Where to Live
Sylvan Hills is mostly residential, with several historic homes located off of Sylvan Road. Fortunately, the demolition process of older homes has come to a halt, and newly constructed and renovated properties have started to conform to the character of the neighborhood’s original architecture. Bungalows and restored craftsman-style homes are common here, and residents take advantage of the two neighborhood parks in the northern section of Sylvan Hills.
Sylvan Hills is known for its affordability, but with many redevelopments in the neighborhood, property values are expected to rise. Still, prospective buyers are attracted to the investment opportunity that Sylvan Hills provides, along with some appealing amenities in the area, like the Westside Beltline Trail.
