Petawawa real estate guide & listings for sale
Petawawa is fairly good for those who prefer quiet surroundings, as there isn't a lot of street noise or city clamour - however some parts can be quite noisy, especially near the railway line or one of the 2 airports (YTA, YWA).
This town is very car friendly. It is especially convenient to park. It is very difficult for pedestrians to get around in Petawawa because running common errands is very impractical.
In Petawawa, roughly 70% of dwellings are single detached homes, and the rest are mainly townhouses. About one third of properties in this town were built in the 1960s and 1970s, while many of the remaining buildings were constructed pre-1960 and in the 1980s. This town is primarily composed of four or more bedroom and three bedroom homes. Roughly two thirds of the population of this town own their home whereas the remainder are renters.
High schools and primary schools are not numerous in Petawawa, and therefore not always within walking distance. Likewise, parents may find it very hard for their children to reach daycares as a pedestrian. When it comes to eating, it is very rarely an option for property owners in Petawawa to travel to the closest grocery store on foot.
