Clifton Heights is located within a triangle: Hwy 44 to the north, Hampton to the east, Arsenal to the south.

Neighborhood Feel

Clifton Heights has a distinctively different feel from many of the other City neighborhoods in part due to the topography. Clifton Heights is hillier than many areas of the city. In addition to that, the architecture of the neighborhood is more Victorian, there is less brick throughout and the lots are larger. Despite being bordered some pretty busy streets, Clifton Heights is relatively quiet. The only major street that cuts through the neighborhood is Southwest, so there isn’t a lot of outside traffic. At the center of the neighborhood is Clifton Park and Lake. This area is encircle by Simpson Ave which is features some of the most beautiful homes in the city. Clifton Heights is most residential so there’s not a lot commercial activity going on but there are a couple a good restaurants within walking distance: Bartolino’s Osteria and Chris’ Pancake House

Market Snapshot

Last year within the boundaries of the neighborhood a total of 64 single family homes sold. Values of the sold homes ranged between $15,000 to $450,000 with the highest concentration of sold homes priced between $100,000-$160,000. The median sale price for the area was $121,500 and the average days on market was 78. In he current real estate market only 78 days on market is a sign of a sought after location. Note: the median and average prices seemed a little low to me so I sorted them by number of bedrooms. Viewed from this angle, you can see that 43 of the 64 homes had only 2 bedrooms, 17 homes had 3 bedrooms and only 4 had 4+ bedrooms. The majority of the inventory that sold last year was on the smaller side.
