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: Diversity
Did you know that the Harding Pike / Harpeth Trace Dr neighborhood has more
Scots-Irish and English ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 6.8% of
this neighborhood's residents have Scots-Irish ancestry and 25.4% have English ancestry.
Harding Pike / Harpeth Trace Dr is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 1.5% 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 97.9% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: People
One of the most interesting things about the Harding Pike / Harpeth Trace Dr
neighborhood is that it has a greater concentration of residents who live
alone than most all neighborhoods in America. With 53.8% of the
households here made up of people living alone, NeighborhoodScout's research
reveals that this is a larger proportion of people living alone than in
98.2% of the neighborhoods in America.
In addition, if you're nearing retirement age, or in retirement, the
Harding Pike / Harpeth Trace Dr neighborhood is an excellent choice for you to consider
for top-quality retirement living. This neighborhood is rated by
NeighborhoodScout as among the top 6.9% of retiree-friendly
neighborhoods in Tennessee, combining peace and quiet, safety from
crime, and offering diverse housing options from which retirees can
choose. Maybe it's because of these amenities that a large proportion
of the residents here are college educated seniors, mixed with other
age groups. For these and other reasons, NeighborhoodScout identifies
this neighborhood as a top-notch place to consider if you are thinking
of or planning to retire in Tennessee.
Notable & Unique: Migration / Stability
The freedom of moving to new places versus the comfort of home. How much
and how often people move not only can create diverse and worldly neighborhoods,
but simultaneously it can produce a loss of intimacy with one's surroundings
and a lack of connectedness to one's neighbors. NeighborhoodScout's exclusive
research has identified this neighborhood as unique with regard to the
transience of its populace.
In the Harding Pike / Harpeth Trace Dr neighborhood, a greater proportion of
the residents living here today did not live here five years ago than is
found in 96.2% of U.S. Neighborhoods. This neighborhood,
more than almost any other in America, has new residents from other areas.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, many people dream of living along a street lined with row houses or other attached homes. Such places do often have an abundance of charm. If you are one of these people, the Harding Pike / Harpeth Trace Dr neighborhood could be your paradise. With 29.1% of the homes and real estate here classified as rowhouses or other attached homes, this neighborhood brims with opportunity to find the right place for you. Only 3.5% of U.S. neighborhoods have more row houses than this neighborhood, making it one of the most interesting things about this special neighborhood.
Furthermore, most neighborhoods are composed of a mixture of ages of homes, but the Harding Pike / Harpeth Trace Dr 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, 85.3% of the residential real estate here was built in this one time period.
