Do you like a coastal setting? If so, this neighborhood may be to your liking.

In addition, despite all of the residential real estate here in the William Hilton Pky / Queens Folly Rd neighborhood, NeighborhoodScout has discovered that much of it is vacant. In resort or second-home vacation areas, this naturally occurs because homes and apartments are seasonally occupied, and empty for a portion of the year. In non-vacation or resort areas, however, this can be an indicator of property abandonment or a weak real estate market. The vacancy rate here is 75.7%, which is higher than 99.8% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
Furthermore, most neighborhoods are composed of a mixture of ages of homes, but the William Hilton Pky / Queens Folly Rd 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, 87.3% of the residential real estate here was built in this one time period.
