Carp real estate guide & listings for sale
Carp is quiet overall, as noise from the streets and other parts of the city is rarely an issue - although that is not the case near the railway line, the airport (YRP), Highway 417 or Highway 7. It is very hard to get to public green spaces in the neighbourhood since they are sparse. Still, there are a few parks nearby for residents to discover.
The best mode of transportation in Carp is very often a car. Parking is generally easy. Walking is not very convenient for home buyers in this neighbourhood as most daily needs are very inconvenient to carry out on foot. Bicycling is also challenging in Carp because the cycling infrastructure is not very well-developed, and the terrain is not particularly flat.
In Carp, around three quarters of dwellings are single detached homes, while townhouses make up most of the remaining housing stock. Most homes in this neighbourhood were constructed after the year 2000, during its most significant building boom. This area offers mainly four or more bedroom and three bedroom homes. Homeowners occupy about 90% of the units in Carp while the rest are rented.
There are only a very small number of primary schools in this neighbourhood and consequently they can be a very long walk away. Moreover, Carp does not have any high schools. In addition, parents and their children may find it very hard to access daycares on foot. In terms of eating, shopping for one's groceries usually necessitates the use of a vehicle in Carp.
