Alpine real estate guide & listings for sale
There is a broad selection of green spaces in Alpine. Parks, like Peter Hallman Ballyard and Sportsplex and Laurentian Trail, are especially well-distributed and there are a few of them close by for residents to check out, making it very easy to access them from a large number of locations within the neighbourhood. Finally, as there are very few people out and about on the streets, this area is relatively quiet.
Driving is an excellent mode of transportation in Alpine. Nearby highways, such as Highway 7, are especially easy to reach from any home in this part of Kitchener, and parking is generally easy. On the other hand, public transit riders may find few options in this area by reason of the low service level. Thankfully, there are a few bus lines traversing the neighbourhood, and most properties are very close to a bus stop. This area is not particularly convenient for walking as few daily errands can be run on foot. On the other hand, the bike is a reasonably good mode of transportation in Alpine as the bicycling infrastructure is quite well-developed.
Homeowners occupy roughly 60% of the properties in the neighbourhood while the remainder are rented. In this part of Kitchener, roughly 30% of dwellings are small apartment buildings, and the rest are mainly large apartment buildings, single detached homes, and townhouses. A majority of the housing growth in this part of the city took place in the 1960s and 1970s. This area is primarily composed of two bedroom and three bedroom homes.
The closest grocery store in Alpine is typically only a reasonably short walk away. In addition, those who like to eat in restaurants will have a good number of opportunities, and a limited variety of coffee shops is available as well. As far as education is concerned, primary schools are straightforward to walk to from anywhere in Alpine. In contrast, Alpine does not have any high schools.
