Smith real estate guide & listings for sale
The character of Smith is exemplified by its relaxed ambience. This part of Maple Ridge is very quiet, as noise from streets and other parts of the city is rarely an issue. Finally, although Smith does not contain any parks, green spaces are especially well-situated in nearby neighbourhoods, which makes them easy to get to.
The favoured approach to navigate Smith is very often a car. It is especially convenient to park. In contrast, the public transit system in this part of the city is not very practical. Nonetheless, there are a few bus lines traversing the neighbourhood, and the closest bus stop is generally just around the corner. Smith is not very cycling-friendly as there are few bike lanes, and there is a significant amount of elevation changes. It is also very impractical for pedestrians to navigate this neighbourhood because almost no daily needs can be carried out by walking.
Roughly 95% of the properties in the neighbourhood are occupied by homeowners whereas the remainder are rented. In this neighbourhood, almost all dwellings are single detached homes, while duplexes are the main alternative in the housing stock. About 45% of properties in this area were constructed in the 1960s and 1970s, while the majority of the remaining buildings were built pre-1960 and in the 1980s. This part of Maple Ridge also has quite a good choice of housing size options - although this neighbourhood is particularly good for those looking for three bedroom homes.
Families will appreciate the proximity to daycares and schools, which are within walking distance from the majority of properties for sale in Smith. Regarding eating, in all but a few cases, a vehicle is needed to buy groceries. However, property owners won't have to go far to take advantage of the nearest cafe, and residents of Smith can enjoy a few restaurants as well.
