Fairville real estate guide & listings for sale
Fairville is a fairly good neighbourhood to buy a house in for those who prefer a relaxed atmosphere. There are a few parks close by for residents to unwind in, such as Wolastoq Park, and they are very well-situated, which makes it easy to reach them. This part of Saint John is also good for those who enjoy a quiet atmosphere, as there are generally low levels of noise from traffic - however some areas can be quite loud, especially closer to the railway line.
Fairville is especially car friendly. Parking is generally easy, and many houses for sale are a short car ride from the closest highway. Walking is not very practical for home buyers in Fairville as carrying out daily needs is impractical.
Around half of properties in Fairville were built before the 1960s, while many of the remaining buildings were constructed in the 1960s. Single detached homes are the predominant housing type, representing roughly 45% of buildings in this area, but small apartment buildings and duplexes are also present in the housing stock. Homeowners occupy around 55% of the dwellings in Fairville whereas the rest are rented. This area also has a good selection of unit sizes - homes range from lofts to four or more bedrooms.
Both primary and secondary schools are convenient to reach on foot from most houses for sale in this neighbourhood. However, it can be challenging to access daycares as a pedestrian. Concerning eating, the nearest grocery store in this area is usually only a reasonably short walk away. A limited variety of restaurants and coffee shops can be found as well.
