Gemstone real estate guide & listings for sale
Gemstone is quiet overall, as noise from streets and other parts of the city is rarely an issue.
The car is very often the best transportation option in Gemstone. The majority of real estate listings are a rather short car ride from the nearest highway, and it is especially convenient to access a place to park. However, the public transit service in Gemstone is not very frequent. Thankfully, property owners benefit from a few bus lines, and the closest bus stop is usually just around the corner. This area is not very conducive to those who travel by foot since very few daily errands can be run without having to resort to a car.
About 40% of homes in Gemstone were constructed in the 1980s, while the majority of the remaining buildings were constructed in the 1960s and the 1990s. The housing stock of this part of the city is composed primarily of single detached homes and townhouses. About 90% of the population of this neighbourhood own their home and renters make up the remainder. This area has a good selection of unit sizes, ranging from lofts to four or more bedrooms.
This area does not have any high schools or primary schools. In addition, daycares are not very numerous and accordingly not always within walking distance. In terms of eating, in all but a few cases, a car is required to buy groceries. There are a few opportunities for those who appreciate close by restaurants and cafes.
