Brock real estate guide & listings for sale
Brock is a fairly good neighbourhood to buy a house in for those who prefer a relaxed ambience. There are a few parks close by for residents to discover and they are very well-distributed, which makes them easy to reach from the majority of locations in this part of the city. The noise levels in this area are also low, as the streets are generally quite tranquil - although that is not the case near Highway 406 or Highway 58.
The car is usually the preferred way to navigate Brock. It is very convenient to park, and it is a rather short drive to the closest highway, such as Highway 58, from any location in this area. In contrast, Brock is not very transit friendly. Thankfully, property owners have access to around 20 bus lines, and the closest bus stop is usually a short walk away. It is difficult for pedestrians to navigate this area because very few daily errands can be run on foot.
The predominance of single detached homes in the housing stock of Brock is an important part of its character. A majority of the housing growth in this neighbourhood occurred in the 1960s and 1970s. This part of the city is primarily composed of three bedroom and four or more bedroom homes. Homeowners occupy about 70% of the properties in Brock and renters occupy the remainder.
Primary schools are easy to access on foot from anywhere in Brock. In contrast, there are no high schools in this neighbourhood. When it comes to food, a portion of house buyers in Brock may be able to travel to the closest supermarket on foot, while others will have to use another means of transportation. A limited number of restaurants and coffee shops are available as well.
