Kinburn real estate guide & listings for sale
Kinburn is reasonably quiet, as there isn't a lot of street noise or city clamour - although that is not the case closer to Highway 417 or the railway line. Parks are spread out sporadically, making them very difficult to reach from the majority of locations within this part of Ottawa. Despite that, there are a few green spaces nearby for residents to explore, including Kinburn Community Centre.
Kinburn is very car friendly. It is very easy to come across a parking spot. This neighbourhood is not very conducive to bicycling because the cycling network is not very well-developed, and there are a fair number of elevation changes for cyclists to brave. Walking is also not very practical for property owners in this area since almost no daily errands can be run without the use of a car.
The predominance of single detached homes in the housing stock of Kinburn is an important part of its character. About 30% of properties in this neighbourhood were built prior to the 1960s, while many of the remaining buildings were constructed in the 1960s and the 1980s. There is a higher proportion of three bedroom homes in this neighbourhood. Roughly 95% of the dwellings in the neighbourhood are occupied by homeowners and the rest are rented.
Kinburn does not have any high schools or primary schools. Furthermore, there are only a very small number of daycares and therefore they can be a very long walk away. With respect to eating, purchasing one's groceries usually demands the use of a vehicle in Kinburn.
