Rosemount real estate guide & listings for sale
Rosemount is a reasonably good neighbourhood to buy a home in for those who prefer a slower-paced atmosphere. Public green spaces, including Kolb Greenway and Stanley Park Conservation Area, are very well-located and there are a few of them close by for residents to explore, making it easy to access them. This neighbourhood is quiet overall, as there isn't a lot of street noise or city clamour - although that is not the case closer to Highway 7 or Highway 85.
Rosemount is an extremely convenient part of Kitchener for travelling by car. Parking is quite easy, and nearby highways, such as Highway 85, are very easy to access from any home in this neighbourhood. However, getting around by transit can be difficult in Rosemount by reason of the low service level. Nevertheless, the neighbourhood is linked by a few bus lines, and bus stops are not very far from most properties. This part of Kitchener is not very bike-friendly because the bicycling network is rather poor, and there are a good number of hills. Walking is also not very common in Rosemount, even though many daily errands can be run on foot.
About 60% of the units in the neighbourhood are occupied by homeowners and 40% are occupied by renters. Single detached homes are the predominant housing type, representing about 60% of dwellings in this area, whereas the remainder are mainly small apartment buildings. About half of homes in this part of Kitchener were constructed pre-1960, while many of the remaining buildings were constructed in the 1960s. This area has a good selection of unit sizes, ranging from lofts to four or more bedrooms.
Families will welcome that wherever their property is located in Rosemount, daycares and schools are close by. Concerning eating, the nearest supermarket in this area is usually only a reasonably short walk away. Furthermore, those who like to dine in restaurants will have a good number of opportunities, and house buyers are served by a few cafes as well.
