Chartwell real estate guide & listings for sale
The character of Chartwell is exemplified by its relaxed ambience. Parks are very well-located and there are approximately 20 of them close by for residents to visit, which makes it very easy to reach them. This part of West Vancouver is also good for those who need a quiet atmosphere, as there are low levels of noise from traffic - although that is not the case around Trans-Canada Highway.
Driving is an excellent transportation option in Chartwell. Most real estate listings are a short drive from the nearest highway, such as Trans-Canada Highway, and it is especially convenient to find a place to park. However, public transit riders may experience few choices in this neighbourhood as a result of the service's low frequency. Nevertheless, homeowners have access to a few bus lines, and the nearest bus stop is typically just around the corner. Travelling on foot is not very practical for house buyers in this neighbourhood because most daily needs are challenging to carry out by walking. Cycling is also very hard in Chartwell since there is a significant amount of hills, and the bicycling network is quite poor.
The large proportion of single detached homes in the housing stock of Chartwell is an important part of its character. Around 45% of properties in this neighbourhood were built in the 1960s and 1970s, while most of the remaining buildings were built pre-1960 and in the 1980s. This area is notable for those looking for four or more bedroom homes. Homeowners occupy around 85% of the units in the neighbourhood and 15% are rented.
Both primary and secondary schools are easy to reach on foot from most houses for sale in Chartwell. However, there are only a few daycares and therefore they can be an extended walk away. With respect to food, house buyers in this part of the municipality usually have to turn to a car to purchase groceries.
