7 Houses for Sale in Rockway, Kitchener

of 0


The neighbourhood of Rockway can be found in the city of Kitchener, Ontario.


The best method to move around in this area is very often driving. The majority of houses for sale are a very short drive from the closest highway, such as Highway 8, and it is very convenient to find a place to park. On the other hand, the public transit system in this neighbourhood is rather poor. Thankfully, house owners are served by a few bus lines, and most residences are very close to a bus stop. Travelling by foot is not very common in this area, despite the fact that many daily needs are easy to carry out without the use of a vehicle. Rockway is also not very cycling-friendly as there is a significant amount of hills, and this neighbourhood is home to a rather limited bicycling infrastructure.


The nearest grocery store in this part of the city is usually only a reasonably short walk away. In addition, a restaurant is commonly just around the corner. It is also convenient to get to a selection of clothing stores on foot. In terms of education, families will appreciate the proximity to both primary and secondary schools, which are within walking distance from vast majority houses for sale in Rockway. However, daycares are not very plentiful and thus tend to require a long walk to get to.


One of the highlights of Rockway is its vast selection of green spaces. It is very easy to access parks since there are a few of them close by for residents to explore. As there are few pedestrians, this part of Kitchener is relatively quiet, although there can be higher levels of noise for those who are around Highway 7, Highway 8 or the railway line.


About 60% of the population of this neighbourhood own their home while renters make up the remainder. In this part of the city, most buildings are single detached homes, but small apartment buildings are also present in the housing stock. Most of the housing growth in this area took place prior to the 1960s. This neighbourhood offers mainly two bedroom and three bedroom homes.
