Barrie

Barrie is a city located within Ontario, Canada.

Housing

In Barrie, many dwellings are single detached homes, while the remainder are mainly townhouses. About 30% of properties in this city were constructed after the year 2000, while most of the remaining buildings were built pre-1960 and in the 1960s. This city offers mainly four or more bedroom and three bedroom homes. Homeowners occupy roughly three quarters of the units in Barrie and one quarter are rented.

Transportation

Driving is a great medium of transportation in Barrie. Many homes for sale are a reasonably short car ride from the nearest highway, such as Highway 400, and parking is generally easy. On the other hand, the public transit service in this city is not very frequent. Nevertheless, property owners benefit from the Allandale Waterfront Station and Barrie South Station on the Barrie Line. The city is connected by approximately 20 bus lines, and bus stops are usually nearby. Barrie is not very conducive to those who travel by foot because most daily needs are challenging to carry out by walking.

Services

It is a rather short walk to reach primary schools from most properties for sale in Barrie. However, high schools are not particularly numerous and accordingly may require an extended walk to get to. Families can choose between public and private schools at both the primary and secondary school level. Concerning eating, some, but not all, house buyers in Barrie will reside within walking distance of one of over 50 supermarkets. There are also a limited number of options for those who value nearby restaurants and cafes.

Character

Home buyers who prefer a calm ambience will enjoy Barrie. There are over 200 parks nearby for residents to unwind in, resulting in them being easy to access from the majority of locations in the city. Most areas in this city are quiet, as there are generally low levels of noise from traffic - however noise can be problematic closer to one of the railway lines or Highway 400.
