My thoughts – Peacock Hill has both attractive and ugly homes so when you drive around the neighborhood you feel a bit perplexed. Sooner or later the uglies will get renovated or dozed since this is a popular Ivy neighborhood. I also don’t like the fact that I-64 is so close. You will hear the trucks! I give the Peacock Hill neighborhood a 7 out of 10. The two tennis courts and pond (for the kids) are great amenities.
