Whonnock real estate guide & listings for sale
The character of Whonnock is exemplified by its slower-paced environment. This part of Maple Ridge is very quiet overall, as there isn't a lot of street noise or city clamour. Finally, green spaces are easy to get to and there are a few of them close by for residents to enjoy.
The car is usually the favoured way to get around in this part of Maple Ridge. Parking is easy. However, Whonnock is not very transit friendly. Thankfully, there are a few bus lines traversing the neighbourhood, and the closest bus stop is usually a short walk away. Whonnock is not very well-suited for those who travel by foot since carrying out daily needs is very impractical. This part of the city is also not very cycling-friendly because cyclists encounter a significant amount of elevation changes, and there are very few bike lanes.
The predominance of single detached homes in the housing stock of Whonnock is an important part of its character. About one third of properties in this part of Maple Ridge were constructed after the year 2000, while the majority of the remaining buildings were built pre-1960 and in the 1960s. This area also has quite a good variety of unit sizes - there is a higher proportion of four or more bedroom homes in this part of the city. Roughly 90% of the properties in the neighbourhood are occupied by homeowners and renters occupy the remainder.
There are only a few primary schools in this area and consequently they can be an extended walk away. Likewise, this neighbourhood does not have any high schools. Moreover, it can be very hard to reach daycares on foot. With respect to eating, house buyers in Whonnock almost always have to rely on a vehicle to do their grocery shopping.
