St. Albert real estate guide & listings for sale
St. Albert is very good for those who prefer quiet surroundings, as there isn't a lot of street noise or city clamour.
St. Albert is very car friendly. Most real estate listings are a rather short car ride from the nearest highway, and it is very convenient to access a place to park. On the other hand, St. Albert is not an especially pleasant part of the Edmonton metropolitan area for travelling by public transit. Thankfully, homeowners benefit from about 20 bus lines, and bus stops are not very far away from most residences. It is difficult for pedestrians to get around in this part of the Edmonton metropolitan area since running daily errands is inconvenient by walking.
Single detached homes and townhouses are the predominant housing type in St. Albert. This city offers mainly three bedroom and four or more bedroom homes. Homeowners occupy about 85% of the dwellings in the city and the remainder are rented. The homes in this city are quite new, since about one third of its buildings were built in the 1960s and 1970s, while the majority of the remaining buildings were constructed in the 1980s and the 1990s.
In St. Albert, families will commonly be able to get to both primary and secondary schools by walking. This city is served by top high schools, such as École Secondaire Sainte Marguerite d'Youville. In contrast, parents and their children may consider it difficult to reach daycares as a pedestrian. When it comes to eating, reaching one of about 20 grocery stores on foot is practical for some, but not all, property owners in St. Albert. Residents are served by over 150 restaurants and coffee shops as well.
