Talbot-Grey real estate guide & listings for sale
Talbot-Grey is a reasonably good neighbourhood to buy a home in for those who prefer a calm environment. This area is quiet overall, as there isn't a lot of street noise or city clamour - although that is not the case near the railway line. Lastly, there are a few green spaces close by for residents to explore, such as Northeast Pioneers Greenway, and they are very well-situated, which results in them being very easy to reach from the majority of locations in this part of Winnipeg.
The favoured approach to get around in Talbot-Grey is very often driving. It is easy to come across a place to park, and most houses for sale are a short car ride from the closest highway. On the other hand, the public transit system in Talbot-Grey is somewhat poor. Nonetheless, there are a few bus lines traversing the neighbourhood, and the closest bus stop is generally just around the corner. This part of the city is not especially conducive to walking because few daily errands can be run without having to use a vehicle.

Single detached homes are the most common housing type, representing the majority of dwellings in this area, while townhouses are the main alternative in the housing stock. Most housing in this area was built before the 1960s, during its most significant construction boom. This part of the city also has a good variety of unit sizes; it is quite easy to find properties ranging from lofts to four or more bedrooms.
Families will welcome the proximity to both primary and secondary schools, which are within walking distance from all properties for sale in this part of the city.
