Bennington is a town located in Vermont, United States.
Bennington is reasonably good for those who prefer quiet surroundings, as noise from streets and other parts of the city is rarely an issue - however some areas can be quite noisy, especially close to the railway line or the airport (William H Morse State Airport).
Single detached homes are the most common housing type, representing roughly 60% of the dwellings in Bennington, while the remainder are mainly small apartment buildings. Around half of properties in this town were constructed prior to the 1960s, while many of the remaining buildings were built in the 1960s and the 1980s. This town also has a good selection of unit sizes; it is quite easy to find properties ranging from lofts to four or more bedrooms. About two thirds of the properties in the town are occupied by home owners whereas renters occupy the remainder.
Some home buyers in Bennington may be able to reach one of approximately 20 supermarkets on foot, while others will have to use a vehicle. There are also a few options for those who care about close by restaurants. With respect to education, it can be challenging to access high schools and primary schools on foot from houses for sale in Bennington. Apart from public schools, there are private elementary and secondary schools.
This town is an extraordinarily good part of the Bennington metropolitan area for driving. It is very convenient to access a parking spot, and the majority of properties for sale are a rather short car ride from the closest highway. However, the public transit service in Bennington is quite bad. Thankfully, the town is served by about 10 bus lines. Bennington is not very well-suited for traveling on foot because very few daily errands can be run without the use of a vehicle.
