Saint John West real estate guide & listings for sale
Saint John West offers a relaxed ambience and will appeal to home buyers who enjoy spending time outdoors. Green spaces, like Seaside Park, are very well-distributed and there are a few of them nearby for residents to visit, which makes them easy to reach. This part of Saint John is also quiet, as there are generally low levels of noise from traffic - although there are still several louder sections, especially closer to the railway line.
Driving is an excellent transportation option in this neighbourhood. The majority of homes for sale are a short car ride from the nearest highway, and it is very convenient to find a parking spot. This part of the city is not very well-suited for walking as many daily needs are challenging to carry out without having to resort to a car.
