Blenkinsop real estate guide & listings for sale
Home buyers who prefer a relaxed ambience will enjoy Blenkinsop. There are about 10 public green spaces nearby for residents to check out and they are very well-spread out, which makes it easy to access them. This part of Saanich is also very quiet, as there isn't a lot of street noise or city clamour.
Blenkinsop is very car friendly. Most real estate listings are a reasonably short car ride from the nearest highway, and accessing a place to park is quite easy. However, commuting by public transit is challenging in Blenkinsop. Nevertheless, house owners are served by around 10 bus lines, and bus stops are not very far from most homes. This part of Saanich is not very convenient for those who travel by foot because many daily needs are inconvenient to carry out without the use of a vehicle.
Single detached homes are the most common housing type, representing many dwellings in Blenkinsop, while the rest are mainly duplexes. Roughly 40% of properties in this area were built between 1980 and 1990, while the majority of the remaining buildings were constructed pre-1960 and in the 1960s. This part of Saanich offers mainly three bedroom and four or more bedroom homes. Homeowners occupy around 80% of the units in Blenkinsop and 20% are rented.
In all but a few cases, a car is needed to do groceries. When it comes to education, families will value the proximity to primary schools, which are within walking distance from the majority of houses for sale in this neighbourhood. On the other hand, families may consider it challenging for their children to get to high schools on foot. Parents benefit from public and private elementary schools.
