Cumberland real estate guide & listings for sale
The noise levels in Cumberland are low, as the streets tend to be reasonably peaceful - although there are still several louder sections, especially closer to Inland Island Highway.
The car is usually the favoured way to navigate Cumberland. It is very convenient to park, and the majority of real estate listings are a rather short drive from the closest highway, such as Inland Island Highway. On the other hand, this village is not very transit friendly. Nonetheless, there are a few bus lines. Travelling on foot is not very practical for home buyers in this village as running common errands is very challenging by walking.
Many dwellings are single detached homes, making it easy to find detached homes in Cumberland, and the rest of the houses are mainly townhouses. This village also has a variety of unit sizes - this part of the Courtenay metropolitan area is particularly good for those looking for three bedroom homes. Homeowners occupy about three quarters of the dwellings in Cumberland and the remainder are rented. The homes in this village are quite old, because roughly one third of its dwellings were constructed pre-1960, while most of the remaining buildings were built in the 1960s and the 1990s.
High schools and primary schools are not very numerous in Cumberland, and therefore not always within walking distance. Additionally, it can be difficult to access daycares on foot. When it comes to food, a portion of residents in Cumberland may be able to do groceries by walking, while others will need another means of transportation. Residents benefit from approximately 10 restaurants and cafes as well.
