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 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 4.6% of America's neighborhoods are wealthier than the
Silver Creek Rd / Westwood Rd 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.
As one would expect in a considerably wealthy neighborhood such as this,
Silver Creek Rd / Westwood Rd also has one of the lowest ratings of child
poverty in the nation.
In addition, if you're planning where to retire, the Silver Creek Rd / Westwood Rd neighborhood in
Park City is a great option to consider. According to NeighborhoodScout's
exclusive retirement dream area analysis, it's peaceful and quiet, has
above average safety ratings compared to other neighborhoods in UT,
offers a wide range of housing options, and has already attracted an
enviable mix of college educated seniors. This neighborhood ranks as better
for retirement living than 88.8% of the neighborhoods
in Utah. If you are considering retiring to Utah, this
is a good neighborhood to look at.
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Did you know that the Silver Creek Rd / Westwood Rd neighborhood has more
Scottish and Slovak ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 6.1% of
this neighborhood's residents have Scottish ancestry and 1.7% have Slovak ancestry.
Silver Creek Rd / Westwood Rd is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 3.6% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Italian at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 99.2% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation
In the Silver Creek Rd / Westwood Rd neighborhood, many people's commute means
walking from the bedroom to the home office. NeighborhoodScout's analysis
found that 14.3% of residents worked from home. This may not
seem like a large number, but Scout's research shows that this is a higher
percentage of people working from home than 98.0% of the
neighborhoods in America. Often people who work from home are engaged in
the creative or technological economy, such as is found in areas around Boston,
and in Silicon Valley. Other times, people may be engaged in other businesses
like trading stocks from home, or running a small beauty salon.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, despite all of the residential real estate here in the Silver Creek Rd / Westwood 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 44.7%, which is higher than 98.0% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
