Spruce Grove real estate guide & listings for sale
Spruce Grove is reasonably good for those who like a quiet atmosphere, as there isn't a lot of street noise or city clamour - although that is not the case near the railway line.
The preferred way to move around in this part of the Greater Edmonton metropolitan area is very often a car. Many houses for sale are a reasonably short drive from the closest highway, and it is very convenient to access a parking spot. In contrast, the public transit network in this city is quite bad. Nonetheless, residents are served by a few bus lines, and bus stops are typically a short walk away. This city is not very conducive to walking since very few daily errands can be run on foot.
In Spruce Grove, around two thirds of dwellings are single detached homes, but small apartment buildings and townhouses are also present in the housing stock. This part of the Greater Edmonton metropolitan area offers mainly four or more bedroom and three bedroom homes. Homeowners occupy about three quarters of the properties in Spruce Grove whereas the remainder are rented. A majority of the houses available in the housing market in this city were built following the year 2000, when most of the housing growth happened.
In Spruce Grove, families will usually be able to get to primary schools on foot. However, high schools are not particularly plentiful and therefore tend to require an extended walk to get to. Parents are served by public and private schools at both the elementary and secondary school level. In terms of food, a fraction of house buyers in Spruce Grove may be able to reach one of around 10 grocery stores on foot, while others will need another means of transportation. A small number of restaurants and coffee shops can be found as well.
