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
Wealth makes most things in life easier, and a few things harder.
If you are wealthy and enjoy keeping up with the Jones', this neighborhood
will interest you. In fact, according to NeighborhoodScout's research,
the Scotland / Fox Hills neighborhood is wealthier than 99.8%

sheer amount of wealth concentrated here. Even in times of economic

of this neighborhood.
In addition, if knowledge is power, then imagine the cumulative power of one neighborhood
where many of the adults have earned an advanced degree, such as a Masters,
law degree, medical degree, or even a Ph.D. This is certainly the case in
the Scotland / Fox Hills neighborhood, where 51.0% have
earned an advanced degree. Compare that to the average neighborhood in
America, where just 8.4% of adults have completed a post-graduate degree,

Also, a majority of the adults in the Scotland / Fox Hills neighborhood
are wealthy and educated executives. They own stately

upper-level careers keep them busy, but allow them to live comfortably.

Finally, astoundingly, NeighborhoodScout's research reveals that this single
neighborhood has a higher concentration of married couples living here

school-aged children or not, married couples are the rule in the
Scotland / Fox Hills neighborhood. If you are a married couple, you may find many

you are single, you might not find many other singles here.
