Chatham real estate guide & listings for sale
Chatham is a fairly good neighbourhood to buy a home in for those who prefer a slower-paced atmosphere. There are over 50 parks nearby for residents to explore and they are very well-situated, making it easy to reach them. This part of Chatham-Kent is also quiet, as the streets are usually tranquil - although there are still several noisier sections, especially around one of the railway lines.
The car is usually the preferred way to navigate this neighbourhood. It is very easy to park. Travelling on foot is not very feasible for house buyers in Chatham since meeting daily needs is impractical by walking.
Single detached homes are the predominant housing type, representing roughly two thirds of buildings in Chatham, while small apartment buildings make up most of the remaining housing stock. This part of Chatham-Kent has a good selection of housing size options, ranging from lofts to four or more bedrooms. Homeowners occupy around two thirds of the units in Chatham whereas the remainder are rented. About one third of properties in this part of the municipality were built in the 1960s and 1970s, while many of the remaining buildings were constructed pre-1960.
Accessing one of about 20 supermarkets by walking is practical for some, but not all, home buyers in this area. A small selection of restaurants and cafes can be found as well. Concerning education, parents and their children will appreciate that wherever their house is situated in Chatham, primary schools are close by. However, high schools are not especially plentiful and consequently not always within walking distance. Besides public schools, there are private primary and secondary schools.
