Twin Brooks real estate guide & listings for sale
Twin Brooks is a wonderful neighbourhood to buy a house in for those who prefer a relaxed ambience. This area is especially quiet, as the streets are generally very calm. Finally, it is very easy to get to green spaces from the majority of locations in the neighbourhood, since reaching one from the majority of properties for sale is easy and there are a few parks nearby for residents to visit.
The car is very often the best transportation option in this area. Most real estate listings are a short car ride from the nearest highway, and it is especially convenient to park. On the other hand, Twin Brooks is not an especially pleasant part of Edmonton for travelling by public transit. Nevertheless, house owners have access to about 20 bus lines, and it is very easy to find a nearby bus stop from most homes. It is inconvenient for people walking to move around in this part of Edmonton as very few daily needs can be carried out by walking. In contrast, bicycling is easy in this area because riding a bike is made easier by the generally flat terrain, and this neighbourhood features a very good cycling infrastructure.
Single detached homes and townhouses are the main housing type in Twin Brooks. However this neighbourhood is particularly good for those looking for four or more bedroom homes. Homeowners occupy nearly 95% of the dwellings in Twin Brooks and 5% are occupied by renters. Most of the housing growth in this neighbourhood happened in the 1990s.
House buyers in Twin Brooks usually need a vehicle to access the nearest supermarket. A small variety of coffee shops can be found as well. When it comes to education, families will appreciate the proximity to daycares and primary schools, which are within walking distance from the majority of houses for sale in Twin Brooks. On the other hand, this part of the city does not contain any high schools.
