Murrayville real estate guide & listings for sale
The character of Murrayville is exemplified by its slower-paced environment. There are approximately 10 green spaces close by for residents to visit and they are very well-situated, resulting in them being easy to get to from the majority of locations in this neighbourhood. This part of the municipality is also good for those who like a quiet atmosphere, as there isn't a lot of street noise or city clamour - although there are still several noisier areas, especially closer to the airport (YNJ).
Moving around by car is very convenient in this part of Langley. It is especially convenient to park. However, travelling by transit can be difficult in Murrayville by reason of the low service level. Thankfully, homeowners have access to a few bus lines, and bus stops are ordinarily nearby. It is challenging to commute by bike in this neighbourhood as there is a considerable amount of elevation changes, and the cycling infrastructure is not very extensive. Walking is also not very feasible for property owners in this area as very few daily needs can be carried out without the use of a vehicle.
In Murrayville, about 40% of dwellings are single detached homes, whereas the rest are mainly small apartment buildings, duplexes, and townhouses. This part of the municipality offers mainly two bedroom and four or more bedroom homes. Homeowners occupy around 80% of the properties in Murrayville and renters occupy the remainder. Most housing in this neighbourhood was built in the 1990s, during its biggest construction boom.
Reaching the closest grocery store by walking is practical for some, but not all, property owners in Murrayville. There are also approximately 20 restaurants and cafes in Murrayville. As far as education is concerned, in this part of Langley, parents and their kids will generally be able to get to primary schools on foot. However, there are only a limited number of high schools and consequently they can be an extended walk away. Along with public schools, there are private elementary and secondary schools.
