I personally prefer east Carmel. East is east of Keystone. It's more established and the houses are older, more character. West Carmel is McMansion central.

It really just depends on what you like. If you prefer more established neighborhoods, east Carmel is where to head for the most part. If you are into newer homes, West Carmel has plenty of them. Just a personal choice IMHO.

I like West Carmel better mainly because you don't have to deal with Keystone traffic and it's easier to get to the main highways.. But East Carmel is okay, it's just older which is actually nice since it has more mature trees and has more character but traffic seems alot worse. With a town this size though, it's a toss up, you're talking about a 10 minute drive.

There is really more of an East, West, and Central Carmel now. Both east and west are newer homes (sprawl). East is a bit more affordable and more "cookie cutter" big homes (like the homes along Hazel Dell) and West side is has a bit more character and are more pricey (like the home in West Clay). Central Carmel has the older, most affordable homes.

I prefer Central, personally.

When we looked in Carmel years ago, I really liked the Brookshire neighborhoods. I have a good friend who lives in Foster Ridge ... nice neighborhood too.

Yes, I like Brookshire. Woodland Springs and Eden Estates, also. Older neighborhoods, just east of Keystone.

East Carmel has areas around 96-116th and Central/College that are older and rundown and not areas I would want to live.

West Carmel is newer, more expensive, preferable IMO. Also, Keystone is best to be avoided at rush hour.

Wow ... older and rundown? Are you KIDDING??? Older, yes .. but you are obviously not familiar enough with Carmel. You are probably referring to the Homeplace section, which is really demeaning and rude to say such things. No wonder Homeplace fought so hard not to be carmelized .. boo to you.

There is not so much new construction on the east side of Carmel, only Grandin Hall by Estridge which is very nice, and the semi-new Pulte neighborhood of Cherry Creek. Keystone is having a lot of construction now and traffic is worse than on Meridian. I live in Village of West Clay, and like the new construction and amenities there. There are homes in all price ranges in this neighborhood, from apartments and cottages to "McMansions". We visit the Clay Terrace shopping area frequently and love the grocery stores near there. There are lots of restaurants right on the Meridian and 146th intersection. I have not had many traffic delays on Meridian, not like when I lived in Fishers last year and had to drive on 69 to get in and out of Fishers.
