Peterborough

Peterborough is a city located in Ontario, Canada.

Housing

Single detached homes are the main housing type, representing the majority of buildings in Peterborough, whereas the rest are mainly small apartment buildings. This city also has a good selection of housing size options - it is quite easy to find properties ranging from lofts to four or more bedrooms. Roughly two thirds of the population of this city own their home and renters make up the remainder. Around one third of properties in this city were constructed pre-1960, while many of the remaining buildings were built in the 1960s and the 1980s.

Transportation

Driving is a very good means of transportation in Peterborough. It is very convenient to find a place to park. It is impractical for pedestrians to get around in Peterborough because many daily needs are occasionally difficult to meet on foot.

Services

Accessing one of over 50 grocery stores on foot is possible for some, but not all, property owners in Peterborough. Residents benefit from over 350 restaurants and coffee shops as well. Concerning education, it is a reasonably short walk to access primary schools from most homes for sale in Peterborough. In contrast, high schools are not particularly plentiful and consequently not always within walking distance. At the primary level, there are both public and private schools.

Character

Peterborough offers a relaxed environment and will appeal to home buyers who enjoy spending time in green spaces. This city is reasonably quiet overall, as there tend to be low levels of noise from traffic - although that is not the case closer to Highway 7 or the railway line. Finally, public green spaces are easy to reach, since a large number of properties for sale have one relatively close by and there are over 100 parks nearby for residents to relax in.
