Ruskin real estate guide & listings for sale
The character of Ruskin is exemplified by its calm environment. This area is quiet overall, as the streets are generally quite peaceful - although that is not the case close to the railway line. Finally, parks are easy to access and there are a few of them nearby for residents to visit.
Ruskin is an extremely good part of Maple Ridge and Whonnock 1 for travelling by car. Accessing a parking spot is generally easy. However, travelling by public transit is very difficult in Ruskin. Nonetheless, house owners have access to a few bus lines, and most residences are near a bus stop. Biking is challenging in this neighbourhood since bike riders encounter a significant amount of slopes, and the bicycling infrastructure is quite poor. Ruskin is also not very suitable for walking since almost no daily needs can be met on foot.
Single detached homes and townhouses are the predominant housing type in Ruskin. This neighbourhood offers mainly three bedroom and four or more bedroom homes. Homeowners occupy nearly 90% of the dwellings in Ruskin and 10% are rented. Roughly one third of homes in this neighbourhood were built between 1960 and 1980, while the majority of the remaining buildings were constructed pre-1960 and in the 1980s.
There are no high schools and no primary schools in this area. Additionally, parents and their children may find it very difficult to access daycares as a pedestrian. Regarding food, house buyers in Ruskin almost always have to use a vehicle to buy their groceries.
