The neighborhood of Mars Hill is part of the city of Indianapolis, Indiana.
Mars Hill is good for those who like quiet areas, as there are generally low levels of noise from traffic - although there are still several noisier areas, especially closer to Interstate 70, US Highway 40 or one of the railway lines. Parks aren't well-located, making it rather challenging to reach them. Still, there are a few public green spaces nearby for residents to discover, like Stout Field Park.
In Mars Hill, many of the dwellings are single detached homes, and small apartment buildings are also present in the housing stock. This area also has quite a good selection of unit sizes - it is quite easy to find properties ranging from lofts to four or more bedrooms. The population residing in this neighborhood is evenly split between owners and renters. Roughly 40% of homes in this part of the city were constructed pre-1960, while the majority of the remaining buildings were constructed in the 1960s and the 1980s.
Locals will find that no matter where their house is situated in this area, primary schools are close by. However, there are only a few high schools and consequently they can be a long walk away. With regards to food, a portion of house buyers in Mars Hill may be able to buy their groceries on foot, while others will have to use another means of transportation. There are also a few choices for those who care about restaurants in close proximity.
Driving is an excellent transportation option in this part of Indianapolis. It is a rather short car ride to the nearest highway, such as Interstate 70, from any location in Mars Hill, and it is very convenient to park. In contrast, this area is not a very pleasant part of Indianapolis for traveling by public transit. Thankfully, there are a few bus lines, and the closest bus stop is generally relatively close by. This part of the city is not very well-suited for traveling on foot since most daily needs are inconvenient to carry out by walking.
