A quaint, residential neighborhood full of historic charm
This small, completely residential town is loaded with charm and history. Nestled between Greenhills and Brentwood, residents have easy access to amenities and a quick commute from downtown.
Some of the first seeds of the Oak Hill we know today began when the railroad created Radnor Lake as a reservoir to supply water to their steam engines. The surrounding land is gorgeous and wooded and drew developers to create the residential area beside it. It remains today as one of the best perks of living in Oak Hill.
Oak Hill has a wide variety of real estate available. Along some streets, you’ll find large homes on sprawling lots. Other areas are more compact, with cozy bungalows that are just as popular as the mansions. Everywhere in this neighborhood is full of charisma and personality, giving you lots of incredible options to choose between.

The area simply stands out as a serene place to live amidst the bustle of the city.
Dining, Entertainment & Shopping
