Sumas Prairie real estate guide & listings for sale
Sumas Prairie is quiet, as there are generally low levels of noise from traffic - however some parts can be quite loud, especially close to Trans-Canada Highway or the railway line. Parks are distributed sporadically, making it rather challenging to access them. Still, there are approximately 10 public green spaces close by for residents to relax in.
Sumas Prairie is especially car friendly. Parking is generally easy. This area is not very well-suited for those who travel by foot because meeting daily needs is very challenging.
In Sumas Prairie, most buildings are single detached homes, and the rest of the properties are mainly duplexes. This part of the city is primarily composed of three bedroom and four or more bedroom homes. About 70% of the properties in the neighbourhood are occupied by homeowners and the rest are rented. The homes in this neighbourhood are quite new, since roughly one quarter of its dwellings were constructed in the 1990s, while most of the remaining buildings were constructed pre-1960 and in the 1960s.
In all cases, a vehicle is needed to purchase groceries in one of about 10 stores. Regarding education, there are only a very small number of primary schools in this part of the city and consequently they can be a very long walk away. Moreover, Sumas Prairie does not have any high schools. In addition, it can be very difficult to get to daycares on foot.
