Birchwood Heights real estate guide & listings for sale
Birchwood Heights is fairly good for those who like a quiet atmosphere, as there isn't a lot of street noise or city clamour.
Driving is very often the best approach to get around in Birchwood Heights. Parking is easy, and most properties for sale are a reasonably short car ride from the nearest highway. However, Birchwood Heights is not an especially convenient part of Thunder Bay for moving around by public transit. Nevertheless, house owners benefit from a few bus lines, and the closest bus stop is usually very close. Most houses for sale in this part of the city are located in areas that are not particularly well-suited for walking because meeting daily needs is impractical.
Single detached homes are the main housing type, representing most dwellings in Birchwood Heights, while the remainder are mainly large apartment buildings. Around half of homes in this neighbourhood were constructed before the 1960s, while most of the remaining buildings were constructed in the 1960s. This part of Thunder Bay also has a good variety of housing sizes - it is quite easy to find properties ranging from lofts to four or more bedrooms. Homeowners occupy about three quarters of the units in Birchwood Heights and the remainder are rented.
Parents and their kids will value the proximity to both primary and secondary schools, which are within walking distance from vast majority homes for sale in Birchwood Heights. In contrast, it can be difficult to get to daycares as a pedestrian. In terms of eating, house buyers in Birchwood Heights will appreciate that a grocery store is always only a reasonably short walk away. Residents can enjoy a few restaurants and coffee shops as well.
