Old Town real estate guide & listings for sale
Old Town is very good for those who enjoy a quiet atmosphere, as the streets are generally very tranquil.
The car is very often the favoured transportation option in Old Town. It is very easy to park. However, public transit riders may have limited choices in Old Town due to the service's low frequency. Nonetheless, homeowners have access to a few bus lines, and the nearest bus stop is usually close by. Old Town is not very well-suited for walking as carrying out daily needs is difficult.
The predominance of single detached homes in the housing stock of Old Town is an important part of its character. Around one quarter of properties in this area were constructed following the year 2000, while many of the remaining buildings were constructed pre-1960 and in the 1960s. This neighbourhood offers mainly four or more bedroom and three bedroom homes. About 90% of the dwellings in the neighbourhood are occupied by homeowners whereas the rest are rented.
Accessing the closest supermarket by walking is an option for some, but not all, home buyers in this neighbourhood. There are also a few opportunities for those who value restaurants and cafes in close proximity. When it comes to education, there are only a few high schools and primary schools in this area and thus they can be a rather long walk away. Furthermore, families may find it difficult for their kids to access daycares as a pedestrian.
