City Centre real estate guide & listings for sale
City Centre is a fairly good neighbourhood to buy a home in for those who prefer a relaxed ambience. This part of Kamloops is reasonably quiet, as the streets are usually quite calm - although there are still several noisier areas, especially near one of the railway lines. Lastly, parks are very well-situated and there are around 10 of them nearby for residents to check out, making it easy to get to them.
City Centre is an extraordinarily convenient part of Kamloops for driving. Most properties for sale are a rather short car ride from the closest highway, such as Trans-Canada Highway, and parking is easy. On the other hand, travelling by transit can be difficult in City Centre as a result of the service's low frequency. Thankfully, the neighbourhood is served by about 10 bus lines, and bus stops are not very far away from most homes. It is at times difficult for pedestrians to get around in City Centre as running common errands is occasionally challenging.
In City Centre, roughly one third of dwellings are single detached homes, while large apartment buildings and small apartment buildings make up most of the remaining housing stock. Around 45% of properties in this area were built before the 1960s, while most of the remaining buildings were constructed in the 1960s and the 1990s. This part of the city is primarily composed of one bedroom and two bedroom homes. The proportions of homeowners and renters are about even.
Property owners in City Centre will be pleased to learn that a grocery store is always only a reasonably short walk away. Likewise, this area is a good place in which to eat out or go to a cafe, for example along Victoria Street. When it comes to education, parents and their kids will welcome the proximity to daycares and schools, which are within walking distance from most properties for sale in City Centre. Along with public schools, there are private elementary and high schools.
