Pleasant Hill Real Estate
About Pleasant Hill, Iowa
Located just on the eastern edge of Des Moines, Pleasant Hill has more than doubled its population size since 2000 to its current number at just over 9,000. The town’s intersecting highways, 163 and 65, make for ease in travel and commute to nearly any city in the metropolitan area.
A great location for those beginning a family or looking for a quiet neighborhood without giving up access to an urban lifestyle, Pleasant Hill is a community you won’t want to overlook. With two public, 18-hole golf courses (Copper Creek and Toad Valley Golf Courses), a movie theater, close proximity to the Iowa State Fairgrounds, restaurants and more, Pleasant Hill has a variety of entertainment options.
Most of Pleasant Hill is part of the Des Moines Public School District, while newer portions of the city fall in the Southeast Polk Community School District. The Des Moines district’s Pleasant Hill Elementary School, Southeast Polk’s Four Mile Elementary School and Southeast Polk Junior and Senior High Schools are all located in Pleasant Hill.
Top employers in the community entail transportation, warehousing, banking, finance and health care. Companies who offer the largest majority of jobs include C.R. England, Platinum Supplemental Insurance, Catholic Health Initiatives, Hy-Vee and Wells Fargo.
If you’re looking for a community close to the metropolitan area, but with amenities and entertainment to keep you occupied, Pleasant Hill may be the location for you. Contact the Colin Panzi Real Estate Team to learn more about homes available in Pleasant Hill.
