Lakeview real estate guide & listings for sale
The character of Lakeview is exemplified by its slower-paced ambience. There are a few public green spaces close by for residents to enjoy, which makes them very easy to reach. This part of Calgary is also very quiet, as the streets are very tranquil.
This part of the city is very car friendly. Accessing a place to park is generally easy. In contrast, Lakeview is not very transit friendly. Nevertheless, residents are served by a few bus lines, and bus stops are not very far-removed from most homes. Despite the fact that the area is reasonably flat, Lakeview is not very bicycling-friendly since. This part of the city is also not very well-suited for walking as very few daily needs can be carried out on foot.
The majority of the properties in Lakeview were built in the 1960s and 1970s, while most of the remaining buildings were constructed pre-1960. Single detached homes are the predominant housing type, representing most dwellings in this part of Calgary, and the rest are mainly small apartment buildings and townhouses. Homeowners occupy about three quarters of the units in Lakeview whereas renters occupy the remainder. This neighbourhood offers mainly three bedroom and four or more bedroom homes.
Parents and their schoolchildren will welcome that wherever their home is located in Lakeview, both primary and secondary schools are close by. However, there are only a few daycares and thus they can be a rather long walk away. As far as food is concerned, accessing the closest supermarket on foot is possible for some, but not all, home buyers in this neighbourhood. A limited number of restaurants and coffee shops can be found as well.
