Derby real estate guide & listings for sale
Derby is reasonably quiet overall, as there are usually low levels of noise from traffic - however some parts can be quite noisy, especially closer to the railway line.
Derby is especially car friendly. Finding a place to park is quite easy. Derby is not very suitable for walking since almost no common errands can be run without having to use a car.
The sizeable percentage of single detached homes in the housing stock of Derby is an important part of its character. Around one third of properties in this part of the Greater Miramichi metropolitan area were constructed before the 1960s, while many of the remaining buildings were built in the 1960s and the 1980s. This parish also has quite a good choice of housing size options - this parish is notable for those looking for three bedroom homes. Roughly 95% of the units in the parish are occupied by homeowners while the remainder are rented.
There are only a very small number of primary schools in this parish and therefore they can be a very long walk away. Likewise, this part of the Greater Miramichi metropolitan area does not have any high schools. When it comes to eating, in all cases, a vehicle is required to purchase groceries.
