Ruskin real estate guide & listings for sale
The character of Ruskin is exemplified by its relaxed atmosphere. It is easy to access public green spaces and there are a few of them close by for residents to unwind in. This area is reasonably quiet overall, as the streets are generally peaceful - although that is not the case near the railway line.
Ruskin is an extremely good part of Maple Ridge for driving. Parking is generally easy. In contrast, Ruskin is not a very convenient part of Maple Ridge for getting around by public transit. Nonetheless, there are a few bus lines traversing the neighbourhood, and it is easy to reach a nearby bus stop from most homes. Ruskin is not very suitable for walking as running daily errands is practically impossible on foot. The bike is a rather poor means of transportation in Ruskin since cyclists encounter a considerable amount of slopes, and the bicycling network is quite poor.
In Ruskin, around 85% of dwellings are single detached homes, while duplexes are also present in the housing stock. This part of Maple Ridge is primarily composed of three bedroom and four or more bedroom homes. Homeowners occupy nearly 90% of the units in Ruskin while the rest are rented. About one third of homes in this area were constructed between 1960 and 1980, while the majority of the remaining buildings were built pre-1960 and in the 1980s.
Ruskin does not contain any high schools or primary schools. Likewise, daycares are not abundant and thus tend to require a very long walk to get to. In terms of food, home buyers in Ruskin almost always have to rely on a vehicle to purchase their groceries.
