Sydney River real estate guide & listings for sale

Sydney River is quiet overall, as the streets are generally peaceful - however noise can be problematic closer to the railway line. Green spaces aren't well-spread out, which results in them being rather difficult to get to from most locations within this community. Still, there are a few parks close by for residents to visit.


Sydney River is especially car friendly. It is very convenient to come across a parking spot, and many houses for sale are a short drive from the closest highway. This part of Cape Breton is not very suitable for those who travel by foot as very few common errands can be run without having to resort to a car.


The predominant housing types in Sydney River are single detached homes and townhouses. This community offers mainly four or more bedroom and three bedroom homes. Homeowners occupy roughly 85% of the properties in the community and renters occupy the remainder. This community did not experience a single building boom; the construction of new homes in Sydney River was spread throughout multiple decades in the twentieth and twenty-first century.


A portion of residents in this area may be able to shop for groceries by walking, while others will have to turn to a vehicle. Residents are served by around 20 restaurants and cafes as well. Concerning education, high schools and primary schools are not particularly numerous in this part of the municipality, and consequently tend to be an extended walk away. Additionally, it can be challenging to access daycares on foot.
