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: Occupations
The government often provides some of the more stable jobs in the economy.
From local, to state, to federal government workers, the government can
also be a major employer. What NeighborhoodScout's analysis revealed, is
that the Kings Crest Dr / Wind Ridge Dr neighborhood in particular stands out
when compared nationally for the proportion of its working residents who
are employed by the government. At 25.3% of its workforce, this
neighborhood has a greater concentration of government workers than
99.5% of U.S. neighborhoods.
Furthermore, with 2.8% of employed workers living in the
Kings Crest Dr / Wind Ridge Dr neighborhood active in the military, this neighborhood has
the distinction of having a higher proportion of people in the military
than 98.0% of American neighborhoods. This is a major
shaper of the neighborhood's culture and character.
Notable & Unique: People
Single parenting is hard. But you don't have to tell the
Kings Crest Dr / Wind Ridge Dr neighborhood about it; they already know. 21.2%
of this neighborhood's households are run by single mothers, which is a
higher concentration than NeighborhoodScout found in 96.9%
of American neighborhoods. Further NeighborhoodScout research showed strong
statistical correlations among high rates of children living in single
parent households, and neighborhood crime, particularly violent crime,
neighborhood poverty, and, importantly, the percentage of low weight births
and rates of infant mortality.
In addition, according to NeighborhoodScout's research, Kings Crest Dr / Wind Ridge Dr is
better suited for first-time home buyers than 88.2%
of neighborhoods in the state. Most homes here are priced below the
state's median house value, yet maintain comparably good appreciation
rates over the last decade relative to other neighborhoods in Virginia.
Along with an exclusive multi-metric measure of neighborhood quality
developed by NeighborhoodScout that scores high here in this neighborhood,
this means that buying into the neighborhood
is not only an accessible option but considered a decent first time
home buyer choice for building equity in your first home, while being
in a quality neighborhood

South American ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 4.5% of
this neighborhood's residents have South American ancestry.
Kings Crest Dr / Wind Ridge Dr is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 1.9% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak African languages at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 95.3% of the neighborhoods in America.
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.
