Shipyard real estate guide & listings for sale
Shipyard is a very good neighbourhood to buy a house in for those who prefer a calm ambience. This area is very quiet, as noise from the streets and other parts of the city is rarely an issue. Finally, most locations within the neighbourhood have reasonably good access to green spaces, such as Rotary Park, since there are a few of them close by for residents to visit.
Travelling by car is very convenient in Shipyard. It is very easy to come across a place to park, and the majority of real estate listings are a reasonably short drive from the nearest highway. Shipyard is not particularly well-suited for those who travel by foot as running daily errands is inconvenient.
Single detached homes are the predominant housing type, representing around 45% of dwellings in Shipyard, and the remaining properties are mainly small apartment buildings.
