Masson-Angers real estate guide & listings for sale
Masson-Angers is reasonably good for those who need a quiet atmosphere, as there are low levels of noise from traffic - however some parts can be quite loud, especially close to the railway line or Autoroute de l'Outaouais.
The car is usually the best means of transportation in Masson-Angers. It is very convenient to come across a parking spot, and most real estate listings are a reasonably short drive from the nearest highway, such as Autoroute de l'Outaouais. In contrast, Masson-Angers is not a very pleasant part of Gatineau for getting around by public transit. Thankfully, property owners benefit from a few bus lines, and it is convenient to find a nearby bus stop from most homes. Although some pleasant sectors for cycling can be found, the bicycle is a fairly poor means of transportation in Masson-Angers because riding is made strenuous by the typically sloping terrain, and there are few bike lanes. Travelling on foot is also not very feasible for house buyers in Masson-Angers since most daily needs are very difficult to carry out on foot.
Around 30% of properties in Masson-Angers were constructed after the year 2000, while many of the remaining buildings were constructed in the 1960s and the 1980s. The predominant housing types in this part of the city are single detached homes and townhouses. Homeowners occupy around three quarters of the properties in the sector and renters occupy the remainder. This sector offers mainly two bedroom and three bedroom homes.
There are only a few primary schools in this sector and accordingly they can be an extended walk away. In addition, Masson-Angers does not have any high schools. Furthermore, parents and their children may consider it difficult to access daycares as a pedestrian. With respect to food, in most, if not all, cases, a car is required to shop for groceries. There are also a few opportunities for those who care about close by restaurants.
