Riverview real estate guide & listings for sale
Riverview offers a calm atmosphere and will appeal to home buyers who enjoy spending time in green spaces. This neighbourhood is reasonably quiet, as noise from streets and other parts of the city is rarely an issue - although that is not the case closer to the railway line. Finally, public green spaces, including Donald Riverbank and Churchill Drive Park, are especially well-situated and there are a few of them close by for residents to enjoy, which makes them very easy to reach from most locations in the neighbourhood.
It is convenient for pedestrians to get around in this part of the city, although carrying out daily needs is at times difficult by walking. The public transit network in Riverview is sometimes poor. Nonetheless, there are a few bus lines crossing the neighbourhood, and bus stops are ordinarily nearby. On the other hand, Riverview is an extraordinarily good part of Winnipeg for travelling by car. Many properties for sale are a short car ride from the closest highway, and it is easy to park.
About 70% of the properties in the neighbourhood are occupied by homeowners and 30% are rented. The predominance of single detached homes in the housing stock of this part of the city is an important part of its character. A majority of the housing growth in this neighbourhood took place prior to the 1960s. This area is primarily composed of two bedroom and three bedroom homes.
It is easy to reach the nearest supermarket on foot from most houses for sale in this area.
