Central real estate guide & listings for sale

People who prefer a calm atmosphere will enjoy Central. The noise levels in this part of the city are low, as the streets are usually peaceful - although that is not the case near Highway 401 or the railway line. Finally, it is very easy to access public green spaces since there are about 20 of them close by for residents to relax in.

Transportation

This neighbourhood will draw active people as it is reasonably convenient for those who travel by foot, although common amenities such as banks or hair salons can be an occasionally long walk away. Central is not an especially pleasant part of Oshawa for getting around by public transit. Nonetheless, the neighbourhood is connected by about 10 bus lines, and bus stops are not very far away from most properties. In contrast, driving is usually the favoured transportation option in Central. It is easy to access a place to park, and many properties for sale are a short car ride from the nearest highway, such as Highway 401.

Housing

In Central, about 45% of buildings are single detached homes, whereas the rest are mainly large apartment buildings and small apartment buildings. This neighbourhood also has a good selection of unit sizes; it is quite easy to find houses ranging from lofts to four or more bedrooms. There are equal parts renters and owners living in this neighbourhood. Most of the houses available in the housing market in this neighbourhood were built pre-1960, when most of the housing growth happened.

Services

In this area, families will typically be able to access schools and daycares by walking. Parents are served by public and private secondary schools. With regards to food, a grocery store is generally accessible within a short walk from anywhere in this area. In addition, those who like to eat in restaurants will have a fair number of options, and property owners benefit from a few cafes as well.
