Hills to the south, and Interstate 475 and Monroe Street to the north. Housing in Westgate

Linconshire, an area north of Central Avenue and West of Secor Road, is a network of curvilinear streets unique to Westgate. These homes sit on large lots with broad front yards and carefully trimmed lawns, giving the area a park like setting.
