Brock real estate guide & listings for sale
People who prefer a calm environment will enjoy Brock. This neighbourhood is reasonably good for those who need quiet areas, as the streets tend to be peaceful - although that is not the case around Highway 406. Finally, green spaces are very well-distributed and there are a few of them close by for residents to relax in, resulting in them being easy to access from many locations within Brock.
The preferred method to navigate Brock is very often a car. The majority of properties for sale are a reasonably short drive from the closest highway, such as Highway 58, and it is especially convenient to park. In contrast, this area is not a very convenient part of St. Catharines for moving around by public transit. Nevertheless, there are about 20 bus lines crossing the neighbourhood, and most houses are near a bus stop. This area is not very conducive to walking because carrying out daily needs is difficult.
In Brock, the majority of dwellings are single detached homes, and the remainder are mainly large apartment buildings. This neighbourhood experienced its largest building boom between 1960 and 1980, so most of the available housing is from this era. This part of the city offers mainly three bedroom and four or more bedroom homes. About 70% of the population of this neighbourhood own their home while renters make up the remainder.
In this part of St. Catharines, families will commonly be able to reach primary schools by walking. In contrast, there are no high schools in Brock. Concerning eating, accessing the nearest supermarket on foot is an option for some, but not all, property owners in Brock. A small number of restaurants and cafes can be found as well.
