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 Fishers,
the Hawthorn Hills neighborhood, has some outstanding things about the way it
looks and its way of life that are worth highlighting.

Brazilian and Yugoslav ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 1.0% of
this neighborhood's residents have Brazilian ancestry and 0.7% have Yugoslav ancestry.
Hawthorn Hills is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 2.4% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Hindi, which is the official language of India at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 97.9% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, some neighborhoods are made up of apartments. Some consist of row houses, and most - by far - consist of a mixture of housing types. But the Hawthorn Hills neighborhood stands out due to the total dominance of detached, single-family homes here. There are nearly no other types of residential real estate in the neighborhood. In fact, this neighborhood has a higher proportion of single-family homes in its real estate stock than 97.7% of all American neighborhoods.
Furthermore, this neighborhood has the distinction of having one of the lowest real estate vacancy rates of any neighborhood in America. With just 0.4% of the real estate vacant, this indicates an exceptionally strong demand for real estate in the Hawthorn Hills neighborhood, and/or an issue with creating enough supply for the demand. This could have the effect of increasing real estate prices, increasing supply to meet demand, or both.
Also of note, one way that the Hawthorn Hills neighborhood really stands out, is that it has more large 4, 5, or additional bedroom homes and real estate than 96.1% of the neighborhoods in America. When you walk or drive around this neighborhood, you'll instantly notice the size of the homes here which definitely makes a strong visual statement.
Finally, most neighborhoods are composed of a mixture of ages of homes, but the Hawthorn Hills 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, 80.2% of the residential real estate here was built in this one time period.
