"East Brentwood"

You might think of Knightsen as East Brentwood. In a lot of ways this feel like Iowa--lots of open farmland and not much else. But if you look at Census figures, you will see that in the last decade Knightsen has almost doubled in population--driven no doubt by the explosive growth of Brentwood and Oakley. This is a trend that I suspect will continue as developers look for new places where they can build more homes and apartments.

So far however, Knightsen remains pretty much a farming community with pretty good schools and not much else. You are close enough to Brentwood, however, that you can take advantage of their shopping and amenities so, at this point, it is a little bit like getting the best of both worlds: a quiet rural area but with the shopping and entertainment options of the ‘burbs.
  • Affrodable
  • Quiet and Safe
  • Close to Brentwood Amenities
  • Poor Public Transportation
  • Terrible For Commuting
  • Kind of Boring
