Centennial real estate guide & listings for sale
Centennial is quiet, as the streets are usually quite peaceful - although that is not the case around the railway line or Highway 401. Green spaces are sometimes hard to get to since they aren't well-situated. Still, there are a few parks nearby for residents to relax in.
Centennial is an extremely convenient part of Cambridge for moving around by car. Most real estate listings are a short drive from the nearest highway, such as Highway 401, and it is very convenient to park. In contrast, the public transit service in Centennial is not very frequent. Nevertheless, residents are served by a few bus lines, and it is very convenient to find a nearby bus stop from most properties. It is impractical for people walking to move around in Centennial as very few daily needs can be carried out without the use of a vehicle. Biking is also challenging in this neighbourhood as this part of the city is home to a rather limited cycling infrastructure, and riding is rendered arduous by the typically sloping area.
In Centennial, most dwellings are single detached homes, and the rest of the houses are mainly small apartment buildings and townhouses. This neighbourhood also has a good selection of housing sizes - properties range from lofts to four or more bedrooms. Roughly 70% of the units in the neighbourhood are occupied by homeowners and 30% are rented. Around 40% of homes in this part of Cambridge were constructed between 1960 and 1980, while most of the remaining buildings were constructed pre-1960 and in the 1980s.
Home buyers in this neighbourhood will be pleased to learn that a grocery store is always only a reasonably short walk away. Residents benefit from a few restaurants and cafes as well. When it comes to education, parents and their kids will value that no matter where their house is located in this part of the city, primary schools and daycares are nearby. However, high schools are not particularly abundant and consequently not always within walking distance.
