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.

Romanian and Hungarian ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 1.8% of
this neighborhood's residents have Romanian ancestry and 3.5% have Hungarian ancestry.
White Meadow Lake is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 1.4% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Gujarati, which is native to the Indian state of Gujarat, at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 97.7% of the neighborhoods in America.

well-maintained, and similarly, tends to maintain its value over time.
The cars driven are mostly luxury brands like Mercedes, Audi, BMW, and

neighborhood preferentially send their children to private preparatory
schools. Vacation to Disney? Yes, but equally popular are summers in Europe.
In addition, according to NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis, White Meadow Lake

sense of community. In addition, the high number of college-educated parents
influences the academic success of the local schools. Overall, you will

White Meadow Lake neighborhood.
In addition to being an excellent choice for families with school-aged children, this
neighborhood is also a very good choice for urban sophisticates and highly educated executives.
Notable & Unique: Migration / Stability
Do you like to be surrounded by people from all over the country or world,
with different perspectives and life experiences? Or do you instead prefer
to be in a neighborhood where most residents have lived there for a long
time, creating a sense of cohesiveness? NeighborhoodScout's analysis
reveals that this neighborhood stands out among American neighborhoods
for the uniqueness of the mobility of its residents.
More residents of the White Meadow Lake neighborhood live here
today that also were living in this same neighborhood five years ago
than is found in 97.1% of U.S. neighborhoods. This neighborhood
is really made up of people who know each other, don't move often, and
have lived here in this very neighborhood for quite a while.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, real estate in the White Meadow Lake 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 97.9% 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.
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 White Meadow Lake 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 96.1% of all American neighborhoods.
