Brookville real estate guide & listings for sale
Brookville is quiet, as there are generally low levels of noise from traffic - however some areas can be quite noisy, especially close to the railway line. Parks are sparse, which makes them rather difficult to access from a large number of locations within this part of Saint John. Despite that, residents will be able to access public green spaces in nearby neighbourhoods.
The car is usually the best transportation option in Brookville. It is especially convenient to park, and many real estate listings are a short drive from the closest highway. It is very challenging for people travelling on foot to get around in Brookville because very few daily needs can be carried out without having to resort to a car.
Roughly 80% of the units in the neighbourhood are occupied by homeowners and 20% are rented. The predominance of single detached homes in the housing stock of this area is an important part of its character. About 45% of properties in this area were constructed in the 1960s and 1970s, while most of the remaining buildings were constructed pre-1960. This area is primarily composed of four or more bedroom and three bedroom homes.
Brookville does not have any high schools or primary schools. Likewise, daycares are not numerous and consequently not always within walking distance. With respect to eating, a vehicle is typically needed in Brookville to access the nearest grocery store.
