Central real estate guide & listings for sale

Central is a fairly good neighbourhood to buy a house in for those who prefer a slower-paced ambience. This part of the city is reasonably quiet overall, as the streets are generally quite calm - however noise can be bothersome closer to Highway 401 or the railway line. Lastly, there are approximately 20 parks nearby for residents to visit and they are very well-distributed, resulting in them being very easy to get to from a large number of locations in Central.

Transportation

This area will draw physically active house buyers since it is quite well-suited for those who travel by foot; carrying out daily needs is easy by walking. Central is very car friendly. Many real estate listings are a short drive from the nearest highway, such as Highway 401, and it is convenient to come across a parking spot. On the other hand, this area is not especially transit friendly. Thankfully, there are around 10 bus lines crossing the neighbourhood, and most residences are very close to a bus stop.

Housing

Single detached homes are the predominant housing type, representing about 45% of buildings in Central, while the rest are mainly large apartment buildings and small apartment buildings. This part of Oshawa offers mainly two bedroom and three bedroom homes. The split between homeowners and renters is about even. Most housing in this neighbourhood was constructed prior to the 1960s, during its largest building boom.

Services

The nearest grocery store in Central is usually only a short walk away. In addition, Central is a fairly good place in which to eat out, and there are also a few coffee shops in this part of Oshawa. It is also a rather short distance to a decent choice of clothing stores. When it comes to education, daycares and schools are easy to reach on foot from anywhere in this area.
