Caulfeild real estate guide & listings for sale
People who prefer a relaxed atmosphere will enjoy Caulfeild. There are approximately 30 parks close by for residents to discover and they are very well-distributed, which results in them being easy to reach from most locations in this part of the municipality. Most areas in this neighbourhood are quiet, as the streets are usually reasonably peaceful - however noise can be an issue closer to the railway line or Trans-Canada Highway.
The preferred method to get around in Caulfeild is very often a car. It is a rather short drive to the closest highway, such as Trans-Canada Highway, from any home in Caulfeild, and finding a parking spot is generally easy. However, the public transit network in this area is not very accessible. Nevertheless, there are a few bus lines passing through the neighbourhood, and most properties are very close to a bus stop. The bicycle is a quite bad means of transportation in Caulfeild since bicycling is made strenuous by the typically hilly terrain, and there are very few bike lanes. Walking is also not very convenient for property owners in this area because carrying out daily needs is very difficult on foot.
Single detached homes are the predominant housing type, representing around 85% of dwellings in Caulfeild, and the rest are mainly townhouses.

Around one third of homes in this part of the municipality were constructed in the 1960s and 1970s, while most of the remaining buildings were constructed pre-1960 and in the 1980s.
Some, but not all, house buyers in this part of the municipality will live within walking distance of the nearest grocery store. Residents are served by a few restaurants and coffee shops as well. When it comes to education, primary schools are convenient to access on foot from anywhere in Caulfeild. On the other hand, there are only a limited number of high schools and consequently they can be an extended walk away.
