Carluke real estate guide & listings for sale
Carluke is reasonably quiet overall, as there isn't a lot of street noise or city clamour - however some areas can be quite noisy, especially near the airport (YHM). Access to public green spaces is very hard in the neighbourhood since they are sparse. Despite that, there are a few parks close by for residents to relax in.
Driving is very often the preferred way to get around in Carluke. It is very easy to park. The bike is a rather limited mode of transportation in this part of Hamilton as there are a good number of hills, and the cycling infrastructure is quite bad. Carluke is also not very well-suited for those who travel by foot because carrying out daily needs is very inconvenient by walking.
The housing stock of Carluke is composed predominantly of single detached homes and townhouses. About 45% of properties in this area were built pre-1960, while many of the remaining buildings were built in the 1960s and the 1980s. This part of Hamilton also has a choice of unit sizes - this neighbourhood is especially good for those looking for four or more bedroom homes. Nearly 95% of the units in the neighbourhood are occupied by homeowners and the rest are rented.
Primary schools are not abundant in Carluke, and thus often beyond walking distance, and there are no high schools. Additionally, parents may consider it very hard for their children to access daycares as a pedestrian. With regards to eating, in all but a very small number of cases, a vehicle is required to do groceries.
