City Centre real estate guide & listings for sale
Home buyers who prefer a slower-paced environment will enjoy City Centre. This part of Kamloops is quiet overall, as the streets are usually reasonably tranquil - although that is not the case near one of the railway lines. Lastly, there are about 10 green spaces close by for residents to enjoy and they are very well-distributed, making it easy to access them.
The preferred mode of transportation in City Centre is very often driving. The majority of houses for sale are a reasonably short car ride from the nearest highway, such as Trans-Canada Highway, and it is straightforward to park. In contrast, City Centre is not an especially pleasant part of Kamloops for travelling by public transit. Thankfully, the neighbourhood is linked by about 10 bus lines, and the closest bus stop is usually just around the corner. Walking is not particularly practical for property owners in City Centre as few common errands can be run on foot.
Single detached homes are the predominant housing type, representing about one third of dwellings in City Centre, and the rest are mainly large apartment buildings and small apartment buildings. Roughly 45% of homes in this area were built prior to the 1960s, while many of the remaining buildings were constructed in the 1960s and the 1990s. This area has a good selection of unit sizes, ranging from lofts to four or more bedrooms. The proportions of renters and homeowners are about even.
House buyers in City Centre will be pleased to learn that a grocery store is always only a rather short walk away. Likewise, property owners won't have to look far to take advantage of the nearest cafe, and there are also a limited number of options for those who care about close by restaurants. When it comes to education, families will value the proximity to daycares and schools, which are within walking distance from most properties for sale in City Centre. Residents benefit from public and private schools at both the primary and high school level.
