Blackburn real estate guide & listings for sale
The noise levels in Blackburn are low, as the streets tend to be reasonably calm - although that is not the case near the railway line. Parks aren't well-located, which makes them rather challenging to access. Still, there are a few public green spaces close by for residents to enjoy.
The preferred method of transportation in this area is very often driving. It is very convenient to find a place to park. Walking is not very practical for residents in Blackburn because almost no daily errands can be run without having to resort to a car.
The predominant housing types in Blackburn are single detached homes and row houses. This part of Prince George is primarily composed of four or more bedroom and three bedroom homes. About 90% of the dwellings in the neighbourhood are occupied by homeowners and 10% are rented. Roughly one third of homes in this neighbourhood were constructed between 1960 and 1980, while most of the remaining buildings were built pre-1960 and in the 1980s.
Home buyers in this area almost always have to use a car to travel to the nearest grocery store. With respect to education, there are only a very small number of primary schools in Blackburn and therefore they can be a very long walk away. Likewise, this part of the city does not have any high schools. Furthermore, parents and their schoolchildren may consider it very difficult to get to daycares as a pedestrian.
