Montebello real estate guide & listings for sale
Montebello offers a calm environment and will appeal to those who enjoy spending time in green spaces. This neighbourhood is especially quiet overall, as noise from streets and other parts of the city is rarely an issue. Finally, it is easy to access green spaces since there are a few of them close by for residents to visit.
Montebello is especially car friendly. It is very easy to come across a place to park, and most properties for sale are a rather short drive from the closest highway. However, this area is not an especially pleasant part of Halifax for getting around by public transit. Thankfully, the neighbourhood is connected by a few bus lines, and bus stops are not very far from most residences. Walking is not very practical for house buyers in Montebello because most daily needs are challenging to meet on foot.
Roughly 40% of properties in Montebello were built between 1980 and 1990, while the majority of the remaining buildings were built in the 1960s and the 1990s. Single detached homes and townhouses are the main housing type in this area. About 90% of the units in the neighbourhood are occupied by homeowners while the rest are rented. This part of Halifax is primarily composed of four or more bedroom and three bedroom homes.
Parents and their children will appreciate the proximity to primary schools, which are within walking distance from most properties for sale in this neighbourhood. In contrast, high schools are not particularly abundant and consequently tend to require an extended walk to get to. With regards to food, it is very rarely possible for house buyers in this part of the municipality to do their grocery shopping on foot. There are a few opportunities for those who appreciate close by restaurants.
