Centennial Scarborough real estate guide & listings for sale
Centennial Scarborough offers a relaxed atmosphere and will appeal to home buyers who enjoy spending time outdoors. This area features a fair amount of greenery as there are numerous tree-lined streets. There are approximately 20 public green spaces nearby for residents to enjoy, including Lower Highland Creek Ravine and East Point Park, and they are especially well-distributed, making them very easy to reach. This neighbourhood is reasonably quiet overall, as there isn't a lot of street noise or city clamour - although there are still several louder sections, especially close to the railway line, Highway 2A or Highway 401.
The public transit system in Centennial Scarborough is good. In particular, the neighbourhood is linked by a few bus lines, and bus stops are commonly nearby. On the other hand, Centennial Scarborough is not very suited for biking as there is a significant amount of slopes, and the bicycling infrastructure is fairly poor. This part of the city is not very convenient for walking since common errands are sometimes challenging to run without the use of a car. However, the favoured approach to get around in Centennial Scarborough is usually driving. The majority of houses for sale are a rather short car ride from the nearest highway, such as Highway 2A, and it is very convenient to come across a place to park.
In Centennial Scarborough, the vast majority of buildings are single detached homes, while townhouses make up most of the remaining housing stock. Around 45% of properties in this neighbourhood were built between 1960 and 1980, while many of the remaining buildings were constructed in the 1980s and the 1990s.

Families will appreciate the proximity to primary schools, which are within walking distance from most, if not all, homes for sale in this part of Toronto. In contrast, high schools are not very numerous and thus tend to require an extended walk to get to. At the primary level, there are both public and private schools. Concerning food, property owners in Centennial Scarborough will value that a grocery store is always only a rather short walk away. Residents benefit from around 10 restaurants and coffee shops as well.
