Blackburn real estate guide & listings for sale
Blackburn is reasonably quiet, as there isn't a lot of street noise or city clamour - however some areas can be quite loud, especially close to the railway line. Parks aren't well-distributed, resulting in them being rather challenging to reach from most locations within the neighbourhood. Despite that, there are a few green spaces close by for residents to discover.
Driving is an excellent transportation option in Blackburn. It is especially convenient to park. It is very challenging for pedestrians to move around in Blackburn as almost no common errands can be run on foot.
About 90% of the units in the neighbourhood are occupied by homeowners while the rest are rented. The sizeable proportion of single detached homes in the housing stock of this area is an important part of its character. Roughly one third of properties in this neighbourhood were constructed in the 1960s and 1970s, while the majority of the remaining buildings were constructed pre-1960 and in the 1980s. This part of the city is primarily composed of four or more bedroom and three bedroom homes.
There are only a very small number of primary schools in Blackburn and therefore they can be a very long walk away. Additionally, this part of Prince George does not have any high schools. With regards to food, home buyers in this area almost always have to rely on a car to do their grocery shopping.
