We are interested in a few homes in a few different neighborhoods and are asking anyone to give their opinion on the areas we are looking at. First one is in Starmount. Are there certain parts of that neighborhood that are not recommended? Next one is Madison Park and the last is Olde Providence. I just love the look of the older neighborhoods with the all the trees and larger lots. If anyone can give me some pros and cons of these neighborhoods I would appreciate it. Thank you .

Starmount-lots of threads on here about this one. I have several friends that live in this neighborhood. They all purchased homes to update or remodel and stayed closer to Park Road in the neighborhood.

Madison Park-I personally lived there for about 4 years. Loved it, everything about it. A lot of friends I grew up with live in these neighborhoods due to the location.

Olde Providence-about half of the high school I attended (myers park) lived here..seriously. It continues to be a desirable place to be, tucked away just enough but not far from everything you could need. About half of the homes are updated and the other half are still in original condition. Lots of split levels but a mix of other designs as well.

So the areas off of South Blvd in Starmount are not as desirable?

I would try to stay as far away from South Boulevard as possible.

Parts of it. It's not the most desirable road to live along, unless you are close to uptown in South End.

Trust me, you want to go with Olde Providence

So the streets off South Blvd from Sedgefield Park all the way down to Montclaire are not recommended? Wow there are some nice older remodeled homes for good prices right now. Most of them lie between South Blvd and Park Rd, but south of Tyvola. That's too bad..

Well, I didn't say Sedgefield and Montclaire are not recommended - in fact, some yuppies working uptown find them very convenient places to live. There are tons of homes in Monclaire and Madison Park being bought up because of their proximity to the light rail. I just said, Olde Providence is the most desirable - you get bigger homes for the same amount of money, and better schools. I would not recommend any neighborhoods along South from about Tyvola to I485.
