Cambridge real estate guide & listings for sale
The character of Cambridge is exemplified by its relaxed atmosphere. Most areas in this city are quiet, as the streets are generally calm - however noise can be bothersome closer to one of the railway lines, Highway 8 or Highway 401. Lastly, it is easy to get to parks from most locations in the city, since there are over 50 of them close by for residents to discover and a large number of properties have a park that is occasionally difficult to get to.
The car is usually the best way to navigate this city. Parking is generally easy. On the other hand, commuting by transit can be challenging in Cambridge due to the service's low frequency. Nevertheless, there are approximately 20 bus lines passing through the city, and the closest bus stop is generally very close. This city is not very well-suited for walking as many daily needs are impractical to meet on foot. Biking is also challenging in Cambridge as there is a significant amount of elevation changes, and the bicycling network is rather poor.
In Cambridge, around 60% of dwellings are single detached homes, while the remainder are mainly small apartment buildings and townhouses. This city is primarily composed of four or more bedroom and three bedroom homes. Homeowners occupy about 70% of the dwellings in Cambridge and the rest are rented. Roughly one quarter of homes in this city were built in the 1960s and 1970s, while the majority of the remaining buildings were built pre-1960 and in the 1980s.
Primary schools are convenient to reach on foot from any location in this city. In contrast, there are only a few high schools and accordingly they can be a rather long walk away. Families have the option of public and private schools at both the primary and secondary school level. With respect to food, accessing one of over 50 supermarkets by walking is an option for some, but not all, property owners in this city. There are also over 350 restaurants and coffee shops in Cambridge.
