Sydney River real estate guide & listings for sale

Sydney River is fairly good for those who enjoy quiet surroundings, as there are generally low levels of noise from traffic - although there are still several noisier areas, especially near the railway line. Parks aren't well-spread out, which makes them rather difficult to reach from a lot of locations in the community. Despite that, there are a few public green spaces close by for residents to discover.


The preferred approach to get around in this part of the municipality is very often driving. Many homes for sale are a short car ride from the closest highway, and accessing a parking spot is easy. Travelling on foot is not very practical for property owners in this part of the municipality as many daily needs are impractical to meet without having to use a vehicle.


Homeowners occupy around 85% of the dwellings in Sydney River and the rest are rented. The predominant housing types in this community are single detached homes and townhouses. This community did not experience a single building boom; the construction of new dwellings in Sydney River was spread throughout multiple decades in the twentieth and twenty-first century. This part of Cape Breton is primarily composed of four or more bedroom and three bedroom homes.


Some, but not all, home buyers in this part of the municipality will live within walking distance of the closest supermarket. A limited number of restaurants and cafes are available as well. Regarding education, families may find it difficult to reach high schools and primary schools on foot. In addition, daycares are not very abundant and thus tend to require an extended walk to get to.
