Fitzroy real estate guide & listings for sale
Fitzroy is very quiet overall, as there are low levels of noise from traffic. The majority of locations in the neighbourhood have fairly good access to public green spaces, including Campbell Bicentennial Park, since they are sparse. Still, there are a few parks nearby for residents to discover.
Fitzroy is very car friendly. It is very convenient to access a place to park. The bike is a rather poor mode of transportation in this part of Ottawa as the cycling infrastructure is quite bad, and there is a significant amount of elevation changes. It is also very difficult for pedestrians to navigate Fitzroy as almost no daily needs can be carried out without the use of a car.
About one quarter of homes in Fitzroy were built between 1960 and 1980, while most of the remaining buildings were constructed pre-1960 and in the 1980s. Single detached homes and row houses are the predominant housing type in this neighbourhood. Roughly 95% of the units in the neighbourhood are occupied by homeowners and 5% are rented. This area also has quite a good selection of housing sizes - although this part of Ottawa is notable for those looking for three bedroom homes.
House buyers in this part of Ottawa almost always have to turn to a car to travel to the closest grocery store. Concerning education, there are only a very small number of primary schools in Fitzroy and accordingly they can be a very long walk away. In addition, this neighbourhood does not contain any high schools.
