Lincoln real estate guide & listings for sale
Lincoln offers a slower-paced ambience and will appeal to those who enjoy spending time outdoors. It is easy to access public green spaces from the majority of locations within the neighbourhood since there are about 10 of them close by for residents to visit. The noise levels in this part of Waterloo are also quite low, as the streets are calm - although that is not the case around Highway 85.
The best method to navigate Lincoln is usually a car. Many properties for sale are a rather short car ride from the nearest highway, such as Highway 85, and it is very easy to access a parking spot. In contrast, the public transit service in this part of the city is not very frequent. Nevertheless, the neighbourhood is served by about 10 bus lines, and most houses are very close to a bus stop. Lincoln is not especially well-suited for walking because few daily errands can be run without having to resort to a car. Lincoln is also not particularly cycling-friendly as there are a good number of elevation changes, and there are few bike lanes.
In Lincoln, most buildings are single detached homes, while large apartment buildings and townhouses are also present in the housing stock. Roughly 40% of properties in this area were constructed between 1960 and 1980, while the majority of the remaining buildings were built in the 1980s and the 1990s. This neighbourhood has a good choice of housing sizes, ranging from lofts to four or more bedrooms. About 70% of the population of this neighbourhood own their home and 30% are renters.
A grocery store is generally reachable within a reasonably short walk from most properties for sale in Lincoln. Additionally, this part of Waterloo is a fairly good place in which to eat out, and a limited selection of coffee shops is available as well. As far as education is concerned, there are only a limited number of primary schools in Lincoln and thus they can be an extended walk away. Moreover, Lincoln does not contain any high schools. Additionally, daycares are not especially abundant and consequently not always within walking distance.
