods in the state.
In addition to being an excellent choice for highly educated executives, this
neighborhood is also a very good choice for urban sophisticates and families with school-aged children.
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Did you know that the Prestbury neighborhood has more
Czechoslovakian and Austrian ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 1.6% of
this neighborhood's residents have Czechoslovakian ancestry and 1.9% have Austrian ancestry.
Prestbury is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 2.7% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak French at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 97.4% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, if you like the look and ambience of new homes and newly built neighborhoods, you will love the Prestbury neighborhood. A whopping 65.8% of the homes and other residential real estate here were built after 1999, which is a higher proportion of new homes then you will find in 98.0% of the neighborhoods in the U.S. Everything here just feels new.
Furthermore, real estate in the Prestbury neighborhood is almost exclusively owner-occupied. NeighborhoodScout's analysis reveals that this neighborhood has a higher rate of owner-occupied housing than is found in 96.6% of U.S. neighborhoods. If you are seeking to rent, this neighborhood may not have many options, but high rates of ownership often indicate stability in a neighborhood.
