Brock real estate guide & listings for sale
Brock offers a calm environment and will appeal to those who enjoy spending time outdoors. It is easy to get to public green spaces since there are a few of them close by for residents to relax in. This neighbourhood is also quiet, as the streets are generally reasonably calm - although that is not the case around Highway 406 or Highway 58.
Driving is a great transportation option in this area. Nearby highways, such as Highway 58, are quite easy to reach from anywhere in this area, and it is very convenient to park. On the other hand, this part of the city is not very transit friendly. Thankfully, the neighbourhood is linked by approximately 20 bus lines, and bus stops are generally close by. Travelling on foot is not very practical for property owners in this part of St. Catharines because very few daily errands can be run without the use of a car.
The sizeable percentage of single detached homes in the housing stock of Brock is an important part of its character. This part of the city experienced its most significant building boom between 1960 and 1980, so most of the available properties are from this time period. This area is primarily composed of three bedroom and four or more bedroom homes. Around 70% of the population of this neighbourhood own their home whereas the rest are renters.
In Brock, parents and their kids will often be able to reach primary schools on foot. On the other hand, there are no high schools in this neighbourhood. With respect to eating, some, but not all, property owners in Brock will live within walking distance of the nearest grocery store. There are also about 30 restaurants and cafes in Brock.
