Howie Centre real estate guide & listings for sale
Howie Centre is very quiet, as there are generally low levels of noise from traffic. It is rather difficult to access public green spaces from the majority of locations within the community since they aren't well-spread out. Still, there are a few parks nearby for residents to unwind in.
Driving is usually the favoured approach to get around in Howie Centre. Accessing a place to park is quite easy. Howie Centre is not very well-suited for walking as running common errands is very inconvenient on foot.
Howie Centre did not experience a single building boom; the construction of new buildings in this community was spread throughout multiple decades in the twentieth and twenty-first century. Single detached homes are the predominant housing type, representing roughly 70% of buildings in this area, while mobile homes are also present in the housing stock. Homeowners occupy about 90% of the properties in the community and the rest are rented. This part of Cape Breton also has quite a good choice of unit sizes; there is a higher proportion of three bedroom homes in this community.
There are only a limited number of primary schools in this community and therefore they can be a long walk away. Furthermore, this part of Cape Breton does not have any high schools. Additionally, daycares are not abundant and thus not always within walking distance. When it comes to food, in all cases, a vehicle is required in this area to reach the closest supermarket.
