Aurora real estate guide & listings for sale
The character of Aurora is exemplified by its slower-paced atmosphere. There are over 50 parks nearby for residents to unwind in, like Foxtail Ridge Rear, making them easy to access. This part of the Greater Toronto metropolitan area is reasonably quiet overall, as the streets are peaceful - however some parts can be quite loud, especially closer to one of the railway lines or Highway 404.
Aurora is very car friendly. It is especially convenient to park. However, this town is not very transit friendly. Nonetheless, commuters profit from the Aurora Station with access to the Barrie Line. House owners are served by approximately 20 bus lines, and the closest bus stop is typically a short walk away. The bicycle is a sometimes poor means of transportation in Aurora as there are a limited number of bike lanes, and cyclists are faced with a considerable amount of slopes. Aurora is also not very convenient for walking as running common errands is impractical on foot.
In Aurora, around 60% of dwellings are single detached homes, while townhouses make up most of the remaining housing stock. This town offers mainly three bedroom and four or more bedroom homes. Around 85% of the units in the town are occupied by homeowners while renters occupy the remainder. Roughly 30% of properties in this town were built after the year 2000, while many of the remaining buildings were constructed pre-1960 and in the 1960s.
Some, but not all, home buyers in Aurora will live within walking distance of one of about 30 supermarkets. A limited variety of restaurants and coffee shops can be found as well. As far as education is concerned, in Aurora, families will commonly be able to reach primary schools on foot. In contrast, high schools are not especially numerous and accordingly not always within walking distance. Besides public schools, there are private primary and secondary schools.
