Bayview Hill real estate guide & listings for sale
Home buyers who prefer a slower-paced environment will enjoy Bayview Hill. Public green spaces are easy to access since there are a few of them close by for residents to discover. This neighbourhood is quiet overall, as the streets are usually reasonably peaceful.
Cars are an excellent medium of transportation in this part of the town. It is a reasonably short car ride to the nearest highway from anywhere in this neighbourhood, and it is very easy to come across a place to park. However, public transit users may experience few choices in this area by reason of the service's low frequency. Thankfully, property owners are served by around 10 bus lines, and the nearest bus stop is generally very close. Even though the bicycling infrastructure is quite extensive, the bike is a somewhat poor mode of transportation in Bayview Hill since there are a fair number of slopes. Walking is also not especially practical for house buyers in this neighbourhood since few day-to-day errands can be run on foot.
Single detached homes and townhouses are the predominant housing type in Bayview Hill. Notably, this neighbourhood is good for those looking for four or more bedroom homes. Homeowners occupy roughly 95% of the dwellings in the neighbourhood and the remainder are rented. Around half of properties in this area were built between 1980 and 1990, while many of the remaining buildings were built in the 1990s.
It is a rather short walk to access both primary and secondary schools from anywhere in this part of Richmond Hill. At the elementary level, both public and private schools can be found. On the other hand, there are only a few daycares and therefore they can be a rather long walk away. When it comes to eating, property owners in this neighbourhood commonly have to turn to a vehicle to shop for their groceries. Nonetheless, reaching the nearest pharmacy and thus some staple foods is generally easy. A restaurant is commonly just around the corner.
