Peterborough real estate guide & listings for sale
Peterborough offers a slower-paced atmosphere and will appeal to home buyers who enjoy spending time outdoors. Most areas in this city are quiet, as the streets are usually quite calm - although that is not the case closer to Highway 7 or the railway line. Lastly, there are over 100 public green spaces close by for residents to discover, which makes it easy to access them.
Driving is a very good transportation option in Peterborough. Accessing a place to park is quite easy. Peterborough is not very conducive to walking because few common errands can be run without the use of a vehicle.
Single detached homes are the predominant housing type, representing most buildings in Peterborough, while small apartment buildings are the main alternative in the housing stock. This city is primarily composed of four or more bedroom and three bedroom homes. About two thirds of the population of this city own their home and the remainder are renters. The buildings in this city are quite old, because about one third of its dwellings were constructed pre-1960, while the majority of the remaining buildings were built in the 1960s and the 1980s.
It is a reasonably short walk to access primary schools from most properties for sale in Peterborough. However, high schools are not particularly numerous and therefore may require a rather long walk to get to. At the primary level, there are both public and private schools. With respect to food, some, but not all, property owners in this city will live within walking distance of one of over 50 grocery stores. A small selection of restaurants and cafes is available as well.
