Cape Horn real estate guide & listings for sale
People who prefer a relaxed ambience will enjoy Cape Horn. This part of the city is quiet overall, as there are generally low levels of noise from traffic - however some areas can be quite noisy, especially around Trans-Canada Highway. Lastly, parks are very well-distributed and there are about 10 of them close by for residents to unwind in, which makes it very easy to get to them.
Driving is usually the preferred approach to navigate Cape Horn. It is a rather short car ride to the nearest highway, such as Trans-Canada Highway, from anywhere in Cape Horn, and it is very convenient to access a parking spot. On the other hand, public transit riders may experience few options in this area as a result of the infrequent service. Nonetheless, there are a few bus lines traversing the neighbourhood, and bus stops are not very far from most houses. Travelling on foot is not very convenient for residents in Cape Horn since most daily needs are inconvenient to meet on foot. Despite the fact that there are a fair number of bike lanes, commuting by bicycle is also sometimes challenging in this part of the city because cyclists are faced with quite a few elevation changes.
Around 45% of homes in Cape Horn were built between 1960 and 1980, while most of the remaining buildings were constructed pre-1960 and in the 1980s. In this part of the city, about 55% of buildings are single detached homes, and the rest of the dwellings are mainly duplexes and townhouses. About 80% of the units in the neighbourhood are occupied by homeowners and the remainder are rented. This area offers mainly three bedroom and four or more bedroom homes.
Getting to the nearest supermarket on foot is practical for some, but not all, house buyers in Cape Horn. A limited number of restaurants and coffee shops can be found as well. When it comes to education, in Cape Horn, parents and their kids will usually be able to reach schools and daycares by walking.
