Forest Hills real estate guide & listings for sale
Forest Hills is very quiet, as there tend to be low levels of noise from traffic. Parks are sparse, which makes it rather difficult to get to them. Despite that, residents will be able to access parks in nearby neighbourhoods.
Driving is usually the preferred method to get around in this area. It is very convenient to find a parking spot. It is challenging for people walking to move around in Forest Hills because very few common errands can be run without having to use a vehicle.
Single detached homes are the most common housing type, representing roughly 45% of dwellings in Forest Hills, whereas the rest are mainly large apartment buildings, small apartment buildings, and duplexes. This part of Saint John is primarily composed of two bedroom and three bedroom homes. Roughly two thirds of the dwellings in the neighbourhood are occupied by homeowners and one third are rented. This part of the city experienced its biggest building boom between 1960 and 1980, so most of the available homes are from this time period.
Accessing the nearest grocery store on foot is an option for some, but not all, property owners in Forest Hills. A small variety of restaurants and cafes is available as well. As far as education is concerned, primary schools and daycares are convenient to access on foot from anywhere in this area. However, this part of Saint John does not contain any high schools.
