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're a regular supporter of the arts and enjoy outings to the
theatre, weekend boutique-ing, or even a finely aged wine with dinner,
than you're in good company with the people of the Springfield Ave / West End Pl
neighborhood. This neighborhood is uniquely immersed with more "urban
sophisticates" than 99.7% of neighborhoods across the
country. The people here truly stand out as a class among their own.
They are an exclusive community characterized by refined tastes,
cultural inclinations, and the means to live well. Urban sophisticates
live a big city lifestyle, whether or not they live in or near a big
city. They are educated executives or managers by week, and serial
patrons of the arts by weekend. If this lifestyle pertains to you,
than you'll certainly feel right at home in the Springfield Ave / West End Pl
In addition to being an excellent choice for urban sophisticates, this
neighborhood is also a very good choice for families with school-aged children, highly educated executives and active retirees.
In addition, astoundingly, NeighborhoodScout's research reveals that this single
neighborhood has a higher concentration of married couples living here
than 98.8% of all U.S. neighborhoods. Whether they have
school-aged children or not, married couples are the rule in the
Springfield Ave / West End Pl neighborhood. If you are a married couple, you may find many
people here with a similar lifestyle, and perhaps common interests. But if
you are single, you might not find many other singles here.
Also, 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 1.6% of America's neighborhoods are wealthier than the
Springfield Ave / West End Pl 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.
Notable & Unique: Diversity

Irish and Austrian ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 32.3% of
this neighborhood's residents have Irish ancestry and 1.8% have Austrian ancestry.
Springfield Ave / West End Pl is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 1.7% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Portuguese at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 97.2% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, real estate in the Springfield Ave / West End Pl 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 98.7% of U.S. neighborhoods.

With a real estate vacancy rate of only 1.2%, the Springfield Ave / West End Pl neighborhood has a lower vacancy rate than 95.1% of U.S. neighborhoods, a very elite group. Such a low vacancy rate may indicate very strong real estate demand in the neighborhood combined with some impediments to increasing supply, such as zoning or existing density of development, among other potential reasons.
Furthermore, 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 Springfield Ave / West End Pl 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 97.8% of all American neighborhoods.
Also of note, one way that the Springfield Ave / West End Pl neighborhood really stands out, is that it has more large 4, 5, or additional bedroom homes and real estate than 95.3% of the neighborhoods in America.
