This week Neighborhood of the Week heads up north to revisit two grand streets that make up one quaint little neighborhood: Fairmont and Emoriland Boulevards.
The area around Fairmont and Emoriland Boulevards was first developed in the 1920s, but the neighborhood has many homes built in the 30s, 40s, and 50s. Architectural styles in the neighborhood include Tudor, Spanish Eclectic, and Colonial Revival, as well as many cottage style homes.
Both boulevards are wide and tree-lined, but Emoriland Blvd features a large median that runs the length of the main part of the street. Side streets connect the two boulevards and with sidewalks throughout the neighborhood, Fairmont & Emoriland is a very walkable neighborhood.
The Fairmont & Emoriland area is easily accessible via I-40 (when it’s not closed down for construction), I-640, and I-275. It’s also a great place for anyone looking for a quick commute to downtown or the UT campus.
So if you’re looking for a affordable, historic home in an quaint, walkable neighborhood with easy access to interstates, UT and downtown, the Fairmont & Emoriland area might be right up your alley.
Special thanks to AAKT’s resident photographer, Robert Stockdale, for the great shots of Fairmont & Emoriland. If you would like to learn more about Robert’s work, please visit his website.
